Well, one really...for now. I've got a few other tricks up my sleeve, but first up, one of the guitars that launched a thousand riffs: Dimebag Darrell's Blue Dean ML.

I bow down to Dean. Me <3's my Dean Flying V.

I also bow down to Dimebag. Right as I started getting into Pantera Dimebag left the world. I would give anything to go back in time and meet him. He seemed like such a down-to-earth guy. Plus, he could shred like no other.

+rep on the pure awesomeness. Looks really great :up:.

Edit: Looks kinda like a black and white watercolor. Very cool.

Thanks .Mal. These are going to be simple photo manipulations of guitars (and the people who play em) that I find inspiring.

In other words, it's going to be DT's version of "Who's Who in Rock Guitar."

And of course, a "Who's Who" list isn't complete without Jimmy Page and his Les Paul:

Steve Vai's Ibanez JEM


While this isn't the current model that Steve plays, I always liked this guitar because of its sickening paintjob. Green and pink are not two colors that you see together much anymore.

The late, great Stevie Ray Vaughan:


More to come. I've barely scratched the surface.

I've been meaning to get back to this for some time now--there's a lot of ground to cover still.

Here's an interesting take on The Reverend Billy G of ZZ Top and his beloved 'Pearly Gates'
