Thumbs up Washburn Dime

I might be getting a Washburn Dime in the next few days off ebay (I hope), but my question is this how good is it? I know the greatest metal guitar player that ever lived uses it, but is it better than ohhh I dont know a Gibson Gothic Explorer? And rate the Dime from 1-10 (10 highest).

I played one, I'de say it deserved an 8

but I don't know what kinda model it was, but the playability is great, and if you're into the looks, it rocks!

the only thing you'll need is a bunch of descent pickups, maybe the dimebuckers from seymour duncan or some other kickass pickups, the only thing that wasn't up to standards where the pickups...

i would use that son of a bitch for fire wood in hell!!!!!!
i give it a -10!
just cause dime uses it dosent mean it rocks.
i think you are an idiot if you are going to buy a guitar and you have to ask all the rest of the idiots here if it is even good.

Only thing I remember from when I last played a Dime guitar is that it was heavy (as in lots of weight).

Who has the right to ban ppl? I mean, I'm not anti-christian in any way, but this Jesus dude needs to take a long walk off a short pier immediately.

yes, it is.

but bashing the guitar is just as stupid, haha, it's not a bad guitar at all.

the weight is ok, if you're used to les paul's, but the body is pretty friggin' huge.

point taken G_urr_A

There is a reason I asked you guys about the Dime, that is here at my local music store they only have fenders, gibsons, eppiphone's (I hope I got the name right), and B.C. Rich's so if I want to play the fucking thing I have to order it in for $40.

i'd rather pay 40 bucks to order it in, test it, and find out if you like it or not, instead of spending how ever much you paid on ebay. Considering the chance that you may not like it.

if you go to google and type in "review washburn dime" theres probably a website that reviews it and you dont have to do the 40 buck thing
