DEAN electric guitar

Dimebag Dean From Hell ML Lefty is a left-handed version of the electric guitar built in 1977 by Dean Zelinsky. Dimebag’s favorite guitar shape. He often used it in studio recordings and concert tours. Later this guitar became popular among metal fans, especially legendary Pantera band fans.

‘Dean From Hell’ takes its place in Dean’s left-handed guitars.

The Dimebag Dean from Hell is a tribute to the guitar that Dimebag Darrell recorded, toured with, used and abused, and thrilled and amazed an army of fans. Dean from Hell is like the lightning bolt model on the platinum “Cowboys from Hell” album cover.
