This isn’t quite the same guitar that Dime designed back then. While the regular Razorback Vs have a scale length of 24.75 inches and 22 frets, the 255 offers a longer, Strat-style scale of 25.5 inches and 24 frets.

That extra length is designed to appeal to guitarists that like down-tuned riffing. Dimebag’s specification in 2004 was for the Razorback V to feature Seymour Duncan Dimebucker pickups, but the 255 features active EMG 81 and 85 items. But while the evolved design deserves credit, has it jeopardised what made the Razorback V so great in the first place?
