I was so smitten with my Angelus and always wanted a Dellinger so the moment one popped up on Ebay, I jumped on it. It's a 2005 Dellinger SE HGS and was in remarkably good condition even so far as not having any chips out of the headstock tip. Mahogany body, maple neck and the thickest, BLACKEST piece of ebony I have seen this side of a 50s Martin. The bridge pickup has been replaced at some point with an Evo 2 which is a pretty sweet pickup although I'm still getting used to it. The neck and middle Caparison pickups are incredibly bright, like a 60s style strat.
Despite it's layout and the fact it looks like a shredders guitar, the neck is meaty. Starts at a U profile at the headstock and contouring to a nice round c around the 7th fret. It's definitely no Wizard, it's got a Les Paul thickness to it which I love. Plenty to grab onto which is the way I prefer it. Also, that ebony. I have never seen a nicer piece on a regular production guitar, incredibly tight grain and it's an incredibly thick piece. The attention to detail is top notch, even little things like the trem plate and control cover being made from aluminum and the huge limunlay dots.
That's it for me and buying guitars for a long while, I'm going to clear out the majority and just hold onto a select few.
One of the joys of having a macro lens (Canon 100mm 2.8 USM for my photo nerds) is being able to capture the fine detail of quality woods. Unfortunately this wood has tiny pores so the toan isn't completely fat.
Looks killer V6.
