Buddy Blaze teams up with the guitar he fell in love with over 25 years ago.
The Dean/Buddy Blaze ML has a unique “chrome flame” graphic, and features a top mount Floyd Rose tremolo similar to the one that Buddy installed in Dimebag’s world famous Dean From Hell. It also includes other features that Blaze is known for, such as his middle and bridge pickup positions equipped with custom wound Dean DMT pickups.
While Blaze is no stranger when it comes to voicing his passion for MLs since the early-eighties, Dean Guitars CEO, Elliott Rubinson, shares a similar admiration and respect for the long-time guitar builder.
“We have the highest regard for Buddy’s talents and we realized that the new Dean/Blaze ML would incorporate the features that many players would find very appealing and a departure from what we are currently producing,” said Rubinson.
After a meeting held in Tampa, FL, at the Dean Guitars headquarters, Blaze and Rubinson realized they were on the same page and Blaze could start getting his hands dirty with fresh designs and ideas.
“I asked that we do a complete design and he allowed me to reinvent my favorite Dean model,” said Blaze. “I insisted on top quality components and rigid adherence to my design elements; Elliott and the Dean team delivered!”
When asked about what the new Dean/Blaze ML design and custom wound DMT pickups can provide any and all guitarists, Blaze’s response was simple.
“The Dean/Blaze ML and Dean DMT pickups just scream tone.”
- 2 octave neck
- 3 degree neck angle (allows Floyd Rose to pull up even more and increases player comfort)
- Top mount genuine Floyd Rose Tremolo
- Buddy Blaze designed graphic with V-neck carve
- Unique middle pickup placement (greater clarity for shredding in neck position)
- Buddy Blaze designed flame mother of pearl inlays on rosewood fretboard
- Dean DMT custom pickups

Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters are designed to offer a fat midrange and a smooth top end.
Billy Corgan was looking for something for heavier Smashing Pumpkins songs, so Joe Naylor designed the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One pickup. Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters have a fat midrange and a smooth top end. This pickup combines the drive and sustain of a humbucker with the percussive attack and string clarity of a P90. Get beefy P90 tone plus amp-pummeling output with the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One.
Patented Railhammer Pickups take passive guitar pickups to a new level with rails under the wound strings lead to tighter lows, and poles under the plain strings offer fatter heights. With increased clarity, the passive pickup’s tone is never sterile.
