28: Zakk Wylde_Black Label Society,Painted Guitar
Zakk Wylde of Black Label Society, Painted Dean ML electric Guitar This ML was painted by Dime's best friend Zakk Wylde. Zakk is the frontman for Black Label Society, as well as guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne. This piece was created in collaboration with Rob Arvizu who does the artwork for Black Label Society. Zakk states "I wanted to have lightning bolts on the guitar because that was Dime's signature trademark on his original 'Dean From Hell' ML. The BLS Skully is on there because Dime was the epitome of what Black Label is all about. Hell, he even had it tattooed on his forearm and was laid to rest in his BLS colors." This is a one-of-a-kind full playable and displayable Instrument of Art. Complete with electronics, pick-ups, strings and hardware installed at Dean USA. It is hand-painted or otherwise decorated by the artist who’s name is associated with the guitar. Proceeds from the auction of this guitar go to support LITTLE KIDS ROCK, one of the most exciting music education programs available to public schools in America. This guitar is one of over sixty pieces created for Six-String Masterpieces: The Dimebag Darrell Art Tribute.
