The Razorback V is an electric guitar designed by Dean Guitars and Dimebag Darrell in 2004 shortly before his death. It is a more aggressive looking version of the Dean V, and similar to the Dean Razorback. Corey Beaulieu of Trivium is known for using this guitar[1] It has the more spikey version of the Dean Guitar headstock and the body is an enlarged reversed image of the head. There is also a bass guitar version of the Razorback V shape.[2]

The Dean Razorback V standard, two tone and USA made models are shipped with a choice of either EMG pickups, or a Seymour Duncan SH13 Dimebucker at the bridge. They are currently shipped in the following colours: Black, Metallic red, Black with red bevels, Black with green bevels, Black with yellow bevels, Black with silver bevels, Metallic White with black bevels.

The Dean Razorback V is also available with a 25.5 scale length neck, this gives the V 24-frets, and is much easier to play the higher notes on the guitar. This is called to Dean Razorback V 255. This model is shipped in black with silver or yellow bevels.

Corey Beaulieu[edit]

Corey Beaulieu, one of the guitarists in Trivium, was one of the first guitarists to use the Dean Dime Razorback V. He used to use the USA Razorback V Explosion, USA Razorback V Red with Black Bevels, the USA made Razorback V with the Skull graphics, USA Blood Angel V Razorback, and his own signature model, the CBV 1122, a drastic variation on the original design. Corey Beaulieu sported the first ever made red Razorback V. Corey no longer plays Dean. He changed to Jackson Guitars when Matt Heafy moved on to Gibson. He now plays a Jackson V and a Jackson Randy Rhoads V. Matt Heafy plays a Gibson Les Paul Custom.
