Dimebag Darrell’s Washburn Dime 3 “Dime Slime”

This is one of many Washburn guitars that Dime started using around 1995. This guitar in particular featured a green and yellow sunburst finish, so Dimebag nicknamed it “Slime”.

Based on the photos available, he likely owned several of these guitars, the most famous of which was the one with a green Volkswagen sticker on it seen in the photo below. That guitar in particular was equipped with a Seymour Duncan SH1-N’59 pickup in the neck position, and possibly another Seymour Duncan pickup in the bridge. However, most of the other “Dime Slimes” that he played had a Bill Lawrence L-500XL pickup in the bridge.
