This is just simply a great guitar.Keep in mind the floyd rose is licensed but I have dive bombed on this guitar repeatedly and it does not go out of tune.The 255 comes with active EMG pickups.Mine is not the 255 version but the one just under it, but I know the EMG's simply scream as a fellow musicians has these pickups and they are brutal.

My Dime V came with a dimebucker but still is a very good pickup.

You may want to have the action set by a Luthier to your preference. I was able to adjust mine with some ease but I have playing quite a while. Also, do you homeowork on floyd's before you change the strings or you could be hurtin'.The bridge must be blocked before removing the strings or you will throw the whole set up off.Also, floyd's require the balls on the string to be cut before being placed into the bridge.This is not about this particular guitar, floyd's are great tremolos but you must have some basic knowledge of how they work.

Product Description:
The Razorback V 255 is the next generation in the Razorback Series, built on that same shape that's just one of many Dimebag ideas kept alive at Dean today. This axe screams "metal." Take a listen: with high-output active EMG pickups, a Floyd Rose tremolo, Grover tuners, and solid Dean construction, you'll hear it. Plus, the extended long 25.5-inch scale is great for all the drop-tuners out there.

Dime It
The late great Dimebag Darrell is a serious metal guitar hero, and Dean's series of Dimebag models pays homage. Dimebag started playing Dean ML style guitars in the late '70s, and made it one of the most recognizable shapes today. Dean offers a wide variety of Dimebag models to choose from, all boasting Dimebag's distinctive look and tons of mojo and attitude. Mahogany Body
Dean uses a mahogany body for this Razorback V.Mahogany is a common choice for electrics, dependably delivering a warm, full tone with plenty of punch and sustain. Set Neck Construction
This axe features a set mahogany neck, which imparts all the well-known advantages of that style: a warmer overall tone with extended low-end response, wicked sustain, and easy upper-fret access (enhanced even further by the cutaways). The 25.5-inch scale neck features a rosewood fingerboard, decorated with arrow inlays and a "Dime razor" inlay at the 12th fret.EMG Active Pickups
The Razorback V 255 offers serious tone with its pair of active EMG humbuckers. In the bridge position is a high-output 81. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the 81 delivers incredible amounts of high end cut and fluid sustain, so your leads can cut through the densest mix.

In the neck position the Elite features an 85. It's a slightly more well-rounded version of the aggressive 81. With close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets, the 85 offers plenty of versatility, with a muscular growl and smooth lead tones, perfect for the muddiest of blues to the most extreme metal. On the electronics front this axe keeps it simple, with a three-way toggle between pickups and volume/tone controls. Grover Tuners
If you play guitar then you know what this means--solid, dependable tuning from the industry standard. These guitar machines are a triumph in engineering and style, with a gear ratio of 14:1, perfect gear meshing, and zero backlash and slippage. The gear box has a special lubricant for lifetime, trouble-free service.
Licensed Floyd Rose Tremolo
The patented and often imitated double-locking design of the Floyd Rose tremolo allows you to lock your guitar in tune at the nut and at the bridge. Engineered like no other tremolo system, the Floyd's high-quality steel parts are manufactured to exacting specifications. Beat it up as much as you want--from traditional vibrato to dive bombing leads or flapping loose strings, and stay in tune while you do it. DBD Traction Knobs
Dimebag always rocked his "traction knobs," which he created by taking a soldering iron to them, for knobs that are grippable no matter how much sweat's pouring off you on stage. Dean faithfully recreates that here.
