This is my latest addition. This is a prototype that I got from Funky Munky.

Wouldn't  some U.S.A  Dimes be nice!  My wife doesn't like the price of them so, I do not have any. But I can't complain she has let me do all this. The Rebel to the right is a wash sig that I finally found in a  gc in Nevada. The one I'm searching for now is the fm slimebolt. Need one bad. Trying to unload my fm rebel ,a warhead that needs some attention and a fm dime /Rhoads tribute to fund a slimebolt. And thanks man

yes sir ,seen the one on ebay . joined this site to get info on these  dimes. searched far and wide trying to get better info on manuf dates and stuff but mostly is speculation from self proclaimed guitar gurus. hope joining here helps out . been collecting for several years and have stayed away from the USA models simply cause of price. collect alot of memorabilia from dime and pantera. the pic you refer to is from Rita Haney. She sent it to me awhile back along with some other cool s**t. Our home is in Texas, outside Nacogdoches in east Texas but currently workin in Ohio.

Good deal. I have been researching these things for a couple of years and there is limited info on the overseas models. Don't have any USA dimes but it is all the same to me. Yeah we came and rode around in your hood a couple of years ago when I was workin in ft. Worth. Stopped and had a beer with dime and hung out for awhile. The Asian models are of lesser value but there has to be some small significants to some I believe due to the fact that mom and dad bought these things for junior not knowing what the future would hold for Dime. A lot I have come across we're abused to the tee. Like I said any info or good resources to look into would be great man. Hope the weather there is better than here cause we've seen the teens several times this past week, just waitin on the snow now. Pass on some of that knowledge brother.

Those Funky Munky's & Boogie Streets are FINE Guitars man, it does NOT have to be a USA to get Dime's sound or something! 50% of the Sound is in Your Hands! That White one you got plays almost like a USA , just Not as heavy, & little things ...If you have Super-Sonic Hearing like myself and are VERY picky then you might notice the difference in SUSTAIN, how long a note last when you hold it down in the 2 guitars...Funky M. did a Good Job, as well as Boogie....I had an Indonesian Boogie "CROSS' Guitar and most people thought it was USA , I am just a Picky Brat , so I had to go for the Southern Cross, there is a Difference in wood, definitely! Some of your guitars might be ALDER WOOD, Some MAHOGANY....The Original DIME3 So.Cross came with AAA BRAZILIAN or HONDURAN Mahogany WOOD, TOP NOTCH! This is the Bottom Line....If you can Play , then Quality goes out the Window! Don't get me wrong , YES it is AWESOME to own the USA DIME3 , but it seems that I have been seeing more guys who can play, and they own the "Lower End" guitars, and I see the guys with the Super expensive guitars, well most seem like they can't hit a note to save their life! :D

If you want his Sound I would work on a RIG , unless you got one already....His Ol' Skool stuff is going $$$ A LOT OF MONEY these days, so collect the Randall RG/ES 100's or Century 200's, MXR Flangers, Blue 6 BAND EQ, etc...and all that other stuff he used....But RANDALL has some NEW Amps that Sound pretty Freakin' COOL, I think it's the RG1503 . WHOO this Amp CHUGS, and I want me one! Any questions just ask Bro, later!

Hey FANTOM69, I sent you a PM , check it out and read it closely if you wanna check out my collection , sorry no link , but it will instruct you how to get there...That White Funky Munky , I always thought that was the Coolest one they did besides the SlimeBolt! 8) Boogie Street Washburn makes an AWESOME Asian made Guitar, the Korean BoogieBolts and the "CROSS" are Great guitars, They made a USA version of the BoogieBolt too, it was the last run of Dime3 Washburn's ever, & probably the BEST and Considered the "ROLCE ROYCE" of the Dime3 Guitars...But you have a Very Nice collection, Dime would of been Proud! ;) 8)

I would love to have a cross. I told my wife when I get my hands on one that's all I'm gettin. And man is she waitin for me to get one. Prolly couldn't afford one even if I found one. If I could catch someone who would do some tradin I could prolly pull it off. And yes I have been thinking of puttin a rack together just ain't got there yet.

Are you talking about the Original Dime3 Southern Cross or the remake of it , called just simply "The CROSS"? I sold mine about 8 months ago, the remake that is and it went to a forum member on here actually, He LOVES it and says it's his Favorite Guitar! He is a Bit younger than me , but He got a GREAT deal on it! I Sold it to him for $1000 and the Cheapest I have seen em' for is like $1500 or $2000!!! But I sold it so I could get the Original one, and "Oh Man , I LOVE that Guitar! Either one are both pretty good actually! As a matter of fact it might be better to pay $1000 for something that might be Asian made but plays like a USA , than to spend $3000 to $5000 for the Original! And this is coming from someone who owns the Original, N=Man people are STINGING people with prices on these guitars! I had one stolen back in 1997, yes the story again people, I had an Autographed Slime USA and it got Jacked out of mMy ride!!! There are pictures of it on this forum too! But yeah good guitars, if you ever need a USA , let me know as I seem to always know a guy selling ...
