Thanks dude.. I think I will go for the Washburn instead...It's cheaper and has a good quality...About the Roland Cube, it is a good practice amp if not great but for jamming with my band, its not that loud until I added up another distortion. I use 2 distortion pedals at once (MXR Dime and Boss Metal Zone) and it added up huge amounts of volume that my earwax started to drip LOL (just kidding). Anyway, I ordered a set of Dragonfire active pickups but it hasn’t arrived yet but I think it will also make this amp SCREAM. Thanks for the info about the import washys dude. Have a good day....

Cheers...

I was in a shop that deals Dean recently mentioned how much I loved my Idol, and the dude scoffed at me, as though I'd suggested a yugo could take a vette off the line. It was pretty offensive, and, truth be told, dude was just ignorant.

I just took my Idol to a very highly regarded tech to remove the VCC and replace the pots with high end push pulls and tone pots, redress the frets, do a full set up. Now this guy routinely works on the guitars of well established superstars, axes that could sell for tens of thousands of dollars. He called me to tell me it was ready, and said he couldn't believe what a nice guitar it was. Said he never would have expected a korean made Washburn could be so high quality.

Funny thing, anyone who actually takes the time play one seems to draw the same conclusion. Reading this thread is simply further evidence. Cool.

so..Dimebolyaz, while I can't address the dimes specifically, all evidence suggests you can't go wrong with the Washburn. Also, I see you've got a Cube 30X...how do you like that thing? I've got one also, and like the Washburn...it's a well kept secret. An affordable beast, IMHO.[}:)]

cheers!

 I agree many of the cork sniffer folks turn up a nose to my Washburns---. That is untill they actually pick one of my USA's and play them. Then they always freak out with THIS is a WASHBURN WOW!

Firstly..I am definitely nbot a Dean hater or a hater of any kind but I have to say that I think Dean guitars are poor quality compared to Washburn or many other manufacturers.  
Dean are a company that values $ above all else and will stop at nothing to achieve that, which is fine (thats wehat capitalism is) , but to me their quality suffers and above all else their integrity is - to coin a phrase from ZW - SHOT TO HELL.[8D]
I wouldnt trust a dean guitar as far as i could throw it, although im sure there are many great Dean guitars circulating I just dont trust the company as a whole[:(]

That being said, I wouldnt turn my nose up at a dean guitar but I can say that I would ALWAYS pick a washburn over a Dean, any day of any week of any year.[8]

Hey you guys, I just registered to ask you this. There is a guy who lives near me who is selling a Funky Munky Washburn Rebel 333. It is basically in mint condition. But is it really worth $1000 american dollars? Or should I get a Dean Dixie Rebel ML?

My family:
ESP/LTD Kirk Hammett 202
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Epiphone SG Standard
Dean Dimeblade
Fender Hard Rock Cafe acoustic
35 year old Jason acoustic (unknown model)
(soon to be) Washburn Rebel 333 or a Dean Dixie Rebel

Well it depends on what condition it is in, and what upgrades if any have been done to it. They were only made for a brief time for Funky Munky, once they were gone, they were gone. The person probably didnt pay $1000, for it but there again, they dont make them anymore and just for instance if you will, there are Gibson Les Pauls on ebay for $100,000 plus, and thats based on Rariety and age, so who knows what that guitar will be worth years from now. If its near you, go check it out and play it, you might be stealing it for a grand.

I just picked up a Funky Munky 333 Washburn Dime White Bolt which is supposedly mahogany body and maple/rosewood neck.

If weighs in at only about 7 to 8 lbs where my cheaper china Sno-Camo we333sc weighs about 2 lbs more.

Does anyone know what the body wood of the we333sc is supposedly made of?

I expected the funky munky to be heavier

I have one of these Rebel333s and for the money, it's amazing! I could pay 3 times as much as I did and still it might be cheap, it's just that good, atleast in my hands that is.

From what I have heard, FM are no longer actually Washburn suppliers and therefore buying directly from them most likely isn't happening. Also, I'm not sure whether $500 would get a brand new rebel (although I don't really know the price of guits on the american market.) Your best bet is to post up a thread stating what you're looking for and waiting to hear back. We have a few guys here who are EXTRMELY knowledgeable when it comes to these guits and there are regular sales of them here. Other than that, keep an eye on the eBay listings and good luck to ya man!

If you find a Rebel for 500.00, there will be a line wanting it.  LOL.   Tom.  :)
