NAMM 2021 isn't taking place in the physical realm this year, but you'll find all the hottest January gear launches in our guide to the biggest guitar, amp and pedal releases of 2021 so far.

Dean Guitars has officially relaunched the Dime Razorback Rust, paying tribute to late Pantera guitar legend Dimebag Darrell. 

The guitar, which was originally introduced as a limited US custom run, now joins other signature Dimebag guitars in Dean's Artist Series.

Finished with a unique rust-themed graphic design, the Dime Razorback Rust features a bevelled mahogany body, set three-piece mahogany neck and a 22-fret, 14"-radius rosewood fingerboard with razorblade inlay on the 12th fret.
