A little more than eight years ago, legendary guitarist and Pantera founder "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott was tragically murdered on stage while performing with his side band Damageplan in Columbus, Ohio. Gone, but not forgotten, Dimebag continues to inspire longtime fans and aspiring musicians alike, including the customer who requested this pair of Darrell-inspired custom Nike Zoom KD IVs from Mache.
Taking inspiration from Dimebag's signature Dimebolt guitar, the "Dimebag" KD IV features a predominantly blue upper with lightning bolts striking throughout. Pantera's Cowboys From Hell logo was added to the cross-strap, while "RIP Dimebag" appears on the underside.
These are a private order from a Pantera and Dimebag fan and will not be recreated by Mache. However, you can make your own requests or stay informed on new projects by checking out machecustoms.com and following him at @MACHE275 on Twitter and Instagram.
