Dimebag Darrell Abbott Wins Guitar Competition @ 14 – Dean ML
full in bloom:
“It was a very big night at the Agora as Buddy, Q102, and Arnold & Morgan presented the second consecutive “Real Guitar” competition. The winner this time was Darrell Abbott of Arlington. Darrell, age 14, was the favorite of the crowd and the judges as he walked off with first prize, a stunning, bright red, Dean ML guitar.”
Dean Zelinsky, founder of Dean Guitars, was one of the judges. Abbott’s mother accompanied him to the club because he was not old enough to enter on his own.
