Metal meltdown: Slayer's Kerry King has officially joined Dean Guitars' artist roster to help create and market a brand new signature model for the company.
King, who until recently was a prominent B.C. Rich signature artist for many years, celebrated the partnership in a statement on Dean's website, saying "I'm super stoked to be part of the Dean Guitars family. This has been an insane long time coming! Together we're going to create some amazing guitars that Dean, Slayer, and Kerry King fans will be as excited as I am to play them. It's gonna be a wild ride for years to come!".
In addition to creating a brand new, never-seen-before signature guitar set to be announced in the near future, Dean Guitars are celebrating the partnership by releasing a limited run of 50 handcrafted models signed by the Slayer axe man. Slayer may be done, but Kerry King will live on - forever.
