(BLABBERMOUTH) Instrument designer Buddy Webster, who goes by the name Buddy Blaze, has filed a lawsuit against Armadillo Enterprises, the parent company of Dean Guitars, and the estate of late PANTERA guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, alleging that he he hasn't received a single penny from the Dimebag's classic "Dean From Hell" guitar, which he says he helped create.
According to the lawsuit, the "Dean From Hell" guitar was designed in the 1980s after Webster met and developed a friendship with Dimebag.
Webster is seeking for monetary damages from the unauthorized copying and distribution his work. In addition, Webster has asked the US District Court to enhance the award due to Dean's "willful" violation of his rights.
