All DIMEBAG/WASHBURN Merchandise Licensed Material Acquired By BOOGIESTREET

December 16, 2004

Eric McKenna of BoogieStreet has issued the following press release:

BoogieStreet WorldWide Guitars, Pittsburgh, Washburn USA's largest custom shop dealer, has acquired ALL of the remaining official Washburn Dimebag Darrell "swag." This includes shirts, fleece, jackets, hoodies, skull caps, hats, etc. Every remaining piece of Washburn Dime clothing that is in Chicago has been acquired by BoogieStreet.

This decision was made, in part, as a small way to counteract some of the rather "unattractive" marketing of Dime-related products on eBay and the Internet in general since Dime's untimely passing. This decision will provide the legion of Dimebag Darrell fans who are so inclined the option to purchase BRAND NEW Washburn and Dime clothing products. With no question of authenticity. With no question of the product's origin. In addition, fans will be purchasing directly from BoogieStreet Guitars. A six-year eBay Platinum Powerseller and more importantly, a name the fans can trust on the Internet.

As of today, Wednesday, December 15, all the merchandise is being gathered and will be arriving at B'Street in the next few days. We do not have answers right this moment on exact items, sizes, etc. You have our sincere promise that we will move very quickly to list everything so as not to delay anyone's opportunity to obtain a piece of these final Washburn and Dime clothing products.

BoogieStreet is honored to have been afforded this opportunity by U.S. Music Corporation. We appreciate the trust they have placed in us to ensure that this merchandise is professionally sold, through legitimate mediums...and most importantly, to Dime's FANS.

While we will continue to withhold our USA Washburn Dime guitars from our website and eBay listings for a few more weeks, after discussions with Washburn we have decided that with the Christmas holiday season here, it would be prudent to get this "swag" available to the fans as soon as we possibly can. We simply can not guarantee Christmas delivery. However, we will have these great items available throughout this upcoming holiday season.

Once again, we thank everyone for the continued support and again express our gratitude to everyone who is going out of their way to respect Dime, Rita, Vinnie, the Abbott family, the BLS community and all of Dimebag's legion of fans. Thank You.

(Thanks: Chad Dyer /
