From Wikipedia:

Abbott's first guitar was a Les Paul copy by Hondo, and he began playing Dean Guitars in the early 1980s. His father bought him a cherry sunburst 1979 Dean ML in 1981 and later that day he won a burgundy ML in a guitar competition. He later sold this guitar to purchase a car. The guitar was subsequently heavily customized; the neck was re-shaped, a lightning bolt paint job was applied and a Floyd Rose tremolo system was installed. This guitar was later returned to Abbott as a gift, and became known as the "Dean From Hell", which he used from 1988 until 1994. He also played a sunburst ML customized to his own specs on Vulgar Display of Power and Far Beyond Driven. When Dean temporarily closed down, he collaborated with Washburn to recreate the ML body style. When the Washburn contract ended, he made arrangements to be the sole endorsee of the re-opened Dean. Abbott's death came shortly before the Dean contract was set to begin. Some of Abbott's other guitars included a blue Hamer ML, a white 1984 Dean ML and a red ML for the "This Love" video, and two Jackson Rhoads guitars.

The Dean From Hell guitar had Bill Lawrence pickups. The Seymour Duncan guitar pickup company made a signature pickup called "the Dimebucker", modeled after the Bill Lawrence original L-500XL pickups.
After Dean guitars' demise in 1994 he signed with Washburn, going back to Dean again in 2004.
He was buried with a Charvel guitar which was owned by Eddie Van Halen.
Abbott co-designed a guitar with Dean just months before his death. Called the Razorback, it was a modified version of the ML. It was more pointed and had extra barbs on the wings. The design spawned variations, such as a 24-fret version, different paint jobs including a flamed maple top with natural finish and EMG pickups. He also helped design of the V-shaped version, the Razorback V (lacking the neck-pointing front wing).
