In the new video below, Dave Mustaine joins Sweetwater‘s Nick Bowcott to talk about Megadeth‘s new record and Dave's relationship with Gibson Guitars.
A message states: "Dave covers a long and varied history of Mustaine signature models that’s now culminated in Dave‘s appointment as a Gibson Brand Ambassador and his signature Gibson Flying V. This Flying V features a neck modified for speed and metal, and the guitar leaps seamlessly from lead to rhythm playing without missing a beat, just like Dave! Nick and Dave also cover songwriting, bandmates, and Dave‘s brutal new Gibson signature acoustic guitar, a rare 24-fret behemoth acoustic. Check it out!"
In late June, Gibson introduced the limited Dave Mustaine Flying V EXP Rust In Peace. Named after the album that set a new standard for heavy metal, this guitar will rock you out of this world with its Alien Tech Green finish.
The Gibson Dave Mustaine Flying V™ EXP Rust In Peace Artist model delivers the powerful, heavy sound and exceptional playing performance that Dave demands. The 25.5” scale mahogany neck has an ebony fretboard with a compound fretboard radius, 24 medium jumbo frets, two-tone green/pearloid Rust In Peace diamond inlays, an Explorer™-style headstock with Grover® Mini Rotomatic® tuners with Kidney buttons, a Graph Tech® nut, and Dave Mustaine's signature on the truss rod cover.
The mahogany Flying V-style body is equipped with a Tune-O-Matic™ bridge, a Stop Bar tailpiece, and a Dave Mustaine signature Seymour Duncan® Thrash Factor pickup set. The Alien Tech Green nitrocellulose lacquer finish is complemented by black chrome hardware. A Rust In Peace custom hardshell case is also included, with a Dave Mustaine Signature Richter Strap inside the case. Grab one now before they fly off the shelf.
