As a premier player in the world of heavy metal for decades on end, Dave Mustaine requires little introduction for the headbangers of the world. The legendary MEGADETH guitarist and songwriter joins Gibson today to create an instrument of unprecedented heavy metal caliber. Gibson's Dave Mustaine Flying V EXP is a beacon for players seeking audience at the altar of MEGADETH.
The Gibson Dave Mustaine Flying V EXP embodies the heavy metal spirit to an absolute tee. Aesthetically outstanding and audibly impeccable, Mustaine's Artist model captures the heavy metal essence of both classic and modern sensibilities. Starting with a centerpiece of design, this Artist model features the unmistakable Flying V body shape. This body is constructed of mahogany and paired with a mahogany neck, giving any player the true heavy metal treatment when slung over the shoulder. The Flying V's iconic shape is complemented by an Explorer-shaped headstock.
This Artist model wouldn't be true to Mustaine without streamlined playability – perfect for thrashing and shredding. An ebony fingerboard with a compound radius and medium jumbo frets keep fretting fast and soloing slick. Designed for MEGADETH's breakneck speeds, this Flying V keeps up. Tonally, this Mustaine specialty comes alive with a set of custom Seymour Duncan humbuckers. The Dave Mustaine Signature Seymour Duncan Thrash Factor humbucking pickup harnesses the power needed to play with the intensity of its namesake creator. Put two of these custom humbuckers together and it's heavy metal poetry.
A Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge is incorporated into this equation with a Stop Bar tailpiece and Grover Mini Rotomatic tuners for solid and reliable intonation. Extra appointments to this Flying V include Mother of Pearl "Teeth" fingerboard fret inlays and black chrome hardware.
With decades of experience fronting one of the most influential metal bands of all time, Mustaine's stage-ready wisdom and ear for heavy tonality shines through with this Gibson Artist model. Designed to rock and thrash with MEGADETH's patented energy and intensity, a heavy metal instrument of this caliber won't be found many other places. This one-of-a-kind metal artifact celebrates a thrash metal track record that is hard to match.
