This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own the personal tour-used custom V guitar of legendary platinum selling, Grammy winning guitar god: Dave Mustaine of Megadeth! As an original member of Metallica and the founding frontman of Megadeth, Dave Mustaine is Heavy Metal royalty of legendary proportions. His songs can be heard in Hollywood blockbuster movies starring Arnold Schwarzenegger to the biggest video games of all time like Grand Theft Auto and Guitar Hero! This guitar has the traditional Jackson King V body lines and a stunning Terinator "Vic Chick" custom graphic...this is a killer display piece that is at the same time capable of making Grammy award winning music! The case is covered with tour markings and is evident this was used in regular rotation with Dave...marked by his tech as guitar #1 on the back of the headstock! I have loved owning this guitar, but the sale would help raise funds for our new studio that has been forced closed due to the global pandemic.

Rolling Stone magazine interviewed Dave Mustaine about our studio buying his guitars, and his response was that he thought it was great. He offered to sign his guitars in person, so I took him up on it! Our studio brought his entire collection to Wembley Arena in London on January 31st 2020 for their show with Five Finger Death Punch. Dave signed every guitar including this one. We have amazing video footage of the entire event that the buyer will get to see.

This is the only Dave Mustaine graphic guitar of its kind offered to the general public offered from his personal collection! It comes with its Dean case and tour markings as seen! For the price of a Rolex watch, you can own something significantly more amazing. This is functional art at its finest.

This rare Megadeth personally owned guitar from Dave Mustaine is part of our premium instrument collection at Essex Recording Studios. Follow us on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram!

International buyers welcome! We ship to any country in the world! This guitar will be packed and shipped with love, care and respect! It is in excellent condition considering it is a tour guitar! Only minor marks from playing live shows around the world...just watch the video for full condition! Flight case in foreground not included. You are welcome to collect the guitar in person if you are local to our studio in Southend, England at post code SS1 1AB directly opposite Southend Central train station.

YOUR PURCHASE HELPS MUSICIANS and supports our studio! Buying from us directly helps support unsigned musicians and bands that struggle to produce professional music without the help that is no longer provided to up-and-coming rock bands by major record labels these days. Thank you for your support!
