Gibson Dave Mustaine Flying V EXP, Antique Natural

This sleek signature model from the Megadeth legend delivers truly slick playability, aggressive looks and a powerful high-octane tone - from incendiary riffs to elegant solos, this solid body electric guitar can pull it off with ease.

Metal Icon

The influence of Dave Mustaine and Megadeth on metal music is not to be understated. Since forming in 1983, the Grammy-winning band has gone on to release landmark albums in the Thrash Metal genre, including the platinum-selling Rust In Peace and Countdown to Extinction. As part of the “Big Four” of Thrash music, there’s no doubt that Megadeth is one of the most revered and beloved Metal bands of all time.

Sophisticated Aggression

The architect behind Megadeth is their principal guitarist, songwriter, vocalist and founder Dave Mustaine. His ability to craft powerful, captivating riffs is one of the many reasons why Megadeth have continued to thrive for over 35 years. This signature Flying V EXP is a collaboration between Mustaine and Gibson, boasting an impressive spec that’s tailored to the Thrash pioneer’s full-throttle playing style. With its distinctive Flying V shape, Explorer-style headstock, mother-of-pearl teeth inlays and black chrome hardware, the Dave Mustaine Flying V EXP has a look to match its ferocious sound.

Classic Construction

Fueling the Dave Mustaine signature Flying V EXP’s rich, full-bodied sound is its solid Mahogany body and neck. Mahogany is a staple Gibson tonewood that’s renowned for its smooth highs, punchy mid-range and ample sustain. The Mahogany neck is capped with a glass-like Ebony fretboard, which enhances note definition and feels exceptional under the fingers. Topping the neck are 24 Jumbo frets. As well as making expressive string bends and vibrato a breeze, these larger frets also improve sustain. Intricate “spider chord” riffs and wild leads are catered for by the SlimTaper neck profile and compound radius fingerboard, which gradually flattens out as you climb the neck for effortless soloing.

Seymour Duncan Pickups

Gibson have equipped the Dave Mustaine Flying V with the Megadeth mastermind’s signature Thrash Factor humbucker set. This high-output, passive set is based on the pickups in the guitar Mustaine favoured during the recording of Rust In Peace. The bridge pickup is a recreation of Mustaine’s favourite Seymour Duncan JB. Compared to an off-the-shelf model, this one features a tighter low-end, slightly scooped mids and more aggressive highs. The neck is Mustaine’s favourite neck pickup, the '59 Model SH-1, which offers a warm tone that’s inspired by the legendary Seth Lover P.A.F.

Quality Hardware

Dave Mustaine and Megadeth continue to actively tour around the world. That’s why Gibson have made sure this Mustaine signature guitar can withstand the rigours of the road with ease. The Grover Mini Rotomatic tuners and Nashville Tune-o-Matic bridge ensure rock-solid tuning stability whilst the high-quality Graph Tech nut eliminates string slippage. Thanks to all these premium hardware appointments, you can perform with complete confidence on stage and in the studio. This guitar also comes with a hardshell case to keep it safe and sound between shows.

Whether you’re a diehard Megadeth fan, an all-out metalhead or a heavy rocker, we’re sure you’ll love the powerful tone, laser-fast playability and sleek look of this signature Gibson Flying V EXP.
