    Always loved the megaman-esque lead in she wolf.

    man I always thought that as well! I tried to emulate that tone for years.

    One other comment, I doubt he'd release a signature guitar without throwing in his signature livewire pickups. It's kinda par for the course these days with the big time endorsers.

    Even if it started off as Mustaine's solo project, I like to think of it as the spiritual successor to the Peace Sells lineup. Chris Poland on leads, and since Gar was jazz/fusion drummer, Vinnie Coliauta was more than worthy to be behind the kit (hell, he's pretty much overqualified but it's awesome hearing Vinnie play thrash). Had it had been Junior on bass, and more stronger songwriting, I'd say it'd be a stone throw from a full reincarnation.

    Fun story. I learned how to palm mute thrashy rhythm stuff by playing the beginning of Blackmail the Universe over and over and over again. It's kind of a perfect set of riffs for that. That's a solid album. Some real nostalgia there.

    That would be cool. Buy my signature guitar but if you want my signature pickups you'll have to buy them separately and swap them out.

    Maybe Dave Mustaines great tone in the 2000s came from his Line 6 signature amp. I mean, together with his ESP Axxion this must be his most sought-after gear.

    Agree about the Rude Awakening tone, love it. I would be quick to blame the Livewires but the tone on That One Night is also still alright I think. The United Abominations tour tone (Line 6) was not a classic Marshall, but I wasn't put off just yet IIRC. Where did it go wrong?

    From what I can tell, his sounds from the Rude Awakening era was either the Marshall JMP1 or Rocktroj Prophesy v1 running into a Marshall 100/100 and Marshall cabs. The L6 heads didn't come into play until 2006 or 2007.

    Also agreed about System has Failed. It's a great album just for Chris Polands lead work alone. Sucks they couldn't come to an agreement.

    He started using the Rocktron Prophesy when Marty was still in the band, so most likely his rig hasn't changed much between 1999 and 2005

    Huh, didn't realize that. I thought he was still using the JMP in 1999/2000 because his tone sounded so significantly different in 2001.

    To be fair, Megadeth's live tones were never something to write home about. They sounded fine, but it was the music and energy that made the show.

    ... Live shows tones are rarely something good to write about... even from bandas like Megadeth, Metallica or Dream Theater. It's another story when we speak about Steve Vai and the likes.

    So, does that mean that he’ll announce shortly that he is leaving Seymour Duncan for Fishman?

    You think so? I can think of a ton of bands with great live tone, some even better than their recorded sound. Dying Fetus comes to mind. Even Wintersun despite all of their pompous behavior has great live tone.
