    Man, I hope those aren't actually it. I normally like Dave's guitars, and I know I'm going to be in the minority for this, but those up there are ugly as sin to my eyes. Really hoping he just ends up back on Jackson although I know he won't.

    Honestly it looks much closer to the KV. The VMNT has those weird bevels, while this has the King V bevels.

    But yeah, the black V is 100% a Dave Mustaine guitar. 24 frets, control layout, and it has the Thrash Factor in the bridge. You can kinda see the Thrash Factor in the Kramer as well.

    They just seem so inoffensive to have much of an opinion on.

    It's just generic pointy V and generic old school V with Explorer headstocks. Typical HH, dark boards, off the shelf hardware, etc.

    MegaDave gets the same old same old from whoever, and this fits the bill. Just slap a different headstock/logo.

    The announcement of this guitar has become a meme.
    Which is bad, because the longer it is hyped and waited, the saltier the people will be for the reveal.
    It already shows in here.

    The funny thing?
    Gibson never said anything about Mustaine. This is a bunch of youtubers, influencers, and forum guys like us speculating for months. Gibson has never said ANYTHING. :lol: Gibson and Mustaine either are prototyping shit or are having a set date to finally show stuff off.

    COVID Mania people making thirsty AF.

    "We know you saw those Vs in our videos. We're so happy you guys had so much interest for these new models, that are for Bullet For My Valentine guitarist Matt Tuck, who we welcome to our family with open arms"

    *week later*

    BC Rich signature Dave Mustaine Speed V.

    I hope it's just a proto type. I was expecting to be a bit more whelmed. The tailpiece looks god awful. The knobs are meh. Looks like the jack plate is chrome? Not using recessed straplocks.

    Needs a Kahler and some LSRs. Matching hardware and the straplocks.

    Check out the album 13, and I also personally liked Dystopia. It had a lot of catchy choruses. I’m not promising you RIP. But by and large those were really good thrash albums.


    +1 for Matt Tuck. Love that band.


    On topic: Man the upper fret access on those really isn’t that great huh? I like the Gibson/Solar design where the shoulders stop at the FB:highest fret, or how ESP does it with the lil scoopy scoop.

    Dystopia and endgame were great but super collider was crap and 13 songs songs were already recorded ar available in the past
    Lets hope the next one will be good

    meh, System Has Failed was the last interesting Megadeth album to me. The newer ones all sound identical

    I don't really agree. They sound pretty different... Albeit with different levels of decency/mediocrity.

    I also agree with you that they do have a different sound, and part of that is when Dave brings in new musicians. I also agree that there's a wide range of quality to the material.

    To me, Megadeth goes through this pattern with their releases of the last 20 years...
    Risk - Bad
    World Needs a Hero - Okay
    The System has Failed - Good
    United Abominations - Okay
    Endgame - Good
    Thirteen - Okay
    Super Colider - Bad
    Dystopia - Good

    They haven't released two really good albums in a row, but haven't released two terrible ones in a row either...everything in between is just okay.

    Pretty much have an identical take as you except I rate Thirteen as bad.

    System has failed is by far the best thing they have done since risk imo and its also super commercial. Endgame and dystopia were both solid efforts though.
