Got up this morning with this:
Edit: I'm curious though what guitar he would be getting. A vintage Gibson V, a modernised Gibson V or the Kramer V? My guess, the Kramer Nite-V
Finally. Only a few more days of waiting. To bad the Gibson doesn't have the 70s Flying V headstock or a reverse hockeystick headstock, that would have been cool. But maybe the regular hockeystick headstock on a V will grow on me, time will tell.
Maybe Gibson will reveal the Richie Faulkner V at the same time as well.
As far as hobbies go, guitar isn't a bad one at all. They're not that expensive. You can play at home and it's not super inconvenient. They don't lose massive amounts of value when you own them.
Pretty sure hes getting both the roundhorn Gibson V AND a Kramer based on the King V.
Gibson, Kramer and Epiphone?
Looks like they used Megadeth font for the Kramer logo

A feeble guitarist who is a shadow of his former self goes to a feeble guitar-maker that is a shadow of its former self.
I can see it.
I'll wait til the 23rd but I'm just a bit disappointed to see artist releasing stuff that are amost unaffordable for fans.
Like the Jones LP sig.7000 euros? mmm ok...but no...The V will be in same waters for sure....
That's probably why they're doing multiple brands/tiers. You'll have a $$$$ Gibson Custom series for the guys that want his exact guitar, a mid-priced Epiphone/Kramer that'll have 90% the same specs for a fraction of the price.
That's how most First Tier artist signature guitars work. From Meshuggah and the M8M vs. M80M, to Joe Satriani and the JS1 vs JS100, to Misha Mansoor's USA vs. Pro, and Gary Holt's ESP vs. LTD.
That way everyone is happy, the guys who can spend the cash for the bragging rights, and the regular players and weekend warriors.
Not sure how anyone can twist that into a negative.
You moderate a guitar forum....you of all people should know how guitarists can twist something guitar related into a negative
Gotta fight the good fight. And drink. A lot.
Very disappointed, but entirely unsurprised.
Dave's probably after his retirement money at this point, and that's coming from a big Megadeth/Mustaine fan.
I'm sure if he went with Jackson they'd be $3.99 with case.
Heck, his Deans were $4k depending on model. If you ordered an ESP DV8 (not LTD) the pricing was similar.
Not sure why Gibson is seen as a cash grab.
Maybe I'm missing that part; does signature guitar pricing have anything to do with the money he makes from his endorsement? I kinda see this as independent from his endorsement contract. He's boasted several times that his favorite guitars had always been his Jacksons, yet he has categorically refused to go back there, surely because other manufacturers such as Dean and now Gibson have offered him way more money to put his name on their product?
You misread a harmless joke as some kind of attack but go on, tell me more about how Mustaine and Gibson are in their prime if you like
Hit and run low hanging fruit. Hilarious.
His history with Jackson is pretty complicated, but doubt Dean is even capable of offering more money than FMIC.
Oh I know, I agree, but it's hard to even think he went with Gibson for anything other than being offered a nice big check. There is nothing that ever linked the names Dave Mustaine and Gibson together. Even Dean made more sense in my opinion.
The same could be said of ESP, and make no mistake, all endorsements are about the hustle.
I wouldn't say he has zero linkage with Gibson, he's had both Jackson and Dean copy (or close to it) Gibson designs for decades.
Perhaps, he finally wanted to play authentic®.
