    Glad to see him up and moving again. If I can get the time off work I'm going to try to catch them when they come through the west coast. Still haven't seen Dave on stage yet.

    I was thinking the same thing. They have a fire about them that I havent seen in a long time.

    yeah the footage I saw sure brought a smile to my face. But I was really hoping they’d mix up the set list with something new. Buttttt you know that will never happen.

    I’m actually surprised to see him with an Evertune model, given his previous statements about his old Kahler bridge on his Jacksons being “tone sucking.”

    It is a 22 fret, so it’s likely Dave is just testing the waters with something new.

    Plenty of TOM alternatives, though. It will be interesting to see how the price points stack up with quality.

    I love the parallel inlays on that Custom.

    If they come out with a standard production model first, I really hope these are in line with the new Iommi prices. But I can see how being 24 frets and probably 25.5" could raise costs a little.

    Dave’s solos are increasingly unintelligible when played live.

    Sounded tight AF besides that though!

    He's been like that for awhile. I don't think he every really got back to 100% after the nerve issues in his fretting hand all those years ago.

    His rhythm playing is tight as fuck still.

    How to have sharktooth inlays without being sued by FMIC, part 17. I like it tbh, being a V guy, but I'm conflicted: I already haver a natural Gibson V, but this one has good jack placement.

    Knowing how the world is *really* going right now, probably a limited run of 400 in 2022 that will get sold to scalpers in seconds and on ebay/reverb for four times the price 5 mn afterwards.

    I have a feeling they will be a lot more than the Iommi model. The SG is always the least expensive of the standard line and a production signature V would still require more labor.

    Nah, he was just kidding.

    FMIC only owns the names, headstock shapes, and some body outlines, as far as guitars are concerned.

    That natty one is looking pretty good, I'd dig having a classic V like that in my lineup

    I've seen Megadeth 7 times live I think, but this is the tightest I've seen them in a long time. Also, I didn't think I would like the natural finish (they never look good on the website). But damn, seeing it on that video... i like it the most. Can't wait for the shops to get any of the DM Vs in. Would love to try one.

    Out of all of them he played that night, it's by far my favourite.

    Gibson is just putting out collectors items this year I guess. Now Jerry Cantrell’s “Wino” which is like $8000. After it’s release I’m sure it’ll be $20,000 on the secondary
