Damn...I'm a huge mustaine fan but each time i wanna click for preorder, i'm like "well it's just a silver V" "You already have a modified robot V which looks kinda like it...."....
The natural looks even more basic. It lacks of something, I don't know. And Ebony at Gibson is something unsure on the long term....
Jackson, it's your moment to release a mahogany and a silver KV. Like....really ;)

Which one of the nine and a half inlays doesn't look good to you? :confused::D

Not sure if this was posted already but... Moderators, delete if needed.

If anyone of you here are into the bidding on auctioned guitars thing, Dave is auctioning 5 of his Gibson guitars. I thought they were talking about his old Jackson, ESP, and Dean guitars but they are Gibsons.

https://auction.megadeth.com/?omnisendContactID=60b7a15f1215fa09e685497a&utm_campaign=campaign:+OWN+A+PIECE+OF+GUITAR+HISTORY!+(61c376a1ef29d700180652c0)&utm_medium=email&utm_source=omnisend

Not played or owned by Dave, but he looked at them the other day in Nashville. 20 grand! ;)

Dave showing once again that he's a shrewd businessman. He's going to make at least 30k from those things while doing almost nothing for it.
It's been a long day so my eyes could be deceiving me, but I'm pretty sure "package 1" is currently at over $700k...

Either an error or Gibson is buying that guitar from themselves as a part of the "mind blowing strategy" to make headlines.

That WAS a crazy good gear breakdown. I’m a little shocked at the missing inlay piece, the tool gouges on the binding, and especially the grain showing through on the body. Especially that last one - it’s such a big thing, maybe it was intentional, and they’ll all have it that way? If not, that’s crazy it made it out like that.

The grain showing through is 100% intentional. It's a very marmite design choice.
