I'm pretty sure finding those Jacksons is a pain today, though.
I just looked them up on eBay out of curiosity - there's a black Pro for sale in the US, with a Kahler etc... £1600
There is somebody selling his LTD DV8. Maybe you're interested.
I used to use one of the DV8 guitars from LTD and I have to say it was pretty great, if you can find one used, do it. I really like the SD JB/Jazz combo over his livewire set. I had the limited cherry sunburst like one. My only complaint was the the finish to the guitar was pretty soft and dented/scratched very easily.
I sold mine after he started getting a little out there...
The old Jackson KV Pros are a little strange, with the Kahler fixed bridge and extremely small frets. But that's the way Dave wanted them back then. The U.S. versions were identical, other than country of manufacture. It was weird how you could get used KV Pros for $500 for many years, and then overnight they became sought-after and jumped to $1,000+. They're not worth that kind of money, when you can get a used USA-made KV for the same or less.
By the way, in that picture, only the silver guitar is a Mustaine sig model. The black one is just a regular KV Std. from that era.
Something about Mustaine with an Explorer shape that makes me feel weird inside
I have the Dean VMNT Angel of Death (got it in 2009) and it's made in Korea. Great guitar, it really is. I tried the one of the ESP Mustaine's before I made my decision and I absolutely despised it. Maybe it was just the one I played, or maybe it's just because I'm not really a fan of ESP guitars for some reason, but the Dean (at least the Korea ones) is solid.
Also here is another mustaine signature on the forum http://www.sevenstring.org/forum/guitars-sale-trade-wanted/227938-dean-zero-dave-mustaine-sig.html
Someone actually put EMGs in a Mustaine guitar.
I have the vmnt made by unsung korea. Awesome guitar, almost custom shop quality.
They shifted the production of these to indonesia now but unfortunately kept the price tag the same.
Always wanted one of these
I used to work with both models back at GC, Have to say I always like the LTD's more, but to each his own
I really wonder what was the point of the axxion...He never played wit th it, it's...well ...weird, and he didn't bring the shape to Dean , and ESP got rid of it in the catalogue...strange..
Ive owned two of the VMNTs now (Vmntx and a Vmnt)
I absolutely hated the VMNT, action was mediocre at best and the fret work was subpar.
was glad to get rid of that hunk of shit. Mine was most likely a lemon, but Dean doesn't exactly have an amazing track record so I would definitely advise you to look into the ESPs
Sacrilege! Livewires are freaking amazing!
I had the extreme privilege of playing my friend's USA limited VMNT (trans black flame...amazing). The action was soooo smooth I actually thought I was playing a short scale guitar before I looked up the specs.
From what I've seen, Dean's Korean models are up to par with PRSes SE line as well as Schecters.
I didn't dig the Indonesian Angel of Deth II. Played one at GC a while back and while it balanced well, it felt flimsy, like plywood. The Dean stock pickups didn't help either. Jazz/JB/Livewire set in a Mustaine or bust.
Can't speak of the ESPs. Still think he should be playing a Jackson King V.
