    Nah, just go with "worlock", like the Skinny Puppy song. You don't even have to learn how to saw a new word.

    A King V with a hockeystick headstock could be nice!

    Not for Gibson prices, quality, and QC.

    Just want to be sure we’re not being too subtle. Can never be too on the nose in regards to Gibson.

    I really hope Dave doesn't go to Gibson. Then again, the internet will clown on them for not being very authentic by basically producing what amounts to little more than a King V from their competitor.

    FMIC would have a field day with that headstock, I don't think for a moment this is a Gibson, where's that picture from ?

    Fwiw I don't think it's a Gibson either, but that headstock does look pretty close to what they do on an explorer so if it really was a Gibson I don't see what FMIC could do against it.

    I was surprised that they were no ne w Mustaine models/graphics for 2019, as dean is known to have always 10 new models ready for dime or him every year, but he was still playing them so...
    I wouldnt get the point for him
    to go to gibson and have like a 3k guitar without intermediate prices like jackson or dean could provide ( usa/indo/china ), to sell to mortals like us and going the epiphone route isnt his style so that’s ....weird
    And that headstock is more jacksonish than gibson bit strangish nevertheless. ;)

    That looks like a Kramer headstock.

    I think Mustaine and Gibson are neighbors down in Tennessee.

    That's a kramer headstock. Dave mustiane going to kramer: a move that would make perfect sense in the 80's be laughed at in the 90's and be equally baffling in the 2000s as it is in almost 2020. Checks out, sounds like Dave, making a baffling decision to spite FMIC for buying Jackson instead of him by going to a brand owned by Gibson instead of making the logical jump back to Jackson.
