Dean Dave Mustaine VMNT Rust In Peace V

The Dean Dave Mustaine VMNT Rust In Peace is a remarkable electric guitar that embodies the aggressive style and precision of its namesake, Dave Mustaine, the legendary Megadeth frontman. This guitar is not just an instrument but a tribute to one of the most iconic albums in the thrash metal genre, “Rust In Peace.”

Crafted with a mahogany body and top, this guitar offers a warm, resonant tone that’s perfect for heavy riffing and scorching solos. The set-in mahogany neck, coupled with a 24-fret ebony fretboard, provides a smooth, fast playing experience, ideal for the technical demands of metal music. The guitar’s unique V-shape is not only visually striking but also offers excellent access to the upper frets, essential for lead guitarists.

Equipped with Dave Mustaine’s signature Seymour Duncan LiveWire pickups, the VMNT delivers aggressive, high-output tones with exceptional clarity and punch. These active pickups are designed to capture the full dynamics of your playing, from nuanced clean passages to all-out distortion.

The guitar’s aesthetics are as striking as its sound, featuring a graphic that pays homage to the “Rust In Peace” album artwork, instantly recognizable to fans of the genre. Its black hardware, including Grover tuners and a Tune-O-Matic bridge, ensures reliable tuning stability and intonation.  This guitar is in fair condition with some heavy playwear, which consists of some small chunks of wood missing from most of the tips including the headstock, some heavy oxidation to the pickup covers, and scratches and dings throughout the body. (See photos for more detail.) All that said, the guitar is setup to play very well and and exhibits no noticeable fretwear.  It does not come with a hardshell case or gig bag.
