Dave Mustaine celebrates Memorial Day with new signature Gibson Flying V
Megadeth main man teases his new signature Gibson Flying V on Instagram and Twitter
Dave Mustaine has shared his Memorial Day celebrations via Instagram and Twitter with Megadeth’s own craft beer. But that’s not all. The video also shows him playing his new signature Gibson Flying V model.
Mustaine Celebrates Memorial Day
If you have been following the Dave Mustaine move to Gibson, then you will be aware that the Megadeth frontman has a series of new signature guitars coming in 2021. These will include models from Gibson, Epiphone and Kramer, with many a Megadeth fan eagerly awaiting for these guitars to drop!
This weekend, as America celebrated Memorial Day, Mustaine shared a video via Twitter and Instagram talking about the Megadeth craft beer. But you can also see him playing his new Gibson Signature Model Flying V, in a sweet all black finish.
We’re guessing this means the new models will be officially released very soon (my money is on a Summer NAMM release). Until then, we can only speculate what the specs for these highly-anticipated new signature guitars will be. You get a brief listen in the Twitter post, with Dave playing through a small Marshall setup. The black, 24 fret Flying V-style instrument is definitely a Gibson model, as you can see the logo clearly on the headstock.
Hopefully all the juicy details on this new range, including specifications and pricing across all three brands, will be revealed by the end of Summer NAMM. With Gibson, Kramer and Epiphone models on the horizon, 2021 could be a huge year for Megadeth fans wanting a Mustaine signature model.

I’m more interested in the Marshall cabinets in the background. Interesting grills. New model? Restyle?
His old DM sig cabs that have been discontinued for awhile now.
Will there be any other body style models like the Les Paul or SG?
So far there is 3 different Flying Vs and 2 acoustics. I would bet there will be an Explorer down the road. But these are “Signature” guitars and Dave never played Les Pauls or SGs so I wouldn’t hold my breath on Gibson making any.
I just want a MegaBeer!
