Dave Mustaine’s official collaboration with Dean guitars seems to be coming to a close, and it looks like the Megadeth frontman might be moving over to Gibson. If the rumour is true, it could be big news for 2021, and a good move for Gibson.


Dave Mustaine joins Gibson?

Last year saw Dave Mustaine sell off lots of gear, including several Dean prototype signature models that he had used over the years. Was he clearing out all these guitars so he could move on, perhaps? According to YouTuber The Trogley’s Guitar Show, it’s possible that Mustaine is about to make a jump to Gibson for his next signature model endorsement deal.

Leaked Images and Instagram Teases

Allegedly, a new Gibson employee accidentally leaked an image of a guitar that could well be the new signature model. The prototype model has also been spotted in an Instagram post by Gibson CMO Cesar Gueikian, though it is kind of blurry and in the background.

Mega Prototype

The Megadeth main man is known for favouring modern, extended and pointy V-style guitars and this 24 fret prototype would fit the bill of what he currently plays. It is still too early to know exactly what is going on, but if we hear any more information about this potential new endorsement deal, we will let you know.

What do you think? We know from Dave’s own social media post that his deal with Dean is now finished. Is Mustaine about to jump ship to Gibson? It’s possible. Especially as Gibson has been adding several new artists to its roster under its current leadership of JC and Cesar.
