Gibson just uploaded a video officially announcing The Dave Mustaine Collection. This new series will have instruments be spread across the Gibson, Epiphone, and Kramer brands. They include both acoustic and electric guitars, so there is a lot to look forward to for Megadeth and Mustaine fans.
Dave Mustaine Collection
You can watch the official announcement video below with Cesar Gueikian and Dave Mustaine, where they discuss Mustaine joining Gibson family of brands. In the video, you can see three guitars next to Dave. There are two V-style guitars and an acoustic. I am looking forward to hearing what else is in the pipeline from Dave, as he is an awesome player who can certainly bring a lot to this partnership.
“I feel I am finally at home with Gibson, and I am proud of what we’re building together.”- Dave Mustaine
Gibson, Epiphone & Kramer
I’m glad they are doing all three brands as Gibson, Epiphone and Kramer all have something to offer. It would also mean that there should be something for every budget, which is always a good thing. It gives more guitarists the opportunity to get their hands on something from the Dave Mustaine Collection.
“One of first albums I ever bought was Kiss Alive. On the back of that LP was the Gibson logo, followed by ‘Kiss uses Gibson Guitars because they want the best’. Period,” says Dave Mustaine. “Years later, I’m still that same fan, but now I’ve been playing, touring, writing, and performing around the world myself, and I can say that I could not agree more with that statement. As I was looking for a change in my guitars, I met with Cesar and got his perspective on the vision and direction Gibson is taking. I saw passion, respect for the instruments, a focus on quality and a company that is led by guitar players. I feel I am finally at home with Gibson and I am proud of what we’re building together. I can’t wait for the world to get their hands on the new Gibson, Epiphone, and Kramer Dave Mustaine Collection guitars. This is a dream come true for me, don’t #@!# wake me up.” – Dave Mustaine
We will report back as soon as more official news is released on these forthcoming models. For now, you can check out the video below and hear what Dave has to say about the new collaboration. They mention the three prototypes you can see next to Dave in the video and talk about the bracing of the acoustic model, but no real details have yet been officially revealed. We’ll keep you posted.
Rust In Peace
Some photos of three of the Gibson models and one of the Kramer models were revealed late last night. And it looks like we have a lot ofd Flying V models to look forward too, along with a new Gibson acoustic 24 fret model, their first model with this many frets. Though the Epiphone models have yet to be revealed, they have stated that all these new Gibson and Kramer models will be out later in 2021, but no details on their site yet.
So there is a new Kramer Dave Mustaine Flying V Vanguard in Natural, along with two Gibson models, the Gibson Dave Mustaine Flying V EXP in Metallic Silver and the snazzy looking Dave Mustaine Flying V 30th Anniversary ‘Rust in Peace’ Edition, plus that new 24 fret acoustic model the Dave Mustaine CF-100 Blood Burst. It is going to be a great year for any Megadeth and Mustaine fans, plus if like Flying Vs you also have three new models to check out as well.
