Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has a handful of new Kramer models and they’re… well, they’ve flying V models like every other guitar from Mustaine. But hey, they’re pointy! The Dave Mustaine Collection is available in Ebony, Silver Metallic, and a limited edition “Rust In Peace” in Alien Tech Green here for $1,299 each.
“While on our recent ‘Crash, the World Tour,’ when I’d take the stage for our first number, ‘Hangar 18’, my adrenaline is racing. I’m not nervous, I’m pumped!” said Mustaine.
“I get handed my guitar each night by my guitar tech and I head out onto the stage to do my job. Imagine my surprise when I was a few songs into our set and I realized I was not given my Gibson signature Flying V, I was given my new Kramer signature Flying V. The playing ability of this guitar is superb and if I didn’t look at the legs on this beauty, I would never have known the difference. An excellent guitar from an excellent company; this is a serious metal weapon.”
The Vanguard is equipped with a symmetrical mahogany Vanguard body, a 25.5″ scale mahogany neck with a medium C Dave Mustaine custom profile, an ebony fretboard with 24 jumbo frets, black chrome hardware, and Dave Mustaine’s signature Seymour Duncan Thrash Factor pickup set.
