Dave Mustaine, one of the vital most iconic and influential metallic guitar gamers, has introduced that he’s now a part of Gibson guitars. The information is perhaps a shocker to some, however again in fall of 2019 Mustaine hinted that he was leaving Dean guitars — who he’s lengthy been related to — after selling off quite a lot of his private gear and Dean signature fashions.
Yesterday Dave Mustaine posted a number of teasers on social media indicating he was partnering with Gibson, and that his new signature would span throughout three Gibson manufacturers. In the present day it was revealed that these three manufacturers are Kramer, Gibson Customized, and Epiphone.
Mustaine tweeted the complete announcement at this time, stating “That is certainly one of my proudest moments and I’m so excited, and thrilled to be a Model Ambassador for Gibson.”
It’s exceptional to see Dave now aside of one of many largest guitar firms on the planet, particularly after years of being with Dean guitars, who’ve lengthy been recognized for housing metallic guitar icons like Dimebag Darrell, Michael Schenker, and lately Kerry King. In reality each guitar firms have acquired some notable rock and metallic musicians over the past yr. In 2019, Dean introduced they’d acquired the like minded thrash legend Kerry King (Slayer), who was infamous for his affiliation with B.C. Wealthy guitars. And again a number of months in the past, Gibson had introduced they’d be releasing an official signature guitar mannequin with Software’s Adam Jones.
The timing of Dave’s new partnership with Gibson can also be fairly fascinating. Megadeth’s new album is sizzling within the oven and anticipated to come back out later in 2021 or probably even 2022, in response to recent rumors. However each time it’s launched, it’ll mark the primary Megadeth album beneath these new Dave Mustaine signature Gibson fashions, so it’ll be compelling to see how/if the brand new album propels gross sales of the brand new guitars. As well as, possibly Megadeth will supply the primary teaser of latest music by way of a Gibson promotion, much like how Software’s Adam Jones released an instrumental track (which featured the opposite instrumentalists of Software) with the announcement of his Gibson signature mannequin.
Nevertheless, an enormous concern with Mustaine’s new Gibson fashions is perhaps the pricing. Gibson guitars often run fairly excessive in pricing particularly in comparison with Mustaine’s earlier Dean fashions, which run fairly flexibly from $400 to $2000. This was one thing seen with Adam Jones’ Gibson mannequin which boasts a $9,999 and $5,999 pricing level between his two fashions. However each time Mustaine’s new Gibson guitars are showcased hopefully the pricing and product line is analogous in selection to his earlier signature guitars.
