Rig Rundown - Megadeth's Dave Mustaine and Chris Broderick

December 23, 2009
PG's Jordan Wagner is On Location in Davenport, IA, on 12/07/09 where he catches up with Megadeth's guitarists Dave Mustaine and Chris Broderick. In this video segment, both Dave and Chris walk us through their thrash metal setups.

As we all know, Mr. Mustaine uses signature Dean Guitars (with 6-on-a-side) and Marshall power amps and cabs. To keep things simple and preventing from a lot of moving pieces that could break down, they both use DigiTech GSP1101 preamp. The only thing different in Chris Broderick's rig is his guitar, he currently is using a Ibanez Prestige. While Broderick preferes the RG series, he's rolling with the Prestige because of the trem system.
