April 2, 2013
Pieces of rock history owned by Jimi Hendrix, John Entwistle, Dave Mustaine, Ted Nugent, Steve Vai, Scotty Moore, and more.
Dave Mustaine's Jackson 12-string V
Dave Mustaine was ignominiously dismissed from the lead guitar slot in Metallica, he could have easily slid into obscurity as the heavy metal version of Pete Best. Instead, he quickly formed Megadeth and made metal history. Like most old-school metal heads, Mustaine had a soft spot for Jackson guitars. This one is truly bizarre; it's a 12-string Jackson V. As Dave himself put it, "This guitar is the only one of its kind in existence". In addition to personal use, I used this guitar in the recording of the song "Wanderlust" off the album Risk . It's currently on display at the Hard Rock Cafe in Denver, Colorado.
