Megadeth founder Dave Mustaine unveils two limited-edition Flying V EXP guitars in Red Amber Burst and Ebony VOS.


To create the new Limited Edition Flying V EXP guitar, Gibson Custom Shop luthiers collaborated with Dave Mustaine the legendary guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, and founder of the multi-platinum selling and Grammy Award-winning band, Megadeth. The Dave Mustaine Collection is currently comprised of seven models and continues to be a success--the Flying V RIP electric guitars, and the Songwriter (signed) acoustic guitars immediately sold out upon release. Gibson has plans for more Dave Mustaine Collection releases in 2023.

The Gibson Dave Mustaine Flying V EXP Limited-Edition was designed to deliver the powerful, heavy sound and playing performance on the stage and in the studio that Dave demands. The 25.5” scale mahogany neck has an ebony fretboard with 24 frets, Mother Of Pearl inlays, an Explorer-style headstock with Grover Mini Rotomatic tuners, and a Graph Tech TUSQ nut. Dave Mustaine’s signature is reproduced on the truss rod cover, and Dave’s silhouette is featured on the back of the headstock and on the included hardshell guitar case. The mahogany Flying V-style body has a maple cap (figured maple on the Red Amber Burst version) and is equipped with a Tune-O-Matic bridge, a string through body Chevron tailpiece, and a Dave Mustaine signature Seymour Duncan Thrash Factor pickup set. The Red Amber Burst nitrocellulose lacquer finish is complemented by gold hardware, while the Ebony VOS finished model is equipped with nickel hardware. Only 75 of each color have been crafted by the expert luthiers of the Gibson Custom Shop as part of this very special limited run.
