I'm also a fan of that guitar, even though Mustaine can talk nonsense, so I'm looking forward to this!

High-five!

It looks like you've got a decent kit there. You're probably lucky to only have a couple of chips to deal with. Sonic blue would look awesome too.

My money would be on EMG 81/81. You definitely don't have an 85, 60, or 89 there.

MS-2C has a cloth grill in grey (classic),
