Fan Pays 11K For Dave Mustaine Guitar
Megadeth fan has spent $11,300 on a guitar that belonged to Dave Mustaine in an eBay auction. The prototype Jackson Y2KV (J6443) was designed by Mustaine and presented to him on 12/23/1998. The guitar was used on Megadeth's Risk and The World Needs A Hero tours and also featured on several magazine covers including Guitar Magazine in 1999. Mustaine designed the guitar as a less aggressive and more retro-looking flying V than the King V style that he usually plays. The guitar features the final 3+3 Y2KV head, but with dotted inlays, rosewood fingerboard, alternate knobs and a blade switch. The body shape is different to the guitar that went into mass production in the 2000s and the guitar is naturally unfinished. Megadeth have also posted a new studio update this week, which shows footage of Dave Mustaine, Shawn Drover and Chris Broderick working on tracks for the new album. The band's 14th record is being recorded at Vic's Garage Studio in San Marcos, and produced by longtime collaborator Johnny K.
