    Dave Mustaine Introduction


    Dave Mustaine, formerly referred to as David Scott, who was born on September 13, 1961 in La Mesa, California, USA, is the Megadeth's guitarist, singer and songwriter. He grew up in Southern California suburbs. As the center figure of Megadeth and a original Metallica songwirter and lead guitarist, he's also one of the pioneers of speed metal and trash metal music.Three Decades Ago when Dave Mustaine left his 1st band Panic, Metallica's drum player Lars put up an ad searching for a lead guitarist. So he become a member of Metallica being the team's lead guitarist.Just after removed by Metallica in 1983, Mustaine was really indignant, and vowed to put together their own band. Therefore he set up Fallen Angels this year, and during the summer season he met bass performer Dave Ellefson, and finally they organized Megadeth, starting a different thrash story.



    Jackson Y2KV 


    The Jackson Y2KV was conceived by Dave Mustaine, who was attempting to produce a a lot less provocative, form modified flying v guitar. Compared with his frequently employed king v, this guitar, as Mustaine's individual designs, mainly employed for the tour of Risk and the World Needs a Hero. In reality, this electric guitar by no means mass made.


    Jackson y2kv dave mustaine signature guitar was built in 2000 (please check out the previously mentioned jackson Atlas2000). Atlas2002 is listed below. The very first batch of 32 Y2KV was manufactured in January 2000, set up from March to August. An additional above 80 electric guitars were manufactured in Sept 2000, and also the last 33 had been processed in December. Just before this series was stopped in 2002, additional 150 were made.


    Dave mustaine had received a lorry of Y2KV models, he took 10 from the first batch of 32, and it appeared that he took another fifteen later. He had a lot of custom Y2KV and had marketed out almost all of the Y2KV models, the first time by means of Andy Brauer, and later on through eBay, others were presented to his friends.On Andy Brauer Auction 2002, Dave virtually sold all Y2KV electric guitars of the 1st batch. The image below is one of the electric guitars at auction.



    Once the contract of Dave and jackson were expired, he got a lot of Y2KV guitars, every one of which had a higher serial number, and was sold on ebay.



    Jackson Custom Store Y2KV


    The photograph below is J6612, and the only 12-string Y2KV guitar, along with the J6648 featured a floyd rose bridge and silver sparkle finish. The 2 guitars had always been within Dave's hands and was sold off on the internet on megadeth public web site. 




    Jackson Doubleneck Y2KV


    Jackson also manufactured a double-headed Y2KV for Dave and sold it through Andy Brauer. This guitar was probably to be among the list of even bigger instruments manufactured by Jackson.




    In general, you can find a lot of Dave's Y2KV guitars, each and every of which is classic, what we duplicated is the American flag model. we repeatedly researched the features of the product, and cloned it as equivalent as possible. The woods we employed are the exact same as those employed on the unique design. The wood for neck, body and fretboard are just the same as the originals (all substantial good quality wood!) The standard pickups we used are Wilkinson pickups, which is not only quality promised but also cost-effective.


    Given that our instruments are modest batch produced, the price, compared with those custom crafted ones, is far more affordable. However, the inventory is limited, so if you actually like this design, please take the time to make contact with us quickly.
