Great sounding guitar - Good Sustain, Screaming pick-ups that still have good definition - , Really light but solid feel, I love the neck on this guitar. All of these reasons are why I have put up with it. I have owned this for about 2 years and just play in the home. I had to return it twice because of bad input jacks out of the box. Since then I have had to have both volume knobs replaced and It is heading back because the pick ups have shorted out. After this I will have replaced all the electronics, hopefully I will be done after that. If this was at all reliable I would give this 5 stars but the headaches have been non-stop. When it worked I loved it but buyer beware.
I purchased this guitar but with the VMNT Fear graphics instead because I wanted a great Metal/Rock guitar with artwork. This axe is more than I expected. The neck extremely fast on attack and very comfortable to traverse. The Duncan Live Wires were a surprise considering that all my other 13 axes are passive. Harmonics, buttery leads and heavy chugging spot on, no problem. I play through Line 6 DT50-212 at home for practice and Orange Dual Terror 30w head w/4x12 cab, Line 6 M9 stomp pedal on the front end for gigs. It sounds stellar on both rigs. I cannot say enough about this guitar. Dean made the perfect Metal/Rock guitar. The only negative thing about this guitar is that it is tough to play sitting down unless leaning back, which is the case for all V's. Run out and buy one if you want to shred and sound great doing so.
Full dis-closer ~ I have been a BIG FAN of Megadeth since 1985 to today ,I have bought all 13 Studio Albums & Have seen them Live 15 times very soon will be 16 times. ~~Ok with that said,Let's get to my review~~ Over my 27 years of playing guitar I have had my more than fair share of guitars out of the box,this being my 1st Dean I have to admit I bought this guitar to hang on my wall with my other Signature guitars from over my years as a talking point/decoration ~~~> Out of the box ~~~> Kinda tough to get out of the case it hangs up on the top V on something like its to tight there,the case seemed Very nice outside but inside It does seem like shotie work ,Like they didn't spend much time on the inside ~~~~> The guitar out of the case was in TUNE (1st for me) The string are a bit to heavy for me seem like 10's,I can see some think the action might be a bit to high out of the box ,I was ok with it,There is more than enough adjustment to bring it down though.at the base of the neck where it meets the body is over the top Awesome it fits like a Glove to get to the higher frets BEST Blend to the body I have EVER felt,The neck itself is WAY Fast (LOVE IT),The pick~ups where the main reason i was thinking I was buying a Deco peace (9v battery I was having Flashbacks of the old EMG81'S)Well through that out the window I'm TOTALLY BLOWN AWAY with the Live Wire p/u ~ 1st I had to plug into my (lol) Laney Linebacker Pull out ( Yes I'm a old man I know lol) Tone was very wide range & the best Stain I've herd in YEARS on this amp~~~~Next was my Line6 III it just flippin Shredded on this Thick HEAVY Crunch with little help (I was late for Dinner & the wife was so mad at me I blamed the guitar lol)Next day I showed up at the hall I took the covers of my JVM Head & Cabinets & Cranked it Playing Clean on this amp raised a eyebrow or two in the room as e1 started to show up ,We jammed for 3 Hours & this is the only guitar I played with,From Blues,Classic rock,JP,to Trivium,5fdp ect. This guitar Stays in Tune VERY WELL ,I have already decided to add this guitar to my rotation when we play out & I could see it being my main Easily ....PS LOVE The positioning of the controls
I purchased a Dave Mustaine VMNT Sig. Angel of Deth, and I have never played any better guitar than this particular piece of art. It's my weapon of chioce on and off stage! It has unbelievable D.M. Live Wire pick-ups. The D shaped neck has a feel thats fast as hell and easy fretting, also the locking straps great for not dropping a costly instrument, the Angel of Deth Hellaciously Holy finish,incredible. The beveled edge of the guitar body is absolutly comfortable for the rythm hand. And not to mention the sound...WOW!!! I've owned it now for appx.3 months. I'll never regret this investment, shes beutifully,brilliantly,crafted and well deserved to a true guitar player and a long time MEGADETH fan. Thank you Fayettville, Arkansas Guitar Center, store management and employees for your assistance in helping me discover the absolute,hands down, best, guitar EVER!!! Its Perfect...
This guitar is beautiful! As soon as you open the case, you will be impressed. Then, when you pick it, you'll read that "it's really light" but it won't feel light. It will feel just like you think it should! Then when you grab the neck, you've heard "it's a little thick" but honestly, it will just feel right. When you plug it in, you'll expect the active electronics to squash everything even... but this one will still cut through and each string will articulate. I've been on a buying spree and loved this one so much... I bought a second. A great metal guitar. Clean? Not so much. Gain City is where you need to take this baby! I love it!
I buy one for myself and is really awesome, this guitar has the Dave's trash metal sound and is not bad to play some blues or a Rock'n'Roll, the neck of the guitar is excellent, i really recommend this guitar. (The only thing i think is bad is the case, is too big and heavy, and the guitar is big too so you can't take it to another case).
this guitar is really everything you could ask for and more! the dave mustaine live wires really give this guitar a ride for your money...and the angel of deth graphic will have any megadeth fan crying for this guitar..and the neck is great! i can see why dave would label this as his favorite guitar hes ever used!! i highly recommend this guitar!!
