This was my birthday gift for turning 14. I could not be any happier. This was my upgrade from a cheap squier strat. This guitar is great for everything. Being a megadeth fan what more can you ask for than a Mustaine signature guitar? Im in a metal band and when i brought this my lead guitarist was wow'd. This guitar is great for palm muting which is something i really need as the rhythm guitarist in my band. Everything about the guitar is great and i would definitely recommend this to any guitarist on any level because it is very affordable and a great guitar all at the same time. Rock on everyone!

Had this guitar a few years back. I still remember every detail of it. The guitar is light, due to the basswood, feels cheap as expected. The tone is hollow, stock pickups are obviously pretty bad, fret buzz no matter how much you intonate it. Visually attractive, and the price isn't bad for someone who is a beginner and is curious about other body styles. For me personally, the fretboard felt very bland. As if it were a struggle to play anything at all.

Overall, for the price it's good. You want something that looks attractive to stun your friends or even if you're a Megadeth fan and you want a memorabilia hanging above your fireplace. Then I say go for it.

If you're a musician looking for a reliable guitar with great tone and feel, I urge you to pass on this instrument.

      Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNTX United Abomination Electric Guitar:

      This is a great guitar! The first thing I noticed on it was the neck..it feels and plays very well. The frets are smooth (no sharp ends) and the fretboard is a nice dark rosewood. The graphics are great and make the guitar look even "cooler" than it already is. The pickups sound good clean or distorted (you can always upgrade to hotter ones if you like). Plays great out of the box; the only adjustments I made were changing the strings to 10's, 1/4 turn of truss rod to loosen for neck relief, lowered the string action just a bit to fit my preference and oiled the fretboard. This is the first Dean guitar I have ever owned and I'm glad I bought it.

      Great for thrash!

      Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNTX United Abomination Electric Guitar:

      Okay so I got my United Abominations VMNTX today and I've been a huge Megadeth fan for about 8 years now. A little disappointed in it just because I mean, hey it's a $300 guitar! The neck feels kinda cheap but it's real fast and great for soloing, the pickups are alright but if you're not playing in a band like I am you don't really need to worry about it since you won't worry too much 'bout your sound. Its graphic is just stunning, lots of detail! Pretty much the only reason I gave this guitar 4 stars was because of its pickups, other than that everything is pretty great!

      Can Be A Great Little Guitar With a Little Money and Elbow Grease...

      By MudKatz58

      from Van Buren, AR

      Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNTX United Abomination Electric Guitar:

      After fixing everything that was wrong with the guitar, I had a really nice playing, great sounding guitar that stays in tune. Another example of the poor workmanship was that the holes that were drilled for the string ferrules (it is a string thru body) were drilled too big for the ferrules, so that they sit below the level of the back of the guitar. I had to clean a lot of wax or rubbing compound out of the holes. Not so on my "End Game". Truthfully, even thought the "End Game" guitar cost just a little more than the "United Abomination", it looks and plays like a guitar costing in the higher price range. I'm still a Dean fan and a Dave Mustaine Fan. I've got the rest of his signature guitars in my wishlist for later purchases.
      The Dean Dave Mustaine "United Abominations" VMNT X comes loaded with most of the features on the more expensive Dean Dave Mustaine models. The problem is that it's not put together very well
      There wasn't one screw that was tightened the way it should have been, from the Grover keys on the headstock, to the neckplate, to the strapbuttons, and the volume and tone pots. All of the screws on the Grover Keys had to be tightened, as did the neck plate screws and strap buttons. The volume and tone pots just spun around...they weren't tight at all. I tightened them and then noticed that the nut holding the pickup selector switch in place was put in sideways and the nut was also broken in one place, so I had to tighten and replace that nut. The screws on the jackplate were also loose. After I tightened everything, I decided to replace the strap buttons with Dunlop Straploks. Replacing the button on the upper wing was a breeze. However, they incorporated a strap button as one of the neck plate screws. I had to use wood dowels and a bit of wood glue to get the straplok button to fit properly. That was something that should have been thought out a little more. I also own the Dean Dave Mustaine "End Game" VMNT and it was perfect right out of the box. Practically in tune and every screw tightened the way they should have been.
      Good value for the money...IF you don't mind putting some work into the guitar to make it playable.

      very good v guitar

      By HEIDI ROBINSON

      from ut

      Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNTX United Abomination Electric Guitar:

      ignore the guy saying the graphic is just a sticker on top of the body. it is a sticker, but then the guitar has a thick layer of hard clear plastic laminate. that guys guitar probably didn't get laminated while they were making it. he should of sent it back to the company. you aren't going to get a hand painted guitar for this cheap that is for sure. and the wiring problem in the input jack is his fault. when the input gets loose people think its a good idea to simply tighten it using they're fingers. this not a good idea!!! what you end up doing is twisting the wires on the inside of the jack, and eventually they end up snapping off at the soldered points. you need a special input jack tightener to avoid this problem. i have had this guitar for about 3 years and it is still running smoothly. it works great! the pick ups aren't the best, but put a pair of black outs or EMGs and this guitar will be a machine. this is still one of my favorite guitars to this day. the neck is nice and thin for shredding. the guitar sits really well when your playing standing up. the tuners are great. i would highly recommend this guitar to anyone who likes the V style guitar profile. its a great guitar!!

      Finally...

      Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNTX United Abomination Electric Guitar:

      After playing this for awhile at a guitar shop, the VMNTX series seems like an excellent choice for those who want an awesome looking, sounding, and playing guitar on a budget. I will probably be getting the regular one in grey, although it seems that the jack is in a different place on that model. Very well done, I applaud Dean for this effort.
      This guitar has a fabulous set of features that make it worthwhile for almost any style of play. Namely, I am referring to the dual volume knobs. This makes it easy to switch from riffing or clean work to solos without using any sort of pedal, or create a killswitch effect. The pickups are nicely matched and sound similar while still maintaining a nice amount of variation. The neck, as with most Deans, plays very comfortably and fast. Add to this the V shape and top-horn output jack and this makes a fine sounding, playing, and looking guitar.
      At this price, you can't get better quality than a Dean, and this is no exception.

      BUY THIS GUITAR

      By Dean Fan

      from USA

      Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNTX United Abomination Electric Guitar:

      You won't be dissappointed. Make sure you get this guitar setup before leaving the store and it will amaze you. Very fast fretting, super fast action on the neck, neck handles very accurately and very crisp in your hand. The palm muting ROCKS on this guitar, I am able to play Master of Puppets with all downstrokes faster than I could on any other guitar. I was very shocked for the value of what I paid! The stock strings are sub par. I personally like the PUP's because I have a digital VOX so it colors the sound well for me. Having trouble getting great bends, seems a bit stiff, but suspect it's the strings. I also will be taking it to a guitar guru for advanced setup simply because it plays so well now. My only problem with it is that it plays SO FAST I have trouble keeping my motions tight enough to play accurately. Great axe by Dean and you can feel Mustaine's influence on its unique setup.
