With its beveled edges, this V really looks like it can fly. Mustaine remarks that this guitar's neck is even better than what he has played before, and that the deluxe inlays, which are like a dot/sharktooth combo, are remarkable.

Seymour Duncan Livewire Dave Mustaine Active Pickup Set

Seymour Duncan Livewire Dave Mustaine Active Pickup Set

The Livewire Dave Mustaine Active Pickup Set's active preamp allows higher gain and more output without losing tonal response and feel. The resonant frequency of both the bridge and neck pickups are intentionally matched with an SH-4 JB humbucker and an SH-2N Jazz Model respectively so you get all the benefits of an active pickup without sacrificing the famous Seymourized organic tone. Low noise, discrete Class A circuitry can be operated at up to 25 volts for extremely high headroom. Low-profile coil geometry allows high efficiency and enhanced dynamics. Black nickel-plated cover offers a pro look and minimizes tonal coloration. Great for classic rock, punk, garage, thrash, old school metal, nu-metal, black metal and other heavy rock and aggressive music styles. Includes all necessary mounting hardware, pots, jack, and battery clip.
