The Dean Mako Dave Mustaine is constructed from solid Mahogany back and sides with set in Mahogany neck for an extremely warm and rich tonality. Mahogany is a dense wood with a close grain providing a punchy and projective tone with a distinctive woody characteristic whilst the solid Spruce top delivers crisp and bright characteristics to the tone.
Incorporating a powerful and versatile B-Band A3TY Preamp the Mako USA Flag can easily be connected to amplifiers and PA systems making it perfect for live performers. The B-Band A3TY Preamp system also features a range of built in controls including a 3-band EQ, presence and volume controls to allow you to shape your tone before the signal even reaches the amplifier. Perfect for quick tone adjustments between songs the A3TY Preamp also has a built in tuner with LED display for seamless tuning adjustments on the fly.
With a set-in Mahogany necks sculpted to Dave Mustaine's unique specification the Mako USA Flag maintains the resonance and durability of thicker D shaped necks but with a slightly thinner profile to allow a smoother playability and easy access to the higher range.
