Loaded with two Seymour Duncan signature Livewire humbuckers, the V Dave Mustaine produces a super high output tone due to the built in pre-amp. But it still retains all of the organic sound qualities associated with Seymour Duncan pickups. Perfect for use with high gain tones, the Livewire humbuckers are designed to match the resonant frequency of the classic Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB and SH-2N pickups whilst the black nickel-plated covers provide an extremely sleek and stylish finish.
With a set-in mahogany neck sculpted to Dave Mustaine's unique specification, the Angel of Deth V maintains the resonance and durability of thicker D shaped necks but with a slightly thinner profile to allow for a smoother playing action and easier access to the higher range.
The V Dave Mustaine incorporates a string-thru body construction. This provides improved tonality and sustain by transferring vibrations and resonance from the strings to the body. The result is a much fuller, bigger sound.
