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 however retains 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 played covers provide an extremely sleek and stylish finish.
With a set-in Mahogany neck sculpted to Dave Mustaine's unique specification the Rust in Peace V 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.
The V Dave Mustaine incorporates a string-thru body construction to provide improved tonality and sustain by transferring vibrations and resonance from the string to the body as it goes over the tune-o-matic bridge and passes through the body.
