OVERVIEW

Dave Mustaine named his signature acoustic-electric guitar "Mako" because of its shark gill-shaped soundhole, dorsal fin-shaped bridge, and shark's teeth pearl inlays. The soundhole provides plenty of projection while the sharp Florentine cutaway on the mahogany body with spruce top promotes upper fretboard shredding. The built-in tuner ensures the only dischords you play are intentional. Dave uses his Mako in the studio for layering and texturing tracks and feartures it on the intro to "The Hardest Part of Letting Go." Other distinctive features on the Dave Mustaine Mako include an ebony fingerboard, black NuBone nut and saddle, Grover tuners, and B-Band A3TY preamp with the aforementioned tuner.

B-Band A3TY - 4-band EQ with Tuner
The A3TY retains the simple and small features that are big on sound and intuitiveness. The compact preamp has a 4-band rotary EQ, low-battery LED and a wide range chromatic tuner. The EQ provides quick and accurate changes. The chromatic tuner is fast and has a range that will be welcomed by players that want to tune a full step down from standard - great for open tunings! The tuner's readout shows all notes, including sharps, great for standard and open tunings. The tuner has a single window showing the pitch and four LEDs showing the half step, sharp, flat and in-tune. 9-volt battery powered HZZLess circuit.

Case sold separately.

A eye-catching acoustic-electric that bears the sonic marks of the metal master and some amazing graphics

    Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine Mako Glory Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I saw Dave Mustaine play this guitar on Guitar Center Sessions! I knew I had to have it! The action was high and it needed a setup! I paid for a setup. The action is now lower. This guitar is hard to put down! It plays like butter!!! A great value!

    Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine Mako Glory Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I was a little skeptical about buying a guitar with only a couple reviews, but i had to buy it and see for myself. It just came in today and the sound is amazing! Nothing beats the looks on this guitar, and the inlays are beautiful. It is definitely worth buying.

      Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine Mako Glory Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Bought this sight unseen but quickly realized it was not the guitar for me.

      It looks great, and played pretty well, but the sound was very flat. The range of sound was limited - I compared against my '95 Guild and it was no comparison. The Mako just didn't have the low's I expect and fullness I was looking for.

      Sending it back and will try my search again.

          Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine Mako Glory Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          Being a proud Veteran, the Stars & Stripes captured my attention immediately! I really didn't know much about Dean guitars but I took the plunge based on looks alone. I was not disappointed. It looks even better when you've got it in your hands! Playability right out of the box was perfect. Intonation... spot on. It sounds great plugged in or unplugged. This is the first Dean I've owned but it won't be the last. A great buy!
