OVERVIEW

From one of the most prolific musicians in heavy metal history!

A Dave Mustaine Signature V from Dean Guitars. Though that might say it all, you should also know that this beast comes loaded with screaming Dave Mustaine Live Wire USA custom active humbuckers, and Dunlop flush mount straplocks. 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.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

FEATURES
25.5 scale length with 24 frets 
Dave Mustaine Live Wire USA custom active humbuckers
Dunlop flush mount straplocks
Includes hardshell case

I just picked this guitar up used at GC and instantly bought it.First off I got the black colored one and it's loaded with Seymour Ducan pasive pick ups.The guitar is shown in this site as a VMNT and also shows the fret board isn't ebony with shark & dot inlays...I seen it played for 5 minutes and bought it. I've scored some decent gear used from Guitar center and this one was by far my best find.The guitar plays past and the action was set low with NO fret buzz anywhere, The Ducan pick ups roar soon after putting between half and full.I got it used and couldn't believe the over all condition it was in buying off the rack. I assume it wasn't there very long and found it hidden in the back corner.Great guitar even if you don't get one used it's one of those guitars that can do everything and obviously desimate f you crank it.The V shape body sticks out under your arm so be careful where you walk when it's strapped to you. I backed up into a cymbal the first night playing it but lucky for me NO damage, it was a light bump.

This is an ok guitar for the $ but nothing special. Great for budget minded guitarist, it's fairly well constructed, fit & finish were terrible but the sound was great. The pups have an incredible amount of clarity & tone, the flat radius fretboard is a double edge sword although fast its very prone to string buzz. The fretboard is ebony as stated but seems to be of poor quality due to its light coloring, the frest were decently leveled and played good. Dean needs to do more with its final set up & inspection though. Mine was strung with the top E & A strings not even in the bridge saddles and it groves the saddle from being tightened. I have owned numerous Gibson customs, USA Jackson's, Parker, PRS and others so maybe I expected a bit too much but this wasn't even a close comparison with exception of the the pups which blow EMG's out of the water IMO.
No bones or excess thrills just a guitar & case. Pick ups are the only standout feature.
Fairly decent for the $ but lack QC from factory. Mine had serious finish flaws as well as some hardware issues.
You get what you pay for.

Best Guitar I've Ever..held really

By Music4life3304

from Eastern USA

See all my reviews

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine V VMNT1 Signature Electric Guitar:

You can do pretty much everything with this guitar. I particularly play music similar to Megadeth, so obviously that's the main thing my guitar gets.. but it has low action which is great for especially lead guitarists, amazing pickup sound (no buzzing), and I can even get a pro sound from my little 15 watt line 6 when I couldn't do that as well with other guitars. I use the V with a Metal Zone pedal, and can get pretty close to Dave's sound without having the pro equipment.
I love everything about it
Everything works more than perfectly!
Always loved this guitar, and when I bought it, it was even better than I had hoped. Definitely worth the money, and I honestly would have payed more for it.

This is an awesome guitar for its price. I mostly play metal and this guitar roars. I am glad to have purchased it. Super sexy and super fast fret board. The best part is that its very light weight.

Great Shred Machine

By FlyingVman-uJ460

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine V VMNT1 Signature Electric Guitar:

I preordered the VMNT1 in silver, due to production problems it took 10 months to arrive. Let me tell you it was worth the wait. This guitar sounds great with the active pups and the neck is super fast. The guitar is well balanced and comfortable to play and has great sustain. The case is a little flimsy but the guitar fits snug and is well protected. I own 2 Jackson USA King V's and this Import Dean comes close in quality and tone for half the price. This Mustaine Signature model is perfect for metal and is definitely a great shred machine.

Dave does it again.. Better this time!!!!

By NemesisFrontman

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine V VMNT1 Signature Electric Guitar:

I ordered this guitar from my local shop and just picked it up yesterday. Let me tell you, this guitar is amazing!!! I also own the esp mustaine model and the Dean blows it away. Super fast neck, and the pickups sound better than any other guitar I own. Compared to my other axes this guitar feels like feathers in my hand. It is much lighter than othe V models I have played. I couldn't speak any better of this guitar even if I owned stock in Dean. It is definitly worth more than it costs!

Worth Every Penny

By AU-001

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine V VMNT1 Signature Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar during the 4th of July sale here on Musicians Friend. I received it today with a twinkle in my eye. No dings from shipping and I plugged into my Marshall and it's screams Metal. I was surprised to find that the signature Dave Mustaine pickups were also good for clean tones, this thing can do Blues to Rock to straight up Metal. I would recommend this guitar to any flying V fan or Megadeth fan. Dean Guitars and Dave Mustaine knocked the ball out of the park with his signature VMNT.

By Mat-BXOD5

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine V VMNT1 Signature Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar because I needed to add an heavier axe to my collection. Everything about this guitar is metal, and that is exactly what I needed. The pickups are amazing, the neck is fast and the action is low.

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine V VMNT1 Signature Electric Guitar:

Not joking. If you are looking for a Good Flying V this is it. The pickups are awesome, And the thing actually stays in tune for longer than 3 songs! I have a Spider 3 line 6 And a B-52 amp and it sounds great on both of them. My only Complaint is that the thing Dents really easy.

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine V VMNT1 Signature Electric Guitar:

I own this guitar and loved it more than any other guitar. Many of my friends say that Dean's guitars suck but I disagree. Deans are the best guitars I ever played. The only thing you have to not like on this guitar is that it's hard sort of uncomfortable when your sitting down with it. But other than that, greatest guitar I have ever played.

Dave you should have gone back to Jackson Guitars

By OldShredderdude

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine V VMNT1 Signature Electric Guitar:

Even though the VMNT1 plays well and the Mustaine Active pickups sound great, I was extremely disappointed in this guitar. The first guitar I received the bridge broke through the top of the body in shipping exposing a hollow V body. The quality is below average with many cosmetic flaws. The one I kept had sloppy glue marks on the fret board, runs in the paint and there were gaps between the neck binding and neck paint. The hardshell case is flimsy but does protect the guitar. I ended up selling this guitar and buying and ESP, much better quality there. Dave you should have gone back to Jackson Guitars or compromised with ESP. I gave this guitar a 3 in features due to the Mustaine Active pickups and Grover tuners.

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine V VMNT1 Signature Electric Guitar:

This is a ok guitar . Just not worth the price. The action is ok but the second fret buzzes. Another important thing the spec says ebony fretboard, but mine came with that all too familiar cheap rosewood. The pickups and neck are the only redeeming quality on this guitar. Pinch harmonics are fairly easy to pull off. Another flaw is that there seems to be a large cavity in the mahogany body so there is a more hollow sound to chugging and low pedal tones. The string tension is also a big downer, cause I have 9's on it and bending up a whole step is a chore unlike all my other guitars.

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine V VMNT1 Signature Electric Guitar:

LOVE IT,LOVE IT,LOVE IT!! It's a fantastic guitar. I feel that Dean guitars overall feel a little too cheap for my liking but this thing feels like a top of the line guitar. It's super light weight, feels great in your hands, and has a great crunch to it. I'm running it through a Marshall EL34 100/100 Power amp with a Prophesy II effects processor and a Peavy Valveking 4x12 cabinet and the sound is just fantastic.I highly recommend this guitar. It's worth every penny.

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine V VMNT1 Signature Electric Guitar:

I own this(dean vmnt silver). Nice action, nice sustain, ok paint job, ok frets, pretty fast neck. Best part about this guitar Dave Mustaine signature active pickups, screaming clarity best way to put it. Only guitar I know that comes with strap locks big plus. Craftsmanship is ok at best guitar feels more like a toy than an instrument. Not a bad guitar but the price for this is extremely outrageous.

Tone all day

By Hunter Smith

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine V VMNT1 Signature Electric Guitar:

Dean and Dave really made a great guitar here, it sounds great when distorted and maybe even better when clean. The only thing to be wary of is the factory quality. So to sum up everything is that it's a great guitar for the money, it plays great, its metal as anything and It gets you the ladies.
All you get with this guitar is the case.
The only problem I have had was the first VMNT I received had really bad fret buzz on the A string so I sent it back, got a new one and I have had no problems at all.
You can get a better the Daves flying V and it really doesnt cost that much

Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine V VMNT1 Signature Electric Guitar:

This guitar is the best guitar I own. I also have the ESP v-500 this guitar blows it away. I play through a spider 3 75 it sounds so sick. It is light and plays super fast, I can pull a pinch harmonic easily and the pups are so good. Best guitar I own.
