I was fortunate enough to get one of these Dean Angel of Deth's in about a week. When it arrived my guitar tech was the first to look at it and was very surprised at the quality of the work. Especially the fret work. This guitar really screams metal. One thing I noticed right away was the shape of the neck. It's not a super thin neck like an Ibanez wizard stlye. The shape is a "D" but with some heft to it. Don't be scared it is very comfortable to play. The pic ups where a nice surpise as well. Yes they're active but, you can get some great warm vintage rock tones out of them. They may not be as balls out as some high output pick-ups out there but their articulation is great. Like most Deans this thing is big. Big head stock, big body and big case. I have to crank my guitar stand to it's max length so that it doesn't touch the ground when I rest it on it. Last note about it is the frets. They are a little different than what I'm used to. Not as wide as a jumbo but they stand a lot taller than any I've ever used. Makes for easy trils and taping. buy and enjoy

First off I love this guitar when it works. I bought it 2 years ago and only play it in the house. It's light but sturdy. Has great sound. Screams when i ask it to and growls when i ask it to. Amazing metal tone. I love the neck. Overall a great playing experience. That being said. I had to return the first 2 because they had bad input jacks. A few months later I was replacing a volume knob. A few months after that I was replacing the other volume knob. It is back in the shop getting the pick ups replaced because they had shorted out. I'm just having the rest of the electronics replaced. What should have been a great guitar has turned into a headache. If you are lucky enough to get one that works You'll love it but . . . my experience was not so good.

    Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNT Angel of Deth Electric Guitar:

    I have a PRS Torero and Zakk WWylde Les Paul both w/ active EMG's and I am VERY pleased w/ the sound of the DM pick-ups. The guitar is so light, but very solid. After cleaning the frets of the protectant that is on there, and wiping the fretboard w/lemon oil, I did put on a set of DR 9 Gauge. I have the cheaper Marshall mg100 half stack and a digitech RP355 processor, and I was blown away. If you want agreat looking and high quality instrument, you have found it! What a great instrument!

    Great Guitar!!!

    Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNT Angel of Deth Electric Guitar:

    I have owned this guitar for 2 years now. And I have owned many, many MANY guitars. This is by far the BEST guitar I have ever owned and played. It is so light, the fret board/neck is so comfortable, tuning is awesome and the pick-ups kick butt. I own the Angel of Death VMNT and am going to purchase a Black VMNT next. I have turned a lot of people onto this guitar by just allowing them to play mine. You will not be disapointed with this guitar. GET ONE!!!!!

    Dave's Deth Sauce!!!

    By skin2ink

    from Georgia

    Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNT Angel of Deth Electric Guitar:

    Ok, first off, my opinion will be a little biased because mine came with issues right out of the box. I will hit the lows and then comment on the highs.First off, mine had a switch problem when I got it. The distortion was screaming, but when I would go to clean I would lose like 75% volume. I was like 'what the crap'? Anyway, I'm a gearhead, so I cracked it open and low and behold the bridge pickup ground to the selector switch was completely unsoddered, just dangling. Well, fixed that, but in the mean time I was overly scrutinizing. The graphics were hot looking, except where that bevel starts. They could have taken a couple of extra seconds to dress up the union, especially for the asking price. Then I took off the jack plate, and crap just came pouring out, some white powder, finish and chips. Lastly, the bridge heighth adjustment screws were rather thin, to the point of looking fragile.Ok, with all that said, here are the pros. Very hot pickups, but extremely articulate. Harmonics ring out like screaming eagles. I'm not sure what I expected from a 'D' neck, I guess a baseball bat, but I was pleasantly surprised at its shape. It isn't Les Paul thick, but not quite Ibanez thin. It is somewhere in between. Very easy to play. Intonation wasn't spot on, but with minor tweakage it was perfect. Ultra light, I'm talking creepy light, but I didn't notice it taking away from the tone. It has great distortion, and only required backing off on the knob ever so slightly to have buttery cleans.All in all, I can't complain. Still, its a solid part of my collection now. Go get your own!!!

    Angel Of Deth

    By VMNT

    from Smyrna DE

    Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNT Angel of Deth Electric Guitar:

    Oh my god this guitar is incredible. The guitar feels lightweight for its size. The Dave Mustaine signature pickups have incredible tone and crunch. The neck is smooth and fast, and all the frets are within easy access. There is no transition from neck to body, so the joint is incredibly smooth. As always, the V shape looks incredible and sharp. At first I thought that the guitar would be awkward to play, but it actually is comfortable to sit down with. By the way, the picture on the site does not do this guitar justice. On top of everything, this thing is gorgeous. There is a sheen on top of the paint job that makes it even cooler to look at. Buy this guitar.

    Angel of Deth

    By MegaCon-MhCwD

    from armpit of america

    Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNT Angel of Deth Electric Guitar:

    I just barely got my new guitar 2 days ago, and this guitar is just FRICKEN AWESOME!!! I was really surprised by how balanced it is. I saw dave mustaine playing this guitar and I knew I had to get it. The straplocks are awesome. The only real problem is the pickups seem to take away some of the mids. But I've been waiting to get a 10 band eq anyway. Other than that, it's just perfect! get this guitar, you won't be sorry.

    the best yet

    By leader o deth

    from middle o freakin nowhere

    Comments about Dean Dave Mustaine VMNT Angel of Deth Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar on the looks alone, i didnt need to play i i knew it was gonna be bad. Let me be the first to say this guitar will not disapoint you, the looks are sick playability is amazing and i dont want to put it down. So if your thinking of buying a dave sig and ya wanna make a statement this might be the one for you. I have a few guitars at my disposal, like an explorer pro, a dv8r, zakk wylde buzzsaw, and a few more random guitars that are not as interesting. this is the one that gets me excited to play everyday so if that aint enough buy something else.
