The ideal acoustic-electric for shredding like the shark it's named after.
Dave Mustaine named his signature acoustic-electric guitar "Mako" because of its shark gill-shaped sound hole and shark's teeth pearl inlays. The soundhole provides plenty of projection, while the sharp Florentine cutaway on the mahogany body with maple 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 features 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 a Fishman preamp.

Comments about Dean Mako Dave Mustaine Acoustic-Electric:
This was my second choice out of the Mako Design. I was prepared, just in case they were out of the American Flag, Thin Body one. Very disappointing. It should be sometime next week when my Guitar arrives I am on Disability, which is the reason I am being such a stickler about this one. As they say though, "Good things come to those who wait." God is good, all the time.
Thank you for your Assistance. This makes my 3rd guitar purchase at Music Center.
