Includes a Soundhole Label Hand-Signed by Dave Mustaine
Dave Mustaine, the legendary guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, and founder of the Grammy-award winning and multi-platinum-selling band MEGADETH is one of the most influential metal icons and riff lords of all time. His music has inspired multiple generations of players around the world. Gibson is proud to introduce the Dave Mustaine Songwriter. Designed in collaboration with Gibson brand ambassador Dave Mustaine, it features a slightly thinner walnut Songwriter body for playing comfort with a cutaway for easy access to the upper frets, a 24.75" scale mahogany neck with a 24 fret ebony fretboard (the first 24 fret neck ever installed on a Gibson acoustic guitar), mother of pearl teeth inlays, Grover® Rotomatic tuners, a TUSQ® nut, saddle, bridge pins, and a higher output LR Baggs™ VTC under-saddle pickup with soundhole mounted volume and tone controls. Vic Rattlehead artwork is featured on the pickguard and on a mother of pearl peghead inlay. A custom hardshell case is included.

Only 100 guitars will include a certificate of authenticity and a Dave Mustaine hand-signed soundhole label. A custom hardshell case is also included.
