He spent his youth in south California suburbs. Being the focus figure of Megadeth and a old Metallica songwirter and lead guitarist, he's also one of many pioneers of speed metal and trash metal music.Three decades ago when Dave Mustaine quit his initial band Panic, Metallica's drummer Lars published an advertisement searching for a lead guitarist. Therefore he become a member of Metallica as being the band's lead guitarist. After expelled by Metallica in 1983, Mustaine was really angry, and promised to create their own band. Thus he set up Fallen Angels this year, and inside the summertime he attained bassist Dave Ellefson, and finally they organized Megadeth, starting off another thrash story.
Dave Mustaine Y2KV Guitar
Y2KV was designed by Dave Mustaine, in an effort to create a less aggressive and retro-looking flying V guitar, to contrast for his usual King V. It was mainly used for touring of Risk and The World Needs a Hero as Mustaine's own model, with less than a dozen produced, including some prototypes. Eventually, the Y2KV went mass production and introduced in 2000. The Y2KV is a Dave Mustaine signature model and differs from all other King Vs in that it has rounded ends which seem similar to that of the Gibson Flying V. Because it was based much more heavily on the Gibson Flying V. For the closure song "Holy Wars", Mustaine uses a Y2KV stars and stripes (USA flag).
Before Y2KV, he used King V's, which were actually modified to Y2KV. Here's how he described the process at the time: "I've been playing Jackson guitars for about 15 years now and my main guitar now is a Y2KV, which is a little bit different from the King Vs I have. My first Vs were all custom ordered because they didn't make a 24-fret V, except as a special order. One of the modifications I've made on the Y2KV is that I got rid of the Kahler and put a stop tailpiece on the new model. Another change is in the construction and body design. The King V has sharp points, King V but the Y2KV has rounded ends and the wood used is a little bit softer, so it has a smoother sound and it resonates better. I don't dig the harder woods because I think the tone is too brittle. I think the wood is mahogany and the fingerboard is rosewood or ebony (The woods we utilised are the very same as those utilized on the original design. The wood for body and fretboard are the same as the originals)"Moreover, Dave Mustaine Y2KV is available in four stunning, high-quality finish options: US Flag Graphics, Black and White, Snow White and Black Pearl. (Our replicated guitars contain four finishes, too)
