Last month, after much speculation from the metal community, Gibson officially revealed its new partnership with Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, marking the end of Mustaine's 15-year relationship with Dean Guitars.

The first fruit of the collaboration – the Dave Mustaine collection – is so far set to comprise three electric guitars – including a new 30th Anniversary ‘Rust in Peace’ Edition Flying V – and a fresh 24-fret acoustic. The collection will include not only Gibson models, but Epiphones and Kramers, too.
