“I have a lot, a lot, a lot of gear, Mustaine says in the accompanying video. “I’ve got a lot of doubleneck guitars, I’ve got a lot of prototype stuff, I’ve got absolute killer collector’s item stuff… for the right guy.”

“When I die, I don’t want a guitar in my coffin,” he continues. “Some of these guys want to be buried with stuff – I don’t want to die. I want to live forever.”

Mustaine is currently undergoing treatment for throat cancer, the diagnosis of which led to the cancellation of Megadeth's 2019 shows.
