Gibson has partnered with Dave Mustaine for the Flying V EXP Rust in Peace signature model, built to commemorate Megadeth's seminal 1990 album Rust in Peace. The guitar is the second Flying V EXP to arrive in the company's Mustaine line.

Arriving in an Alien Tech Green finish, the guitar sports a mahogany V-style body, 25.5" scale mahogany neck, a compound-radius, 24-fret ebony fingerboard with two-tone green/pearloid Rust in Peace diamond inlays, and an Explorer-style headstock with Grover Mini Rotomatic tuners.
