Double Rhoads(never in mass production)
The Double Rhoads was a symmetrical version of the Jackson Randy Rhoads with two longer horns, the first one was ordered from Overkill guitarist Dave Linsk. While the guitar was made, Ratt guitarist Robbin Crosby saw it and wanted a similar guitar.Jackson built him two, one red and one black (he later got his white DR).Circa 10 Double Rhoads’ were built before the design was changed with smaller wings and became the King V, the first King V was silver with black bevels.
 King V Custom (Custom Shop)
From start to 1990 this was the name for a King V with sharkfin inlays, neck binding and ebony fretboard. Pickup and bridge options were anything the purchaser wanted.
Same as above, but with dot inlays, no binding, and jun fretboard.
KV1(Artist Signature Series) (no longer in production)
The KV1 is a Dave Mustaine signature model and is the first commercially-sold model of the King V. Previously known as the King V Pro, the KV1 supersedes the King V Pro and eliminated the Cherryburst finish in favor of a natural Korina wood finish. The tuners were replaced with LSR locking tuners as well. The end-points were shortened from the prototype created for Robbin Crosby as it was created as a “Double-Rhoads” which has a longer point than this model (The “Double-Rhoads” has 2 equal length long points). All other variants below stemmed from this design. USA-made versions of this guitar are highly-coveted by metal guitarists and are typically difficult to locate for sale
From one of the most prolific musicians in heavy metal history!
A Dave Mustaine Signature V from Dean Guitars. Though that might say it all, you should also know that this beast comes loaded with screaming Dave Mustaine Live Wire USA custom active humbuckers, and Dunlop flush mount straplocks. With its beveled edges, this V really looks like it can fly. Mustaine remarks that this guitar’s neck is even better than what he has played before, and that the deluxe inlays, which are like a dot/sharktooth combo, are remarkable.
Dave Mustaine is the lead/rhythm guitarist, songwriter, and singer for the speed/thrash metal band, Megadeth. As the central figure of Megadeth and a former Metallica lead guitarist and co-songwriter, he is one of a handful of people considered to have pioneered thrash metal and speed metal.
Let’s look at what gear and equipment has been seen in Megadeath’s Dave Mustaine’s Guitar Rig.
GHS ELECTRIC DAVE MUSTAINE SIGNATURE
“These strings will last longer and sound better because I said so.”- Dave Mustaine
We couldn’t have put it any better! These strings will test your strength and tone, by using a combination of premium core wire and a “Filament Grade Alloy”. This alloy is the same strong wire used in automotive headlights and is magnetically activated to pull the tone through your pickups. Say goodbye to bland, because these strings will magnify any playing style.
The Jackson KV1 was the US-made successor to the King V Pro. The KV1 was in production from 1996 to 2001, making it the longest running Mustaine signature series. Specifications changed a little during the five years: Early KV1s were offered in either black pearl or natural korina finishes. Poplar was used as the body wood for solid colour guitars, and these instruments came with LSR tuners. According to the catalogues, pickups were a Duncan TB-5 and an SH-4, but I personally think they used TB-4. In 1999, alder replaced poplar as the body wood and Jackson also added two more finish options – black and transparent black. In 2000 LSR tuners were replaced by regular Jackson tuners and a Duncan TB-4 was used as the bridge pickup. I have seen both jumbo and thin frets on KV1s and the neck shapes have also varied, with the earlier examples having thinner necks.
Although the KV1 was Dave’s signature model, he didn’t seem to use them that much. However, he has been pictured with both a korina and a black KV1 and he also had at least one built with a Floyd Rose bridge.
