New Dean V Dave Mustaine VMNT Terminated is one of three signature models for Dave Mustaine in 2017 celebrating Dean’s 40th anniversary. Commissioned by Dave himself and featuring more artwork from the Dystopia record the VMNT Terminated is built to his favourite specs – 24 frets, 25.5″ long-scale, D-profile neck and featuring his brand new Passive Aggressive Seymour Duncan pickup…

The Dean V Dave Mustaine Terminated features a beveled Mahogany body with a custom Terminated graphic. The special D-shaped set Mahogany neck has Dave raving that it may be his favorite neck ever, with a 25.5″ scale, 24 fret Rosewood fingerboard and dot/sharktooth combo inlays. Major hardware and electronics features include a string-through-body Tune-o-Matic bridge, Seymour Duncan pickups and Mini Grover tuning machines.

“I have been using Active pickups for quite a while now because Seymour Duncan wanted me to break their Active pickup line but I was always a Passive pickup guy so we did this. The Passive Aggressive pickups are modelled identically after the pickups in my Jackson no.1 King V which had been on all the big records Rust in Peace, Countdown and a lot of records even after that. The difference between that and the JBJ I was using is the pickup itself has all that experience, the browning out, the playing, wear and tear, the alkaline from my sweat and all that kind of stuff. They reverse engineered the pickup and figured out how to make it sound like it sounds, put it back together and this is that pickup”Dave Mustaine
