The Dave Mustaine Collection is expanding.

Gibson just dropped the curtain on the limited-edition Dave Mustaine Flying V EXP Rust In Peace guitar. Gibson’s expert luthiers collaborated directly with the Megadeth main man to create the new guitar which comes in a shred-ready Alien Tech Green finish.

The new guitar is inspired by Megadeth’s 1990 epic, Rust In Peace, the album that spawned the metal classics, “Hangar 18” and “Holy Wars… The Punishment Due.”
