Solidbody Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Mahogany Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, and 2 Humbucking Pickups – Silver Metallic

Ready to Thrash

Are you searching for a cauldron of pyrotechnic leads and thrash-ready riffage? If so, the Kramer Dave Mustaine Vanguard is ripe for the conjuring. This solidbody electric guitar is built around an asymmetrical “V”-shaped mahogany body, it boasts a shred-friendly 25.5-inch scale length, and its custom medium “C” neck and 24-fret ebony fingerboard are primed for performance. Dave’s signature Seymour Duncan Thrash Factor pickups arm you with Rust in Peace-era tone, with plenty of heat to handle any style of rock or metal. Dave Mustaine has been the architect behind Megadeth for nearly four decades, and this axe embodies everything that has made business good for the platinum-selling metal titans. Anyone hunting for a high-octane metal machine will be thoroughly blown away by the Dave Mustaine Vanguard.

Thrash-worthy construction

The Dave Mustaine Vanguard was built for high-speed performance. Its asymmetrical “V”-shaped body perfectly balances ergonomic comfort and stage-ready aesthetics. Its mahogany neck sports Dave’s custom medium “C” profile, and its ebony fingerboard comes loaded with 24 jumbo frets. Moreover, the guitarists here have found that the Dave Mustaine Vanguard’s 25.5-inch scale length provides a familiar feel for players used to prototypical shred-style instruments.

Mustaine-approved Duncan humbuckers

If Thrash Metal 101 were a college course, Megadeth’s timeless Rust in Peace record would surely make its way onto the syllabus. Originally delivered via a Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB bridge pickup, Dave Mustaine’s impressive fretwork on this iconic album typifies the molten-hot aggression and light-speed licks that would become trademarks of thrash metal guitarists the world over. The Kramer Dave Mustaine Vanguard’s Thrash Factor humbuckers employ an altered winding process to duplicate the sound of Dave’s original JB, resulting in a startlingly similar tone with tighter lows, slightly scooped mids, and more aggressive highs.

High-performance hardware

The Dave Mustaine Vanguard is equipped with a veritable tornado of high-performance hardware. For starters, you’ll appreciate the rock-solid stability provided by this solidbody electric guitar’s LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and string-through Flying V string plate. Its Grover Mini Rotomatic tuning machines ensure ultra-reliable tuning stability. You’ll also appreciate the look and feel of the Dave Mustaine Vanguard’s knurled-metal control knobs.
