Dave Mustaine


THE GUITARIST


As the founding member of Megadeth, Dave Mustaine developed a distinct musical style as both a player and songwriter, drawing his influences from a variety of rock styles. What sets Megadeth apart from other metal bands is Mustaine's strong sense of melody, great hooks and intelligent lyrics.

Dave's main guitar is the ESP DV8 Dave Mustaine Model, which he designed himself.
