“It’s an honor to welcome icon, pioneer and visionary musician Dave Mustaine to the Gibson family as our brand ambassador,” said Cesar Gueikian of Gibson Brands. “Dave is one of the most influential metal icons and riff Lords of all time He’s paved the way for several generations of players to fly the flag for hard rock and heavy metal, from riff writers to shredders and everyone in between. Working with Dave is particularly enjoyable as he’s a guitar weirdo like me who is meddling in all aspects of developing the concepts and ideas we came up with with him at the Gibson Lab When I was learning guitar as a kid, I aspired to play Dave’s riffs and I was one of the lucky fans to work on their ‘Youthanasia ‘Tour concert at Estadio Obras Sanitarias in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where the’ Aguante ‘Megadeth’s vocals was born over the song “Symphony Of Destruction” It was an epic night I’ll never forget. I look forward to bringing this partnership to life and introducing the first stages of the Dave Mustaine Collection to the world “
