Dave Mustaine's new signature ESP (not the DV8)

Dave had been trying to get Jackson to make him this guitar for years. Now that he's with ESP, it's become a reality. Unfortunately it's called the Axxion which sounds like a bad pun on 'action' and 'axe' but is explained below...



Dave sez:

Main Entry: ax∑ion
Pronunciation: 'ak-sE-(")šn
Function: noun
A hypothetical subatomic particle of low mass and energy that is postulated to exist because of certain properties of the strong force

Then there are the two "X's" instead of the one.

In roman numerals, X = 10, also known as a deca, or in the matter involving time, a decade.

It has been two decades since I started Megadeth. XX = 20

I kinda like it too, everyone needs a pointy guitar in their collection. I aint too sure about the name, but I am sure it will grow. Thats cool that he finally has achieved the dream of getting one built. I wonder if we can expect to see this one hitting the stores, in both ESP and LTD form? I am guessing that it wont be too long before it is released on the market.

This has been talked about quite a bit in Megadeth circles, and the guitar is actually gonna be released after January's NAMM show. Dave's prototype of it was at the Nashville show last month. But the production one will be available next year. (So far)

Right now ESP is struggling to meet the production of the new DV8 SE. They can't find enough tops to do the full run of 12 ESP's and 200 LTD's. The 200 LTD's is fine and will be made. But the ESP ones are more likely looking at being limited to 6 or 10 now. They will begin shipping in late September through December.

As for the Axxion shape, I think it's most similar to the Wave BC Rich's, like Tripp from Static X is using. Hopefully, it's a cool guitar for Dave. :-)
