You gotta love an American flag guitar with exposed conduits and machinery and stuff underneath, and this Dean Dave Mustaine Mako Glory Acoustic Guitar does not disappoint.
I suppose this is ironic imagery—or heroic, perhaps —recognizing the often hidden and ignored heavy machinery that undergirds the American way of life. Leave it to a guitarist from Megadeth to expose this dichotomy. Mr. Mustaine, we salute you.
Seller doesn’t say where she was made but that’s easy enough to find out. Ask seller. (Award bonus irony points if she was made anywhere but the US.)
This axe is virtually new but it is classified as b-stock due to some cosmetic issues, specifically a finish crack between the “gills” of the sound hole and some white specks in the black finish. Seller assures us these affect playability not one whit.
She rocks a Spruce top, Mahogany body and a set Mahogany slim “D” neck with an Ebony fingerboard and Pearl Mustaine inlays. Then there’s her “Glory” artwork. Nothing succeeds like excess apparently.
She’s an acoustic electric and her B-band A3TY preamp with tuner should give you all the kick you need.
For an additional $40, seller will throw in a b-stock Dean hardshell case that might have a few dings and such but work and protect just fine.
10 folks are watching. I get it.
