You Can Own Dave Mustaine’s 1990 Custom Megadeth Leather Jacket for Only $4,814.26
Although it probably won’t look as badass on you as it did on Dave Mustaine in 1990, there’s a listing on Reverb.com for what is purportedly the red-maned one’s custom leather “Megadeth” jacket from the band’s Rust in Peace tour. The listing claims that only “about 15” of these were made for the band members and crew.
Here is the full text of the listing, which includes some information about how the jacket was acquired:
“If you want to make an offer or have any questions – I’ll gladly answer them
“For sale is a Megadeth – Rust in Peace – Leather Jacket – which came along with Dave Mustaine’s 2001 Touring Guitar Rig from the 2002 Andy Brauer Auctions.
(The Rig was used especially on Megadeth’s “The World Needs A Hero” tour.)
(Dave Mustaine Sold a lot of his personal guitars and gear through those Andy Brauer auctions).
Along with Rig there was a lot of Megadeth Passes, t-shirts, signed show programmes etc. which along with the jacket were not mentioned in the certificate that came with the rig – the original rig certificate is not included.
“The Rust in Peace jackets were made only for Megadeth band members/crew – about 15 were made.
“Made in USA – is a size “L” (Even though the label says M) – fits a 6 feet tall / 183cm perfectly.
Embroidered Megadeth and Vic Rattlehead logos.
It shows some small wear marks, but in general Very Good condition!
“A jacket like that can be seen worn by Megadeth band members in various youtube videos (for example “From The Vault” Birmingham 1990)
Buy it here if you’ve got an extra $4,814.26 lying around.
