Kiko Loureiro borrows a JB200C

I know he's an Ibanez endorser, but this still looks cool.

This is from a photo shoot with the band stopping in at Berklee. https://www.berklee.edu/news/megadeth-visits-berklee

I'd rank Sounds of Innocence as one of the best instrumental rock guitar albums ever recorded.

I saw them a couple weeks ago. The ease at which he plays their catalogue is sickening. He doesn't even need to concentrate :lol:

Al Pitrelli could ape Marty Friedman's material perfectly, as well. On a Gibson. With a cigarette dangling out of his mouth.

Megadeth really needed to call it a day after The System Has Failed. It was a perfect return to form after a string of disappointments.

Based on their current catalogue, Megadave now has more flubs under his belt than hits, and pioneering stuff like Peace Sells and Rust in Peace look more and more like flukes than a musical direction.

The album after that, United Abominations, is my 3rd favorite Megadeth album, after Rust In Peace & Countdown. I think the new one is really good too. I was a bit disappointed in the Chris Broderick era though. Those weren't horrible by any means, but really nothing memorable, either.

I like some of the newer stuff, it's not Rust in Peace but it's not bad either. Of course you do have to pick and choose through it. Endgame had three or four really solid songs.

Here's a real quick video from the show, Kiko's cleanliness is up there.

I wonder how long until MegaDave orders him to play a dean?

He better be careful, Dave might slap that Carvin out of his hands faster than he did Martys.

Little Dave has been using Jackson and Chris used Ibanez and Jackson over his time with them.

- Junior played Fender and Modulus before he went back to Jackson (which is Fender).

- Jeff Young played Anderson super-strats.

- Pitrelli played Gibsons (which was very shocking at the time).

- Lomenzo played Warwicks.

- Broderick played Ibanez and then his Jackson sig models.


The only guys that "followed" Mustaine's brand affiliations were Marty (Jackson), James McDonough (ESP) and Glenn Drover (ESP/Dean). Chris Poland worked for BC Rich, which is how Megadeth got that endorsement.

I was somewhat exaggerating with my post. However, Dave has a reputation of being very controlling.

According to Marty, Glen Drover, and other members, MegaD likes to "encourage" his members what to play. I have heard that he ordered Broderick to play Marshalls (according to multiple sources). And he quit very soon after.

I met Marty back in the day and asked him (as a big V220 fan) about his V220 and why he switched. Im not going to repeat what he said, I feel it was told to me in confidence, but it is the basis of my opinion.

BTW: I thought Jeff Young played a Kramer?

I thought I remembered him playing Performance Guitars parts-casters (a la Vai's early days), but a Google search shows they were Andersons.

Marty said in an interview for a guitar magazine way back in the early '90s what Dave said. Something about stop playing those ***** guitars and start playing a Jackson, if I remember rightly. If I don't, I apologize. But I do remember reading it in one of the rags...maybe Guitar For The Practicing Musician?

Chris was playing ENGL, and switched to Marshall after about six months to a year. Maybe that was Dave, maybe that was Marshall, maybe his ENGL contract expired, who knows. After another couple years they all switched to Fractal (which I have to believe was Chris' idea), and there are no more Marshall stacks behind the band at live shows anymore.

We all know the "rumor" about Dave telling Marty to "get a real guitar." That was 25 years ago, and people change.

I couldn't stomach anything after Countdown. RIP remains one of my all time favorite albums. I have their live RIP tour on my server, Broderick nailed Marty's licks pretty well, IMO. Haven't even given the latest a listen. I would expect another shovel full of disappointing radio music...

I actually liked Endgame because their guitar solos were INSANELY good and at least sounded modern despite playing in E standard (which is actually impressive to me).

I like this guitarist but Megadeth needs to mega go away. lol.
Rig goals:
1 A6C
2 AC375 (or AC475; 7-string preferred)
3 Carvin V3412
4 X64

7 Extended scale or Multiscale 6-string Bass
8 AM8/KVM8
9 K6CX/SCB6CX/DC6CX (26.5"/27" scale)
