Congratulations to Kiko Loureiro​ on officially joining Megadeth! Dave Mustaine officially broke the news a few hours ago, saying: “I first met Kiko around 8 years ago for a cover shoot for Burrn! magazine. I had no idea who he was, other than the fact he was tremendously talented and that the staff from Burrn! held him in high regard. Since then I’ve come to see what a guitar virtuoso he is, and I’m deeply encouraged by his depth and talent. Very few Megadeth alumni have had the same feel and ability as Kiko. As Frank Sinatra says, “the best is yet to come!”

The dual pickup design covers a full range of tones in either bridge or neck positions. Read More …
