ESP Guitars has debuted the Axxion, a new Signature Series guitar from Megadeth founder Dave Mustaine. The Axxion (pronounced "Action") represents an entirely new custom-designed body style built to Mustaine's specification. It's the guitarist's second ESP signature model, joining the DV8 introduced last year.

Designed for serious rockers, the Axxion's menacing axe-like shape is accentuated with black hardware on its all-black finish. It features a neck-thru-body construction with a 25.5" scale. Tone is generated through its mahogany body and 3-piece mahogany neck. The Axxion's ebony fingerboard is decorated with custom "XX" inlays. It offers Seymour Duncan JB and Jazz pickups at the neck and bridge, controlled via 2 volume and 1 tone control with 3-way toggle. Hardware on the Axxion includes Sperzel locking tuners, Dunlop flushmount straplocks, and a TonePros locking bridge.

The Axxion will also be available as a slightly more affordable model under the LTD brand, with the primary difference being the implementation of a rosewood fingerboard (instead of ebony on the ESP model).

In related news, Mustaine has also lent his name to another new guitar for LTD, the more affordable DV-200. Based on the popular DV-8 model introduced last year, the DV-200 offers a similar "V" body style in a bolt-on maple neck and basswood body design.
