“I have a lot, a lot, a lot of gear. I’ve got a lot of double-neck guitars, I’ve got a lot of prototype stuff," Mustaine explained in a statement announcing his new store on Reverb. "I’ve got absolutely killer collector’s item stuff for the right guy. For me, my job is to put everything I can into this guitar so that when it gets put in somebody else’s hands, I can say, 'This is the guitar that wrote "Holy Wars."' I have always believed when it comes down to memorabilia with a band -- especially instruments -- I want to pass this onto people. I want them to be able to have something that I had. When I die, I don’t want a guitar in my coffin. Some of these guys want to be buried with stuff -- I don’t want to die. I want to live forever."

Among the items for sale are 20 of Mustaine's signature guitars, including a 1987 Dean Dave Mustaine Signature Holy Grail (No. 1 of 33) and a Signature Stealth VMNT the guitarist used a lot on tour.

Mustaine's Reverb shop officially opens on November 4. In the meantime, watch this humorous video the guitarist has shared ahead of the unveiling.
