The guitar was presented to Mustaine on 23rd December 1998 wasfeatured on the cover of Guitar Magazine the following year.

The Jackson was somewhat of a contrast to King V that he wasplaying throughout the 90's and was used whilst touring'Risk' (1999) and 'The WorldNeeds a Hero' (2001) albums. Mustaine designed theguitar as his vision of a far less-aggressive retro-looking flyingV.
