Megadeth bassist unveils signature Kelly Bird bass at NAMM

The new David Ellefson Signature Kelly Bird Bass was unveiled at this year's NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) show in Anaheim, California.

The four-string bass features a basswood body with Ellefson's signature red pinstripe finish, bolt-on bound maple neck with 21 jumbo frets and block inlays, EMG pickups, two volume controls and three-band active EQ, Jackson high-mass four-string HM-4 bridge, and Jackson die-cast tuners.

The axe is available in Red Burst with Black Center-Stripe.

Megadeth are currently working in the studio on their new album.

The band are nominated in the "Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance" category at the 55th annual Grammy Awards, which happen February 10 in Los Angeles.

The track "Whose Life (Is It Anyways?)" is from the group’s 2011 effort, “Thirteen” – the same title being used by Black Sabbath for their reunion album due later this year.
