From the “That Which Does Not Kill My Career Can Probably Fatten My Paycheck A Little More” department: Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine is auctioning off the wrist splints he wore after suffering a compressed radial nerve in his left arm six years ago, an injury that many thought would end his career. (Mustaine was among them; he broke up Megadeth that April, only to reform the band two years later.) Bidding is at $300 now, but there are still five days left in the auction! And they’re even autographed! In black Sharpie! After the jump, Mustaine demonstrates the gear.
Why do I have a feeling that whoever buys these is going to make a YouTube video of himself playing guitar while wearing the plastic mechanism? Call it a hunch.
