Megadeth’s David Ellefson posted a video of his band’s Thursday-night tour stop in Sioux City, Iowa, where he had a new toy to play with.

In preparation for the show, Ellefson was handed a new five-string Jackson Kelly Bird Bass and immediately rocked the bass line to “Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?”

Consider it the Ellefson Test.

Check out the Jackson signature artist and his Kelly Bird in the clip below:

Megadeth is wrapping their tour with Rob Zombie this week before playing Rocklahoma this week and then heading to Europe.
