Greek metal God Gus G. is one of metal’s reigning guitar virtuosos. He served as Prince of Darkness Ozzy Osbourne’s lead guitarist through from 2009-2017, while also establishing himself as an acclaimed solo artist with albums like I Am the Fire and Fearless. Gus G. has also managed to find time to perform worldwide with acts as diverse as Arch Enemy, Dream Evil and his own band, Firewind.

Jackson® pays homage to the prodigious guitarist with his very own Jackson® USA Signature Gus G. Star, which offers a fresh new take on one of Jackson’s original avant-garde body shapes.

His signature Star model features an alder body with through-neck construction to ensure ergonomic comfort during long sets along with monstrous sustain. The rock-solid maple neck has a satin finish on the back for smooth fret-hand playability, and a 12” radius bound pau ferro fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and mother of pearl big block inlays.

Created to meet his exacting playing-style needs, the all-new Gus G.-designed Blackfire Pickups active Proteus humbucker set provides powerful, rich tone and nuanced expression. Built with a high-output, low-noise preamp, these pickups deliver ample kick and distortion with well-balanced EQ and rich harmonics that respond perfectly to picking attach and dynamics. Harness its tonal power with three-way toggle pickup switching and a single volume control, and enjoy accurate intonation and enhanced sustain from the TonePros® TOM-style adjustable bridge with anchored Gotoh® tailpiece.

A formidable and stunning creation, the USA Signature Gus G. Star is available in Ivory with a pointed 6-in-line matching headstock, white binding and stylish chrome hardware, including the pickup covers.
