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 honors the prodigious guitarist with the Pro Series Signature Gus G. San Dimas.

This high-performance axe features a resonant mahogany San Dimas body with a sturdy through-body maple neck with scarf joint and graphite reinforcement to guard against the rigors of the road. The 12" radius maple fingerboard provides a flat surface for comfortable fretting and features 24 jumbo frets and black dot inlays, while the heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheels makes for quick and easy neck relief tweaks.

Ideal for rock and metal tones, a pair of passive high-output Gus G. Titan humbucking pickups feature an alnico 5 magnet and produce a powerful midrange boost with crunchy rhythm tones and screaming leads. Harness its tonal power with three-way blade pickup switching and a single volume knob, and enjoy smooth and effortless dynamic tremolo action with a Gotoh Custom 510 bridge.

An irresistible temptation, the Pro Series Signature Gus G. San Dimas is dressed in a sumptuous Candy Apple Red finish with a reverse licensed Fender Stratocaster matching headstock and black hardware.

"I Love This Guitar"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I'm very fortunate to be playing this guitar. I'm a Gus G fan but with all the research I did for this guitar I knew I was going to love it and man, do I ever. The components are top-notch. Don't trust the specs on this page though as it n eds updating. Yes it has a Gotoh bridge but it's not just a plastic nut, it's an actual TUSQ-XL which is the best in the business. A lot of guitar for the money. The neck is not Ibanez flat (thank goodness), but it's definitely made for speed and is amazing as an unfinished neck. Super smooth. I love that it's neck-through as well. The pickups are certainly some of my favorite I've ever played. (I've played for 26 years). The Blackfire pickups are considered hot but I've found them to be very articulate. Very similar to a Dimarzio Tone Zone bridge and an Air Norton in the neck. The neck pickup on the clean channel has no bite for a pickup as hot as it is. Such a beautiful sound. The response on them is perfect and reacts well to how hard you play. Again, you're getting a lot of guitar for the price point. Do not be put off by the "Made In China" or the non-aluminum frets. It's an amazing-sounding guitar and I'm really glad I was pining after it like I was. It exceeded my expectations. Pick it up and play it loud!!
