Gus G. has established himself as one of the worldâ€™s top guitarists. Heâ€™s played and collaborated with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Steel Panther, Dream Evil, and his own band, Firewind. On top of it all, heâ€™s released three solo albums that push his brand of power metal into new territory. For his continuing contribution to the metal world, Jackson has bestowed him with his very own signature model â€” the Pro Series Gus G. Signature Star. This signature guitar is a unique take on Jacksonâ€™s Star body shape thatâ€™s been specâ€™d out to Gusâ€™s demands. Take it from us at Leaseville, the Gus G. signature guitar is one that you wonâ€™t want to pass up.
The Gus G. Signature Star features Gusâ€™s custom Proteus humbucking pickups that churn out a high-gain, low-noise tone suited to powerful playing styles â€” just like Gusâ€™s. Sensitive and ultra-responsive, the Proteus humbuckers are also ideal for highlighting fingertap-style playing and pinch harmonics. When you plug this baby in, itâ€™ll become a fire-breathing dragon that scorches through solos and heavy riffs. Gus G. swears by Proteus pickups, and so will you.
This guitar doesnâ€™t just have stellar electronics. It has a one-piece maple neck that runs through the entire body. On either side of the maple neck, a pair of mahogany wings are attached to provide extra resonance. Neck-through designs are very stable already, but Gus G. and Jackson upped the ante by adding two graphite reinforcement rods to ensure the neck is as stable as possible.
Dialing in your perfect tone on the Gus G. Signature Star couldnâ€™t be easier. Itâ€™s equipped with a traditional 3-way pickup selector switch that lets you pick from the neck, bridge, and a combination of both humbuckers. Since it only has a volume pot, you can focus on playing instead of spending time getting your tone just right. This guitar is equipped with chrome hardware, an adjustable bridge, and an anchored tailpiece.
