When Jackson released the Gus G signature model in 2017, it was kind of a big deal. The Firewind guitarist was previously playing ESP star and Eclipse models (which I’d love to buy), so switching to a Jackson was a shock. Full disclosure, I originally chose this one more on looks than anything else. And really, when the decision came down to two criteria, it was kind of an easy choice. Those criteria? I want a pointy guitar, and I don’t have a Jackson. One of those is a pretty terrible reason to special order something isn’t it? In hindsight though, it all worked out perfectly.
