JACKSON WELCOMES GUITAR PHENOM GUS G.

Jackson is proud and delighted to announce an electrifying new addition to its stellar artist roster—Ozzy Osbourne/Firewind/solo guitarist Gus G.
 
Gus G. has spent the past decade quietly affirming his place as one of metal’s reigning guitar virtuosos. He has recorded more than a dozen studio albums, performed around the world as a member of acts ranging from Arch Enemy and Dream Evil to his own band Firewind, and has been Ozzy Osbourne’s guitarist since being personally handpicked by the heavy metal legend in August 2009.
 
“I’m beyond excited and honored to confirm that I’ve joined the Jackson Guitar family,” states Gus G. “We’re working on new versions of my Star shape guitars that I’ve played for more than 12 years. Plus, the fact that my custom shop axes are built by the legendary Mike Shannon, who built Randy Rhoads’ first Jackson, gives me goosebumps and takes the excitement up 10 notches! Thanks to the Jackson team for making things happen, and I am stoked for this new guitar chapter ahead.”
 
Gus G. was born Konstantinos Karamitroudis in Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1980—the same year Jackson was born. His arrival brings even more heavyweight power and prestige to the Jackson family of world-class artists, continuing a long-cherished tradition of Jackson-wielding Ozzy Osbourne guitarists dating all the way back to Randy Rhoads and the company’s 1980 founding.
 
“We are beyond thrilled and honored to welcome Gus G. into the Jackson family,” states Jackson Artist Relations Manager Mike Tempesta. “His playing style, command of the instrument and dedication to the craft exemplify the type of artist that keeps the Jackson legacy alive and well. The entire Jackson team looks forward to an exciting future with the Greek Metal God!”
 
As well as his acclaimed contributions to several formative bands, the Greek guitar phenom has also embarked on a promising solo career. His 2015 sophomore solo album Brand New Revolution has received widespread critical acclaim, entering the sales charts in his native Greece at No. 18, in Japan (International artists chart) at No. 44, and in the U.S. at No. 22 (New Artist), No. 87 (Indie Chart) and No. 37 (Hard Music).
 
Gus G. will rampage across the U.S. this fall on a 20 date solo tour called “Operation Domination.”

World renowned, Greek guitar phenomenon, GUS G (Ozzy Osbourne, Firewind), will embark on the “Operation Domination” co-headliner, massive US  tour with renowned shredder, Angel Vivaldi, from August 31 - September 24. Be sure to either see below or head over to http://www.bandsintown.com/gusg for all tour dates and any additional information and daily updates.
 
 
GUS G states: "I'm very excited to return to the US this Fall to finally hit more markets and play for the fans that were left out on my recent Spring mini-tour. Teaming up with a talented player like Angel Vivaldi seemed like a great opportunity. We're both stoked to bring the 'Operation Domination’ tour to the American audiences and we will be performing our own individual sets, but also collaborating on stage together as well. We will have a great band with us that features James Paul Luna (Holy Grail) on vocals, Alex Bent (ex-Battlecross, Testament) on drums and Jake Skylyr on bass. 
 
“The setlist will once again be a mixed bag including songs from my solo works, Firewind, Ozzy material but some surprises as well. These shows are not to be missed. See you soon."
 
Vivaldi further adds: "For me this tour perfectly summarizes the evolution of modern guitar playing. To be able to share a stage with a force such as Gus is both inspiring and refreshing. I cannot wait to see the looks on people's faces when they see what we have planned! I'm also really excited to dip into music from all my releases including the upcoming re-recordings from The Speed of Dark: Revisited, coming out this year.
 
"After the recent tragic events in Orlando, I'm going above and beyond to make this tour a much needed celebration of love, inspiration and positive energy. I have some exciting tricks up my sleeve that I'm anxious to unleash on this run. It’s going to be a party!"
