CREATINGROCK HISTORY WITH BJÖRN JOHANSSON & PATRIC ULLAEUS
When guitarist Gus G was about to release his new guitar through ESP heteamed up with his old friend Patric Ullaeuswho together with Björn Johansson came up with the graphic and the whole RockART concept on Gus G’s signature model ESP Ltd GUS-600 EC -The RockART Guitar. Gus Gʼs most recent success has been something that nearly every metal guitarist dreams of: he was chosen as the new guitarist to play with the Prince of Darkness himself, Ozzy Osbourne. Being Ozzyʼs guitarist puts Gus in a lineage that reads like a hall of fame of heavy metal: Tony Iommi, Randy Rhodes, Brad Gillis, Jake E. Lee, and Zakk Wylde are some of the outstanding players that had this gig before him.
His latest Signature Series model is the LTD GUS-600 EC, which should be the perfect axe for his jobs with Ozzy. It features an amazing custom graphic finish"RockART" along with custom "Gus Fire" inlays. Unlike most EC models, Gusʼs new signature guitar has a 25.5” scale with set-through construction, and features a mahogany body with a maple neck (22 XJ frets) and rosewood fingerboard. It also offers Seymour Duncan Blackout ABH-1 active pickups, with a single volume control and an on-off mini switch. The GUS-600 EC uses black nickel hardware, including ESP locking tuners and a Tonepros TOM bridge and tailpiece. More @ www.espguitars.com
The RockART Guitar installation can be purchased @ Brand Design Center in Gothenburg and @ 7H in Kinna, Sweden. The RockART Guitar is featured here in the OZZY video 'Life Won't Wait'
