When Gus G. became Ozzy Osbourne's axman in 2009, the Greek shredder quickly became as scrutinized as the celebrated guitarists that preceded him in Ozzy's band, including Zakk Wylde, Jake E. Lee and Randy Rhoads. While his predecessors had relied on Marshall amps, the core of Gus G.'s sound came from high-wattage Blackstar Series One heads.
Now, fittingly, Gus—who also plays with his own group, Firewind—has received his own signature amp: Blackstar's new Blackfire 200 Gus G. head. Limited to just 225 examples, it is Blackstar's first signature head and, with its combination of modified American and British tones, it's worthy of both Gus' talent and Osbourne's classic metal-defining tunes.
