Blackstar Amps have revealed their very first signature amplifier, the new Gus G Blackfire 200, at the Summer Namm show.
The Ozzy Osbourne and Firewind guitarist worked together with the amp manufacturers for what they're calling 'the ultimate heavy metal amp'.

The Gus G Blackfire 200 features a custom cosmetic with brushed aluminium front panel with ‘Evil G’ logo and a cast metal Blackstar logo.
