too bad he didn't play it live, professionally.

but if it's his first guitar, which I think it is, I understand
that he's being careful with it.

What is up with the ESP signature model?
I went to the ESP web site and they don't have it listed as a current model
or Jake as a current endorser.

Would you be willing to release a signature model if the artist is inactive ?!

if I remember correctly, the only guitar Jake owned during Retraced
was the X-tone, the others were borrowed.

In The Ultimate Ozzy Tour. It was the intro, Shot In The Dark, where his white SG was played.

that intro wasn't part of the concert though.
Just a simple 80's musicvideo.
listen again and you'll hear that it's identical to the album version.
they did the same thing to Lightning Strikes :!:
