Charvel Announces Ex-Ozzy Guitarist Jake E Lee’s USA Signature Blue Burst Guitar

Jake E Lee USA Signature Blue Burst

Jake E Lee’s original Blue Burst guitar first surfaced during his stint with Ozzy Osbourne, recording and performing live with the instrument throughout the band’s pivotal Bark at the Moon and Ultimate Sin years. Now Charvel® has recreated an unmistakable replica of Lee’s original model down to the very last detail.

The Jake E Lee USA Signature Blue Burst features a poplar body, one-piece bolt-on quartersawn maple neck and a 12” radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and white dot inlays.

Equipped with a versatile customized Seymour Duncan® JB Alnico II humbucking bridge pickup, this model can handle a diverse range of tones from sweet and warm to aggressive and distorted. It’s also supercharged with two powerful single-coil DiMarzio® SDS-1 pickups in the middle and neck for extra gain with a deeper, darker tone. The pickups are controlled with a five-way blade switch and single volume knob.

Available in a mesmerizing Blue Burst, this signature axe also features a brass Charvel hardtail bridge and output jack plate, and black Gotoh® tuning machines.
