 PJMA was started in St. Mary's County in June of 2003 as a franchise of the not for profit corporation, My Brother's Place Inc, Waldorf, MD; in 2009 it was incorporated in Maryland a separate not-for-profit corporation (EIN 27-0494664) with the following goals:


- To join musicians with the community to benefit the general welfare by provide opportunities to share Gus teamed up with ESP Guitars to make two custom model guitars to his specifications - To provide for the education of musicians to develop, improve and succeed with their art.
- To foster, coordinate, and sponsor musical performances with the community.
- To provide charitable contributions to benefit community welfare groups and activities.


Gus G. has spent the past decade quietly affirming his place as one of metal’s reigning guitar virtuosos. He has recorded more than a dozen studio albums, performed around the world as a member of acts ranging from Arch Enemy and Dream Evil to his own band Firewind, and has been Ozzy Osbourne’s guitarist since being personally handpicked by the heavy metal legend in August 2009.


“I’m beyond excited and honored to confirm that I’ve joined the Jackson Guitar family,” states Gus G. “We’re working on new versions of my Star shape guitars that I’ve played for more than 12 years.


Gus G. was born Konstantinos Karamitroudis in Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1980—the same year Jackson was born. His arrival brings even more heavyweight power and prestige to the Jackson family of world-class artists, continuing a long-cherished tradition of Jackson-wielding Ozzy Osbourne guitarists dating all the way back to Randy Rhoads and the company’s 1980 founding.


Gus G. will rampage across the U.S.  on a 20 date solo tour called “Operation Domination”; which includes a performance at Park Rock Fest 2016.
