John 5 started his career as a session player before making a name for himself as the axe man for hard rock heavyweights like David Lee Roth, Marilyn Manson, and Rob Zombie. For almost 3 decades, John 5 has been one of the most in-demand guitar players on the planet.

accents. Other features include red Dimarzio D Activator pickups, killswitch, custom one-piece chrome mirror pickguard/control plate and a custom embroidered hardshell case.
