Majik Box Body Blow Jake E Lee Mod Overdrive

PRESS RELEASE: After months of R&D and serious road testing by the man himself, Jake E Lee (current Red Dragon Cartel and former Ozzy Osbourne and Badlands guitarist), Majik Box is proud to begin shipping the new Body Blow Jake E Lee Mod overdrive.

Join us as we take a peek, won’t you? Read More …
