A hard-charging model equipped with twin â??buckers.
Twenty-something years ago, Jerry Cantrell bought his first G&L Rampage while working at a Dallas music store, and he still rocks â??em hard today. But what Jerry didnâ??t discover at the time was the G&L Superhawk, a hard-charging model like the Rampage equipped with twin â??buckers. Thatâ??s changed and so will rock history.
Itâ??s been well over two decades since a G&L Superhawk was last produced. Now G&L is proud to announce the launch of the Superhawk Jerry Cantrell Signature Model, available in two USA-made versions as well as a surprisingly affordable G&L Tribute Series version.
This Superhawk starts out with the same soft maple body and fast-playing hard rock maple neck with ebony fingerboard as the Rampage. It even shares the same Seymour Duncan JB pickup in the bridge position, but adds a Seymour Duncan â??59 in the neck position as well as a 3-position pickup selector and tone control with push/pull coil split. The Rampageâ??s Kahler bridge is swapped for a G&L Saddle Lock bridge for improved comfort, stronger sustain and rock-solid tuning stability. This axe is all about capturing the Jerry Cantrell feel while offering more tonal versatility.
