G&L USA Custom Made Jerry Cantrell Superhawk Signature Guitar in Ivory - Free shipping!
Twenty-something years ago,Jerry Cantrell bought his first G&L Rampage while working at a Dallas music store,and he still rocks ‘em hard today. But what Jerry didn’t discover at the time was the G&L Superhawk,a hard-charging model like the Rampage but equipped with twin ‘buckers. That’s changed and so will rock history.
It'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 ’59 in the neck position as well as a 3-position pickup selector and tone control with push/pull coil split. The Rampage’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.
