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 didnt discover at the time was the G&L Superhawk, a hard-charging model like the Rampage but equipped with twin buckers. Thats changed and so will rock history.
Its 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.
Tribute Series 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 bridge pickup, but adds a second pickup in the neck position as well as a 3-position pickup selector and tone control with push/pull coil split. The Rampages 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. Read More »
So just how good is this Tribute Series version? Well, Jerry played Tribute Series Rampages on the last AIC tour alongside his US-made ones, and there's a good chance you'll see Jerry on stage with a Tribute Series Superhawk.
