G&L Guitars News: G&L Launches Two New Tribute Series Jerry Cantrell Superhawks

G&L Launches Two New Tribute® Series Jerry Cantrell Superhawks

G&L continues its 2013 surge with yet another stunning, hardrocking guitar in the Tribute® Series line. Just how hard-rocking? Well, it's likely Alice in Chains' Jerry Cantrell will hoist one of the new Tribute® Series Superhawk™ Jerry Cantrell models along with his G&L Fullerton-made Superhawks and Rampages at upcoming concerts.

The surprisingly affordable Tribute® Series Superhawk™ starts out with the same soft Maple body and fast-playing Hard-Rock Maple neck with Ebony fingerboard as the popular Tribute® Series Rampage Jerry Cantrell. It even shares the same Paul Gagon-designed bridge pickup. But it adds a second Gagon-designed pickup in the neck position as well as a 3-position selector and a tone control with push/pull to coil split both pickups.

On the Tribute® Series Superhawk™, the Rampage's Kahler bridge is swapped for a beefy, gigproven G&L Saddle Lock hardtail bridge for more comfort, stronger sustain and rock-solid tuning. The neck sports a 12" radius, 22 medium-jumbo frets and a 1-3/4" nut width. Quite simply, the Tribute® Series Superhawk™ nails the Jerry Cantrell feel while offering added tonal versatility.

And it looks fantastic. The Tribute® Series Superhawk™ Jerry Cantrell comes with a striking Ivory body and matching headstock, with a jet-black Ebony fingerboard. The Tribute® Series Superhawk™ Deluxe Jerry Cantrell sports a Flame Maple veneer over the Soft Maple body with a gorgeous Blueburst finish and Gloss Black headstock.
