Limited to a first run of 50 pieces, the Hand-Aged Bulldog has the look and feel of a guitar that''s been played for years.

Hayward, CA (May 1, 2013) -- Each AXL USA Hand-Aged Bulldog has been aged to perfection by our expert craftsmen to produce a one-of-a-kind instrument. Limited to a first run of 50 pieces, the Hand-Aged Bulldog has the look and feel of a guitar that's been played for years.

Just like our award-winning USA Bulldog, the Hand-Aged model features a solid mahogany slab body and one piece set neck, top-shelf components, including a Lindy Fralin dog-ear P-90, TonePros Featherweight wraparound bridge, CTS pots, Orange Drop Capacitor and TonePros Kluson vintage-style tuners, and our "Bite Switch," a push-pull pot to bypass the tone potentiometer for a biting mainline sound. For custom shop performance, we assemble every Bulldog by hand in our Hayward, CA workshop -- from pressing the frets to wiring the electronics.

The Hand-Aged USA Bulldog is a hand-assembled instrument that sounds, looks and feels like it's been broken in from years of playing.

Available finishes: Transparent Red, Antique Brown

Street: $699

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
