PG's Chris Kies is On Location in Nashville, TN, for Summer NAMM '09 where he visits the G&L; Guitars booth. In this video, we get our first look at G&L;'s Jerry Cantrell Rampage (both import and USA models), where were introduced at the show. Both come built to Jerry's specs and feature a a heavily contoured body and a lone humbucker in the bridge position. We also get to see their F-100 reissue guitar that features a mahogany body, the option of Seymour Duncan or EMG active pups and a G&L; fulcrum bridge. In addition, we get our first look at the JB Bass which comes with either alder or swamp ash bodies, G&L; alnico jazz pickups and hard maple neck (either rosewood or maple fingerboard).
