G&L Guitars Releases the Detroit Muscle Series

Four historic Mopar colors with six legendary G&L models.

Fullerton, CA (February 19, 2015) -- The G&L Detroit Muscle Series draws inspiration from some of the most iconic and sought-after American muscle cars of the 1960s -- the very same cars that have fueled the modern day resto-mod car scene that is thriving in Orange County, California, home of G&L Musical Instruments.

Hot on the heels of the SS Collection, the G&L Detroit Muscle Series adds firepower with the new R/T Collection by combining four historic Mopar colors with six legendary G&L models. Once again, G&L has turned to Mitch Lanzini, owner of world famous Lanzini Body Works (featured on TV's Overhaulin' show) to provide expert guidance and ensure these high performance G&L's sport the exact paint hues for Sublime Green, Go Mango, Plum Crazy and Panther Pink offered on the ASAT Special, ASAT Classic Bluesboy 90, Fallout, Legacy, Legacy HB and LB-100 Bass. Each model features a color-matched headstock and 1-ply black pickguard for a clean, sleek look.

The R/T Collection celebrates wild child of the Detroit Big Three during the psychedelic era. From Flower Power to HEMI power, Chrysler was the only car maker to fully embrace all sides of the youth movement of the ‘60s and ‘70s. These four Mopar colors flout convention and command authority, just like the Dodge Scat Pack did in 1970. Panther Pink looked wicked wrapped around a thundering HEMI Charger R/T. Trans Am wouldn’t have been nearly as cool without Sam Posey’s Sublime Green Challenger T/A tearing up the track. Nothing sounded at sweet as the honeyed exhaust tones of a SIX PACK Vitamin-C Super Bee. A Plum Crazy HEMI Challenger was as stunning as it was furious. And now, these live-out-loud colors bring their high energy vibe to you favorite G&L model.

While the colors pack '60s nostalgia, the power and handling of G&L instruments will alter your mind, just like the legendary Mopar machines did in their time. Unique high-performance features include a Leo Fender-designed Saddle Lock Bridge with chrome-plated brass saddles (ASAT Special/Fallout/LB-100), a Leo Fender-designed Dual Fulcrum vibrato with forged brass saddles (Legacy/Legacy HB), a heavy-duty Boxed Steel Bridge with individual brass saddles (ASAT Classic Bluesboy 90) for enhanced sustain and tuning stability. Throw in Plek fret processing, and of course, legendary G&L craftsmanship and these ground-pounding classics are sure to out-perform the competition.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
