G&L releases two new, more affordable, Jerry Cantrell Superhawk models.

Fullerton, CA (July 26 2013) --   G&L continues its 2013 surge with yet another stunning, hard-rocking guitar in the Tribute Series line. Just how hard-rocking? Well, it’s likely Alice in Chains’ Jerry Cantrell will play 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, gig-proven 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.  

MSRP for the Tribute Series Superhawk Jerry Cantrell model is $715; for the Superhawk Deluxe, $787.

Gibson 1960 Les Paul 0 8145 is from the final year of the model’s original-production era, and likely from one of the later runs.

The story of 1960 Gibson Les Paul 0 8145—a ’burst with a nameplate and, now, a reputation.

These days it’s difficult to imagine any vintage Gibson Les Paul being a tough sell, but there was a time when 1960 ’bursts were considered less desirable than the ’58s and ’59s of legend—even though Clapton played a ’60 cherry sunburst in his Bluesbreakers days. Such was the case in the mid 1990s, when the family of a local musician who was the original owner of one of these guitars walked into Rumble Seat Music’s original Ithaca, New York, store with this column’s featured instrument.
