All six instruments feature 2 piece swamp ash bodies, maple necks with rosewood fingerboards, NOS Baltic Amber pickguards (where applicable) and introduces G&L’s newly-developed Nearly Naked™, Honey Ale ultra-thin finish. The G&L 2012 Special Collection is proudly made in the USA at G&L’s factory on Fender Ave. in Fullerton, California.

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.
