GJ2 Guitars Unveils the Concorde and Shredder
Concorde

The guitars are the first in Grover Jackson's Inspiration Series

Laguna Hills, CA (May 14, 2015) -- At the recent Frankfurt Musik Messe, GJ2 Guitars unveiled their new “Inspiration Series”. The new line of guitars has been developed as a direct response to requests from players who want to enjoy the benefit of Grover Jackson’s designs and commitment to quality, tone, and playability at a more accessible price. The first offerings in what will become a full range are the “Concorde” and “Shredder” models.

The Concorde represents Grover’s latest incarnation of one of his most iconic designs and features neck-through-body construction, bound rosewood fingerboard, and two “Habanero Special” humbucking pickups. It is available with a Floyd Rose or Tone Pros fixed bridge. The Concorde comes in a fitted hard case.


Shredder

The Shredder is currently the only guitar in the GJ2 lineup with 24 frets and a 24 3/4” scale length. The “Inspiration” version features all of the main specifications of its U.S.-made counterpart, including a bolt-on maple neck, bound rosewood fingerboard and Floyd Rose bridge. Like the Concorde, it comes equipped with two “Habanero Special” humbucking pickups. The Shredder also comes with a high-quality heavily padded gig bag.

Both the Concorde and Shredder models will be available beginning August 2015. U.S. prices start at $799 MAP.

Bach’s BWV 995 Sarabande is a special piece of music. It’s sparse, delicate, and deceptively complex even though it looks simple on the page! There are some approaches, informed by Baroque performance practices, that will open your ears to discovering your own musicality within Bach’s music. The piece doesn’t require advanced right-hand classical guitar technique. You can play with a combination of pick and fingers, or fingerstyle. This lesson is not so much about technique, but about the subtle nuances that bring the written note to life. With a little knowledge of Baroque performance practice, you can lend your own interpretation to Bach’s masterpiece.
