G&L Rampage Tribute Series Jerry Cantrell Signature Electric Guitar –

$899.99

Rampage: Jerry Cantrell’s Original Weapon

Back in the ’80s, Jerry Cantrell bought his first G&L Rampage while working at a Dallas music store, and he still rocks ‘em hard today. The Rampage Jerry Cantrell takes all that he loved about his favorite early Rampages and adds mods to dial it in even more.

Rampage shares the originals Soft Maple body, sleek Hard Rock Maple neck with Ebony fingerboard and Kahler vibrato. While the early Rampage had locking nut designed by Leo Fender, Jerry modded his necks to fit a beefier Floyd Rose locking nut. The Rampage Jerry Cantrell has the shelf for the Floyd Rose nut engineered in for greater stability and sustain. What’s more, the Kahler vibrato is slightly recessed into the body, allowing lower action than those early Rampages. Then there’s the pickup. Early Rampages came equipped with a Schaller humbucker, but the Tribute Series Rampage Jerry Cantrell model has a potent Paul Gagon-designed humbucker which pairs spectacularly with the Soft Maple body.

G&L Guitars

Leo Fender† passed away on a rainy day in March 1991, an event that shook the music world: the father of modern music was gone. It was on that very day that Leo had completed his last prototype, testament to his passion for improving his instruments. “G&L Guitars and Basses are the best instruments I have ever made.” – Leo Fender Why did Leo feel this way? Because he had endowed G&Ls with tone and technology breakthroughs that players still rave about. For example:
  • The Dual-Fulcrum Vibrato that’s super-smooth and more stable.
  • The Saddle-Lock Bridge that transfers more resonance to the guitar body.
  • MFD pickups which are uniquely clear, warm, expressive and wide-range.
  • The PTB tone system that offers treble and bass cut for more versatility.
Leo wanted to be sure that G&L would shine even brighter when he was gone. He knew that he must look after his people, so that they would feel free to build on his legacy of quality and innovation. His wife shared this commitment, and she chose Leo’s friend John C. McLaren to assume ownership of G&L and to expand and develop it in a way that would please Leo. John shared Leo’s view of G&L as a maker of superb instruments, all lovingly crafted for discerning musicians. So do John’s sons, Dave and Johnny McLaren. That’s why now more than ever, G&Ls are widely praised for their superb quality and tone. And thanks to a special blend of traditional craftsmanship and pioneering technology, G&L instruments deliver unsurpassed performance and value. G&L continues to make instruments with dedication and great skill in Leo’s historic factory on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California – The Birthplace of the Bolt-On. And inspiration is always close at hand, as Leo’s private workshop, the center of his creative universe, remains as it was on his last day and has been visited by luminaries from throughout the music world. “When my brother Johnny and I were young, Leo was always kind to us and we learned so much from him. Today, we and our team are committed to preserving the memory and rich legacy of Leo Fender – and this means refining and innovating guitars and basses as Leo would have demanded. As my father said shortly after Leo’s passing, ‘We always want to feel that Leo Fender would be proud of today’s G&L.’” –Dave McLaren, President
