Purchased my G&L Rampage Tribute from MF used. This is the second used item that I've purchased from them (first was a Vox AC30VR). MF listed it 'Condition/Level 2 - Very Good' with dings on the rear of the neck at the second fret and some paint chipping on the headstock. You don't notice these imperfections unless you're specifically looking for them. Saved a little money and got, what appears to be, a new axe. Kudos to MF again on the used equipment ratings and descriptions!

I was somewhat disappointed in the 'ivory' color of the Rampage Tribute body. I was expecting something of an off-white color as seen in the photographs. When my wife saw it, she referred to it as a 'buttercream.' It is a little more yellow than I expected but I can deal with that.

Out of the box, my G&L Rampage Tribute had a lot of fret buzz. I haven't had a professional set up yet. Raising the action myself would be a pain because you have to loosen the strings to get to the screw on the Kahler. The neck itself is nice. Has a nice slim/fast feel. The radius hasn't seemed to effect my playing too much (other than possibly contributing to the fret buzz). I put thicker strings on and it hasn't seemed to help.

The pickup is decent. As it only has a bridge humbucker it can sound a little harsh sometimes. I haven't played with any EQ settings on my effects pedals yet. The humbucker works great with overdrive/distortion and you can get a great Cantrell/AIC sound out of it along with a wah pedal. The volume knob seems smooth as well.

The Kahler tremolo is okay. It's my first time using a locking tremolo so I can't compare it to any others. The tuners and locking nut are nice however, the tuning does slip a little after string bends (I haven't really used the bar).

Overall, I think it's a decent guitar for the price paid. Once it's set up professionally, I think I'll like how it plays. I do think it is limited in uses since it only has a bridge humbucker and a volume knob. It is definitely better than shelling out $2,000 on the US made Rampage. Mine is just missing a few stickers (which will be printed eventually).

I have several G&L Rampages and Invaders from the 80's. I was stoked to hear about the Cantrell Rampage. I ordered the Tribute version since I have had several other Korean model guitars from Fender and Peavey that were quite good...and the price is about 1/3 the cost of the USA model.I ordered a black Rampage and the fret ends were ground too flat like a ramp and were uneven the length of the fretboard. The tremolo would also not adjust since it was missing a screw in the brass block. I sent the black one back and received a white replacement. Fret ends looked good; however, frets unlevel...oily looking spots on fretboard...and also missing screw in the Chinese Kahler tremolo. Rampage was barely playable and had chips of white paint coming off neck pocket and around tremolo route.The sound of the pickup in the black Rampage was good; however, the pickup in the white Rampage was thin. I returned both for refund. Very poor quality control on these Rampages. I was very disappointed.

    Comments about G&L Tribute Series Rampage Jerry Cantrell Signature Electric Guitar:

    I was suprized at the quality. Especially the ebony fretboard. The pick-up sounds amazing considering it's a factory on an inport. It looks flimsy but it's far from that in sound and durablity. One would be hard set to find a guitat from this price range sounding this good and having such find workmanship. American manufacturer beware if this the new standard of foreign import.

    Best Guitar I Owned: Hands Down

    By Jeff Smith

    from Osaka, Japan

    Comments about G&L Tribute Series Rampage Jerry Cantrell Signature Electric Guitar:

    Had to sell this and all my axes as 2011 was not good to me financially....but landed back on my feet and am rebuying what I lost (LOL). Jerry's axe is well-made, sounds fantastic, and I cannot fault the Import version for being low-grade in the least! You cannot go wrong with this guitar. The best guitar I have owned, to be perfectly honest, for my needs. Highly recommended.I plan to go through MF for a US version to see the quality difference. The import was THAT good, so call me crazy but I love US made guitars! Get one: a no-brainer.
    Made in Indonesia; soft-maple body; hard-maple neck. Jerry Cantrell spec'd Alnico V pickup; one volume knob, no tone. Kahler XTrem 4800 (Or maybe 4300?) Not US made parts, but excellent die-cast tuners and other hardware. Bare bones guitar, but excellently made: not for every player, but a rocker wanting no extras will love it. Ivory color. Kahler isn't for everyone, but I liked it and it stayed in tune.
    For the price, this is why GW Magazine gave this a Platinum Award: remarkable build and quality. I cannot fault the makers: G&L's overseas market made me want a US all the more, because the quality was fantastic. The Kahler was nice despite that it isn't US-made, still a well made piece of metal. The pickup sounded fantastic in my Mesa-Boogie Mk V combo: gritty and dark. It worked very well with the wood. I was very impressed with the build.
    Again, bravo G&L: a beginner could have this and be set for life, it is so well-priced and made. The US version costs almost literally three times as much, but this could have cost more, given the deluxe gig bag as well.

    love it!

    By Jay O

    from New Jersey

    Comments about G&L Tribute Series Rampage Jerry Cantrell Signature Electric Guitar:

    this thing rocks. again, a lot of people had tuning issues mainly with the G string, but that seems to be because of the floyd rose nut not clamping tight enough on the G because the D is so thick..try the trick of flipping it around on there, or puitting tin foil on top of the G to even it out a bit. works well! i'm divebombing and my G is staying in tune quite well! this guitar is awesome, sounds amazing, and is my new favorite to play
    1 custom wound alnico v pickup, 1 volume, kahler 4300 xtrem, floyd rose locking nut. simple, but works amazingly!
    this thing is a BEAST! it's heavy, the neck is wide, and it doesn't feel like i'm going to break it! can really shred on it and rip on that kahler and it sounds so good. the pickup sounds AWESOME; it's voiced so much differently than my seymour duncan JB's in my parker and my fat strat (i like this one more on my DSL100)
    totally worth it, feels like an american made guitar

    Don't let Kahler scare you away!

    By dave morris

    from Boston Mass.

    Comments about G&L Tribute Series Rampage Jerry Cantrell Signature Electric Guitar:

    This is a great guitar! I noticed some people had trouble keeping the ones they bought tuned. I got on the G&L forum for help, and got it! Chances are you might have problems keeping the G string in tune with note bends. Because the D string is so much thicker than the G string, it won't allow the locking nut to hold the G string on bends. A piece of folded tin foil over the top of the G sting to build up the space will fix this, and you won't have to overtighten the screw for it to hold, it really works! The Kahler tremolo has a great feel, the neck is amazing, and the factory pickup will not need an upgrade! I love this guitar, thanks for bringing them back Jerry. Please have the Floyd Rose center locking nut modified to fix the problem that I mentioned, so that people can enjoy this guitar with no fuss. Oh, Kahler, you were less than helpful, please fix that!

    Amazing!

    Comments about G&L Tribute Series Rampage Jerry Cantrell Signature Electric Guitar:

    I picked this up after getting a deal from MF on President's Day. For the money, I'm not sure if there is a better guitar out there. I had it set up by a local luthier, and it's been solid ever since. It has great sustain and note definition. I may still replace the pick up to get away from that "stratty" tone. Other than that, this guitar is amazing! Buy it now!

    Must Have

    By Travis

    from McConnellsburg

    Comments about G&L Tribute Series Rampage Jerry Cantrell Signature Electric Guitar:

    I am a guitar collector. I have over 40 guitars, I must say I own everything from vintage Fenders, to classic Gibsons. The Jerry Cantrell G&L guitar is the guitar I would recommend to any guitar player. The price is spot on, the sound is so tight, the sustain is just unreal. If you really know what to listen for you will here it from this guitar. Also, if you are just starting out this guitar comes set up. The intonation is perfect. If you do not know what intonation is...learn. Just tuning your guitar is not enough...Take my professional advice "Must Have".

    Amazing guitar spoiled by Kahler

    By Snarling Dogs Fan

    from Chicago,IL

    Comments about G&L Tribute Series Rampage Jerry Cantrell Signature Electric Guitar:

    The guitar is amazing-Nice color(Ivory) great shape body and fast neck with ebony fretboard.Jerry's Humbucker is mind blowing.Believe me you don't need to change the pickup! But what really will change your mood for playing is the tremolo-Kahler 4300-X trem.That thing is horrible-won't stay in tune even for sec.I called Kahler and G&L and they blaming on each other and I'm stuck in-between.It may be spring issue(not strong enough)it may be contact under the cam.?!?!Now if you're not whammy player you can block the tremolo with screw but it's also painful 'cause the tremolo is dropped into the body(Jerry's specs) so you really have no access to it.So remove the tremolo from the body,block it ,put it back or save all this by buying guitar with fixed bridge.I'm so sorry Jerry,Kahler spoiled your amazing guitar!

    A true rock guitar

    By Tyler B

    from pikeville, ky

    Comments about G&L Tribute Series Rampage Jerry Cantrell Signature Electric Guitar:

    This is an awesome guitar at a pretty good price. It's heavier than a strat. The gig bag is really nice. The neck feels great, wide but flat and the frets are perfect. I really like the pickup. No need to change it. It's got a good growl to it and picks up every string no matter how distorted your tone is. The Kahler is different from what I'm used to but easy to get comfortable with. The action was more than 2mm at the 17th fret on each string so I had to lower them a little but it was super easy. I was surprised they didn't include an owner's manual at least for the tremolo system, especially for those of us not used to these types. I put Dunlop strap locks on it but noticed the builders screwed the strap holders in too much and some minor paint chips happened when I removed the screws but no big deal to me. Overall, I recommend this guitar to everybody not just AIC or JC fans. I like the idea of only having a volume knob because too many options/knobs leave me constantly dissatisfied with tone, etc. This is by far my favorite guitar and I've owned many over the past 10 years.

    Solid Guitar At A Reasonable Cost

    Comments about G&L Tribute Series Rampage Jerry Cantrell Signature Electric Guitar:

    This is a bare bones, solidly built, quality guitar at a very reasonable cost. The guitar feels and plays great and has a fairly slim, nice satin neck and quality components including a custom wound Jerry Cantrell Alnico V humbucker pickup and a Kahler tremolo with a Floyd Rose locking nut that holds tune well. If you are an Alice in Chains/Jerry Cantell fan, this guitar is a must have along with Jerry's Signature Dunlop Crybaby Wah. It's a killer combination that every fan should have matched up with a good Marshall tube amp and a Ibanez TubeScreamer. Enough said.
