The G Series represents a logical evolution of the term "vintage". It is modern yet retains the familiar characteristics of the classic double-cutaway design in an aesthetically tasteful manner. This double-cutaway collection includes a wide variety of options and features to best meet a player's specific needs and requirements.
Double Cutaway: The G220 features a double cutaway body for classic styling, comfort, and easy access to the higher register of the fretboard.
EMG SRO OC1 Pickup: Utilizing Alnico V magnets in passive format, this powerful Humbucker provides a smoother and more natural tone than its active counterpart with exceptional versatility to cover a wide variety of musical genres and styles.
H-S-S Pickup Configuration: This popular pickup configuration with the 5-way switch provides a wide variety of sounds to cover virtually any musical style. With the middle and neck pickups alone or in combination, the sounds are not only ideal for rhythm playing but for distinctive single-coil lead sounds.
Coil-Tap (Push-Pull Tone Knob): The push-pull tone knob potentiometer allows for the EMG humbucker’s dual coils to be split into single-coil, providing a brighter and glassier sound ideal for genres such such as pop, funk and certain styles of jazz.
Neck-Body Joint Beveled Heel: Unlike the square-cut heel of traditional bolt-on guitars, the heel on the G-Series guitars are beveled round for easier and smoother access to the frets in the high register of the fingerboard.
Satin Matte Finish Neck: A clean look as well as no drag on your fingers due to the smooth satin finish means more comfort, increased speed and enhanced playability.
Starting on 2 January 2017, you will receive a certificate of origin from us with every purchase to document the fact that the palisander or bubinga wood used in your instrument comes from legal harvesting and trade.
Please take notice that the German customs authorities need up to 8 business-days to prepare all necessary export documents for us. This will delay the total shipping time a little.
The reason is the following:
At the World Wildlife Conference in Johannesburg in September 2016, all palisander and bubinga species were added to the so-called CITES Appendix II. The inclusion in CITES II means that starting on 2 January 2017 trade with these wood species will not be prohibited entirely but will be subject to restrictions. This will involve a lot of additional bookkeeping for producers, wholesalers, retailers, and guitar makers, but not for you.
What do the new trade restrictions mean for musicians and owners of instruments?
No additional verification documents are necessary for ownership as such.
Travel inside the EU:
No special precautions are necessary for travel inside the EU.
Travel to non-EU countries:
Instruments made of the wood species in question may be taken to non-EU countries without verification documents as long as the weight of the wood protected by CITES II in all musical instruments together is less than 10 KG. The weight of transport containers and accessories is not included.
A verification document is recommended for resale. As a rule, this is the commercial invoice (which you receive from us) or a certificate confirming that the instrument was made using legal CITES II wood. If you do not have such documentation, the customs officials or the competent regional authorities may confiscate the products if they are being offered for private sale. If you have kept your invoices for instruments purchased before 2 January 2017 or can provide other clear evidence (e.g., inventory in your tax return, import documents...) that the instruments were purchased before 2 January 2017, you should keep these documents in a safe place and leave a copy with the instruments. No further measures are necessary for the time being.
