Based on George Lynch’s original custom design, the GL-KAMI4 is being offered in an affordable LTD version for the first time. It delivers the well-known “Kamikaze” graphic finish in screaming neon colors, and adds the distinctive sawtooth-shaped headstock that’s made this version of the Kamikaze coveted. The GL KAMI-4 features an alder body, bolt-on maple neck with maple fingerboard, a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge, and a combination of a new Seymour Duncan Signature George Lynch “Hunter” pickup in the bridge with an ESP Designed single-coil pickup in the neck position for a wide variety of scary tones.
SEYMOUR DUNCAN SIGNATURE GEORGE LYNCH “THE HUNTER”
Specifically designed to George’s exacting specs for a powerful and dynamic response, providing the harmonics, dimension, and firepower that George’s style demands.
The only thing that could ever overshadow George Lynch’s incredible technique is his amazing sense of guitar tone. George has gotten so many great tones over the years (and has used such an eclectic collection of gear) that chasing after his tonal recipe can seem mysterious and daunting. But despite that vast array of sounds, which go from pristine cleans to fire-breathing leads, when we talk about the classic “Lynch Tone,” we’re generally talking about one thing: a huge, mean rock tone, with full lows, a ferocious top end, and a complexity that is alive with harmonics. If you had to choose one pickup to capture that signature sound, you should do what George does: Go with the George Lynch Hunter pickup. With its high output, ceramic magnets, and custom wind, the Hunter brings all the muscle for power chords and easy access to harmonic squeals, while remaining transparent enough for the “not quite clean but not exactly dirty” tones that he is so great at.
The Hunter comes with the Lynch Tone seal of approval. It’s not easy to play like George, but it just got easier to nail his sound.
