The AXL USA Bulldog packs a lot of punch into an unbelievably affordable high-end package. AXL have started with a solid mahogany slab body and one-piece set neck, and outfitted it with top-shelf components. The secret weapon is the “Bite Switch,” a push-pull pot that bypasses the tone potentiometer to give a biting mainline sound, increasing the treble response for shimmer and snarl. The AXL USA Bulldog is a true rock machine that delivers a powerful bark AND a powerful bite.
One of the more intriguing new models to emanate from Gibson in the mid 1970s, the L6S was favored by Carlos Santana and Rich Williams of Kansas, along with several other notable players of the day, and quickly proved its power born from a marriage of Gibson tradition and a sleek, efficient, modern design ethos. To bring all that toneful goodness and succulent playability back to the table, Gibson USA introduces the newly reissued L6S, a performance tool that’s still primed to carry today’s rock, blues, and fusion guitarist wherever he or she wants to go.
