Identifying Stickers

It features a unique circle-and-square pattern, a blue-dressed pinup sticker, and worn “Rock” stickers from an early Alice in Chains supporter. Other identifying marks include band stickers for Soundgarden and Son of Man.

MoPOP Museum

The guitar was recently displayed at Seattle’s MoPOP Museum. Cantrell explained its significance, stating: “I bought that in 1985. That guitar has been on everything I’ve ever recorded, pretty much… I tried for decades to wreck it and it still exists.”

Sadly, structural issues have forced Cantrell to mainly use reissue models of the guitar on tour in recent years. G&L released a Jerry Cantrell signature Rampage in 2009 and an ultra-limited edition closer to the ‘Blue Dress’ design.

Reward

Cantrell is offering a reward for the guitar’s safe return. If you have seen the guitar or have any information, please get in touch with info@velvethammer.net.

G&L has also offered to build Cantrell a new guitar to help ease the loss.
