Heeding repeated requests from customers, GJ2 Guitars has drawn inspiration from the birth of the Blues for its latest guitar model, the Hellhound.
The GJ2 Hellhound takes its name from one of the most legendary songs by pioneering bluesman Robert Johnson, “Hellhound On My Trail,” recorded in 1937. The Hellhound guitar is built of basswood, with swamp ash or sugar pine available as options. Equipped with Habanero pickups as standard, the Hellhound includes a traditional-style bridge pickup with a TD91 at the neck; or traditional-style bridge pickup with two single coils. (Additional options will be available.)
GJ2 co-founder Jon Gold explains the genesis of the Hellhound: “Grover Jackson started out building guitars by listening first to the needs and demands of players. At GJ2, we have always heeded our customers. The Hellhound model was created in response to countless requests for this traditional style of guitar.”
As with all GJ2 guitars, the Hellhound is made at our facility in Southern California. It features a compound-radius fingerboard, with materials and workmanship of the highest quality throughout. A broad palette of color options is also available.
