Another G&L Superstrat and the 2 Schaller humbucker version of the Rampage at that. With a separate tone pot for each pickup to boot. The pickup selector is a small 3-way toggle-switch.  Otherwise it has a nice contoured swamp ash body, hard-rock maple pre-BBE #3 neck with 12” radius maple or ebony fingerboard and 1¾” nut width, a choice not available on the Rampage. One also had the choice between a “Krome” or “Black Krome” (for an additional $60) Kahler™ 2320 flat mount fine-tuner floating vibrato for a silvery chrome or black chrome appearance, respectively. It has been out of production since late-1991. Like the Rampage, but much later, this model also became associated with Jerry Cantrell and was reintroduced in 2011.
