AD: Michael James for G&L

LEO FENDER, President. And don't forget it.

I don’t think I’ve ever known a single thing about Michael James and the Michael James Band except from this G&L ad, taken from Guitar for the Practicing Musician, March 1985. And an internet search reveals numerous Michael James Bands. At any rate, this ’85 Michael James is displaying the Rampage, Superhawk and Invader models rockingly. How do you feel about the headline, “METAL WAVE ROCK?”



  1. Mike james was a bass player in several orange county bands over the years. Though he did play in some rock bands as I remember he played in a lot of country bands. He was a g&l employee working directly with leo for a number of years. When I saw this add I had to laugh. Mike was a friend of mine about 20 years ago when we both worked for gibson guitars. I believe mike is a sheriff deputy somewhere in arazona now days.
