What we say:

G&L’s Tribute Series are an excellent value division of guitars and basses built in the Far East. Using the same models styles and designs as the USA-made G&L models, these innovative guitars bear all the hallmarks and trademarks fo their creator, Leo Fender.

The ASAT is of course G&L’s take on the famous T-style guitar, designed by Leo Fender. Upon returning to his earlier creation, he tweaked and upgraded elements, resulting in the ASAT.

This ASAT Classic is a Bluesboy semi-hollow model, with an alnico neck position humbucker accompanying the customary single coil unit at the bridge. This single coil is actually an MFD model, designed by Leo and built in California!

So, that lovely semi-hollow body is made with Swamp Ash! This is always a real treat, since this tonewood helps enliven the guitar’s tone and add a pleasingly resonant edge. The f-holed hollow only emphasises this further!

A Medium C neck profile is used here and feels reassuringly substantial in the hand without being clubby. 22 medium jumbo frets on a 9” radius fingerboard make for a versatile playing surface.

G&L’s redesigned bridge offers more mass and individual brass saddles to focus and translate more energy from the strings to the electronics, resulting in a bold sound with bite and sustain.

This guitar works really well in a variety of genres, playing both choppy rhythm and confident leads. It also looks great in its Natural finish here with a contrasting Tortoise pickguard. We are very impressed!
