G&L Tribute ASAT Special
Excellent, Like New Condition +! A real Beauty!!
G&L ASAT Special Tribute Series in about as close to mint as you can get. Don't want to say it's in New condition because there might be a tiny indentation somewhere I haven't seen.
Awesome Finish on Superb grain pattern. This guitar has a special upgrade I have done on all my guitars with nut widths under 42 mm(1 5/8"). My guitar tech who happens to be a wizard at making just about any guitar play flawlessly with perfect action and intonation (He has worked closely with Bill Frisell and is the designer/creator/builder of Bill's go to Fuzz pedal) put a new Bone nut in with the string spacing widened slightly with plenty of room still between E Strings and edge of fretboard. This instantly made the guitar play and feel like it has a wider neck.... my fingers don't get cramped up in the lower positions, and it just all around, with the set up is the smoothest most comfortable playing electric you will run across, and the least expensive even after the set up and nut. I don't know How G&L does it!! Superb sounding G&L USA pick ups and electronics.
The ASAT Special, as the model became known, features jumbo single-coil Magnetic Field Design™ pickups, each with a narrow bobbin aperture for a coil which is shallow yet wide. In this regard, an MFD™ jumbo single coil is similar to a P-90 or Jazzmaster® pickup, yet the MFD principle provides a punchier bottom end and brighter top end sparkling with harmonics. Leo further departed with the past with the addition of his innovative Saddle-Lock™ bridge which transfers string energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument. The result is one of the most versatile guitars ever, serving up ballsy twang to searing blues to smooth jazz tones. What’s more, this ASAT Special is offered in a traditionally G&L Swamp Ash body for maximum attack.
