OVERVIEW

Gorgeous tonewoods, bolt-on maple neck and G&L pickups.

One look and you know this ASAT is killer. It's fired up with twin chrome-covered alnico humbuckers - designed by G&L's Paul Gagon - mounted in a bound, flame maple-topped mahogany body (swamp ash on Butterscotch Blonde). This new axe takes the iconic ASAT further into heavy territory while retaining the feel and playability that have made the ASAT a perennial favorite among players.

The ASAT Deluxe Carved Top sports an easy-playing 1-5/8" nut-width neck, a classic C-shaped back and 12" fingerboard radius to make deep bends a breeze. Holding it down on the other end is a G&L Saddle Lock bridge designed by Leo Fender for comfort and singing sustain. The Gagon-designed pickups are split via a push/pull tone pot to offer everything from jangly single-coil tones to gritty blues to scorching leads. Case sold separately.

I just bought the cherry sunburst and it looks stunning! The flamed maple top is to die for ! The looks and feel rivals my US Tele and it complements my cherry sunburst Les Paul marvelously. The carved top/humbuckers combination is ideal. Even unplugged the guitar sounds great. I mostly play hard rock and classic rock with it and with the proper amp setting it sounds great ! Lots of sustain and in my opinion good definition from these pups.

The split coil option makes this instrument a very versatile one. When splitting the bridge pick up there is a significant and normal volume drop. It does not equal the brightness and tone my tele bridge pickup (in my case Alnico II) but still does the trick if called upon. This is perfect for a little venue where you don't have room to bring many guitars.

The only downfall was that the action was pretty high out from the box. Nothing a little setup won't fix.

This guitar is a great asset to any rig and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a great versatile instrument without breaking the bank. Did I mentioned that it looks stunning… ;)

I had the same experience as "weekend warrior." The high E string kept falling off the fretboard when using any vibrato or bending of the string. The guitar is also noticeably neck-heavy, and you have to compensate for that while playing. Guitar needed a set up, and I ran into a couple of frets that were high around the 11 - 13th fret area, so I couldn't get the strings as low as I really wanted. Tone in the coil-split mode was muddy. I am a long term, regular customer of MF, and enjoy their products. Sadly, this one had to be returned.... Would not recommend this guitar.

      Comments about G&L Tribute ASAT Deluxe Carved Top Electric Guitar:

      I bought this guitar on a Stupid Deal Sale. The Cherry Sunburst finish lured me to pull the trigger on buying it. When it arrived I was blown away. It looks much better than the images on the screen. Then I started to play. Right out of the box it was set up. The neck and fretboard play almost effortlessly. The carved maple top and the belly dish on the back make it a comfortable guitar to play. The tones that you can get from this G&L vary from Les Paul like humbucker to Tele like single coil. If you want it to sound exactly like a Les Paul, get a Les Paul. If you want it to sound exactly like a Tele, get a Tele. I already have a Les Paul and a Telecaster. This guitar sounds just a little different. It gives me another choice when searching for the right tone for a song. I'm impressed with it.

              Comments about G&L Tribute ASAT Deluxe Carved Top Electric Guitar:

              If you like the feel of a Telecaster, but want the sound of an SG, this might be the guitar for you. I love Fender Telecasters, because I sit while playing gigs and the guitar is well balanced for the way I sit and play. I also love the sound of the Tele. The G&L, with twin humbuckers just sounds fatter and more like a Gibson. The back of the G&L is carved (like a Strat) and is more comfortable than a regular Fender Tele. I purchased a "blemished" guitar for a considerable savings....and was pleasantly surprised when I could not find a blemish anywhere. what I did find, and what is quite possibly the cause for the discount, was that the action was not adjusted as well as other guitars I've purchased from MF. A little tweaking, and it's fine now. Overall, I'm very satisfied. Mine is the Cherry Sunburst color....which is really neat.

                    And the service at Musicians Friend was outstanding!
                    Had an issue with a crack in the body. They made it so easy to exchange. Thanks!

                    This guitar played great, right out of the box, the neck was smooth, no rough frets. I wished that I would have bought two of them, cause my wife loves it too, and she is a professional musician. I don't mind it being made in Indonesia, cause the craftsmanship is awesome. Musician friend should do this deal again.
