OVERVIEW

Deluxe carved top with dual P-90s and modern slim neck.

The G&L Tribute ASAT Deluxe Carved Top P-90 Electric Guitar is fired up with twin P-90s mounted in a bound, flame maple-topped mahogany body. 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 ASAT Deluxe Carved Top is just what many ASAT fans have been waiting for: an affordable, well-made alternative to the Fullerton-made G&L ASAT Deluxe. Case sold separately.

As a note: the Tribute line has mixed quality. Just like with any factory-made guitar, there are going to be major differences between the people that put the guitars together. Some may end up with a guitar that is absolutely gorgeous and a work of art and some may end up with an experience like another review, where the wood is mismatched and looks and/or plays terrible.

The one that I ordered ended up being AWESOME! There are some under-the-finish flaws, but getting this on sale and the fact that the fretwork and playability is incredible, especially for the price, made up for that. It sounds amazing and feels great in my (smaller) hands. If you're looking for quality above the standard fender - in terms of sound and playability - and something a little different, look no further.

I never played this guitar because as soon as I pulled it out of the box my reaction was; "oh no, this thing looks terrible". I have a G&L ASAT, black with humbuckers that is just beautiful and plays great. Was expecting the same, lusting for the P-90's and the beautiful yellowish color and cream colored pickups. The first thing that immediately gets your attention is the fact that the body is made from two pieces of wood with a very distinctive join line that isn't CLOSE to matching grains, and is in fact, not the same color. It looked like two pieces of dissimilar types of wood. The top part of the guitar was darker than the lower. Worse, the join line is evenly lined up with the top part of the fretboard/neck, and really draws attention to the deal. I really did not expect to see that from G&L, even their overseas products. Like I said, I love my other on, but it is painted black and no seam shows. Be warned if you buy an "open box". I just shipped it back on 1-13-16, so anything before that should be ok. MF was great as always about return.

        Comments about Tribute ASAT Deluxe Carved Top P-90 Electric Guitar:

        Starting with the good. The look of the guitar is unique and subtly eye catching. The bad: the intonation and playability of the guitars I ordered was horrible. The first one i received i ended up returning for a new one because of, what i stated above, terrible playability and intonation. The 2nd one i received not only didn't play well, but had body damage. If you are looking for a good guitar I wouldn't go with one of these unless you are going to buy it off of the shelf.

          Comments about G&L Tribute ASAT Deluxe Carved Top P-90 Electric Guitar:

          This guitar is a tremendous value. I was looking for an inexpensive guitar to play at gigs and outdoor venues instead of my expensive or vintage guitars to not to have to worry about them getting beaten up or lost. The P90s sound great, through my vintage Fender and Peavey amps, with or without effects. The guitar plays great, and by keeping it simple, the workmanship (albeit not a particularly sexy color) is as good or better than other guitars I tried that cost twice the price. A professional musician friend of mine, who has played with several household names, used it instead of his guitar recently and really liked it as well. Great job G&L!

          Comments about G&L Tribute ASAT Deluxe Carved Top P-90 Electric Guitar:

          Here I go with another Tele variation. Admittedly, the appearance of this one got to me from the beginning, with the carved top and p/u arrangement. Unfortunately, it weighs as much as a Les Paul, so I try to sit while playing this one. If I had to choose between the G & L Junior and this model, I'd go for the Junior, but I think it's like the argument; which is better, Ford or Chevy ?I'm lucky to have both.

                Comments about G&L Tribute ASAT Deluxe Carved Top P-90 Electric Guitar:

                This rates a 5 compared to the multitude of competitive guitars under the seven hundred fifty price point. This is a busy space for sure and choosing the right guitar is dizzying with the many choices and unlimited internet chatter and ratings. I compared G&L Indonesian ASATs to all Fender Strat and Tele, and Gibson ex-US made models and I feel the electronics, hardware, electronics, overall fit, appearance, and manufacturing quality is better. Honestly, I had decided to buy a G&L anyway, but the sale du jour on this model, made my choice a no-brainer. I would have bought a Junior, flat top or carved top G&L, with Humbuckers or P90s, but this model was too good a deal to pass up.

                Opening a shipping box from Indonesia to eye your new purchase for the first time is always a bit nerve wracking, but it was wrapped and packaged to survive even the worst UPS Gorilla toss. The fit and finish is that of a guitar costing one thousand. I would have picked this off the shelf if given the opportunity, that says much. The hardware, binding, controls, frets, neck, fingerboard ... are all set perfectly and the overall finish of the entire guitar is really quite amazing considering the price point.

                I play hard, I'm hard on my stuff, and I love to play a lot. That said, for me, I don't want to freak out should I scratch the body or head like I would freak out with a US Fender or Gibson costing fifteen hundred, I just want to play the thing, have it sound great, as well as be proud of how it looks. G&L for me, fits my bill.

                My rating is less for the P90 Carved Top I bought, but more for G&L Indonesian made Strat and Tele, because after handling many of them first hand, I can say that my overall review of my guitar holds true for G&L guitars overall.

                As promised, on time, and very helpful.

                  Took this guitar to my good friend to do an intonation and set up. The guitar set up perfectly and it sounds great. However, the volume pot was bad and G & L sent me a new one. Also, there is/was an error in the description of this guitar. IT IS NOT a mahogany/maple body. It is a solid ALDER body.

                  I was upset about this, but the guitar sounds great and I bought the guitar on the Fourth of July sale so it wasn't a deal breaker.

                  The workmanship and finish on the guitar I received was very good. Tuners are adequate, but I will probably put locking tuners on it at some point. The P90 pickups sound killer. Hooked up to a tube amp with some distortion and it sounds like heaven.

                    The G&L arrived and setup with .010 strings. I swapped them out for .009 I played it on my Yamaha THX practice apmp and was not very impressed. Last night I broke out my old Seymour Duncan amp. I was quite happy with the sound. This guitar has a wide range of tones and really has some growl. I would try it with my Fender Deville but you have to get it pretty loud to get into its sweet spot. However, from past experience, it will be brighter and overdrive will be tighter. I really enjoy the p90 sound!

                    The fit and finish is tight with no blemishes. The only thing I noticed is the recessed volume pot may be rubbing a little against the wood. Not an issue for me.

                      When I first open the box, I was amazed at the solid feel of the guitar. I plugged it in and I was expecting feedback (which I thought were grounding issues) as I had from another G&L ASAT (American) with P90s that I had previously purchased. After I had sent it back, I read that with P90s you're supposed to get some feedback. Well with this one, that's not the case! I think most of the negative reviews are cosmetic, well to each their own. I love the color variation and I'm very happy with the overall quality of this guitar. I think G&L did a great job with this one and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a tele with something different.
