G&L

A simple-to-use tone machine with a beautiful finish and perfectly-matched P-90-type pickups.

The Ascari GTS broke new ground for G&L, and the team of Paul Gagon and Grover Jackson are back with a new flavor that’ll take you back without being another throwback.

The Ascari GT-90 takes all the carefully designed architecture from the GTS and dials up P-90 tone that’s better than ever. Typical P-90-equipped guitars suffer an imbalance between the neck and bridge pickups, forcing you to struggle with dual volume controls to find a balance. Not with the GT-90. Gagon has wound countless P-90 type pickups and used his deep understanding of pickup engineering to create an amazingly well-matched set. With a single volume control, a world of harmonically rich P-90 tone is finally accessible with ease.

Such a guitar should have a classic look, and the Ascari GT-90 delivers with a rich, old-school Tobacco Sunburst finish over its crème-bound mahogany body and neck, reinforced by classic crème pickup covers, gold speed knobs and understated dot inlay. This is the P-90 guitar you’ve dreamed of: superbly balanced tone in an incredibly well-balanced, lightweight instrument.

Case sold separately.

      Comments about G&L Tribute ASCARI GT90 Electric Guitar:

      I really like this guitar. For me, it is unlike anything I have played (p-90, mahogany). I find this guitar attractive, comfortable, and satisfying to play. It purrs and growls, it has snap and snarl, and able to be warm and mellow.

              I'm very happy with this guitar, especially at the STOD price. The only "flaw" when it arrived was a loose tone knob that fell off. I just had to spread the wings on the post slightly to fix it.

                Great price as a STOTD. High quality. Great attention to detail at every level. Stays in tune. Great tone from the P-90ish pickups. Love the sound with my Princeton Reverb.

                      The craftsmanship on this guitar is top notch.It is definitely worthy enough to bear George and Leo's initials. The P-90s are thick and chunky. The neck and fret board are comfortable and the playability is awesome. This guitar is as good as one costing five times as much.

                        I bought this guitar because I wanted something with P90 pickups, and I liked the appearance of the guitar. I also wanted a guitar with a 24 3/4" scale length. This guitar was well worth the price as it was a return, like new condition. It was received just like new and I am very happy with this purchase. Very easy to play and no fret buzz whatsoever. It's a beauty and a definite keeper that sounds and plays real nice.

                            Despite being shipped between countries, only one string was half a step out of tune, the rest were fine. I was astounded by how silky smooth the back of the neck felt.
                            Packaging was much more than I expected too; a long paper snake that I named Archebald.
                            After I purchased this on a snap decision while I was at work, I was starting to wonder what I got myself into, seems I've never played a G&L instrument, and at the time I've never owned a Fender
                            The finish was flawless all over, I'm able to reach the high frets without any issue.
                            The fret ends were smooth and the frets themselves felt smooth as well, nice and polished too.
                            The headstock inlay is perfectly fit, no flaws there whatsoever, the little things like that make the difference for me.
                            Once I got it home and plugged it into my Marshall on the clean channel, it felt like smooth milk was flowing from my speakers. I was initially contemplating swapping them out for Nantucket 90's from Bare Knuckle, but I'm so so so happy with these pickups, I don't think I'll do any modifications, which is something coming from myself seems I've made mods to all of my guitars.
