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've owned USA made G&L's for 20 years. My 11 year old wanted to start playing and wanted one. This import Tribute model came up around his birthday at a Stupid Deal of the Day, I figured it was worth a shot.

      The build quality is astonishingly good. Action out of the box was good. Strumming acoustically she sings. Plugged in the P90's sound the same as my USA Korina Collection ASAT. What surprised me was the sustain. My son played a clean finger style number to a large auditorium with this instrument and the sound saturated the hall with clear notes and subtle under tones. Overdriven, the G&L P90's give you all the crunch and fuzz synonymous with this pick up. The G&L Tribute Ascari GT90 offers no excuses and no compromises. Quality on par or better than a PRS SE we looked at. Value for the money, none better.

        Comments about G&L Tribute ASCARI GT90 Electric Guitar:

        The sound is just what I was looking for, fatter and sharper than a my Strat, but not a jazzy sounding as a Les Paul. It is the perfect blend of both guitars. Workmanship is top notch. The guitar is very comfortable to play. I highly recommend this guitar. I would like to see it in some optional colors too.

          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.
