OVERVIEW

The Ascari: born of history, entirely new.

G&L’s done something special: We’ve created an instrument that’s steeped in guitar history yet strikingly new - The Ascari, the newest member of G&L’s Tribute Series. It was inspired by a recently uncovered prototype drawing done three decades ago by G&L co-founder George Fullerton, representing Leo Fender’s vision for G&L’s first 24¾” scale, three-tuners-to-a-side guitar. It was designed jointly by G&L’s longtime VP of engineering, Paul Gagon, and his close friend and former collaborator, Grover Jackson, founder of Jackson Guitars. Its DNA is full of rock guitar history. Yet it breaks new ground for G&L: it has a set neck, a Leo-inspired headstock with three tuners to a side, and a 24-¾” scale to put it squarely on the classic side of the rock’n’roll stage. Add in a Tone-Pros tailpiece and tappable humbuckers specially designed by Gagon right here on Fender Avenue, and you have a gorgeous, high-performance rock guitar that’s simultaneously strikingly new and steeped in rock guitar history.

Case sold separately.

      Comments about G&L Tribute Ascari GTS Electric Guitar:

      This is a great guitar. It plays well, sounds good, and looks great. Like all new guitars, at last the ones I bought, in needs a little setup and tweaking but not a lot. The fit and finish are excellent. I love this guitar.

        Comments about G&L Tribute Ascari GTS Electric Guitar:

        A beautiful well made instrument - After my local luthier checked it out on went the Elixir strings and he lowered the action a bit, the only problem was setting the intonation of the G-string required moving the adjuster to the back end. The instrument has amazing tone. Expect to get years of use from this guitar.

          Comments about G&L Tribute Ascari GTS Electric Guitar:

          I have buyers remorse, so when this guitar arrived, I was ready to ship it back before I even opened it. I am so glad I opened it to see not only a visually pleasing but beautifully playing instrument. I couldn't be happier with this model and design. I got it with TDOTD, I purchased an LTD two months prior, but this model really caught my eye. Love the way it feels and plays. I played for four hours without even thinking about it . A great piece of craftsmanship.
