Overview

The G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy is a factory-modded version of Leo's final word on the traditional single-cutaway bolt-on guitar, and the semi-hollow version takes it further with G&L's distinctive twin voice chambers and f-hole added to a beautiful swamp ash body. Like its solid-body stablemate, this axe delivers a well-balanced pairing of a G&L alnico humbucker designed by Paul Gagon and a single-coil G&L Magnetic Field Design bridge pickup designed by Leo Fender.

Framed in a classic boxed-steel bridge, the single-coil MFD bridge pickup delivers crisp attack with complex harmonics while individual brass saddles offer modern levels of intonation refinement. Flip to the neck ˜bucker and you'll discover all the charismatic warmth you could ask for. Put ˜em together and you'll find yourself immersed in exploring the limits of this guitar's surprising versatility. What's more, the semi-hollow body softens the midrange attack, accentuating the low and high harmonics.

Case sold separately.

    Comments about G&L Tribute ASAT Classic Bluesboy Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

    I'm an older guy who's been playing since the early '70's. Never had a Tele, but I couldn't ignore all of the great players who used them. I really like thin lines, but I've never liked the stying of the Fender versions. Mainly, the controls are not close enough the the strings to use them while playing, and the pick guards a not to my liking. G&L has put the controls where I want them, and the thing looks nicer. The sound is what I was looking for, and after a good set up it plays very well. My only concern is the cheap, plastic nut. Other less expensive makes put a better one one their guitars, why can't G&L?

      Comments about G&L Tribute ASAT Classic Bluesboy Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

      I became a professional musician and guitarist many years ago when I was 17. In my early 20's I bought a 72 Tele Thinline which I loved - unfortunately I traded it, not knowing it was something special. I've wanted another ever since - that plus the fact that this was Leo Fender's last design made me interested. My expectations were high when I ordered it and the minute I plugged this sweetie in it surpassed them. Fabulous sound, feel, tone both live and recording. This is a keeper! Bless you Leo!

      Bluesboy Tribute a HIT!

      By Ricky

      from Mobile,AL

      Comments about G&L Tribute ASAT Classic Bluesboy Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

      This is my first G&L, and this tribute model is not my last! In my mind I had thought of these as just another cheap guitar, not so. While an overseas produced guitar, unlike other USA based guitar companies, they do have some USA parts, but the guitar itself is great out of the box! Took to a gig as is, performed as well as my USA made guitars, in fact, I played this guitar all night. I actually like the sound of the pickups compared to other guitar I have similar to this one! The tuners do not feel like cheap asian parts, very smooth and tuning was a breeze. the neck feels good in the hand, the frets are large enough for some serious bending without fretting out and not dragging on the fretboard, as I have several brands of guitars the gloss on the neck doesn?t bother me, but if you like a satin feel, scotch bright can fix that. The ash body is so resonate you can feel air movement from the f-hole, the finish is very nice, the grain in the wood is very much pleasing to the eye. The bridge is as it should be, perfect, easy to adjust, if the need arises, and has that vintage look and feel. The controls a little stiff, but are smooth and accurate. If you are a tele fan you will love this guitar, if you are starting out you will love this guitar. If you want an american made guitar but don?t have the coin, you will love this guitar. From Jazz to Classic Rock to blues, this guitar can do it all! To name this guitar ?Classic? or ?Bluesboy? seems to me inaccurate, because the versatility of this guitar goes way beyond what the name implies,

      An ASAT with a twist

      By Jordan Lansdowne

      from Youngstown Ohio

      Comments about G&L Tribute ASAT Classic Bluesboy Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

      G&L makes great stuff, no doubt. I've owned Tributes as well as USA versions of their guitars and both of them live up to the name very well. This guitar in particular is no exception. The sound is richer than you would expect from any Tele or ASAT due to it's true semi hollow body and chambering. I once owned a Fender thinline and it sounded kind of tinny compared to this one. The tone is not that of your traditional telecaster. The neck pickup is thick, kind of what you would expect from a Les Paul, but a little brighter. The neck pickup can get you close to a typical tele but with the semi hollow body it gives it a different characteristic. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the frets were very jagged and made the guitar hard to play at first, but I had a luthier take care of that and now it's about perfect.
