Overview

One look and you know this ASAT is killer. It's fired up with twin chrome-covered alnico humbuckers - designed by G&L's Paul Gagon - mounted in a bound, flame maple-topped mahogany body (swamp ash on Butterscotch Blonde). 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 Gagon-designed pickups are split via a push/pull tone pot to offer everything from jangly single-coil tones to gritty blues to scorching leads. Case sold separately.

I just bought the cherry sunburst and it looks stunning! The flamed maple top is to die for ! The looks and feel rivals my US Tele and it complements my cherry sunburst Les Paul marvelously. The carved top/humbuckers combination is ideal. Even unplugged the guitar sounds great. I mostly play hard rock and classic rock with it and with the proper amp setting it sounds great ! Lots of sustain and in my opinion good definition from these pups.

The split coil option makes this instrument a very versatile one. When splitting the bridge pick up there is a significant and normal volume drop. It does not equal the brightness and tone my tele bridge pickup (in my case Alnico II) but still does the trick if called upon. This is perfect for a little venue where you don't have room to bring many guitars.

The only downfall was that the action was pretty high out from the box. Nothing a little setup won't fix.

This guitar is a great asset to any rig and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a great versatile instrument without breaking the bank. Did I mentioned that it looks stunning… ;)

I had the same experience as "weekend warrior." The high E string kept falling off the fretboard when using any vibrato or bending of the string. The guitar is also noticeably neck-heavy, and you have to compensate for that while playing. Guitar needed a set up, and I ran into a couple of frets that were high around the 11 - 13th fret area, so I couldn't get the strings as low as I really wanted. Tone in the coil-split mode was muddy. I am a long term, regular customer of MF, and enjoy their products. Sadly, this one had to be returned.... Would not recommend this guitar.

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

      I have been buying guitars since the 80,s and would never had considered a telecaster. Just never liked them. But my brother-in-law has been shopping for one so when this came up on blowout I bought it for him. I have now had this guitar for two weeks and he is not getting this guitar. It plays and sounds better than most guitars in the high end range. I love it.

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

        First off, this is a GC/MF exclusive model, according to the official GuitarsByLeo forum.

        I'd consider this guitar a modern take on the Telecaster. It's closer to Fender or Gibson in character than all the shredder guitars shaped like Teles.

        The carved body is comfortable and light. I wanted a Tele shape with humbuckers, and this fits that niche perfectly. Finish on the neck is smooth, edges are rolled nicely, although it's a bit too glossy on the back. This guitar is neck-heavy, but nowhere near the level of an SG.

        The pickups are surprisingly good – clear and full-bodied with medium output, unlike many stock humbuckers which I find to be overly dark or harsh. Single coil tones are good, but I still prefer to use my Strat or Tele for that.

        Overall a fantastic guitar and a great option if you want something different than a Fender, but still somewhat similar.

        Great set up from the factory, although a bit of fret out at the high E 2-4 frets.

        I wanted a Telecaster shape, Fender scale with humbuckers and this delivered on all counts.

          I mainly play at home as a hobby and for relaxation. When I plugged it in for the first time it just felt right, played nice and fit my hand perfectly. Perfect for what I do. I play classic rock and rock blues for the most part.

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

            Bought this on the SDOD and WOW very impressed at the workmanship sound and overall play-ability. Been playing my fist G&L which is a G&L S-500 for over 20 years now, madly in love with that Axe but the darn thing is 20 lbs so i needed something lighter and G&L was what I was looking for. Even though these are mass produced unlike my s-500 was they still play and sound great, moreover for the low $$$ can't go wrong.

              Came out the box ready to go. Added some lemon oil to the neck and brought the life back it. Started playing and it was really nice. sounds great and fits my hand size great. The workmanship is great and attention was given to detail. I enjoyed playing it the first time, and will enjoy playing it as long as I own it.

              After owning several Gibsons, Fenders, Silvertones, ect. this is my new favorite. The only issue is I had to adjust the truss rod due to string buzz. This was the very first time I've adjusted a truss rod but with an allen wrench and a video from youtube, EVEN I WAS ABLE TO DO IT! Even with the truss rod issue that seems kinda common it's SO WORTH THE MONEY. It is well made with good finishes. Mine was made in Indonesia and has the quality of a Gibby made right there in Tenn.
