Overview

The Tribute ASCARI GTS Electric Guitar was inspired by a recently uncovered drawing of a prototype done three decades ago by G&L co-founder George Fullerton. The design represented Leo Fender's vision for G&L's first 24.75" scal guitar with three tuners to a side. 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.

Although its DNA is full of rock guitar history, it breaks new ground for G&L: it has a set neck, a Leo-inspired headstock with three tuners to a side, and a 24.75" scale to put it squarely on the classic side of the rock'n'roll stage.

Add in a TonePros tailpiece and coil-tapping humbuckers specially designed by Gagon, and you have a gorgeous, high-performance rock guitar that's simultaneously strikingly new and steeped in rock guitar history. Case sold separately.

      This a great guitar for the price. I have had mine for a couple of years and enjoy it a lot. I play it just as much as my Gibson and Paul Reed Smith guitars.

        Comments about G&L Tribute ASCARI GTS Electric Guitar:

        I absolutely love this guitar! This is my first G&L and I'm glad I jumped on the sale and picked this up. Beautiful finish and flame maple veneer. This guitar feels great, much like an SG. Setup was almost perfext out of the box with only minor tweaking required. The pickups are wound very hot, so I did have to lower them to get my desired tone. No regrets purchasing this guitar. I'll probably upgrade the tuning machines, pickup switch, and push-pull tone pot down the road, but as-is this guitar plays, feels, and sounds great. If you're looking for a great guitar with a feel between an SG and a Strat, and the great tone and crunch of humbuckers, get this guitar.

            Comments about G&L Tribute ASCARI GTS Electric Guitar:

            As a novice player I did not really know what to expect. I tried some inexpensive electric guitars in the past and was disappointed. However, the moderately priced G&L Tribute Ascari GTS is great. It's easy to play, has wonderful tone and after having it checked by a GC luthier, it required no setup. More experienced players tried it out while I was at GC and were pleased with the quality, craftsmanship, sound, and ease of playing it.

            Not bad for the money

            Comments about G&L Tribute ASCARI GTS Electric Guitar:

            I love Les Pauls, but I was looking for something different. This fit the bill, and I purchased it when it was on sale. It's a decent guitar for the money; thin neck, easy upper fret access, coil tapping versatility, comfortable to play... It doesn't have the heft of a Les Paul (both in terms of weight and sound), but then again it's not a Les Paul. I ultimately decided that it wasn't for me, but it was a decent guitar and I'm glad that I tried it out.
