MGR/John Loundagin's review"G and L ASAT Classic Semi-Hollow"

G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy Semi-hollow
$575 on eBay. Actually, this was my first maple neck guitar, and it is now my favorite axe.

TONE: Anytime I a/b this guitar to just about anything, it always wins. No matter what I plug into: Line 6, Marshall, Fender, my Carr Hammerhead, this guitar produces clear, rich tones--even on the bridge-only setting; it's never tinny or fatiquing. Chords are always clear, never any mud. I think that it'll sound even better as it ages. But even today, I'm able to get many great classic tones, especially the British blues thing.
LOOKS: Ironically, the appearence of this guitar is often overlooked. The finish is 1st rate and very durable. I play my guitar almost every day, and there is absolutely no evidence of the translucent paint job wearing away.
PLAYABILITY: I'm a blues player, so I bend a lot. The 6100 Dunlop frets are refreshing (not found on many other guitars). I love the 7.25" radius and the 1 5/8" nut: very fast!

It's hard to say. I probably would like more precise tuners, but these will suffice. It's not like I'm about to change them. I bought mine used, so I had to adjust the set up, and I often experiment with different gauge strings, so many adjustments are necessary. Finally, the jack. Oh that jack. It can lose its connectivity over time. Mine is okay, but I have to loop the cord around the strap. If you ever need to change one though, make sure you visit the guitarsbyleo.com website for the procedure.

I have had about 15 different ASATs, and they all have been well put together. This is a player's guitar made by guys who love to play. I really like to wack the strings and bend and pull a lot; this guitar takes it all in stride. I never feel like I have to baby it. It also stays in tune pretty good.

G&L's are my favorite guitars. I have been playing for almost 30 years, and these guitars offer the right combination of playability, prestige, looks, tone, and pride of ownership. Sure, I would like to have a stable of Tom Andersons, Don Groshes, and Suhrs, but I just don't have that kind of money. I really doubt the G&L gives up much to those makes anyway. If you've never tried one, do yourself a favor and check one out. NOTE: I'm not afiliated with anyone at G&L, nor do I have any financial interest in the company. I just love the guitars!

G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy Semi-hollow
MODEL States, manufactures Fullerton, with old machines for rusted bolts, built by Leo Fender itself. Finally, this is what the tourist Leaflets said.

It's a Telecaster guitar type. Leo Fender, Fender APRS leaving (in 1965), and MusicMan (1979), again with G & L MODELS his greatest and amliore. The AST is the logical continuation of the Fender Telecaster from home. The MODEL ASAT Classic range is the most ... classic of all, ie. dot of a violin close to the Fender Telecaster and invested the same in terms of sound mind and play Bluesboy The MODEL is distinguished by a humbucker configuration (handle) + simple (bridge) - it also exists in Fender Telecaster with the HS.

The humbucker (humbucker) is a Seymour Duncan Seth Lover SH-55N, one of the first products by Seymour Duncan. But its pretty vintage prcis enough to paste the spirit and versatility Telecaster. The simplest is a Magnetic Field Design single coil in the G & L.

The violin is vritablement excellent, as all models of G & L US I've experienced (relatively) and I have heard (relatively large). MODEL for this in particular, the table is frne (swamp ash), two blocks and the handle stocky, and the key in Saddle or rosewood, as desired. My AST is a key Rabl. The MODEL Semi-Hollow is caractrise by half-body: the body possde rsonnances two rooms linked with a oue ('f-hole') or not, my AST poss of this oue. Twenty-two boxes, enjoyable round of the frets, mechanical oil bath G & L, in short, a packaging trs classic Telecaster guitar type.

I can only set the maximum here, because this configuration mic / instrument making is a personal search, and ASAT Semi-hollow Bluesboy yrpond perfectly. Incredible quality at all levels! I do not see what could blame him ... but not like the Telecaster guitar type.


Who says two pickups, three position slecteur said. The Telecaster, and the AST is a guitar that is simple to use. No double splittable, sub-intermdiaire position, etc.. A good point on the AST slecteur: positions are lgrement corners but smooth, it's enjoyable trs use (playing).

The neck is fabulous. I can not say this is o, but the feeling of the game are excellent (as long as the instrument is well rgl!). Obviously, the form can dplaire: it is a little flatter than the Fender Telecaster, but not by much ... Access in acute is that of a Telecaster, well, no more, it's not a neck through RG!

This is a semi-hollow: it is (relatively) lgre. I do not complain about dsaccordage or other problem like that. Like any self-respecting Telecaster guitar, the frieze lgrement. But it matris and adjustment of action at the bridge gives a good margin of maneuver (to a zero-curling tzoung unbearable). No dead spots (note that dies prmaturment) for my part, on the contrary, the sustain is amazing, once well RULES! The semi-hollow is assurment for something.

In short, a guitar that makes it easy to play and let the sensitivity of the musician speak. Exactly what I was looking for.


The MODEL Bluesboy has a single and a double, so it's versatility more than the characters who caractrise instrument.

Just my opinion trs is good, not the best in the world, but is respectable for a MODEL home-made guitar US Arequipa. APRS test, it seemed increasingly clear that the simple microphones Fender Telecaster Deluxe and Arequipa. In part-cons, it has a little less of characters: it colors the sound less, the crunch is more neat. Personally, it suits me: I play the amp prfre for a.

Twice, as I said, the Seymour Duncan Seth Lover SH-55N. I think this is a good choice, but that will not please everyone. He directs the guitar tones to warm and round, forget the rhythmic mtal;) srement It is called the vintage sound, but there again, the amp just Derri re can make a difference ... Seymour Duncan's site offers some samples.

The position intermdiaire shuffled twice (not the splitter and simple, and is the most INTERESTED, IMHO. The sound is downright warm, natural crunch possde a lightweight but Dfine strangely well. I had never heard a hand, it adds the original instrument. An original sound and mat time, with a combination based on single / double not forced ment homogne is really a Russianness.

I play in many styles Different. The Bluesboy accept almost anything that does not require a cold and its edge (quoique. .. some amps work wonders). She's really versatile trs, more than a Telecaster now, and more than a vintage Telecaster (which are research for their characters). Some say this is it lacks characters: I think it has a plutt characters diffrent the Fender Telecaster, and that trs well as a. Everything is not always comparable in the sense of the same: if you eyeing cot AST to find a Fender Telecaster equivalent, attention! And test costs, the clothes do not make the man here, even if the chapel remains the same.

Personally, I use mainly intermdiaire position - because I find the CHARACTERISTICS of the double, but the sound is more easily and finely altrable by the amplifier - and position micro acute simple - that cash anything and everything, its crystalline crunch, harmonics endless ... I do not change this configuration microphone!

The half-cash offer a natural reverb trs enjoyable (although sr trslgre from an effect, but even when significant). If you like Entran unplug a ringing sound trs. The semi-hollow lightweight gnre as a natural feedback can interfere, if one truly seeks. But you still want the same (for example, by centimtres plaant twenty of his amp, treble background ...) see as a possibility supplmentaire a game, and this is still an asset to this guitar simplistic at first glance!


I bought this guitar several months ago to now, eBay United States - a price dfiant any competition. She has over ten years, but is like new vritablement (Previous Owner 'is not a lot of the play). Mint. I waited several years (six) before changing guitar for the first time, so that I pass directly from one poor that the Pacifica 112, even if I possible time between my fingers on a lot of MODELS, the Squier Start the Les Paul Standard through the Deluxe Telecaster and Ibanez Ergodyne, etc.. As she rpond almost all my needs, I have no regrets or criticisms.

It is a clear research, both in terms of spcificits (config pickups, semi-hollow ...) as the guitar gnral (a relatively small brand / trs little known in France, will see nothing but houses Fender / Gibson, etc.). I am fully satisfied, the quality is excellent ... A point may be important is that I bought this guitar for a real guitar be my Premire APRS for years on a MODEL certainly excellent, but between end; two without trying. If c'tait again, I do it again, but this is not a good thing forcment. We see more and more G & L MODELS stores franais (at least for the range between / midrange Tribute): if such MODEL tempt you, try a dnicher, there may spcificits sduire or otherwise dplaire.

It is clear that the report is frightening qualitprix: equivalent quality of violin, I can only confirm the need to type in the Fender custom shop to find the same thing, simply because I don ' have not seen high-end Fender MODEL also treated. That said, this is not the crucial point forcment. First, the fades cart price in France (taxes, margins, pricing policies trademarks, etc.).. On the other hand, the final price does not face personal feeling on the instrument, and once again, an ASAT is quite diffrent a Telecaster Fender. As is often via the Fender G & L intrt to happen, it is important, I think, well prciser that.

I put 10, not because I think I found perfection, but because I know I've found perfection vis - vis what I wanted!

G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy Semi-hollow
See above ...

Mine is colored honeyburst, leaving beautifully veins appear beautiful swamp ash of bluesboy ...

Beautiful finish ...

Do not go out of tune ... Mechanics really fucking why ...

Compared to a US Strato, that not forgive, sorry for Fender but it hurts for them ...

Normal, G & L Leo Fender is also, but the top of his game, and with the spirit of love with its products maker ...

Finally, note that by ordering directly from G & L can almost change everything (in birdseye neck, body, mechanical, etc ...) It's Custom ... so as


Handle exceptional ... End like a Fender Start, but I do not know what's "it slips on like we want" ... In any case the handle as comfortable as I wanted at the moment ...
Access to acute and well as on a Telecaster
Super easy to use as a TV, three mic positions, one volume, one tone, and it's done ... Except that on this one, it sounds in all positions ...
With a half case, it is light (and at the same time we feel that it's solid)


Here we touch the field of dreams

I play mostly on the neck position, with the micro Seth Lover (I'm also so crazy that I just bought another scratch, with two of these-mounted microphones above)

It's hot, end on a good amp it really leaves the ass (like most who heard scratch), the sustain is not bad ... Blues in the fields up big rock (I play the Queens of the Stone Age, Pearl Jam, etc ... with) is perfect ... The feedback is never far away with the fat saturation, but easily control ...

These microphones are also excellent in the clear (for casseroles funky, perfect) and is very accurate ... Depending on the volume knob, going from light to crunch to OD ... Top

In terms of sound, it really reminds me of L-series Mike Mc Cready Pearl Jam, it sounds vintage ... It sings what;)

Tele bridge pickup type "twang" is not bad, but it's less, I use it sometimes to get out of the mix ... drier ... The two microphones go great together ...


This is my wonder, I do not sell, at least not against another guitar ... I've had a year and I can not believe that with age it will get even better ... Because here is simple, she stopped dead in my buying frenzy scratches ... In any case one thing is certain, she buries Fender
If I'm the fly in the subway, I try to buy exactly the same ... If I do not find it, I'll probably be inconsolable ...
I tried 20 before stopping on this one ... There were G & L (Comanche, S500, Legacy, Asat Classic) and Fender (tele 52, strato, strato deluxe 50th anniversary). Tried everything ... I have no hesitation ...
