scotfusion's review"G&L ASAT Tribute Trans-Blk, Carved Top, Alnico Pickups, Coil tap."

G&L Tribute ASAT Deluxe Carved Top
Made in Indonesia, The pickups are made at the The G&L factory on Fender Avenue. Bridge pickup is a coil tap. Has 2 Alnico humbuckers, and a rosewood neck.

UTILIZATION

The access to the last fret is nice, no dead spots, great sustain with saddle-lock bridge. Love the carved top.

SOUNDS

Peavey Vypyr 3; Peavey Revalver 4 amp modeler. The 6505 and Budda are some of my favorite sounds.

OVERALL OPINION

The guitar actually feels better than the American Tele I sold. I've owned an American Tele, a Custom PRS and a Custom guitar. After owning this for a few months, I really like this guitar.

Thierry255's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good sound for cheap!"

G&L Tribute ASAT Deluxe Carved Top
G & L Tribute series (made in Indonesia, I think).
2 humbuckers, and split with a push-pull on the tone knob. 3-way switch.
One knob general tone and volume (the change is gradual knobs)

UTILIZATION

Rosewood nice, weight is really not very important, access to the treble is pretty good. The guitar is well balanced, weight and level playing position, no complaints.
The purchase (I got it secondhand), there was a small cut in rosewood, down the neck, which was very easily "plugged" by my luthier. Finally, I had my saddle which was precisely because I resize the frisouille in some places the handle (it seems that it is very common on guitars from the factory).
I was able to get a good sound after switching to my luthier, who has set me these little problems and set the hair guitar (shares and microphones).

Note that I never use adjustment "single coil" because if I take a guitar with humbuckers is not to switch to the single :), as the sound is good, no worries, we still hear a slight decrease in volume when the microphones are splits.

Finally, regarding the knobs (volume and overall tone), it is much more convenient than other similar models, for which there is a tone and volume by micro ... And yes, not practical when you play at an intermediate position to play with the volume knob ...

SOUNDS

My first opinion was rather average by testing starting this guitar, bought it because I found a great price and I love the look!
I was looking for a guitar approaching my '72 Tele Deluxe U.S., in terms of sound (and possibly also the look) in order to rotate with it and leave a little my old ;)
I use this guitar on a Rivera Chubster 40 with od - distortion - fuzz + delay - phaser - chorus.
The pickups are well balanced, the bridge pickup is crystalline is a slight bit aggressive, the center position is the one I prefer, crystal (it is so good: D) but also with a lot of roundness (and if slamming I dare say) brought by the humbucker. I am not using the neck pickup coupled with my fuzz (sort of Fuzz Factory) because I think it lacks a definition of very light hair (it's really to be fussy).
The output level of the microphone is rather "standard" I would say (again, well balanced), compared to my old Telecaster that goes very quickly "crunch".

OVERALL OPINION

Used for about 6 months, I find myself using it almost as much as my Deluxe.
I like the look (I have black), I have not tried other models because listening to some videos on Youtube (there is really not much!), J ' enjoyed his grain, and that given the different opinions on G & L guitars I did not take a lot of risks ... I jumped at the chance when one of these models has been sold on Le Bon Coin. Busted in a secondhand is rather rare I think :)
This guitar is a great alternative to someone who would look a look or sound similar to Deluxe TV, but much cheaper, with better pickups (the Wide Range reissue).
Honestly, hard to beat at the value for money! Even new price, I buy!
When you see the last few years the quality of Fender models "entry level" in these rates there is not always a good pick .... , I do not think I took too many risks, and I'm not disappointed (on the contrary!)
In the words of the pub, given the quality, "not enough my dear son": D

TheJeff666's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" typed, versatile rock, much better than fender"

G&L Tribute ASAT Deluxe Carved Top
made in Indonesia it seems, microphones and fittings U.S., can be assembled U.S..
Swamp ash body
table carved flamed maple
neck and maple fingerboard (radius 9 ")
easel G & L U.S. superb
microphones Fullerton Magnetic Field (favorite!!)
A wonderful achievement. it's been several years that I spotted these models (Asat Special) U.S. models or Tribute, I tried a lot before making my choice. Nothing to complain about in terms of violin, neck telecaster great (if you like that type of handle, which is my case), well above the fender entry-level or mid-range (I have several .... ) shrink perfect nitro lacquer beautiful (the picture does not do him homage.) In short, a great guitar at a very affordable price (as it is between 400 and 500 € new).
I bought it new in store fun for me to compare the fifty guitars present (all lines combined), it was clearly in the top of the basket.

UTILIZATION

As stated above, the handle is a treat if you like telecasters. it is not light, but it is not a heavyweight either, very well balanced. for access to the treble is a telecaster, not a yamaha ...
When to get a good sound, well it is simple, try these pickups Fullerton Magnetic Field to understand. it is a single coil with a good level of output, it is between a microphone and a Jazzmaster P90, very precise and dynamic, powerful, but with a grain and its own personality that I love.
The first time I tried a Asat special, intrigued by these villains microphones, connected to a mesa its clear neutral EQ, I plated an agreement and I did "YOUAHHH!". the salesman came astonished took my guitar hands, and he planted a deal too. it has opened the eyes and he did: "oh well shit, I had not tried that the" he has not made me the guitar burst with force, and he missed a sale. ..

SOUNDS

I play everything, 60% in the clear, 30% crunch and 10% saturated. it comes out of every situation, from jazz to funk, crystalline arpeggios for clean sounds. Attention must be played with the volume of the microphones for clear sound, microphones send wood ... This allows a tube amp with a gain that heats nice to have full range of sounds knob ... about electronics is very effective and of good quality, volume and progressive tone, no play in the knobs ... suddenly, I who used to tinker my guitars (and some that are worth much more expensive ...), that's, I do not even touch it, it is perfect as is.
For crunch, well it is the foot, a P90 without too much fat, but grainy, with the dynamics and precision and more, and a good level of output, you can imagine ... sonic youth, dinosaur jr, my bloody valentine, and of course all the big record rock, blues and hard ...
For distortion and high gain, well I have not tried it yet, but considering the personality of microphones, good output level, accurate and high dynamic, even if they are single coil, I do not see why it would not work. edit after testing with the AMT and hast ss11b tung in soil ...

OVERALL OPINION

Quite a guitar for 500 €, which remonstrated with a multitude of guitars more upscale. nickel violin, achieving flawless, perfect electronics and pickups with a unique sound, a strong personality and versatility. It is always present in the mix (live or in the studio, with or without effects) without the need for treatment, and she also knows how to delete ... PERFECT!! with my vox 25 mounted knuckle bar, it's my guitar that is more accepting of the effects, it was nice to torture in all directions, phaser, flanger cleats, large delays and reverb, the guitar sound is always before the effects, even live, I love it ...
I have twelve guitars, very different and some upscale. I spotted the asat special for more than four years, I've tried full, tributes and the U.S., each time I took my foot ...
G & L is Greg Fullerton and Leo Fender, the creators of the electric guitar, a certain idea of ​​the violin and the U.S., and especially the evolution that has never known fender ...
As to whether I do it again this choice, well it's simple, I realized that I had no real telecaster, and last year I tried the classic asat comparing the fender, the comparison is cruel to fender and in less than six months, when I stopped my choice, I have a classic asat, probably a U.S. model ...

fleur de métal's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good guitar"

G&L Tribute ASAT Deluxe Carved Top
Made in Indonesia, then return to the U.S. for installation of mechanical and microphones
certified by a sticker on the back of the guitar.
Jumbo frets. The bends are all alone.
Volume and tone with push pull to split single microphones.

UTILIZATION

Round super nice, super satin slips it alone.
Access to acute bin as a Telecaster.
Sonnorités very versatile. Blues to hard rock.

SOUNDS

A must. Cristalin of single or double good fat sound of this guitar gods of fire and believe me I had a good scratch. That is mics its huge powerful well defined even simple. Single vintage sounds rather then that doubles distos say are more modern.

OVERALL OPINION

Superb guitar very nice finish, well worth some guitars costing twice as much. Therefore body weight accajou. Sustain terrible. Even emptiness is beautiful.
In short you will understand a very good guitar.
I'll take another model because of the tribute were fantastic guitars
for a price very democratic in terms of manufacturing quality.
