tyson63's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" my best skyscraper that G & L!"

G&L Tribute ASAT Classic
G & L tribute asat classic sunburst made in indonesia.
My model has the particularity to have a rosewood fingerboard on a maple neck.
After information is collector because it should have a handle and a maple fingerboard ... (A letter from G & L informs me that my model is not for the European market normally after asked the seller ...)
okay, I keep it like that, at least it is not like the others!
The back of the handle is a high gloss "fat" who asked me a little time to adapt, but never sticks ...


Very pleasant to use, the frets are a little high, but certainly contribute to the power of his restored ...
on the other hand I have to make a little more effort left hand side, accustomed to a Cort aero 11 round super fast ... Doing sound casseroles, I took cramps!
the handle was a bit "dry" new, normal.
A simple lubrication oil of lemon and a few hours of play made it absolutely brilliant and very nice ...

Gets it easy to sound good? ...
Yes right away!


The sound itself is just great with mics (the same as us models), you can even adjust the height of each block individually ...
This is the first guitar that gave me satisfaction in the clear right now ...
First test in the clear on a fender deluxe 70, amazing!!
the sound palette is rich, powerful but clean bass, everything is very balanced and powerful sound is how to say, crystalline, slap it much stronger than strat ...
I also have a G1L tribute legacy, the difference in output volume in the same configuration is amazing!
So, used to play with the volume to the max, I discovered with this guitar the interest of the volume potentiometer with this guitar, so the nuances of sounds are important ...
ditto for the tone, very progressive, the knob ensures a tailored sound in the style of a very significant way ...
A true up the sound of this guitar, musicians friends are not income, "the cow, she slams strong level" ... suddenly every subtlety of the right hand is here perfectly restored, defects also play the coup ...
she has incredible sustain, in his slight crunch or distortion in its bluesy or gilmoore is that happiness ...


I was full of different guitars, I buy, I resell, etc ...
this one is on I would keep a real favorite, and the finishes are just perfect, absolutely NOTHING wrong ...
I play the guitar since 1983, this is the first time a guitar effect that makes me!

paul.hardy.37819's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" better than a fender tele"

G&L Tribute ASAT Classic
country corrée
handle maple varnish
22 frets very accessible
2 microphones manufactured in the USA TV style
One volume and one tone, nothing special, it is a télécatser

color could be less cheap ...


handle VERY nice, I play an Ibanez with a handle near the highway and the relatively thick paint can slip very easily. Compared to a fender handle is "fine"

I pierced it is more stable than a fender, otherwise it is a TV and less burdensome

the head is not so ugly as AC, actually it's not a fender head round, but we made it and in the end I prefer the head g & l


It's the sound that really surprised me. I was with a view to buy a fender but after testing the baja and the classic series, I fell in love with the clean sound but crunchy with a very good stability (micro us) with effects as the distortion. One can easily get a fat and heavy and has a clean sound crunchy.

I play in vox amp and I love the asat used with delay, chorus and overdrive.

I play mainly old school rock and indie, and this guitar is made for that and for all, it has a very good range of sound.


do not buy Mexican, buy g & l
I recently but it is amazing
as I said I tried almost all the Mexican range of fender and I am left with the asat. Afterwords it is essential to test if you are looking for a TV.

What I like most is its pleasant side to play, its work, and 22 frets. After the color could be more cream but each his own :)

I still feel like stealing the store so the value for money is good ^ ^ 500 euros with the cover to tie a fender over 900 euros, not better

I recommende electric guitar in 1st or 2 nd or triple ^ ^

Samuel 62150's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" My first Telecaster"

G&L Tribute ASAT Classic
I have the color model Bluesboy with chipped red pickguard, the key in Ebony.
To see the rest of the features on Thomann for example.

The model that I like I look perfectly level.


The handle is really cool, the strings are for me at the right distance from the handle which is very nice (matter of taste). I use it mainly as a rhythm guitar but she is quick to play some solos, this is a telecaster what is more normal. The nickel finish is really apart from a slight vibration under the pickguard when I play without an amp I hear a little what bothers me but I will heal!


On my Vox AC 50cP here sounds super clear sound. I take for example Where is my mind Pixies and rhythmic sounds really great. Arpeggio it is better to select a microphone (depending on course preferences). Saturated rock is also very good but obviously should not ask her out riffs of heavy metal. I found the sound that is me using my '78 MXR distortion on the clean channel of my Vox.


This is my first telecaster. I tried a Fender Baja in store for me to realize the playability of a telecaster with far only strat. Fender Baja has a fairly robust handle but very enjoyable to play.
I have a Fender Blacktop Strat Fender so I know but being a fan of Alice in Chains Jerry Cantrell and therefore, I was intrigued by the brand G & L fairly common in the trade.
Finally I found this model to a crazy price, € 300 almost new (about leboncoin). The dealer was a manager of a music store that closed. It was one of the last guitars he has returned so it is separated for a bite of bread. I seized the opportunity.

surfy's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" My Telecaster"

G&L Tribute ASAT Classic
It's a Telecaster made in Indonesia.
Body "Swamp ash", maple neck, rosewood fingerboard.
The two pickups are G & L made in United States
3 position knob, tone, volume.

Very good wood, microphones US, precise adjustments and simple ...
Note that unlike the Fender Telecaster "vintage", there are 6 bridges (one for each string) and not 3.

The factory was good but of course I have a little more suited to my taste.


Aesthetically, it's a Telecaster with a superb color Walnut (Walnut) makes it clearly shows the wood (which I like very much). The color is slightly red, she is gorgeous with its black pickguard.

The finish is satin, that is, we hit a smooth wood without feeling "plastic" of some polyurethane finish too strong. I like the feel of wood in my hand. on the other hand bear she wear? Time will tell.

Everything is really well done. The lifts are super quality (no detuning untimely despite the bends), absolutely no manufacturing defect (it was one of my fears, but no complaints). The knobs, selector and input jack are rugged and "oil bath". When you turn the knobs, there are nuances, not like some models where we spend all for nothing.

It weighs his weight with his body full of ash, but it is perfectly balanced. Access to acute care is free.
The handle is nice profile "C". I am not 10 as freight may have their edges a little smoother, but it's really to quibble ...


So I see you come: Is it "twank"??
Well my friends, it really twank. A true Telecaster sound. I have not much compared, but it has great sound.

I am amazed by the quality of the pickups: the neck pickup is deep and powerful, the micro acute twank wish. the two combined work wonders.
I guess we can do even more defined, but in this price range is really quite amazing.

I never tire of this deep and rich. The three positions are used, which is rare.

I played on a cube Laney 12R (15w tube), marriage is very appropriate because the Laney respects the sound of the guitar (Note that I sold my Vox AC4TV too loud, too fat, too abrupt with this guitar)


I use it for a month, and this is my telecaster. Unable to pay me an American, I compared long hesitated a lot and I do not really regret my choice.
It's real beautiful wood, microphones US of incredible quality. I think to compete and do better, it may be necessary to put three times the price, but I really do not see why I would do that.

To all those who seek a Telecaster in € 500, I recommend it.
