    G&L Tribute ASAT ClassicPublished on 12/19/21 at 17:05
    I did a swap with a Yama sa1000 which I never used. I wasn’t sure about it, being a bit of a Tele lover, having a couple which I use, but it took me no more than 5 minutes hooked up to my THR Yamaha, to realise this was no Fender clone, but a seriously good guitar, which “happened to look like a Tele. A bit like if you let a computer and a wind tunnel create a car, they will all look the same, so if you create a perfectly functional guitar, which is as at home sitting with or standing, which is balanced, comfortable and easy to play, it’s probably going to look like a Strat or a Tele.

    I did a swap with a Yama sa1000 which I never used. I wasn’t sure about it, being a bit of a Tele lover, having a couple which I use, but it took me no more than 5 minutes hooked up to my THR Yamaha, to realise this was no Fender clone, but a seriously good guitar, which “happened to look like a Tele. A bit like if you let a computer and a wind tunnel create a car, they will all look the same, so if you create a perfectly functional guitar, which is as at home sitting with or standing, which is balanced, comfortable and easy to play, it’s probably going to look like a Strat or a Tele. It’s why 80% of my collection are these, and not Gibson. Gibson’s look classy, but are a constant battle to get comfortable with, and much as I’d love to have one, have always ended up trading them out as they just frustrate.
    So my point is, it looks like a Tele because Leo decided that worked decades ago, but it really is so much more. Think of custom shop detail, because that is where it sits. It is a stunning piece of work which I never tire of holding. It plays like butter, and the electrics are flawless. It does do the Tele thing beautifully despite what some say. It cuts and spanks like any Tele. Just back off the gain a tad, and there it is!
    The bonus though, is if you wind it up tp 10, then your are in p90 or even near Humbucker territory, and that with the fact there is a lot of quality timber resonating away under your arm, means you can have a real animal in the tone stakes if you want it.
    I haven’t gigged my Teles since owning my Asat, and can’t imagine ever going back, No way will I sell them, as they still have a place, but my tool of choice now, is definitely my G&L.

    The back of the handle is a high gloss "fat" who asked me a little time to adapt, but never sticks ...

    UTILIZATION

    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!

    SOUNDS

    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 ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    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!

    better than a fender tele

    UTILIZATION

    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

    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

    SOUNDS

    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.

    OVERALL OPINION

    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 ^ ^

    My first Telecaster

    G&L Tribute ASAT ClassicPublished on 06/14/13 at 05:11
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    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.

    UTILIZATION

    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!

    SOUNDS

    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.

    OVERALL OPINION

    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.

    My Telecaster

    G&L Tribute ASAT ClassicPublished on 12/12/11 at 14:02
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    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.

    UTILIZATION

    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.

    UTILIZATION

    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 ...

    SOUNDS

    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)

    OVERALL OPINION

    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.

    The Case of the Century!

    It is a model manufactured in Asia.
    The wood body is gently called "swamp ash.
    According to the texture, it would seem to be one of the many varieties of Eucalyptus found (yet!) Worldwide.
    The handle is made of Canadian maple and maple key also reported, but speckled.
    Handle fairly large and round, which will contribute to comfort and sustain, frets a bit high, Gibson style today.

    Handle fairly large and round, which will contribute to comfort and sustain, frets a bit high, Gibson style today.
    Plate so brown tortoise shell, chrome hardware, Grover mechanical style.
    This is a model "Telecaster" which scrupulously respects the proportions of the original instrument, except the head which GL is a bit larger. However, some details differ, which are of importance:
    The bridge has 6 adjustable saddles brass (the doc says "Brass"), which should contribute significantly to the incredible sustain of this guitar. Also the plate that receives the microphone horse drew on the back and sides, about an inch, as on the old Telecaster receiving a nice chrome cover that fits on the plate, which hastened to take off to play more comfortably. Always it is that this greater amount of metal may contribute also to the sound, comfort and support for the right hand.

    UTILIZATION

    The setting is correct. Strings a bit high for my taste.
    The handle is very nice satin finish.
    Weight, scale, access to acute: Everything is consistent with the "Tele", so perfect.
    (With the weight of an ash model, anyway)
    To get the sound?
    There are 2 microphones, an inverter 3 position, volume and tone progressive and effective ... What else?

    SOUNDS

    Sounds about ... Then there is the GREAT CLASS!
    Who would have dreamed of a model sold in the 500 Euros with sounds as rich and singing?
    It is both warm and crystal clear. All positions are typed and interesting. Playing a bit of Volumes and Tones are offered a palette ranging from Jazz, Blues, to country and even rock really punchy, through the good old Keith riffs, without asking any questions. Everything sounds obvious. Fingers as a pick. This is not a skyscraper among others, is a real instrument, and has a real personality.
    Frankly, my old Telecaster like a cantankerous old bones next. I'm embarrassed for her.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this guitar for 3 weeks without a break (and others in recent decades). I can only rarely to play on another - I hope it will pass, anyway! ? . It is totally versatile, while in single coils.

    The price - quality ratio? - Incredible!

    I would say (do not care, I have already) it is too expensive, it lends credibility to the de-.
    We know that a happy guitarist is often a guitarist who has really hurt the wallet.
    Anyone looking for a very good instrument could miss this deal because their price does not seem quite "serious." But who is "serious", frankly. Is it serious to 3000 Euros and maybe more in a skyscraper artificially aged factory with full document authenticators, which resembles in all respects with the guitar almost next door charged 3 times less expensive ... (But hey, that's another story: it's called marketing!)

    There remains the possibility that I fell on the rare bird, which, in the series, all parameters had converged to ring of HELL! Must see.
    Go try one, you'll see.
