G&L Tribute ASAT Special
Everything has been said before.


The handle is of extreme quality, nothing wrong with quality, feel and finish. Ergonomics is a telecaster.

Do you get a good sound easy? ...
Ben is where it all begins! twang of the bass frequencies, from clean to saturated admirable incisors. It gives me the best single coil I've ever owned. There is headroom on specific pots. Good management key. A TV that does not buzz so good mail.


They suitable for your style of music? country blues rock pop ... No concern

What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "fat ",....)? Wide range with great precision

With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play? JCM2000, Laney VC15


For how long have you been using it? 5 years
Did you try many other models before getting this one? heaps
What is your opinion about the value for the price? Huge! bury any telecaster I've tested ... surprisingly, I never had the opportunity to test the U.S. version ...
Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ... without hesitation. It is an instrument generally comfortable with the sound quality, comfort, my accuracy at a value price without comparison.

G&L Tribute ASAT Special
Ha! Jibb I bought mine at exactly the same sale of inventory in Gagné and Brother last year! Am at the same price $ 400 Canadian (270E).

So for the feature:
Korean (the country today is not a quality index. Korea and Japan are comparable to and sometimes guitar exelente supperior to Americans (as is sometimes the case with ESP or LTD are sometimes better than their equivalent ESP at a price 2 or 3 times less!))

"It is a bridge" G & L Saddle Lock "which is very resistant and it makes all the fine tuning of each string individually. The only downside that I found (it is a little fancy to me) is that there is join "Tribute" instead of "G & L". I would have preferred to G & L and it would not have been more complicated for the company.

-The guitar has a handle with a standard profile in C and it has 22 frets. It has a "radius" 9 "(22.86 cm) which makes it very comfortable and instinctive (perfect pouir barre chords). It is made of solid maple and has a maple fingerboard (like mine) or rosewood.

-The guitar is equipped with two large rectangular pickups called "G & L Magnetic Field Design high output single coil pickups" which, as their name suggests, have more output than other single coil. These pickups are manufactured in the USA as those of G & L U.S. and sell for $ 100 (70E) each!

"She has a volume knob, one tone knob (which is extremely effectively and that changes the sound duller than slamming very gradually) and a three position selector that allows juggled the two pickups (which produce d 'exellent sounds very different)

G&L Tribute ASAT Special
22 frets,
2 single coil pickups with high gain,
G & L bridge very nice, no clutch,
volume and tone pots of very good quality, we feel, when you turn the pots, a quality that inspires resistance,
unvarnished maple neck.

I am told that the mail is exactly the same as for the US models, and for the handle, except in regard to the finish (painted on the models US)


The handle is very cozy to use. Personally, I prefer the handle to the patent US models: it slides better ...
The guitar is balanced so that it ends up horizontally if you play standing with a strap. I was a little unbalanced at the beginning, I am a user of PRS and the handle is held slightly above the body of the guitar. I found it funny on the spot that the handle falls as much on the G & L, but it only lasted a few seconds ... it's not too unsettling anyway!
TUE sound! I compared two models with USD. These have a little more gain, quickly tested. I think maybe just because of the quality of the timber body and assembly of the handle that allow better sustain and a more uniform vibration from head to body. Otherwise, I do not see why I spit three times the price for a US ... the wear of years will tell me perhaps? For now, this sound is perfect for me!


I have more gain than my PRS (EC-22, not even an SE !...) for mids and high frequencies! The sound is very malleable, we feel greatly change the influence of micro and tone pot. We pass on deaf almost slamming a very jazz Nashville. The central location makes us very well the qualities of the two microphones, without losing momentum as some other guitars ...
I tested in stores on a super 50W tube amp ENGL ... Wow! Clean, dirty clean, distortion blues / dirty metal: everything goes well with this guitar ... on this amp! Peavy Delta Blues on my 210 it makes exactly the sound I was looking for. An ear clip which slammed into the bridge position, slamming a hot round in the neck position and a soft striking twice. That contrasts badly with my PRS (that's what I wanted) for the sound. I may have trouble playing the blues on my PRS now! .. It also contrasts a lot with my Peavy with microphones mounted Fender Delta Tone for gain and presence. (Again, this guitar was a good choice for me who wanted to change my sounds)


I've had three weeks and I have a lot of fun to play with. I temporarily abandoned my PRS for this little youth! ...

I love the ease it brings to the game, I love her look, I love the sound it discharge. Its gain is extremely impressive for the single coil.

I noticed that she was against by not always sensitive to every position of play w / r in selected micro ... but it can also be seen on other guitars. It's just that it's a slam that is affected when one notices a little more than a guitar with a greater frequency range (comme. .. on my PRS, which is more "constant" in sound, regardless of the microphone, whether it attacks the top or bottom of the handle) Again, this is a retail and guitarists like SRV would be screwed because they often change their major based micro desired positions of play ...

The value for money is completely insane, incredible, amazing and ... and .. ! I paid 270 euros ... New!

I tried loads of makes and models. This one stood out for its price, its sound (which is exactly what I wanted), the quality of the finish (I like the sleeves unvarnished, they get dirty and become beautiful !...), SPEED quality potentiometers and switch ... Also, at my store (Music Gagné et Frères, rue Durocher Quebec City) is offering two years of free service, on site, the purchase of a stringed instrument, then! ...

G&L Tribute ASAT Special
Small Corenne that 22 frets
with 2 single coil pickups but with a power greater than
usual (size pickups in consquence).
The strings rest on an easel spcial G & L which is superb finish,
and quality.
the rglages are simple (volume, tonal slecteur micro (round, round bridge, bridge)


The handle is like all the G & L, super fast and enjoyable.
The weight is not important but trs lgrement suprieur some strata, but can not even when the weight of a gibson /
The sound is great and can be easily snapping the adjustable soft-edged sword.


This is a guitar that goes well with the fast amp (Vox, Marshall ,...)


Its overall look is beautiful, sublime and more polish, it offers a good personality and its surprising ease of play.
A super quality / price as the full range tribute (I've tried)

Advisor and again no choice hsitation
