G&L Guitars News: Two New ASATs Join G&L's Tribute Series

Two New ASATs Join G&L's Tribute® Series

The Junior II and Deluxe II -- P90s and 'Buckers On Tap

G&L ASATs: Great players have been workin' 'em and G&L's been moddin' 'em for nearly 30 years. Ash, Alder, Mahogany, Korina ... solid and semi-hollow ... MFD and Alnico single-coils, humbuckers, P90s ... two-pickup, three-pickup -- you get the point: the ASAT's a tone machine, and now G&L's Tribute Series is growing by two tweaked-for-tone ASAT models: the ASAT Junior II and the ASAT Deluxe II.

The ASAT Junior II carries two Paul Gagon-designed P90 pickups, specially spec'd to deliver stellar tones in each position and with matched output for more truly usable rhythm/lead switching. The ASAT Deluxe II sports two Gagon-designed humbuckers straight from the award-winning ASAT Deluxe Carved Top, complete with push/pull coil tap to wring out every last drop of tone.

Both of these ASATs feature easy-playing, medium-C profile necks with 12" radius and 1-5/8" nut width for a classic ASAT feel that greets the hand like an old friend. Add on Tone-Pros bridge/tailpiece hardware, delicious Irish Ale-finished Mahogany bodies and Hard Rock Maple necks with Rosewood boards and you've got two versatile ASATs that effortlessly cover a wide range of sonic territory.

The Junior II and Deluxe II models have popped up before in short-run Custom Creations models made at G&L's Fullerton, California shop, but this is the first time they've been this widely available. On top of that, they're part of G&L's Tribute Series, which has been garnering rave reviews for more than a decade thanks to its solid combination of tone, quality and value.

Yet again the ASAT has proven that versatility is deep in its DNA.
