G&l: TRIB ASAT CLBB(Item ID: TRIB ASAT CLBB Serial#: 160516379)
Tribute Series ASAT Classic Bluesboy in 3-Tone Sunburst Swamp Ash with Tortoise Pickguard and Rosewood Fingerboard
Most well known manufacturers import copies of their home grown classics. The G&L company, however, is unique in this regard. The important distinction that sets the Tribute Series guitars apart from other company's imports is that the Tributes are fitted with many of the same high-quality proprietary components as those found on their American made counterparts - most notable are the pick-ups! Combining the superior performance of G&L parts with the expertly crafted bodies and necks of these excellent instruments is what makes the G&L Tribute Series guitars such outstanding values. Indeed, it is surprisingly difficult to distinguish them from those to which they pay tribute.
From the G&L website:
"The G&L ASAT® Classic Bluesboy™ is a factory-modded version of Leo’s final word on the traditional single-cutaway bolt-on axe. For players looking for the unmistakable warmth of a classic humbucker in the neck position, the Bluesboy delivers with a well-balanced pairing of a G&L alnico humbucker and a single-coil G&L Magnetic Field Design™ bridge pickup designed by Leo Fender.
Framed in a classic boxed-steel bridge, the single-coil MFD™ bridge pickup delivers crisp attack with complex harmonics while individual brass saddles offer modern levels of intonation refinement. Flip to the neck ‘bucker and you’ll discover all the charismatic warmth you could ask for. Put ‘em together and you’ll find yourself immersed in exploring the limits of this guitar’s surprising versatility."
