Tribute Series Ascariô GTS with Mahogany Body and Flamed Maple Top in Transparent Black with Rosewood Fingerboard
From the G&L website:
"G&Lís done something special: We have created an instrument that is steeped in guitar history yet strikingly new - The Ascari, the newest member of G&Lís Tribute Series.
It was inspired by a recently uncovered prototype drawing done three decades ago by G&L co-founder George Fullerton, representing Leo Fenderís vision for G&Lís first 24ĺĒ scale, three-tuners-to-a-side guitar. It was designed jointly by G&Lís longtime VP of engineering, Paul Gagon, and his close friend and former collaborator, Grover Jackson, founder of Jackson Guitars. Its DNA is full of rock guitar history.
Yet it breaks new ground for G&L: it has a set neck, a Leo-inspired headstock with three tuners to a side, and a 24ĺĒ scale to put it squarely on the classic side of the rockíníroll stage.
Add in a Tone-Pros tailpiece and tappable humbuckers specially designed by Gagon right here on Fender Avenue, and you have a gorgeous, high-performance rock guitar that is simultaneously strikingly new and steeped in rock guitar history. The Ascari: Born of History, Entirely New."
This guitar does not include a case or a gigbag.
