I've got it bad for an ASAT Special Semi-Hollow. I'm seriously looking into them, even thinking about trading in my mid-ninties (American Standard?) tele on/for one. My question is, I've been reading here and other places about the G&L Tributes. Anyone have experience with ASAT Tributes and USA models? What are the differences? Are they really negligible? Or are the USA models better made, better sounding/playing etc? thanks.
