    I picked up a G&L Tribute ASAT Deluxe in transparent red from MF last week. It's not bad, but I'm really not thrilled with the satin neck; it really needs tinting IMO.

    Anyway, I see that there is also the Tribute ASAT Deluxe II, available in Irish Ale. I can't see what kind of finish the neck has. Is it also white satin? Or is it tinted, like the Fallout Tribute? Are there any other differences between the two models?

    Yours may be either
    Top wood: Flamed maple (swamp ash on Butterscotch Blonde)
    Body wood: Solid mahogany (swamp ash on Butterscotch Blonde)

    Saddlelock bridge


    ...while it is solid mahogany on the Deluxe II.

    Tonepros bridge.

    I wasn't thrilled with the neck on mine at first. Now that I have it, I wouldn't change a thing. I love that guitar.

    The neck feels good, that's for sure. It's just so..... white. Maybe I'll just tint it.
