Yes the 12" radius does work with the chunky neck. I also have a Bluesboy semi with an even bigger neck and 12" radius, non "v" profile. I might add that I'm not really dependant on a particular neck profile or radius, I like them all. All of the necks on my ASATs are different, from old to new ones they all vary, and I actually like that a lot. I have a '97 American Std Tele and Strat and a '93 American Std Strat and they all have identical necks, 100% the same. I'm not knocking Fender here, I have quite a few as they were the default for me for a long long time but as a left handed player it was a revelation discovering G&L two years ago after playing for 28 years.Yes, that's the G&L I'd love to own right there. I really like that Natural Gloss finish, but not sure about the 12" radius. Does it work well with the thick neck shape?
Thanks for the pics!
What effect does the Taipantone block have?I've got 2; they're great value for money, especially barely used.
I switch the bridge out for a Tele 3 barrel type, with compensated saddles. And I install a Tone Block from Vince Stadler (Taipantone) in aluminum or brass in place of the factory Delrin block.
Now, the frets are not small and you will have to pay attention as to whether the one you are buying is 7.50 radius or 12 radius.
Yes, that's my ASAT III, it has a five way switch and S500 MFDs which are not the same as regular ASAT MFDs. The neck pickup is very stratty. It was made in the mid to late '90s and has the slimmest neck of all of my G&Ls. Also has the three bolt neck, I personally don't prefer the three over the four bolt neck.SPG, is this your G&L? I thought I recognized the grain from a pic you posted at the TDP. Beautiful!
The newer necks are definitely on the larger side, from medium to chunky. Mind you the last Legacy I bought is a '97 and it has a fuller neck than the ASAT III pictured above, not thin at all.Thin necks seems to be a common complaint on certain G&L guitars. I had a 1995 Legacy that had a 'too thin' neck profile also. I hear that in this decade they have moved to larger shapes. I'm sure you have noticed the trend?
