Two different guitars from the mind of Leo. First there was the Tele, that was there for the R&R explosion and country. The G&L ASAT Special was named the G&L Broadcaster until 1985. I own only the ASAT Special, when I bought it, I did a showdown between about 15 guitars including PRS's, Gibsons, and Fender Tele's. It came down to the Fender custom shop Tele and the ASAT, went and had lunch. Iwent in to buy the ASAT and I did. Never looked back. Which of these two guitars do you prefer? (I have a feeling the ASAT is going to lose big time because the Tele is the Tele, what can I say?? Which do you prefer?
