So I wanted to try something a little different and stumbled upon some videos of the G&L ASAT Special, justnick's video in particular sparked my interest. I got a new ASAT Special Tribute with the mahogany body for a good price so I went ahead and took a chance through the mail (great return policy helped, free return shipping!). I got it in the mail today and was floored by the quality of the instrument! Great sounding pickups, stellar fit and finish for the most part, and pretty much ready to play right out of the box. I think for the money, I would be hard pressed to find a better foreign made guitar. I'm seriously considering getting a USA made Legacy as I am a past owner of a American Standard Strat and miss those tones. I'd be interested to hear anyone else's thoughts on G&L's as I feel (and some other threads around here have stated the same) they are really underrated. As a disclaimer, I am in no way affiliated with G&L (or any other company for that matter, just an amateur here).
