    The previous owner needed to fund the purchase of a 1959 J-45, so I was more than happy to help him out. :D

    Silver sparkle w/ matching headstock, chambered body (it's quite light), and 4-way switch. It's in *flawless* condition.

    I'm still messing with pickup adjustments, but overall I am very impressed with the entire package.

    Glorious.

    I have two G&Ls myself - a 2010/11 Legacy in Himalayan blue and a 2011 ASAT Special Deluxe 'No Top' in butterscotch blonde.

    I haven't actually played the ASAT yet as it is back home in Ireland and I'm working in Spain until the summer. I'm dying to try it!

    I love mine. That front pickup is really nice. I got them to balance easily. That guitar looks great....

    The neck pickup in the Classic Custom is custom wound for the model, it's both hotter and fatter sounding.

    Probably the fattest sounding single coil pickup I've heard.

    My own ....

    that silver sparkle finish with rosewood board is about as good as it gets, looks-wise. The Classic Customs are very nice, as are the Classics and the Specials! The price of used ASATs has gone up over the last year.

    Congrats! Great guitar. I have an ASAT Special and a ASAT Classic and I love them both. I am a G&L guy.

    These are probably some of my favourite "currently-made" guitars on the market right now. Yours looks ace!

    I have a bluesboy with the Seth lover in the neck; great pu and the match with the mfd bridge is perfect. Also have a special deluxe and those are great pu's too. So the custom classic sounds like a great match... Best of both worlds maybe... The body of the Seth lover and the bite of the high output mfd?!!?
