I have a G&L guitar ASAT Special Tribute made in Korea and a USA version ASAT Special. The Tribute is a fine guitar in many ways but the USA takes it to a more refined level. The USA version is more touch sensitive and more responsive in a way that there seems to be a higher fidelity and better detail in sound. My understanding is that the electronics are the same on both guitars which leads me to believe that it must be the wood that is making the USA more responsive to my touch. Do you think that the USA is using a better quality wood which is resulting in a better sound compared to the Tribute? Can better wood make a difference? Or is wood just wood? BTW, both guitars are swamp ash and maple neck.
