Double-Humbuckers make this one of the beefiest ASATs ever

Fullerton, CA – July 5, 2011 – G&L has unveiled the latest addition to the popular Tribute Series® guitars:  the ASAT Deluxe Carved top.  It’s fired up with twin chrome-covered Alnico humbuckers – designed by G&L’s Paul Gagon – mounted in a bound, flame maple-topped mahogany body. This new axe takes the iconic ASAT further into hard rocking territory while retaining the feel and playability that have made the ASAT a perennial favorite among players.

The ASAT Deluxe Carved Top sports an easy-playing 1-5/8” nut-width neck, a classic C-shaped back and 12” fingerboard radius to make deep bends a breeze.  Holding it down on the other end is a G&L Saddle Lock bridge designed by Leo Fender for comfort and singing sustain.  The Gagon-designed pickups are split via a push/pull tone pot to offer everything from jangly single-coil tones to gritty blues to scorching leads.

  • G&L Alnico humbuckers designed by Paul Gagon

  • Bound flame maple top over carved mahogany body

  • Hard-rock 25-1/2” scale maple neck with 22-fret rosewood fingerboard

  • G&L Saddle Lock hardtail bridge designed by Leo Fender

The ASAT Deluxe Carved Top is just what many ASAT fans have been waiting for:  an affordable, well-made alternative to the Fullerton-made G&L ASAT Deluxe.  Guitarist Joel Kelley of the up-and-coming alt-rock band Edisun is using the axe on tour in support of the band’s self-titled debut album. Edisun’s music is in regular use by ESPN sports and will be preloaded on 4 million Sony tablet computers this year.

The ASAT Deluxe Carved Top is available in Trans Red or Trans Black and carries a suggested retail price of $715 with street price expected to be about $499.
