2007 G&L ASAT Classic Nashville-style Electric Guitar

I do like G&Ls! They're built tight and tough and feel both workmanly and luxurious at the same time. There's something about those pickups that does it for me -- they manage to be chimey, clean, and balanced all in one package. I've always liked them since I played my first grungy old '80s G&L many moons ago.

The ASAT Classic, of course, is the G&L take on a traditional Tele-style guitar, complete with retro-like bridge design and format. The older, weirder ASAT models feature the G&L pickguard shape, bridge, and hardware style but this one is fairly "like home" for any Fender player. It feels like a Tele in the hands and in this configuration, with its third middle-position pickup, it handles like a "Nashville Tele" with a more Stratty tone set and switching setup, especially in the neck and middle positions.

This particular ASAT Classic is also even more intriguing -- its spec sheet lists it as a semihollow (thinline) variant but with no f-hole. That's why it clocks in at 7 lbs on the dot despite that heavy-duty body. It has a "vintage tint" neck and pearloid pickguard, too, which sits prettily with the cherryburst finish.

All I had to do was adjust the setup and it's now playing spot-on and is ready to go.
