G&L Tribute Series Line Gets New ASAT Classic Bluesboy Semi-Hollow Models

G&L adds three new models to the Tribute Series family, ASAT Classic Bluesboy Semi-Hollow Guitar series.

With three of G&L's most popular finishes borrowed from its Fender Avenue facility in Fullerton California, G&L has launched new Tribute Series ASAT Classic Bluesboy Semi-Hollow models sporting a decidedly upscale appearance to complement their premium  tone and feel.

These guitars maintain their original design - a modified version of Leo fender's Telecaster, while showcasing upgraded looks.

The G&L ASAT® Classic Bluesboy™ is a factory-modded version of Leo's final word on the traditional single-cutaway bolt-on guitar, and the semi-hollow version takes it further with G&L's distinctive twin voice chambers and f-hole added to a beautiful swamp ash body. Like its solid-body stablemate, this axe delivers a well-balanced pairing of a G&L alnico humbucker designed by Paul Gagon and a single-coil G&L Magnetic Field Design™ bridge pickup designed by Leo Fender.

Framed in a classic boxed-steel bridge, the single-coil MFD™ bridge pickup delivers crisp attack with complex harmonics while individual brass saddles offer modern levels of intonation refinement. Flip to the neck 'bucker and you'll discover all the charismatic warmth you could ask for. Put 'em together and you'll find yourself immersed in exploring the limits of this guitar's surprising versatility. What's more, the semi-hollow body softens the midrange attack, accentuating the low and high harmonics.
