I went down to my local guitar store yesterday to hand in all the parts for my new build to be assembled and while trying out all the Fender teles a guy handed me an ASAT Special. I have never had my hands on a G&L before and was very very impressed with how it was built. The neck especially grabbed me as it was the same size roughly as my 52 ri but way smoother. It was like it had no finish. Then i plugged it in, it flat out rips and does all the sounds i wanted. The pickups sound like p90s but able to still do the tele thing. I am strongly considering trading something in for this guitar but i need another telecaster like i need a hole in the head. Anyone here play one? Own one? Have input into these guitars? Talk me out of buying it?
