So in my journeys I have seen a few G&L ASAT models that were US made with a metal plate on the back of the head with the serial number. I have recently seen one or two that do not, they had a serial stamped on the tip of the head on the back. I do not have much experience with G&L guitars, but was contemplating buying one and want to make sure I am looking for the right things. The ones in particular I am talking about do not say "Tribute" on them, they say "Guitars by Leo" under the logo on the face of the head. One even has the certificate of authenticity and build sheet so I figure it is safe to assume they are US made.
