    I just realized that their was no G&L owners club, and I know their are others on here, so without further ado, welcome to the G&L Owners Clubs thread.

    A couple of months ago I picked up my G&L ASAT Classic tribute series. Sweet guitar that now has me gassing for an American made G&L. And once my 000-18 sells, I am going to do just that. But for now, here's mine.

    Here's mine (I think I've posted this pic in another thread):

    This was my 'gateway' Tele -- even though it's not technically a Tele I've purchased a '52 RI and an American Std. since. It's completely stock, and I really love the pickups. I'm thinking about replacing the pickguard with a black one though.

    G&Ls are highly addictive. I bought my first in April '08.

    I now have twelve :rolleyes: ( up until Monday it was eleven but I went and bought another, just could not resist)

    Here's a couple of shots of some of them ...

    ASATs' - Bluesboy, Deluxe, Classic Custom and III

    Lecacys' - Deluxe, 2HB, HB and an S-500 Deluxe

    And yes they are all upside down and back to front.

    Very handy that 'cos I'm left handed :lol:

    No pics, but i have a nice sunburst 96 Legacy. Mostly gets ignored while I play the Tele's.

    SouthpawGuy, you need just "one" more. You are a club all by yourself!

    Here's my USA made ASAT Classic.....I picked it up off craigslist 4 months ago for $650 with a HS case...dark pic but the only one I have so far....I simply cannot find a Fender that can compete with it overall...

    Anyone own both USA and Tribute asats? Any thoughts on if there is that much difference? I've read Boris' well supported thoughts on how he feels the USA ones are far superior...and obviously I would expect the USA ones to be better overall....but are they THAT much better? ..Anyone have a different experience?


    BTW...Kudos to the thread starter.......a G&L owners club thread was definitely needed!!:cool:

    I'm not an ASAT (or any other G&L model) owner, but if you'll indulge me, I'd like to respond to your question, Chuck.

    This time last year I was checking out G&Ls. I tried a couple of ASAT Classic Tributes and a USA. I don't claim to have the most skilled hands or the most sophisticated ear, but I remember taking note at the time that *for me* there was not enough difference between them in terms of playability and sound to be worth the extra money for an American made ASAT.

    BTW, I didn't wind up going with G&L, but I liked them. They were just a little different than what I was looking for. The neck felt different; not bad, just different. And those MFD pups were sure hot, but again just different than what I was looking for.

    Hi, my name is Chris, and I'm a G&L addict. :( I've owned maybe twenty of the suckers over the last decade or so. :oops: Oh, and three of the basses. :-|

    Eventually had to sell most of them, but they're great, great guitars. My current fave is an ASAT Z-3 Semi-Hollow with V-neck (littered with birdseyes) and an ebony board. It has the best neck of any guitar I've ever owned, period. And it works for any and every style of music. (Okay, maybe not Japanese shakuhachi -- but I bet you could fake it.) ;-) CS

    I've got two Asats, and a Broadcaster. I love all of them! Bought the first one in '89 after seeing (and hearing) John Jorgenson play one. I gotta take some pictures of all three of them...

    Some beautiful guitars, you all! SouthpawGuy, I especially like your red burst with the maple fretboard. Now that's what I'm talking about! What do they call that color?

    That pickguard looks to be custom made.....a bit more like a traditional Tele. Very nice guitar, though!

    I bought that one used, like most of my G&Ls, it might have been a custom order ? It is a looker !
