    91518BE7-F164-4F0A-9D49-60F76539B6D6.jpeg I’ve had this G&L ASAT since it was a baby. For almost a decade it was my only electric guitar. I probably would have died happy had I not started experimenting with other guitars.

    Now that I have a full stable, it has gone from my number one that I would never sell to my least favorite SOUNDING guitar that I would never sell. The reason is the pickups. Here they are. Leo’s MFD’s.

    Only place that makes a drop in humbucker replacement is Rio Grande.
    The cost is $335 for the set. Easily the most I’ve ever paid for a set of pickups. I would never pay that much for standard humbuckers or single coils, but since they had me over the barrel, I bought them.

    Base plate is cool.

    Here’s the correction part. When I had the neck off, I found out my 1991 G&L ASAT is actually a 1990 G&L ASAT. Had to do a massive sticker overhaul. Here it is with the Rio Grandes in it. They sound great, by the way. I wish they were $100, but my oldest and sometimes best friend deserves the best.

    If I could figure out how to use SoundCloud I would.

    There's always YouTube. And if your bashful...just focus in closeup on your guitar.

    Okay, @El Tele Lobo, you asked for it. 3/4 of the guitar parts on this are on the ASAT. There's a little Strat in there too. Recorded the whole thing today.
    I thought putting a soundcloud song on here would be easy. Naturally it is more complicated than I had hoped. I'll get back to you.

    The electric guitar parts are all the ASAT.
