Now your talking!!!
I love G&L's, I own several of them.
I think the weirdest G&L model I own is a Tribute Ascari GTS HB3 - 24.75" scale with 3 humbuckers. I believe it's now been discontinued. Here's a stock photo of it:
Yeah, these were not made in Surabaya with most of the other Tributes.
This model was sent out for Production to a contractor in China. I think the Jerry Cantrell model, a few others also got farmed out.
Thanks for the info. The Ascari was an odd model in their lineup and the 3HB version was even more odd. I'm glad I got one before they were discontinued as it's the only 3HB guitar I own.
I have three G&Ls. All are absolutely outstanding. They're like my Fenders but "more". Bigger sound, expertly constructed (USA regular models are Fender CS in build quality) and the pickups!!! They're absolutely incredible.
I have an S500 that I bought used about 15 years ago. It is just flat out terrific. But I would like to find a USA ASAT that I can afford to accompany it.
My G&L Bluesboy, I find the bridge pickup stronger than my Fender. I love the individual brass saddles
I had a lower model Tribute Series bass. It was as well made as any of my US made guitars. G&L are great.
I can vouch for the USA models. Here are a few that I've enjoyed
Here is my Tribute Bluesboy, as per my other post here I’m trying to figure out a replacement neck humbucker. Everything else about this guitar is awesome! The neck and frets are very nice, and the bridge pickup is spanky, clear and smooth. Highly recommend
My S-500 mentioned before. It's "a Strat on steroids."

I still have the F-100. I would like to try the other two again (especially the Nighthawk), with my current skill set and taste in instruments...but they were lost in the Great Guitar and Amp Collection Mortgage Payment Massacre of ‘94-‘96.
A few years ago, I fortuned upon another Nighthawk, but it didn’t feel like my first one, so I never bonded with it; I sold it and broke even.
I’ve played many, many other G&Ls (I am friends with two brothers who collected them at one time, and had upwards of 60 different G&Ls)...of those dozens I played, all were well-made and most of them were inspiring...
But all my guitars (Strat, F-100, resonator) have been supplanted by the Telecaster in my avatar pic.
My asat special is my favorite guitar. Plays very fast and being semi hollow body helps with long gigs and multiple sets.
Not an ASAT, but I've got a G&L Doheny that is amazing:
