    I recently traded a Dean hollow body for a Legacy Tribute. So very happy. Love the pickups, incredible tone control. The neck has reacted a bit to winter weather and flattened out a bit. Used included Allen wrench to chase away the buzzing. Always wanted a nice strat, finally happy with my bargain G&L.

    I'm looking seriously at ordering an ASAT Classic S Alnico but with an MFD pickup in the neck (assuming G&L will do this).

    Anyone have experience with this or thoughts on how that combination might work out? My goal is to have authentic Telecaster bite and twang but the gorgeous fullness of MFD too. The middle pickup would offer some Strat "quack" from what I've read.

    How would you compare the G&L Alnico single coil to Fender (I have experience with a MIM FSR Telecaster and love the tone)? I guess I'm hoping they'll be similar to the FSR - I was not so impressed with the more high end v-mod and noiseless Fender pickups.

    Thanks for any input!

    Oh yes I think G&L are superior instruments imho the make a nice piece. imho
    a lot of refinement from the traditional Fender instruments, It's like those guys rolled up their sleeves and went back to work on the things other couldn't see or care about.

    "A Rose by any other name, would still smell as sweet" -W.S.

    and a Tele by any other name still plays as sweet.

    The neck profile, the pickups, (and the weight, oy vey!) - so different from a Fender, and yet a fresh take on Leo's original broadcast to the world.

    With the exception of the switch tip (a Fender "Broadcaster" repro part) and the pearl pickguard (custom cut by Chandler, an OEM parts provider to G&L), all the swapped parts are pure G&L. No rewiring, no permanent mods - just a Broadcaster in a Tuxedo.

    It started with the control knobs, which are much taller than the originals, which were uncomfortably short. Once it had 'chrome' parts, the rest kinda snowballed (I still have all the original parts in the case).
