    MF is doing the G&L SDOTD, if anyone is looking for a good Holiday Deal?

    Check MF website as models may change, but will stay G&L:

    Thanks for the heads up !

    I really want to like em but the nut width is not even 42 and the body edge radius is too round.

    nice guitars though .

    Does that mean a narrower than standard nut width?

    Not totally sure, but I think these are around 1 5/8” nut, which would be 1.625”

    compare that with Epiphone type, 43mm, which is 1.69”.... which is closer to 1 11/16, which is 1.685”

    IDK, I’ve really wanted to like the Tributes, but all the ones I’ve played (which isn’t a TON) felt sorta cheap. Don’t think I could pull trigger on one without trying a few out.

    Will be happy to hear someone tell me I’m out to lunch... but I think you’d be better off waiting for the right axe. Although...seems like they always pop-up when I can justify a purchase. :confused:

    Great guitar. Had one for about a year now. Can't beat it for the money.

    The body edge radius is too round for what, exactly?

    Asshat Guitars. Seems like a solid branding strategy.

    You have to admit, that is a HUGE marketing demographic.

    HAHAHA!

    I thought ASAT was weird too, until I found out it is a name for a missile... Now I think it's the coolest thing ever. Leo was the man.

    My '83 Fender Am Stnd has quite a round edge - rounder than any other Tele I've seen. '83 and '84 were odd years for Fender. I quite like it, though, and would probably like the G&L Tribute.

    I wish Long and McQuade in Canada would do something like "Stupid DOTD" - even once a week would be great.

    1 11/16th is 1.6875 (but I’m not a “well actually ...” person :lol: )

    what/who = me ;)

    I want a sharp edge.

    Tele’s/ASAT’s are cutting boards/planks.


    Not Strats ...:eek:
