I just got my first single coil guitar. I purchased a G&L Tribute ASAT Special. It feels very good after I raised the action and gave some relief to remove some minor fret buzz (mainly E and A strings). The guitar feels very good out of the box. I am not familiar with how to change the sounds/tones it makes yet. The neck feels pretty good. I don't have to do anything to it. Most of my mod plans have gone out the window because I find the guitar comfortable in a seated position. Don't think I need a forearm or belly cut. I haven't had time to mod, but I'm planning to install the following: Hipshot Directrofit staggered locking tuners Dunlop strap lock buttons D'Addario Chromes (0.010) Flatwound strings. Coming from bass, I like flats.
