First, I need to thank one of the greatest groups of enablers for helping to convince this neophyte that another guitar might be a good idea, or at least not a bad one. I figure no better way exists to celebrate 6 months of learning/playing, right? Anyway, my first T-style: a 2013 LE ASAT Special Tribute, in clear emerald over swamp ash. I had admired both G&L's blueburst and their version of surf/Bel Air green, and this beauty split the difference for me. Plus, Tribute value with a swamp ash body. Initial impressions are that the Indonesian builds seem at least superficially comparable to the Chinese build I got to see more recently. It feels solid and, at 8.2 lbs, not unwieldy. This is also my first maple fretboard, and the feel is more different from rosewood than I expected: not worse, just different--maybe less soft/forgiving. The wide MFDs are to die for, especially clean, even if they aren't "classic" Tele. The only potential issue is that I think I *might* need a second string tree to hold A and D at a better angle from the nut. First pics are from the seller, and show the grain and color more clearly than I could. I was not a fan of the deluxe-style knobs, and put the originals back on. (Fingers crossed on the pics).
