I must have owned about 15/16 Fender Telecasters over the years and love them. My current Tele is a Baja but I've owned a few US made guitars too. Baja just happened to be the keeper. I also own a Classic Player Jazzmaster and a Gibson Les Paul Studio. Anyway, I was just browsing on Gumtree and saw a used G & L ASAT Classic for £220. I've never tried a G& L so I bought it out of curiosity. At that price I thought - nothing to lose! Sure if I don't bond with it I can sell it. A used Baja is probably £500/600 here. So I thought small financial risk to try something different out. I absolutely love it. Pickups are awesome, build quality to me seems spot on. Made in Indonesia 2013 I think. If someone handed me this and said there's a £1500 guitar I don't think I'd argue. Maybe just me not being good at finding weaknesses but I've played guitar over 20 years and think I know whats good. For £220 this thing is just awesome.
