The G&L Tribute ASAT Special is one of the most wonderful guitars in the range. The telecaster can sometimes be thought of as a little too bright and brittle in the treble side but the ASAT Specials pickups (I will refer to them as P90 pickups but I believe they would describe them differently - but I like to keep things simple!) have the most wonderful sweet tone - just that litttle bit thicker than the single coil but without the RARRRRR!!!! of humbuckers! Beautiful, restrained tone which I am a huge fan of.
As you will see from the couple of pictures here the quality is just second to none. Some people are not aware that they are put together in the Cort factory (Cort produce a long list of guitars for brand names such as Ibanez, Fender, Schecter) - the hardware such as pickups and bridge are the very same you will find on the American made custom shop models which is what makes these guitars unbelievable value at just £539.

To ensure anyone can benefit from this highly personalized service we subsidize the delivery costs from our pocket - not yours, resulting in the following delivery charges*
Any delivery to Western Europe £15.

Every guitar is packed personally by Richard. We purchase especially strengthened outer cartons and pack each guitar in a way that guarantees the guitar will come out the box as it went in - perfect.
If you bought your guitar from an alternate source it would cost you at least £50 to have it play to the standard that we set our guitars AS standard.
Why would you want to buy from a faceless online store if you can buy from someone who values every customer and their personal needs?
I do hope we can help you further as we provide the service you wish you could find locally!
