New Tribute Series ASAT Deluxe Carved Top from G&L

July 15, 2011
<img src="/Portals/0/ASTDlx.jpg" alt="img" style="float: left; margin-right: 9px; margin-bottom: 9px;" />G&amp;L has unveiled the latest addition to the popular Tribute Series guitars: the ASAT Deluxe Carved top. It&rsquo;s fired up with twin chrome-covered Alnico humbuckers--designed by G&amp;L&rsquo;s Paul Gagon--mounted in a bound, flame maple-topped mahogany body. This new axe takes the iconic ASAT further into hard rocking territory while retaining the feel and playability that have made the ASAT a perennial favorite among players.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> The ASAT Deluxe Carved Top sports an easy-playing 1-5/8" nut-width neck, a classic C-shaped back and 12" fingerboard radius to make deep bends a breeze. Holding it down on the other end is a G&amp;L Saddle Lock bridge designed by Leo Fender for comfort and singing sustain. The Gagon-designed pickups are split via a push/pull tone pot to offer everything from jangly single-coil tones to gritty blues to scorching leads.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> &bull; G&amp;L Alnico humbuckers designed by Paul Gagon&nbsp;<br /> &bull; Bound flame maple top over carved mahogany body<br /> &bull; Hard-rock 25-1/2" scale maple neck with 22-fret rosewood fingerboard<br /> &bull; G&amp;L SaddleLock hardtail bridge designed by Leo Fender<br /> <br /> The ASAT Deluxe Carved Top is just what many ASAT fans have been waiting for: an affordable, well-made alternative to the Fullerton-made G&amp;L ASAT Deluxe. Guitarist Joel Kelley of the up-and-coming alt-rock band Edisun is using the axe on tour in support of the band&rsquo;s self-titled debut album. Edisun&rsquo;s music is in regular use by ESPN sports and will be preloaded on 4 million Sony tablet computers this year.<br /> <br /> The ASAT Deluxe Carved Top is available in Trans Red (pictured) or Trans Black and carries a suggested retail price of $715 with street price expected to be about $499.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.glguitars.com/" target="_blank"><strong>www.glguitars.com</strong></a>
