Buy a new USA G&L and one thing I guarantee is a high depreciation value if you ever decide to sell it – Regardless of all the positive and/or negative comments you can through at a G&L, they just never acquire the recognition that they deserve – This bodes well for prospective buyers looking for a good used guitar, as the high depreciation ensures relatively low used values – Hence this used, 2000 G&L ASAT Semi Hollow T-Line ensures you get a lot of guitar for you money – Essentially Leo Fender designed the ASAT models to be a customised, hot rod versions of his traditional Tele style model  – Therefore an inevitable comparison exists between the model with a big established brand name behind it and the minnows

Let me list a few key details in no particular order :-

Tonal character :-  Maybe an easy description is that of a Tele on steroids – Or a Tele with the boost option turned up – That doesn’t mean it can’t be cool, chilled or laid back, as it can – But with everything on 10 it is more on the hot side – The custom wound pick-ups are still single coil, so the traditional snap, attack and clarity is present and correct – But they are wound and voiced to capture some of the character of a single coil P90 – No issues with hi-gain amp settings and certainly no microphonic squeal – Tight and crunchy from the bridge pick-up with plenty of bite – More smooth and lush from the neck pick-up – Select a chilled clean amp setting and the neck pick-up is succulent and warm with excellent articulation – The bridge pick-up is country pickin’ hot with no shortage of snap and attack – Maybe the ASAT shines at its best on more of a crunch overdriven amp setting – This allows you to control the amp from the guitar, from a softer clean voice to more gain and bite – hence plenty of subtle but effective variations, hence more soul and emotion at your fingertips – From jazz to hot country, rockabilly and swing, to punk and indie the ASAT is well deserving of a place in your collection
