Scored a near-mint 2010 USA G&L ASAT classic off the eBay.

If you've played one of these, you know what I'm talkin' 'bout. Plays like butter and sounds more like a Tele than any Tele I tried.

Photos to come once I'm less tired, and I re-learn how to do photos here. Just had to mark the occasion. It's been so long, GuitarGeek.

congrats. i was looking for a thinline version, but they were too far out of my price range. i sat in my local music store and played one for a good hour though and loved it.

That's one lovely lookin' guitar. Mind if I ask how much you scored it for? I've always wanted a G&L.

Thanks, guys!

I got it for 841 USD, including shipping and a very posh Fender hardshell case with crushed blue velvet interior and ****. A little more than I was originally going to shell out, but for the price it's an amazing guitar. The pickups sound a little hotter than the Fenders I've tried, but with amazingly low noise, and without sacrificing clarity and tone for higher output. Very versatile even with just two pickups. Plenty of jangly brightness. :cool:
