Player's Perspective

In 2018 G&L unveiled their Custom Shop to the world. While they've always been making custom guitars in the same building that Leo Fender started the company in via their a-la-carte process, they now have a custom shop that rivals the best in the world.

Take your favorite high-end bolt-on guitar and compare it to anything coming out of the G&L Custom Shop and prepare to get your world rocked. Music Store Live is proud to offer up this beautiful example of just what G&L's finest luthiers are capable of. With a beautiful figured and matched walnut body and a roasted flame maple neck with holographic figuring (more on that later) this guitar looks as beautiful as it sounds.

So let's get right to it because this definitely isn't your granddaddy's ASAT. Let's start at the neck and work our way down. The slab of roasted flame maple that they selected for this one was really a special one. The neck is extremely highly figured with tons of flame all over it, but what's really cool is the almost holographic-like nature of this one. Depending on the angle that you look at it you'll see different stripes popping out. It's a really cool effect that is accentuated by the roasting process. It's cliche to say that the photos don't do it justice, but that's really true with this one.

Of course, the most beautiful neck in the world will still only get you so far... It's got to play just right, and this one absolutely does. The satin clear finish on the roasted neck feels absolutely incredible and the hand-finished neck shape feels familiar, like many other G&L's, but with a bit more refinement to it. The fretwork is absolutely immaculate and the entire construction is spot-on perfect so that you can dial in crazy low action and not even have to sweat about fret-buzzing.

Moving on down to the body we've got an East Indian walnut body loaded up with one G&L MFD single-coil pickup and a Duncan Seth Lover humbucker. It's a classic combo that provides a wealth of extremely musical and very usable tones while being super simple to use and never getting in your way. No need to keep switching between guitars from song to song - you can really cover a huge array of genres just with this bad boy. The Seth Lover pickups are very vintage sounding and they pair well with the powerful MFD single-coil in the bridge. Whether you're playing clean, just going for some light bluesy overdrive, or laying it on thick, this Bluesboy can handle it. The walnut body is going to be very balanced. It produces an even amount of tight and punchy bass, mid-range, and treble across the frequency spectrum while adding some nice texture to the sound.

When we first saw this guitar we instantly fell in love, then we actually played it and it was obvious we needed to have it for our inventory. This is an instrument that just feels like it was put together with a bit of extra attention and care. It takes the already incredibly high standards that G&L have and raises them even further.

Manufacturer's Description

The G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy is a factory-modded version of Leo’s final word on the traditional single-cutaway bolt-on axe. For players looking for the unmistakable warmth of a classic humbucker in the neck position, this Bluesboy delivers with a well-balanced pairing of a Seymour Duncan Seth Lover humbucker and a single-coil G&L Magnetic Field Design bridge pickup designed by Leo Fender. Framed in a classic boxed-steel bridge, the single-coil MFD™ bridge pickup delivers crisp attack with complex harmonics while individual brass saddles offer modern levels of intonation refinement. Flip to the neck ‘bucker and you’ll discover all the charismatic warmth you could ask for. Put ‘em together and you’ll find yourself immersed in exploring the limits of this guitar’s surprising versatility.

THE FINEST FROM FENDER AVENUE
The quality of the instruments and variety of options available in the main G&L factory are legendary, and that’s precisely the reason why the G&L Custom Shop has opened. You see, some owners love everything about their Made-in-Fullerton G&Ls, but there’s always been one option they have never been able to select. That is, they want the very best of G&L: the finest cuts of wood and unsurpassed craftsmanship coming together in the most spectacular instruments ever made on Fender Avenue. It starts with hand-selected woods, carefully chosen for each instrument, and continues with very best craftsmanship and attention to detail.  It’s not just what you see, but what you feel that makes the difference.  From exquisite fretwork to pickguard edges delicately sanded and buffed to feel like an instrument loved and played for decades. Thin urethane or nitrocellulose finishes polished to perfection.  Players who prefer a tastefully worn in look can opt for light to medium aging which projects an authentic vibe.
