G&L USA ASAT Classic Bluesboy Guitar, Whiskey Finish, Rosewood Fretboard

$1,599.99

Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy in a beautiful Whiskey finish.

The Bluesboy adds warmth and depth to unmistakable ASAT and Tele-style comfort and clarity. With a clean tone, you can pull all kinds of twang out of this axe, but unlike a lot of single-coil bolt-on Tele-style guitars, you can just as easily get thick, rich, and creamy tones courtesy of the humbucker in the neck position. With some distortion, this guitar turns into the perfect axe for any kind of blues, rock or country. It thickens up and cuts through with a meaty, mids-y punch, more than living up to its name. The neck is very comfortable; slim enough to allow for lightning fast licks, but still substantial enough so that it doesn't feel like a toothpick in your hands. The MFD single-coil in the bridge provides a beefier, fattier, and more aggressive tone than your traditional bridge Tele pickup. This guitar represents some of the best American craftsmanship around and is incredibly versatile. 

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, the Bluesboy delivers with a well-balanced pairing of a humbucker using alnico 2 magnets and a single-coil Magnetic Field Design bridge pickup that was 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.
