Exclamation FS: G&L Custom Shop ASAT Deluxe #2 'Blackburst' Flame (Ebony FB, Sperzels, Binding)

This sleek Blackburst 'ASAT Deluxe' is the second of 10 Custom Shop USA G&L USA guitars that I ordered in early December. #1 is a Honeyburst Quilt that will was posted earlier today, with 4 more to come within the next week or two. More details on the other builds can be found below and on my website shortly.

A Little Background

For those who don't know, G&L guitars are built in Fullerton, CA and the "L" in G&L stands for Leo Fender, who founded the company after selling Fender. G&L guitars are beloved for having Fender Custom Shop quality but at a much more reasonable price and with considerably more custom options. I was always very impressed with their build quality and playability, but was always underwhelmed by the boring builds many dealers would spec out. After having their rep bring some samples over t my shop over the summer, I realized I needed to order some of these babies and do it my way. This guitar is the first of 10 guitars that will hopefully represent that.

Of course, The Axe Palace being a G&L dealer, I could custom order you a guitar to your specs as well, but for those looking for something outstanding at a reasonable price, these 10 customs should do the job. Regarding the others that have begun to trickle in: you will see some more like this one but with different configurations, some of the 'Invader' models which have a more metal vibe (super strat w/ OFRs, etc) , and a couple traditional Tele builds only beautiful and unique.

Now on to what people really care about...
