G&L ASAT Junior II Electric Guitar – Trans Red
ASAT Junior II: P-90s Done Right.
G&L ASATs: Great players have been workin’ ‘em and G&L’s been moddin’ ‘em for nearly 30 years. Ash, Alder, Mahogany, Korina … solid and semi-hollow … MFD and Alnico single-coils, humbuckers, P90s … two-pickup, three-pickup – you get the point: the ASAT’s a tone machine, and now G&L’s Tribute Series has grown with the tweaked-for-tone ASAT Junior II.
The ASAT Junior II carries two Paul Gagon-designed P90 pickups, specially spec-ed to deliver stellar tones in each position and with matched output for more truly usable rhythm/lead switching. No more fumbling with the volume trying to find balance between the P90s.
The Junior II features an easy-playing, medium-C profile neck with 12” radius and 1 5/8” nut width for a classic ASAT feel that greets the hand like an old friend. Add on Tone-Pros bridge/tailpiece hardware, delicious Trans Red-finished Mahogany body and Hard Rock Maple neck with Brazilian Cherry board and you’ve got one versatile ASAT that effortlessly covers a wide range of sonic territory.
The Junior II has popped up before in short-run Custom Creations models made at G&L’s Fullerton, California shop, but this is the first time it’s been this widely available. On top of that, it’s part of G&L’s Tribute Series, which has been garnering rave reviews for more than a decade thanks to its solid combination of tone, quality and value.
Yet again the ASAT has proven that versatility is deep in its DNA.
