G&L Guitars Unveils the ASAT Classic Bluesboy 90

The guitar is loaded with a single-coil G&L Magnetic Field Design bridge pickup created by Leo Fender.

Fullerton, CA (October 28, 2015) -- – The ASAT Classic Bluesboy 90 has quickly become one of the most popular ASATs ever, and now the new Bluesboy 90 Semi-Hollow adds G&L’s distinctive twin voice chambers and f-hole to a beautiful swamp ash body. As with the original Bluesboy, the single-coil G&L Magnetic Field Design bridge pickup created by Leo Fender delivers crisp attack with complex harmonics while individual brass saddles offer modern levels of intonation refinement. Flip to the G&L P-90 in the neck position and there's a whole lot of bluesy tone but with more harmonics than a humbucker can offer. What’s more, the neck+bridge combo dishes out glorious jangly tone.

Made in the historic G&L facility on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California, the ASAT Classic Bluesboy 90 Semi-Hollow is available with a wide range of custom options. MSRP starts at $2,430.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
