The new models sport a decidedly upscale appearance to complement their premium tone and feel.

Fullerton, CA (June 19, 2012) – With three of G&L’s most popular finishes borrowed from its Fender Avenue facility in Fullerton California, G&L has launched new Tribute Series ASAT Classic Bluesboy Semi-Hollow models sporting a decidedly upscale appearance to complement their premium tone and feel.

Each of these new Bluesboys is equipped with a semi-hollow body made of genuine American Swamp Ash, Paul Gagon-designed AS4255C alnico neck humbucker, Leo Fender†-designed G&L MFD single coil bridge pickup made in Fullerton, California, and a classic boxed-steel bridge with individually machined brass saddles, all working in harmony to produce rich, authentic G&L tone. That G&L neck feel is all there, too, with a 1 5/8” nut-width, medium-C profile and 12” radius for deep bends. All this goodness adds up to the sort of experience normally expected from a guitar costing two to three times the price.

Choices include:
• G&L Blonde, tortoise pickguard, tinted gloss neck with rosewood fingerboard
• G&L Clear Orange, 3-ply creme pickguard, tinted gloss neck with maple fingerboard
• G&L Old-School Tobacco Sunburst, 3-ply BWB pickguard, tinted gloss neck with rosewood fingerboard

The G&L Tribute Series have a suggested retail price of just $787.

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
