This exact modification of ASAT is called "Bluesboy" because it has a classical PAF-style humbucker in the neck position like Keith Richards always liked it to be. This gives a ton of warmth and bass when playing in the neck position while leaving signature tele bridge tone unchanged. 

MFD ceramic bridge pickup and a redesigned bridge with brass saddles are responsible for that signature tele sound: nasal, chirping twang. So you may treat this guitar as a gentle giant that can go from soft whisper to explosive overdrive in the blink of an eye with just the right hand dynamics.

The Tribute series is the youngest in the G&L lineup. However, they totally nailed it in terms of build quality and, which is even cooler, using original USA components. Pickups and bridges on all guitars of the Tribute series are exactly the same as on top American instruments.

For online orders we manually pack each guitar into a ton of wraps and carton and also have full insurance for all our shippings. So that you wouldn’t worry that something might happen on the way.

MFD Pickups

As a signature feature of G&L, Magnetic Field Design (MFD) pickups are found in the majority of their electric guitars and basses, regarded as a defining characteristic. By transferring the magnetic field to the top of the pickup rather than the middle, they provide a responsive tone with clarity and a wide frequency response. And Leo Fender did this by constructing the MFD pickups utilizing a ceramic bar magnet (installed beneath each coil), with soft iron pole pieces. MFD pickups also yield about twice the output per wind, making them less noisy than most conventional pickups while allowing for greater overall output. The standout feature of MFD pickups is their adjustable pole pieces, enabling players to fine-tune the height of each pole piece for customized string output and EQ experimentation. As a result, the pickups produce less noise, have a very wide dynamic range, and more output while still retainging the glassy tone which we all love.
