G&L Tribute ASAT Classic Bluesboy, Solidbody, Lake Placid Blue, New, SN 4151
This specific guitar weighs 8.3 pounds.
When we ordered this Lake Placid Blue ASAT with the tortoise pickguard, I was kind of curious how the visual combination of colors would work. When we opened the shipping container from G&L, I was thrilled with how this guitar presents itself. To be honest, I think you could put any pickguard on Lake Placid Blue and it would be a beautiful guitar, but the multi-ply tortoise pickguard just jumps out at me.
This is a solid-body (no f-hole) version of the famed G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy, and it sounds and plays as good as it looks.

Here's what the good folks at G&L have to say about this guitar:
The G&L ASAT® Classic Bluesboy™ is a factory-modded version of Leo’s final word on the traditional single-cutaway bolt-on axe. For players looking for the unmistakable warmth of a classic humbucker in the neck position, the Bluesboy delivers with a well-balanced pairing of a G&L alnico humbucker and a single-coil G&L Magnetic Field Design™ bridge pickup designed by Leo Fender†.
Framed in a classic boxed-steel bridge, the single-coil MFD™ bridge pickup delivers crisp attack with complex harmonics while individual brass saddles offer modern levels of intonation refinement. Flip to the neck ‘bucker and you’ll discover all the charismatic warmth you could ask for. Put ‘em together and you’ll find yourself immersed in exploring the limits of this guitar’s surprising versatility.
The Tribute® Series ASAT Classic Bluesboy is dripping with mojo at a price attainable for every working musician. Once you play a G&L Tribute Series, you’ll never look back.
