^ thicker, more mids. haven't tried them in a tele. I really like them. i played a comanche at this store one time.

the PGS demo on youtube gives a good idea.

Same here, only played the comanches. They're got more meat on the bone, if you will.

Thanks!

Part of my criteria for guitar collecting is that, when I buy a brand that has guitars with common options and unique/unusual options, I gravitate towards those that are more characteristic of the brand...assuming those are good in some way.

And the z-coils help set G&L apart. Which is good, since I have a custom "Tele" in the works, a Fret-King HSS on the way, and have my eyes on certain Godins. I would NEED any G&L I would buy to be different in an objective way from what I already own.

Plus there's the aspect of not wanting too much overlap in the collection anyway- the Fret-King, as mentioned, is HSS, and I'm looking hard at either a HSH or SSS Godin. That sorts means that whatever the Godin isn't, the G&L might be...unless I go the "Tele" route.

same here. the mfds qualify in that respect, too.

Been looking at a variety of 'em, actually- Comanches, Invaders...some of the ASATs. Part of the trick is finding which model most seems to embody the company's ideals at least to me. What guitar seems to be the least like everyone else's permutation on the original designs...

Within my budget, of course.

So i'll have to track down some dealers and figure out why ASAT Deluxe over ASAT Z? What sets an Invader apart from everyone else's HSH guitars. What makes a Comanche cool?

Especially as compared to analogous Godins...

If you're looking for the epitome G&L, I'd say a flame top Comanche.

The Comanche DOES call my name in the night, sometimes... Partly because it was the first G&L I ever tried, many years ago.

There are lots of summer car meets in my area. I should see if some guys would let me take photos of my ASATs next to their rides.

IV been really wanting a bluesboy lately and I really want one in that transparent orange BC its my favorite color, my question is what's the big difference between the bb classic and the bb classic semi hollow? Besides the obvious hollow body and around 500 dollar difference in price, but I mean hardware, neck, and pickup wise.

it just seems odd to me why there's such a big price difference between the two. I really don't want another hollow body but at 500 dollars less it seems stupid to go for the classic solid body
#190
^^^^^^^wow, those are like two of the nicest colours G&L does, nice choice

I'd probably prefer a white scratchplate on the legacy, but obviously that's changeable (and more obviously it's your guitar and you probably prefer it with the black, which is fair enough )



EDIT: ^ wait the semi-hollow one is cheaper? I thought the semi-hollows were normally dearer?

i can' t help with the question, though, i haven't tried the semi-hollow...

you can also get semi hollow with out the F hole if you want light weight .... same hardware PU's and everything else between them all , including tributes , its just a matter of solid body , semi hollow and semi hollow with no sound hole , hollow body will sound different than solid body
#192
Oil just realized I was comparing a tribute to an American made ha, but I really want a solid body tribute in trans orange but I can't find it anywhere
#193
ah ok that makes more sense

Bah, humbug!

SEEING the strings is overrated, whippersnapper.

I've played both styles of Bluesboys in detail. The solidbody Bluesboys definitely have more of a sticks-to-your-ribs-oatmeal feel than the Semihollows, whereas the semi's tend to have a more long-island-iced-tea-with-a-lot-of-vodka feel.

But which one will get you a grittier, dirtier blues tone when you're covering David Wilcox's "Bad Apple?"

#199
It depends on how much bass response and thickness you want. If you want a really punchy tone, I'd go solid-body. If you want it to be a bit thinner and nasally, semi-hollow. Both will get really gritty, it comes down to how you want to be felt in the mix. Punchy and powerful, or trebly and jangly. Both do the tones well, the one or other will fit a bit better into a certain niche.

I also want to say that it's been over a year and I'm still madly in love with my ASAT Special. What a fantastic guitar. The Special is by far the best in the lineup if you ask me.
