    Can anyone tell me if this is an actual G&L ASAT bass body, the only markings are RGG in the neck pocket. The bridge is not G&L.

    My guess, (and it's only a guess ) is no. That's not a G&L bridge for sure, and I don't see any marks where the old bridge would have been.
    If you can get a picture of the back, you should be able to tell very quickly. Most ASATs will have a 3 bolt neck attachment, the newer ones will have a 6 bolt.

    I'm thinking this is probably a Warmoth "Custom T" http://www.warmoth.com/bass/bodies/custom_t.cfm

    But as always, I reserve the right to be completely incorrect.

    As Coop said almost all ASATs had the three bolt neck up until about 6 months ago.

    Maybe someone got one of those Warmoth bodies and dropped G&L pups and controls into it from some other model. The jack is wa non G&L also. I say a parts bass andthe auction doesn't claim this is a true ASAT if you read it carefully.

    I'd call a dealer and price what a set of controls and pickups would cost. That IMHO is all that hunk 'o wood is worth. Especially with the "loose binding" he reports.

    Yeah, I saw this one. no way is it an ASAT -- or any kinda G&L body. My advice is to stay away from it unless you're a gambler. There's several real ASATs listed in eBay.
