I recently purchased a G & L ASAT Semi Hollowbody and have spent a lot of time finding out about them. What I have found is that of all of Leo's creations have been a massive success, but with the exception of the G & L brand. No matter what model you take they seem to lack appeal to both well known artists and pros alike. They look pretty cool (mine being no exception), the build quality is amazing, the sound though lacks a perceived signature and I think this is where the problem lies. Is it because no artist has taken a G&L and recorded with it that has caused the perceived lack of sound signature or is it that the sound is so characterless that it fails to attract - who knows?? They have been around a few decades now so the situation is unlikely to change. Personally speaking, I have had Fenders, Rics, Yamahas which I can identify a sound mainly because I can relate it to songs I know, but with G&L and am left confused as to whether is has a signature sound at all.
