I want a G&L ASAT really badly, and I refuse to buy a Tribute. No valid reason, they are fantastic guitars. I want the 2008 Custom Shop that matches my spalted Legacy. Here's one on Reverb, https://reverb.com/item/5338661-200...lear-natural-spalted-maple-ltd-to-60-ohsc-coa They only made 60 and I really can't spend two grand on one. A Tribute will be 90% of the one for two grand, for 1/5th the money. It's sooo nice though.
