In all of the written, audio, and video info available from and/or on Ted, I have never heard him mention G & L guitars, specifically the ASAT.  I have owned a couple, including my #1 right now which is a beautiful butterscotch tele-style.  It is about as addictive a guitar as I have owned (and there have been many....).

I have found them to be very 'soft' and mellow sounding and not as prone to the crisp, twang like Fender teles.  It seems like Ted was able to coax very soft-edged tones from his teles so I would think he would find this sound appealing.

I am curious if Ted had an opinion on them or whether he ever owned one?  I find them really amazing guitars, especially for jazz.  Anyone love for the ASAT around these parts?

I have a fantastic ASAT. Early 90's I think.

I have seen that pic on the Tele forum but didn't know it was a G/L.  They are really great guitars, I think.

Yes. My 'headless' tele picture.It's those pickups that are the giveaway. MFD - 'magnetic field design'. Sort of a cross between standard Tele and P-90's. I changed them out once but thankfully hung on to them. Leo knew what he was doing.
