2015 Tribute Ascari in Transparent Red with Seymour Duncan "Slash" Humbucker Pickup
Inspired by a prototype drawing done three decades ago by G&L co-founder George Fullerton representing Leo Fenderís vision for G&Lís first 24ĺĒ scale, three-tuners-to-a-side guitar, the Ascari was designed jointly by G&Lís longtime VP of engineering, Paul Gagon, and his close friend and former collaborator, Grover Jackson, founder of Jackson Guitars. Breaking new ground for G&L, the Ascari design also features a set neck rather than a bolt-on, and it is fitted with custom humbucker pickups designed by Paul Gagnon. Other features include a mahogany body with a carved Flamed maple top and transparent red finish, Tone-Pros locking C-TPFP bridge and CT1 tailpiece, and a fast playing modern slim C-shape mahogamy neck with a 12" radius rosewood fingerboard and 22 frets.
This guitar is in excellent condition with only a couple of minor blemishes, and it features a modification - the Paul Gagnon designed AW4368C bridge pickup (included with this guitar) has been replaced with a Seymour Duncan APH-2 Alnico II Pro "Slash" humbucker. Otherwise, its playability is superb and its sound is solid as a rock.
From the Seymour Duncan website:
"When Slash was given the honor of having a Gibson Les Paul Signature model built, we sent over the same Alnico 2 Pro humbuckers that he has used for decades. Turns out, the new guitars sounded noticeably different than the original. So we accepted the challenge to make him a new pickup that would make all of his new signature guitars sound just like the original AFD Les Paul. The result is the Slash Signature Model humbucker. We used a different mag wire and winding spec, that, when combined with the alnico 2 bar magnet, provided exactly what was needed to push a stock Les Paul toward that familiar sustain, crunch, and midrange that was so characteristic of the tone of Slashís original Derrig Les Paul copy. The Slash humbucker set is hand built in Santa Barbara the same way we built his originals in the 80s, using a nickel silver bottom plate with long mounting legs, single conductor braided lead wire, maple spacer, paper tape, and wax potting."
