Detailed Description

G&L USA 2012 Black Ice Collection ASAT Classic Bluesboy - Black Ice

The new Black Ice Collection takes G&L’s Nearly Naked™ (NENA) finish in a whole new direction with a bad-ass look for players ready to grab the spotlight. Like the 2012 Special Collection, Black Ice models feature G&L’s newly-developed NENA finish applied over premium two-piece swamp ash bodies. This time around, no pickguard comes between your eyes and the dramatic Black Ice finish.

Having worked with a variety of staining and burnishing techniques, G&L craftsmen developed the Nearly Naked finish blending old-world techniques with modern finish technology. While the NENA vision was all about highlighting the natural beauty of swamp ash, artists never stop exploring. Before long G&L master painter Malcolm McLamore had developed Black Ice, a sleek matte black base with silver highlights embedded in the sweeping grain of the swamp ash. You’ll be forgiven for thinking such an intricate finish may be delicate, but the Nearly Naked Black Ice finish is surprisingly durable yet reveals the wood’s natural texture to the touch.

The G&L ASAT® Classic Bluesboy™ is a factory-modded version of Leo’s final word on the traditional single-cutaway bolt-on axe. For players looking for the unmistakable warmth of a classic humbucker in the neck position, the Bluesboy delivers with a well-balanced pairing of a Seymour Duncan SH-55 Seth Lover alnico humbucker and a single-coil G&L Magnetic Field Design™ bridge pickup designed by Leo Fender†.

Framed in a classic boxed-steel bridge, the single-coil MFD™ bridge pickup delivers crisp attack with complex harmonics while individual brass saddles offer modern levels of intonation refinement. Flip to the neck ‘bucker and you’ll discover all the charismatic warmth you could ask for. Put ‘em together and you’ll find yourself immersed in exploring the limits of this guitar’s surprising versatility.

This latter-day Leo axe is shows its darker side thanks to a Nearly Naked™ (NENA) Black Ice finish over its swamp ash body. This Bluesboy features a hard-rock maple neck with an easy-playing satin neck finish, while its 12" radius lets you bend notes deeply and its Plek-dressed medium-jumbo nickel frets deliver silky playability. The moment you open the luxurious Tolex hardshell case made by G&G Quality Case, you’ll be greeted with a stunning instrument and delicious aroma that’ll have your pulse racing.
