Detailed Description

G&L USA 2012 Black Ice Collection ASAT Deluxe II - 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.

ASAT Deluxe II makes its second appearance since it debuted with the Korina Collection in 2011. Essentially a cross between ASAT Deluxe and a 1998 ASAT Junior, the Deluxe II was a natural for the Korina Collection and a great addition to the Black Ice Collection.

A time-honored G&L pairing of Seymour Duncan buckers, '59 at the neck and a JB at the bridge, serve as the basis for classic-leaning humbucker tones, reinforced by the Tone Pros locking tailpiece. This is contrasted by a two-piece Swamp Ash body, Hard-rock Maple neck and 25 1/2" scale which dial up the sort of snap and attack you might expect from a Leo design.

This ASAT Deluxe II shows its darker side thanks to a Nearly Naked™ (NENA) Black Ice finish over its swamp ash body. It 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.
