A good friend of mine decided he would like  to have his G & L ASAT contoured for more comfortable playing and routed for a humbucker in the bridge position. I rounded and relieved the waist, lower bout, and the backside of the horn to facilitate playing high up the neck.  The original flat finish was a little opaque and obscured a really nice ash body but after filling the grain with a dark filler and finishing in transparent red mahogany the beauty of the wood really came through. With the addition of a custom cut pickguard and a half tele bridge it was ready to go.  This is a really nice sounding guitar with a great feel.
