Ruined by Poor Quality Control

19.08.2016
I don't know if I just got a duff one, but the quality issues on this guitar really let it down.
Features and sound are - or would be - top notch, especially for the price. The body looks lovely, the pickups are versatile and punchy. The guitar is light yet well balanced, and the hardware is all excellent.
But the neck... oh I've never had a worse one. Frets up to the 12th all buzz on every string, apart from at the 9th fret. There is a serious S-bend to the neck, fixable only by changing the neck.
The electronics are borderline too, with the tone pot especially scratchy.
Lovely looking, but unplayable... so it loses stars for 'Features' and 'Sounds' for that reason too. There are better guitars for the money.

Good base with weakness in detail

Andreas120, 14.09.2014
I bought this guitar for the following reasons:
- Flourish and timeless, reduced to the essentials
- Materials used (mahogany body with P90 PU's)
- 12 inch handlebrettradius, for easy solving and largely slide-free bending
- Reviews

In principle the Asat Junior offers a good basis for the intended style (blues or Bluesrock).
Annoying, however, are the processing deficiencies, respectively the quite unloved end quality.
Of course, there must be a difference between the significantly more expensive USA version and the Far East version, but other manufacturers get the m. E. better.
The body has white spots in two varnishes. In addition, the lacquer is very sensitive. Even the occasional wiping with a cotton cloth over the corpus, quills the soft lacquer with visible scratches.
The fingerboard I had to work on the handleboard, after the 22nd fret, because after the milling one had not even bothered to edge the edges a bit. There stood the bare wood chips.
The saddle notches are much too high notched. This is not a slip-up, because a G & L Fallout, which I had just before, was no better.
But be careful: the saddle material is extremely soft! A filing too much and the string is on the first fret.
The strings have to be adjusted unnecessarily high, despite the 12-inch neck radius, since the high E-string will bend quickly on some frets during bending. Strangely enough, this is only the case in certain single frets, which indicates that the frets have not been dressed properly. Unfortunately the G & L does not have the advantage of the 12 neck profile. The setting of the strings corresponds more to a 7.25 inch or a poor 9.5 inch radius guitar.
The P90 cartridges hang like something wrong in the wood, which does not harm the sound, but the optics.
The sound is nuanced and differentiated and together with the P90 PU you can create beautiful bluesy lead and rhythm sounds. This is also the only reason why I did not return the G & L Junior II.

Actually, you would need at least 200.- Euro in the hand in order to get the guitars to the guitar to the level, that other manufacturers with even cheaper guitars directly from the factory, for example, my Fender Jaguar made in China. Unpacked, new strings on it, the strings set and played. Perfectly grooved saddle, the leashes evenly level, a workmanship without defects and the whole half the price of the G & L. As I said, it is also different.
