G&L ASAT Special - 3-Tone Sunburst
This is simply a great guitar: It's simple but gorgeous ... impossible to walk by without wanting to pick it up. Looks-wise, it's Merle Haggard-meets-Bill Frisell, but tonally, it will knock you out.
These large Magnetic Field Design pickups are incredible sounding single-coil pickups—tight and punchy, plenty of definition, and a smooth, round depth with surprisngly low noise. Also, the cast brass patented G&L Saddle Lock tailpiece is clean, unobtrusive and massive for ultimate tone.
This guitar can be a bluesman's dream, a chickenpicker's delight, and can even work its magic for jazz. And of course, it can rock and roll, too. This G&L is the pinnacle of Leo Fender's dedication to your electric guitar dreams. Comes with a hardshell case.
Why We Like G&L Guitars
The only person who could improve on Fender’s original designs was Leo Fender, himself. So a few years after CBS bought the Fender guitar brand, Leo and his old friend, George Fullerton, started G&L (George & Leo). G&L represents the evolution of Fender’s own classic designs—a better player’s guitar—with great-sounding pickups, sweet finishes and tight quality control. G&L guitars and basses are built to very high standards—Leo Fender’s.
Also, the G&L factory is on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California. They literally put the company on the map, and it's now referred to as the Birthplace of Bolt-on. Can’t beat that.
