What we say:
At A Glance:
The G&L ASAT® Special just might be the quintessential G&L guitar, viewed by many as Leo’s ultimate single-cutaway.
The ASAT Special features jumbo single-coil Magnetic Field Design™ pickups. The MFD construction provides a punchy bottom end and bright top end sparkling with harmonics. Leo further departed with the past with the addition of his innovative Saddle-Lock™ bridge which transfers string energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument. The result is one of the most versatile guitars ever, serving up ballsy twang to searing blues to smooth jazz tones.
Features We Love:
MFD Long-Pole Split-Coil Pickups
Based on Leo Fender's original Split-Coil prototype pickups. G&L have taken the concept to its full potential by melding the design with Magnetic Field Design technology. Featuring adjustable poles for acute tonal adjustments and that's before the series/parallel switch to blend between buttery and sparkly tones.
G&L Saddle-Lock Bridge
The Saddle-Lock Bridge is another fantastic Leo Fender innovation. Featuring a set of small screws at either side of the bridge to physically press the saddles together. This cultivates the string resonance as one single mass and directs the energy into the grain of the wood. This not only improves the overall tone of the guitar, but gives the guitar sustain to die for.
- Stunning Good Looks
- Great for blues, rock and pop
