Used 2000 G&L ASAT Classic serial number CLF17179. This guitar is in excellent condition, neck and frets are fine, cosmetically quite clean. The figured maple neck with vintage tint is absolutely beautiful!
The ASAT Classic is Leo Fender’s final word on the traditional single-cutaway bolt-on axe. Several improvements move the ASAT design further ahead of the earlier “Tele”, most notably the single-coil Magnetic Field Design pickups.
The patented Magnetic Field Design pickups use a ceramic bar magnet installed underneath each coil, with soft iron adjustable pole pieces to transfer the magnetic field to the surface of the pickup. Traditional single coil Alnico type pickups use nonadjustable Alnico pole pieces leaving the only adjustment being pickup height. The Magnetic Field Design has this adjustment, but further offers individual adjustment of each pole piece, letting the player effectively adjust the output of each string on each pickup. Magnetic Field Design (MFD) yield about twice the output per wind, making the pickup quieter while allowing a greater overall output. The sound of Magnetic Field pickups is slightly warmer with a broader frequency response.
If you’ve been considering a new twist on a proven design but want something more progressive, the playability and tone of this guitar could be just the right fit.

*Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.
