This is a G&L tribute ASAT Classic. What does ASAT stand for?
“ASAT” which is US military shorthand for an “Anti-Satellite” missile.
Leo Fender was fascinated by anything Space Age. SO...
The ASAT Special, as the model became known, features jumbo single-coil Magnetic Field Design™ pickups, each with a narrow bobbin aperture for a coil which is shallow yet wide. In this regard, an MFD™ jumbo single coil is similar to a P-90 or Jazzmaster® pickup, yet the MFD principle provides a punchier bottom end and brighter 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. This is a Basswood body and comes in at 8 pounds and one ounce for playing comfort!
This is a player for any style of music and G&L build quality is world renowned. This beautiful number is available at our shop Now, but it won’t last.
