ASAT Classic as his name suggests is a tele with a classic configuration (pay attention to the bridge - this is the same authentic “box”), one of the most temperamental in the collection. MFD ceramic pickups and a redesigned bridge with brass saddles take nasal, chirping, tele «twangs» to new heights, transforming this guitar into a gentle giant that can go from soft whisper to explosive overdrive in the blink of an eye with just the right hand dynamics.

An instrument with an attitude that is waiting for the owner who has one too. A visual image of ASAT in one of the most delicious colors - the color of "banana delight" or how they call it in America, Butterscotch Blonde. Simple, like all ingenious, design brought to the absolute with half a century of experience of Leo Fender. Strike a few warm, wide, saturated with overtones chords and it will be impossible to put this guitar down.

The Tribute series is the youngest in the G&L lineup. However, they totally nailed it in terms build quality and, importantly, original USA components. Pickups and bridges on all guitars of the Tribute series are exactly the same as on top American instruments.

For online orders we manually pack each guitar into a ton of wraps and carton and also have full insurance for all our shippings. So that you wouldn’t worry that something might happen on the way.

MFD Pickups

As a signature feature of G&L, Magnetic Field Design (MFD) pickups are found in the majority of their electric guitars and basses, regarded as a defining characteristic. By transferring the magnetic field to the top of the pickup rather than the middle, they provide a responsive tone with clarity and a wide frequency response. And Leo Fender did this by constructing the MFD pickups utilizing a ceramic bar magnet (installed beneath each coil), with soft iron pole pieces. MFD pickups also yield about twice the output per wind, making them less noisy than most conventional pickups while allowing for greater overall output. The standout feature of MFD pickups is their adjustable pole pieces, enabling players to fine-tune the height of each pole piece for customized string output and EQ experimentation. As a result, the pickups produce less noise, have a very wide dynamic range, and more output while still retainging the glassy tone which we all love.
