    Product Description

    G&L is the final legacy of legendary guitar builder Leo Fender. Creator of so many iconic instruments, Leo continued to improve on these designs when he founded G&L in 1979. 

    The ASAT Classic is an evolution of the classic T-type guitar that Leo originated, and this Bluesboy version has the addition of a humbucker in the neck.

    Body and Neck

    The Basswood body on this guitar keeps it nice and light making it comfortable to play, especially for long periods and while standing; additionally, some say Basswood lends a balanced yet warm tone to guitars.

    The ASAT Classic Bluesboy has a comfortable “Medium C” neck profile which is easy to play and has a 9” fingerboard radius. This radius is slightly more curved than most modern fingerboards and makes fretting chords a breeze without compromising your ability to play leads and bends. The maple fingerboard makes for a very smooth playing experience and it has been said that maple adds a snap and brightness to the tone.

    Pickups and Hardware

    The bridge pickup is a Leo Fender-designed Magnetic Field Design (MFD) single coil. This pickup is both hotter than a traditional Alnico single-coil and has the added benefit of less hum! In the neck is a G&L Alnico humbucker to give you the option of thicker, warmer tones. This setup is highly versatile – from Jazz to Funk to Blues and Rock the ASAT Classic Bluesboy can handle it all!

    The hardware is fairly true to the original design, however, the use of individual brass saddles is a great feature as is brass is known for its resonance and the individual saddle design makes for improved intonation and greater tuning stability.

    Here's What G&L Say About the ASAT Classic Bluesboy

    The G&L ASAT® Classic Bluesboy™ is a factory-modded version of Leo’s final word on the traditional single-cutaway bolt-on axe. For players looking for the unmistakable warmth of a classic humbucker in the neck position, the Bluesboy delivers with a well-balanced pairing of a G&L Alnico humbucker and a single-coil G&L Magnetic Field Design™ bridge pickup designed by Leo Fender†.

    Framed in a classic boxed-steel bridge, the single-coil MFD™ bridge pickup delivers crisp attack with complex harmonics while individual brass saddles offer modern levels of intonation refinement. Flip to the neck ‘bucker and you’ll discover all the charismatic warmth you could ask for. Put ‘em together and you’ll find yourself immersed in exploring the limits of this guitar’s surprising versatility.

    The Tribute® Series ASAT Classic Bluesboy is dripping with mojo at a price attainable for every working musician. Once you play a G&L Tribute Series, you’ll never look back.

    Early days, but seems like a solidly pleasing T shape. Needs a little dressing, and the switch gear/pots seem fine; on the other versions I tried they were not. Combination of hum bucker & single coil sounds smashing, and will probably suit an amplifier upgrade....
