The legacy of the legendary Leo Fender, G&L Guitars continues to produce exceptional instruments in the 21st Century - closely adhering to its iconic founder's vision. A cornerstone of their electric guitar lineup, the Fullerton Deluxe ASAT Classic is a US-made T-style guitar that fully embraces vintage styling and modern functionality in equal measure.
This particular version of the ASAT Classic comes equipped with Leo Fender-designed Alnico pickups that provide a vintage voice bursting with jangly, harmonic overtones.
Swamp Ash Body
The G&L USA Fullerton Deluxe ASAT Classic Alnico features a Swamp Ash body, with its gorgeous grain shining through. This choice of material isn't just for the sake of aesthetics, as Swamp Ash delivers a balanced sound with warm lows, crisp highs and lots of natural resonance. Its light weight is another advantage, making this guitar a perfect option for live performance.
'Modern Classic' Neck
The ASAT's bolt-on Hard Rock Maple neck offers a bright and snappy response, giving notes plenty of bite and upper mid-range vibrancy. If you're looking for an instrument that can easily cut through in a mix, this is more than capable!
Featuring G&L's "Modern Classic" neck profile, this guitar provides a comfortable and fast feel that contemporary players will adore, whilst not alienating traditionalists looking for a nostalgic touch.
Leo Fender-designed Alnico Pickups
G&L's ASAT Classic Alnico comes equipped with a pair of Leo Fender-designed Alnico V single-coils, refined by legendary pickup wizard Paul Cagon. Ultra-clear and projecting that iconic T-type "twang", these pickups have a slightly meatier sound than conventional single-coils and there's better tonal balance between the bridge and neck pickups.
In true T-style tradition, the G&L Fullerton Deluxe ASAT Classic Alnico features a boxed-style bridge that vintage aficionados will appreciate. The '50s vibe remains intact with its brass saddles too, but with separate saddles for each string - you can individually intonate them to guarantee great tuning stability across all areas of the fingerboard.
The ASAT's 100% natural bone nut enhances its overall sustain, whilst allowing the strings to glide freely so that they don't snag when performing string bends - great for tuning stability. With all of these thoughtful appointments, it's clear that the G&L USA Fullerton Deluxe ASAT Classic Alnico is a pro-grade guitar.
