Leo Fender’s legacy lies in G&L, the Californian company where he said he made his best guitars. The 2018 Fullerton Deluxe ASAT Classic Bluesboy is a product of the famous Fullerton factory, where Leo’s private workshop resides.

The Deluxe ASAT is a modded variation of a timeless design. You’ll get a legendary single cutaway shape and setup with greater versatility in sound.

G&L USA Guitars "The Best Instruments I Ever Made" - Leo Fender

Body and neck

The guitar is made of a gorgeous Swamp Ash body, with a transparent gloss finish that climbs up the hard-rock Maple neck. It looks and feels fantastic.

It has a beautiful, dark 9 ½” radius Rosewood fingerboard that’s extremely comfortable to fret. Embedded are 22 medium-jumbo nickel-silver frets of silky playability. They make for effortless leads.

A bolt-on neck design provides plenty of sustain for long, winding guitar passages.  Have the peace of mind that your guitar remains stable throughout long practice sessions or live shows. This is a guitar built to withstand years of wear.

Sound

In the bridge position you have G&L’s MFD single coil pickup providing a surprisingly sharp attack. Great for blues or even a modern sound.

The modded feature of the Bluesboy is the alnico II neck humbucker, not usually found on G&L ASATs. This creates the unmistakeable warm characteristics associated with these pickups. It pairs nicely with the MFD and makes it an instrument capable of a huge array of tones.

Hardware

It’s equipped with G&L’s classy brass saddles for tight intonation at all times. An ashtray bridge design can feel sharp on some production guitars. Here they’ve mastered the craft. No cost cutting in sight.
