❌SOLD❌ G&L ASAT Solidbody Electric Sunburst, 2002

❌SOLD❌  G&L ASAT Solidbody Electric Sunburst, 2002

Taking very clear cues from the classic and proven 1950’s designs, the G&L ASAT looks like an ‘improved’ Telecaster. Notably, the ‘Hard Tail’ bridge addresses a number of vibration issues by adding a set screw to the treble side of the bridge housing. This set screw pushes against the saddles, so that once the saddles are properly adjusted, they lock in place. As well, the larger single coil ‘MFD’ or ‘Modified Field Design’ pickups are Leo’s design, combing ceramic under-coil magnets with soft iron adjustable magnets for each string.

Ibanez 2461 Johnny Smith ‘Lawsuit Era’ Archtop Electric Natural, 1975

Ibanez 2461 Johnny Smith 'Lawsuit Era' Archtop Electric Natural, 1975

Here we have an Ibanez 2461 Johnny Smith style, full body cutaway archtop, built in Japan likely during 1975. The model was built until 1977. Typical of the early 1975 period, it has no serial number – these started appearing on the back of the headstock late 1975. It is largely original, though it has a slight modification – the output jack was a mini-plug mounted on the pickguard, and this was removed and a standard 1/4 inch jack installed to the lower treble side.

Fender Telecaster Rosewood Fingerboard Sunburst, 1978

Fender Telecaster Rosewood Fingerboard Sunburst, 1978

Here’s a very nice, clean Fender Telecaster with Rosewood fingerboard and Sunburst finish coming to us from the year 1978! Leo Fender introduced the Telecaster as the Broadcaster in 1950, but rapidly had to drop the name as Gretsch was using it for a line of drums. ‘NoCasters’ were shipped for a short while during 1951 until new non-infringing ‘Telecaster’ decals and other materials were prepared. Since then, many changes have been made to the instrument without significant alteration to the core design.
