G&L ASAT Classic Trans Red, 2006 (No Longer Available)


Instrument Categories: , , ,

The G&L ASAT Classic continues Leo Fender’s original design, the classic ‘T-Style’ introduced in 1951. This example dates to 2006 and sports a Trans-Red finish. The ‘ASAT’ name refers to a an ASAT (Anti-Satellite) missile system!

Drawing closely from Leo’s classic layout, this G&L ASAT Classic pairs a Swamp Ash body with a Mahogany neck with colour-matched headstock. Sealed G&L branded tuners are at the head, leading to the familiar ‘ashtray’ style string-through-body bridge with six fully adjustable brass saddles.

The electronics are in an H-S format, with an uncovered humbucker at the neck and a single coil pickup with adjustable polepieces at the bridge. These lead to a selector switch and master Volume and Tone controls, very much in Leo’s ‘T-Style’ wiring.

This ASAT Classic is in very good, clean condition with only very light wear. The finish is in particularly good condition with just a small touch-up on the neck. Unusually, the colour coats extend to the Mahogany neck and the front of the headstock. The action is comfortable and the guitar plays cleanly.

The original rectangular molded G&L branded case is included.
