G&L’s Quintessential T-style Guitar

The Tribute ASAT Special is G&L’s quintessential single-cutaway bolt-on — its authoritative voice was tailor-made for authoritative rock ‘n’ roll. This balanced-sounding solidbody electric guitar is teeming with sustain, thanks to its poplar body, while its medium "C"-shaped neck and 9.5-inch-radius maple fingerboard provide supreme comfort and effortless playability. Twin soapbar-style single-coil Magnetic Field Design pickups yield a high-octane snarl with screaming harmonics, while a Leo Fender-designed G&L Saddle-Lock bridge ensures maximum comfort and singing sustain. The G&L Tribute ASAT Special includes sealed tuners and an eye-grabbing tortoise pickguard.

The ASAT Special features a poplar body — a tonewood prized for its balanced blend of lows, mids, and highs. This electric guitar’s rock-solid hard maple neck boasts a comfortable medium "C" profile and an easy-playing 9.5-inch-radius maple fingerboard that’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face. The guitarists here at Sweetwater appreciate the classic playability of the ASAT Special.

Soapbar-style pickups serve up a myriad of snarling tones

If standard Magnetic Field Design single-coils are too tame for you, you’ll really dig the G&L Tribute ASAT Special’s soapbar-style pickups. These jumbo-sized pups yield more output than G&L’s regular MFD single-coils, along with an in-your-face snarl that will lend authority to every note you play. These pickups exhibit more midrange than vintage Kalamazoo-built soapbar models, while maintaining that legendary design’s coveted harmonic complexity. The ASAT Special’s neck pickup produces a gorgeous bluesy crunch, while its bridge pickup delivers maximum spank and clarity — a must for leads that cut through a busy mix. The ASAT Special’s jumbo single-coil Magnetic Field Design pickups are punchy and well-focused, with truckloads of fat warmth and the perfect amount of top-end sparkle.

Leo's favorite creations

After founding two hugely successful guitar brands and consulting on the side, Leo Fender felt that he had unfinished business in the guitar world. Together with partner George Fullerton, G&L opened for business in 1979 and incorporated innovative design elements into their instruments, such as the Magnetic Field Design pickups, Dual-Fulcrum Vibrato, Saddle-Lock Bridge, and Bi-cut neck design. Leo was so proud of his new instruments that he famously declared that G&L's "are the best instruments I have ever made." Play a G&L today and experience the magic for yourself.
