Sold-G&L ASAT Classic S Shoreline Gold Loaded with Options!
CornerStone Music is proud to be an Authorized Premier G&L Dealer.
This G&L is loaded with great options, but priced as though it weren’t! With the rear body contour for added playing comfort, the locking tuners for more tuning stability, the clear satin neck finish, and of course the middle pickup for added tone option make this guitar a bargain!
The G&L ASAT Classic ‘S’ is a factory-modded version of Leo Fender’s final word on the traditional single-cutaway bolt-on guitar. First created in 2004 by the G&L Custom Creations team, the ASAT Classic ‘S’ later joined the line as a standard model in 2008.
The basic idea for this kind of arrangement has been long established in the Nashville session player scene, where players often install a Strat middle pickup in the middle position of a Telecaster and swap the 3-position pickup selector with a 5-way unit.
Back in 2004, The G&L Custom Creations Department decided to build an instrument similar to the formula adopted by the Nashville guys but with a distinctly G&L flavor with ASAT Classic MFD pickups in place of Alnico Tele pickups, and the S-500 MFD in place of the Strat pickup. The CCD team decided to ice the cake with a push/pull tone pot that enables additional pickup combinations of neck and bridge or all three pickups together for a unique sonic depth that G&L players love.
The “S” designation comes from both internal designation for this instrument, due to its use of the S-500 middle pickup, and “Session” in homage to the origin of this guitar configuration.
It of course comes with a luxurious hard case.
