G&L USA ASAT Special 3 Limited Edition Electric Guitar Gloss BlackMidlothian Music values the importance of quality in craftsmanship, which is one of the many reasons why we are proud to be an Authorized G&L® Dealer. This product was made in the United States. This item is new.
G&L is a master at improving on the classics without losing the fundamental point of why the instrument is considered a classic in the first place. This ASAT Special 3, created specifically for Midlothian Music, demonstrates this all the way down to the sophisticated Gloss Black color and the three MFD Jumbo pickups.
As a rebuild on the legendary Telecaster foundation in the 1980's, G&L's ASAT is the perfect bolt-on T neck design. This Special 3's Hard-rock Maple neck is bolted into an alder body and includes professional features like the Saddle-Lock bridge and the Classic C neck profile. Tried and true! You'll hear and feel the exemplary craftmanship over and over again.
The most extraordinary thing about the ASAT 3 lies in the 3 MFD Jumbo single-coil pickups that feature a reverse wound middle pickup, which means in positions 2 & 4 on the 5 way switch the pickups work in tandem to cancel hum, effectively operating as a humbucker. In addition, utilizing the push/pull tone knob engages ALL THREE pickups on at once, or the unique neck and bridge combination depending on the selector switch position. You'll be able to coax the fattest, thickest Fender-like tone from the Jumbo single coils you can imagine.
