Eventually giving us his definitive take of this guitar with the introduction of the G&L ASAT Special.

Crafting the Tribute ASAT Special
Basswood has been used for the body of the Tribute ASAT Special which features an iconic single cutaway profile.
Not just there to look good; this cutaway allows for easy access to the upper frets, perfect for reaching those high notes during a solo.
Attached to the body via traditional bolt-on construction is a hard-rock Maple neck with a comfortable medium C profile.
Atop the neck is a Rosewood fretboard with 22 medium jumbo nickel frets for all-around great playability.
Jumbo MFD Pickups
Designed by Leo Fender and made in Fullerton, California, a pair of jumbo G&L MFD single coil pickups give this guitar its fantastic voice.
These jumbo single-coil Magnetic Field Design pickups have narrow bobbin apertures with shallow yet wide coils.
While this makes them somewhat similar to P-90 and Jazzmaster pickups, the expertise behind the MFD pickups means they give you punchier low end and brighter high end with rich harmonics.
With the three-way pickup selector, you can choose between using either of the two pickups or a combination of the two while simple volume and tone controls allow you to quickly dial in the perfect sound you’re looking for.
On the body of the Fullerton Deluxe ASAT Special, you’ll find the innovative Saddle-Lock bridge, designed by Leo Fender.
The six individual saddles found in the Saddle-Lock bridge offer incredibly precise intonation and actually lock onto the strings.
This eliminates side to side movement which deadens your tone while the bridge transfers your string vibration directly into the body of the guitar.
With the string energy passed into the guitar in the direction of the grain, you get fantastic resonance for incredible tone.
Up on the headstock, you’ll find six sealed-back 18:1 ratio tuning machines providing incredible precise and secure tuning of your strings.
