The Distinctive Sound of Alnico Magnet Pickups Now Available in the ASAT Classic

While  the G&L ASAT® Classic is Leo’s final word on the traditional  single-cutaway bolt-on axe with its Magnetic Field Design single-coil  pickups, the new ASAT Classic  Alnico has arrived to blend latter-day-Leo with uncompromising Alnico  sonic flavor.  The single-coil Alnico V bridge pickup created by Leo  Fender and specced by G&L’s Paul Gagon belts out meaty twang that  that’ll stop you in your tracks.  Flip to the Alnico  V neck pickup and you’ll discover Gagon’s spec offers a fuller tone  that leaves those anemic old pickups in the dust.  What’s more, the two  pickups pair beautifully for an exceptionally sweet, jangly tone  bursting with harmonics.


Made  in the historic G&L facility on Fender Avenue in Fullerton,  California, the ASAT Classic Alnico is available with a wide range of  custom options including  body and neck woods, body and neck finishes, neck profiles and  pickguard materials.  MSRP for the ASAT Classic Alnico starts at $1,500.

To  commemorate the initial production of these Alnico pickups, G&L has  commissioned a special 100 instrument production of ASAT Classic Alnico  Launch Edition guitars.   The Launch Edition features a Sugar Pine body and coated in a gorgeous  new Autumn Burst finish.  The combination of a Sugar Pine body and  Alnico magnet pickups harkens back to early prototype instruments  created by Leo Fender:  this is a thoughtful remix that  blends the best of old-school Leo with 21st century G&L quality and playability including Plek fret processing.  MSRP for the ASAT Classic Launch Edition is $1,800.
