Traditional Leo Fender styling and modern innovations.
This finely crafted solidbody has an incredible range of tones, gorgeous woods, and premium hardware. It features 3 G&L Magnetic Field Design Z-coil single-coil pickups with noise canceling, Schaller tuners, and G&L's innovative Saddle Lock bridge. Deluxe appointments and craftsmanship throughout.
The patented Magnetic Field Design® pickups use a ceramic bar magnet installed underneath each coil, with soft iron adjustable pole pieces to transfer the magnetic field to the surface of the pickup. By contrast, traditional Alnico type pickups, such as used in the Legacy and George Fullerton models, use nonadjustable Alnico pole pieces leaving the only adjustment being pickup height. The Magnetic Field Design has this adjustment, but further offers individual adjustment of each pole piece, letting the player effectively adjust the output of each string on each pickup. Magnetic Field Design (MFD) yield about twice the output per wind, making the pickup quieter while allowing a greater overall output. The sound of Magnetic Field pickups is slightly warmer with a broader frequency response. One major Nashville session guitarist remarked that G&L Magnetic Field single-coil pickups sounded as balanced and sweet as his favorite old vintage Alnico equipped axe. The difference is that the MFD pickups sound that good right into his amp without all the EQ tweaking of his mixing console that made his other guitar sound so good. When he ran his G&L though his studio rig, he was truly amazed at the rich and warm, yet clear and sparkly sound.

Well, Mr. Fullerton and Mr. Fender put together one dandy guitar in the ASAT. The Z3's are noiseless as advertised and sound as clean as any guitar I've ever played. As awesome as it sounds...and as well put together as it is, it's the looks that really set it off. Gorgeous swamp ash with a blueburst finish makes this thing sweet to look at. It could use independent vol/tone control, but other than that no complaints what so ever.
This guitar has no features other than the 3 Z-coils that sound amazing. I traded Les Paul Standard in for it and, while I would never knock the Les Paul, I am thrilled with the decision. One volume knob and one tone knob and perfection make this guitar the one I will play for ever. P.S. the Z-coils can get you that Humbucker sound when needed...
This is what the telecaster should be. It's not a hardtail strat, but a MUCH more versatile and humbucking tele. Brilliant.
