When Leo Fender launched the G&L L-2000 bass in 1980 it was clear he was ready to make history all over again. With such a wide range of tones came from a single bass, the L-2000 bass has continued to win the hearts of bassists of every musical style and taste. The ASAT guitar came around in 1986 and it didn't take Leo long to apply this body shape to a bass. The G&L ASAT Semi Hollow Bass is essentially a L-2000 packed into an ASAT body shape with a narrower 1 1/2" nut width to help balance the instrument. The result is one of the coolest looking basses ever to come from the mind of Leo Fender with all the power and flexibility of a L-2000. Tom Hamilton of Aerosmith has been a fan of the ASAT bass since the 1990's and has his own signature model.
The foundation of the G&L ASAT Bass is a pair of G&L Magnetic Field Design humbuckers backed by the flexible Tri-Tone control system. This combination provides the versatility that will let you find your tone no matter what kind of bass line you are grooving to. The Tri-Tone system features Three (3) mini toggles for pickup selection, series / parallel signal routing, and active / passive operation. The Three (3) knobs control Volume, Treble, and Bass. With all this under the hood the G&L ASAT Bass will fit in any situation from classic R&B to power-packed rock or poppin' funk. The ASAT Bass features the innovative Leo Fender designed Saddle Lock bridge to transfer your strings energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument. The standard neck is a comfortable C-shape checking in with a comfortable 9 1/2" radius and 21 Jescar 57110 medium-jumbo nickel-silver frets that make for silky playability.
Each G&L ASAT Bass is made in Leo Fenders historic G&L facility on Fender Avenue in Fullerton California. Choose from a wide selection of custom option including body and neck woods, body and neck finishes, and neck profiles.
