The G&L ASAT Classic ‘S’ is a factory-modded version of Leo’s final word on the traditional single-cutaway bolt-on axe. First created in 2004 by the G&L Custom Creations team, the ASAT Classic ‘S’ later joined the line as a standard model in 2008.

The basic idea for this kind of arrangement has been long established in the Nashville session player scene, where players often install a Strat middle pickup in the middle position of a Telecaster and swap the 3-position pickup selector with a 5-way unit.

Back in 2004, The G&L Custom Creations Department decided to build an instrument similar to the formula adopted by the Nashville guys but with a distinctly G&L flavor with ASAT Classic MFD pickups in place of Alnico Tele pickups, and the S-500 MFD in place of the Strat pickup. The CCD team decided to ice the cake with a push/pull tone pot that functions the same way as the S-500’s mini-toggle switch, enabling additional pickup combinations of neck+bridge or all three pickups together for a unique sonic depth that G&L players love.

The “S” designation comes from both internal designation for this instrument, due to its use of the S-500 middle pickup, and “Session” in homage to the origin of this guitar configuration.
