Lefty electric with dual jumbo single-coils for big, bright tones.
The left-handed G&L ASAT Special just might be the quintessential G&L guitar, viewed by many as the ultimate single-cutaway. Back in 1985, this model was launched under the G&L Broadcaster name, which prompted a response from Fred Gretsch of Gretsch Guitars over the name as Broadkaster is owned by Gretsch. The name then became “ASAT” which is US military shorthand for an “Anti-Satellite” missile. The ASAT Special, as the model became known, features jumbo single-coil Magnetic Field Design pickups, each with a narrow bobbin aperture for a coil which is shallow yet wide. In this regard, an MFD jumbo single coil is similar to a P-90 or Jazzmaster pickup, but the MFD principle provides a punchier bottom end and brighter top end that sparkles with harmonics. With the addition of his innovative Saddle-Lock bridge which transfers string energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument, the ASAT Special is one of the most versatile guitars ever, serving up everything from ballsy twang to searing blues and smooth jazz tones.
