1990 G&L ASAT Bass " lawsuit " bass , Leo Fender's signature on body resulting in threatened lawsuit by Fender

This ASAT bass features an ash body with a premier natural finish. The maple neck is G&L's modern narrow C shape, which has a gloss clear finish and a 1 1/8" nut width for a comfortable feel. The fret board is rosewood with 21 medium jumbo frets, abalone dot inlays and a 7/1/2" radius. For pickups, this bass is way ahead of the pack. There are two G&L MFD L-series humbuckers, which are powerful, versatile, focused pickups. They're wired to an enormous range of switching options. (Be sure to see below for the complete list.) With some quick tweaking, you can get just about any sound out of this instrument.  If you're looking for a versatile and powerful American-made bass, you'll have a tough time finding something for a better price than this ASAT bass.

Essentially an L-2000 packed into an ASAT body and outfitted with a slightly slimmer neck, the ASAT bass is one of the coolest designs around. It's all about extreme flexibility, but presented in the simplest, most stage and studio-ready way possible. Two powerful pickups are hooked up to a plethora of switching options. Go right from in-your-face funk tone to smooth, round low-end that glides along underneath everything. Rock, R&B, funk, pop, blues, jazz - this is an all-purpose bass. Aesthetically vintage but electronically cutting-edge, this bass costs way less than similar American-made designs. Read on for specifics.
