 The G&L ASAT Classic ‘S’ is a factory-modded version of Leo Fender's final word on the traditional single-cutaway bolt-on axe (George Fullerton & Leo Fender founded the company in the late '70s, hence the name G&L). 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 pickup arrangement, commonly known as the "Nashville Tele", 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.
