My guitar collection - G&L


A gorgeous ASAT Signature built by G&L when it was run by Dale Hyatt after Leo had passed away. The gold Leo Fender signature decal on the Black finish of the (rare for the period) soft maple body looks as good as on my ASAT III Signature HSS and ASAT Classic w/gold Leo Fender Vibrato. But now it is surrounded by chrome hardware, including a Dual-Fulcrum Vibrato (DFV), and connected to a 7½” radius hard-rock maple #2 neck. The controls and associated ASAT wiring harness are already identical to the pre-BBE ASAT Classic. As one can read about here, all ASAT Signatures, including this guitar, the ASAT III Signature HSS, and the ASAT Signature ‘500’ employee guitar have an idiosyncratic headstock with some unique decals. Otherwise, more information on the current ASAT Special model can be found at:

The story behind this guitar


Serial number:

Neck date:

Body date:


Another guitar I bought from Jim Patnoude. And what a beautiful example it is. We made a gentleman’s agreement on the deal in March 2016, and the guitar showed up at the end of April. A wonderful sounding instrument with one important trait. It was assembled in the period between Leo’s passing in March and the day in November when Dale retired. As expected for its production date, the 6.8kΩ resistor is no longer present.
