My guitar collection - G&L


‘The Rembrandt’ is G&L’s first Leo Fender Signature model. And the only true one at that. Inspired by this unique instrument, Dale Hyatt came up with the (Leo Fender) Signature series using decals of Leo’s autograph instead, starting in late-1988. The ASAT Signature was the first. In the process, instead of the then customary all black hardware on an ASAT, chrome hardware with a white enameled aluminum pickguard was introduced too, even though the pickup covers were still black. This particular ASAT has a swamp ash body with 2 Jumbo Magnetic Field Design (MFD) pickups. As expected for the Cherryburst finish, the signature decal has a white font. The hard-rock maple #2 neck has a matching 7½” maple fingerboard. More information on the current ASAT Special model is found at:

Found this beautiful Cherryburst specimen at Carson Jewelry in Carson, CA. Not the most obvious place but it worked. An almost pristine example where you even wonder if it ever was played. My wife’s reaction? ”You have that one already!” True in that I have another ash Cherryburst Signature. But that is one of these rare October 1991 ASAT Classic Signatures. Easy to mistake the one for the other if you do not pay attention to pups and bridge. It is worth noting this ASAT Signature still has the “traditional” Broadcaster wiring harness. Note the chrome bridge and white guard while still using black pickup covers. Compare that with my ASAT Special with white covers. Sound report? Rock solid!
