G&L “Tribute Series” ASAT Junior II Electric Guitar -Trans Red

$699.99

The ASAT Junior II carries two Paul Gagon-designed P90 pickups, specially spec-ed to deliver stellar tones in each position and with matched output for more truly usable rhythm/lead switching. No more fumbling with the volume trying to find balance between the P90s.

The Junior II features an easy-playing, medium-C profile neck with 12” radius and 1 5/8” nut width for a classic ASAT feel that greets the hand like an old friend. Add on Tone-Pros bridge/tailpiece hardware, delicious Trans Red-finished Mahogany body and Hard Rock Maple neck with Brazilian Cherry board and you’ve got one versatile ASAT that effortlessly covers a wide range of sonic territory.

The Junior II has popped up before in short-run Custom Creations models made at G&L’s Fullerton, California shop, but this is the first time it’s been this widely available. On top of that, it’s part of G&L’s Tribute Series, which has been garnering rave reviews for more than a decade thanks to its solid combination of tone, quality and value.

Yet again the ASAT has proven that versatility is deep in its DNA.

G&L Guitars

Leo Fender† passed away on a rainy day in March 1991, an event that shook the music world: the father of modern music was gone. It was on that very day that Leo had completed his last prototype, testament to his passion for improving his instruments. “G&L Guitars and Basses are the best instruments I have ever made.” – Leo Fender Why did Leo feel this way? Because he had endowed G&Ls with tone and technology breakthroughs that players still rave about. For example:
  • The Dual-Fulcrum Vibrato that’s super-smooth and more stable.
  • The Saddle-Lock Bridge that transfers more resonance to the guitar body.
  • MFD pickups which are uniquely clear, warm, expressive and wide-range.
  • The PTB tone system that offers treble and bass cut for more versatility.
Leo wanted to be sure that G&L would shine even brighter when he was gone. He knew that he must look after his people, so that they would feel free to build on his legacy of quality and innovation. His wife shared this commitment, and she chose Leo’s friend John C. McLaren to assume ownership of G&L and to expand and develop it in a way that would please Leo. John shared Leo’s view of G&L as a maker of superb instruments, all lovingly crafted for discerning musicians. So do John’s sons, Dave and Johnny McLaren. That’s why now more than ever, G&Ls are widely praised for their superb quality and tone. And thanks to a special blend of traditional craftsmanship and pioneering technology, G&L instruments deliver unsurpassed performance and value. G&L continues to make instruments with dedication and great skill in Leo’s historic factory on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California – The Birthplace of the Bolt-On. And inspiration is always close at hand, as Leo’s private workshop, the center of his creative universe, remains as it was on his last day and has been visited by luminaries from throughout the music world. “When my brother Johnny and I were young, Leo was always kind to us and we learned so much from him. Today, we and our team are committed to preserving the memory and rich legacy of Leo Fender – and this means refining and innovating guitars and basses as Leo would have demanded. As my father said shortly after Leo’s passing, ‘We always want to feel that Leo Fender would be proud of today’s G&L.’” –Dave McLaren, President
