Please refer to the picture of the build sheet for the exact specifications on this instrument.
The G&L ComancheÂ® is Leoâ€™s final word on the traditional double-cutaway bolt-on axe, and the ASAT Z-3 is like packing a Comanche into an ASAT body. Like the Comanche, the first thing youâ€™ll notice about the ASAT Z-3 is the distinctive shape of the Magnetic Field Designâ„¢ Z-Coilâ„¢ pickups designed by Leo Fenderâ€ himself. These pickups deliver a bright and sparkly top end while offering a robust bottom end, all without any 60-cycle hum.
Youâ€™ll find plenty of power in the Z-coil pickups, but whatâ€™s surprising is how glassy and detailed they become as you roll back the volume. Whatâ€™s more, the ASAT Z-3 includes a push/pull tone pot to allow neck+bridge or all three pickups together. In a pinch, the neck+bridge combo does a convincing faux ASATÂ® Special. Talk about versatile! And like the ASAT Special, the Z-3 maximizes sustain with Leoâ€™s Saddle-Lockâ„¢ bridge which transfers string energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument.
Founded by Leo Fender in 1980, the Comanche and all G&L USA instruments continue to be made in the historic G&L facility on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California, the Birthplace of Bolt-onâ„¢.
