G&L USA ASAT Semi Hollow Bass by Leo Fender. Immaculate Condition PRICE DROP



Beautiful example of an early G&L ASAT Bass by Leo Fender and George Fullerton. In immaculate condition. Exceptionally well cared for, cellophane still on control compartment cover.

Leo Fender & George Fullerton formed G&L, after Leo sold MusicMan to Ernie Ball, (and Fender to CBS). Leo is famously quoted as saying these were the best instruments he ever built.

They are certainly better finished than Fender and Musicman basses I have had. Three bolt neck plate version, in stunning condition made when Leo & George were still in charge. To the best if my knowledge and a lot of internet research it seems that ASATs were introduced from around 1986 and the use of the Fullerton 3 bolt continued until 1991. Leo Fender sadly passed away in 1991. So I reckon this bass is 30-35 years old, but looks new.

Playable antique finish Maple neck and headstock with Rosewood fingerboard. Frets in great condition.

Two tone Tabacco burst . SWAMP ASH semi-hollow body with F Hole.
Two Humbucker pickups and controls offer wide range of tones great punch, thump and growl.
Controls volume treble and bass.
Switches pickup selector, series/parallel, active .

Hipshot X-Tender Drop D Tuner (€ 100 upgrade) Original G&L E tuner available.

G&L high mass bridge.

Schaller strap loks

How old is it?

@hutts44. I think it is 80s or 90s will check when I get home on Sunday eve.

@hutts44. I believe its 30-35 years old. G&L Serial numbers are difficult to date, but specs indicate this model was probably made between 1986 to 1991. I bought 2nd hand 20 around years ago.

Would you be interested in a trade for a 1977' Fender Jazz?

@Sid Rainey Thanks for your interest, but I'm trying to reduce my gear.

I play the solid body version of this bass and it's absolutely one of the best instruments I've ever picked up. Every single bass tone imaginable can be dialled in and the pickups are super powerful. If I had the shillings I'd gladly take this beautiful bass off your hands. I even live in the same town as ya!

Whoever gers this beauty will wonder where it's been all their lives. Good luck with the sale!!!

@psillery1 Thanks for your comments. It is a really beautiful bass and I'm having second thoughts about letting it go now!

What's the weight please ?

@Mark_ii 8.6 pounds / 3.9 kg according to my bathroom scales. The semi hollow body makes it lighter than most G&L, Fender and MM solid body basses.
