Surprisingly Versatile Classic T-Style Guitar, Fulfilling Leo Fender’s Legacy of Innovation
The Left Handed Tribute ASAT is Leo Fender’s final word in the evolution of the single cutaway, T-style guitar. The key to the Tribute ASAT’s revolutionary sound is the addition of Leo Fender’s MFD™ single coil pickups in the bridge and neck positions. The MFD™ single coil in the bridge position offers a crisp attack that is rich in harmonics, while the MFD™ single coil in the bridge is rich and warm, offering a tonal palette suited to gritty blues and cool jazz. Wrapped with traditional Formvar wire, the MFD™ single coil pickups offer a less twangy tone than previous versions of the T-style guitar, giving the ASAT Tribute an output and tonal range that is perfect for the modern music scene.
Featuring a lightweight and resonant Swamp Ash body in a gorgeous translucent orange finish, with a Hard-Rock Maple neck with a Classic C profile and a 22 fret Maple fingerboard, the ASAT Tribute is is perfectly suited to the modern player in terms of comfort and playability. The hardware includes a traditional boxed-steel bridge with individual brass saddles, sealed-back die cast tuners and a 100% bone nut for tuning stability.
