Korina Collection ASAT Bass

2011 Limited Edition - 100 instruments

Product Overview

Powerful humbuckers and Korina is magical with guitars, just like ‘buckers and Mahogany. But how about a ballsy MFD humbucker-equipped bass? Fact is, Leo Fender had known for years that Mahogany and G&L MFD bass humbuckers are a delicious combination; in fact, the earliest L-2000s had Mahogany bodies for deep, warm tones. Naturally, the Custom Creations crew had to try Leo's MFD 'buckers and Tri-Tone active/passive preamp system with Korina, and what better way to round out the Korina Collection than with an ASAT Bass? Turns out the Korina-bodied ASAT Bass bridges the gap between the depth of mahogany and the focused midrange of Alder, a tasty destination where punchy funk and heavy rock riffs reside. Take it from bassist Steve Grom, G&L Director of Manufacturing and lead Custom Creations member, "This is one badass ASAT Bass."
