G&L Announces the Return of Fullerton Standard Instruments to US Market!
It’s been nearly 10 years since G&L produced Fullerton Standard instruments, yet the concept is the same: deliver unsurpassed quality and value in an authentic G&L made in Leo’s historic Fender Avenue factory in Fullerton, California. This time around, Fullerton Standard instruments will be produced in short production runs, and each run will feature a different model and/or color. Every Fullerton Standard model comes with a G&L gig bag and includes Plek fret processing for superb playability.
Kicking off the Fullerton Standard program with March 2017 deliveries to authorized G&L dealers are two ASAT Classic guitars, both with street prices of about $1,000.
• Vintage White, 3-ply black pickguard, maple fingerboard
• Spanish Copper Metallic, 3-ply white pickguard, maple fingerboard
The G&L ASAT® Classic is Leo’s final word on the traditional single-cutaway bolt-on axe. Framed in a classic boxed-steel bridge, the single-coil Magnetic Field Design™ bridge pickup created by Leo Fender† delivers crisp attack with complex harmonics while individual brass saddles offer modern levels of intonation refinement. Flip to the single-coil MFD™ neck pickup and you’ll discover a delectably rich tonal palette, from round clean jazz tones to thick, gritty blues. Put ‘em together and you’ll find a whole ‘nother level of heaven. The Fullerton Standard offers all these features at an amazing price!
Founded by Leo Fender† in 1980, G&L USA instruments continue to be made in the historic G&L facility on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California, the Birthplace of Bolt-on™.
