FSOT G&L Custom Creation Centennial Leo ASAT 1 of 50

Post by toneman31 » June 21st, 2014, 6:56 am

Hello all I am new here but I have references on ebay and the gear page. I have a very cool piece here that I bought two of when they first came out and they have never been played just admired occasionally. This was Leo fenders 100 year celebration guitar They made a run of 50 using pickups and parts from his workshop that had been closed when he passed. The guitar is stunning it has a translucent white paint with very fine sparkle and with the black crinkle its just amazing but I don't need two so up se goes. I am looking for another Anderson another Red Plate amp or a Zwreck or savage amp or just something interesting. Hell I am even into high end watches LOL The guitars sold for 5000.00 dollars when they first came out and have gone up in value and will continue to go up. The guitar comes with certificate signed by Phyllis Fender all case candy still in packaging and the Leo and Me book.

CLF Centennial ASAT


In celebration of what would have been our founder Leo Fender’s 100th birthday, the people of G&L Musical Instruments, in collaboration with Phyllis Fender, have created a guitar and bass to honor Leo by incorporating certain elements of Leo Fender’s early G&L designs with a modern, heartfelt approach.



CLF Centennial ASAT


The C.L.F. Centennial ASAT begins with a comfortable quarter-sawn slim Heritage “C” shape neck profile with 7.5 inch radius, a favorite among enthusiasts of vintage G&L guitars for its fast, easy playability. Authentic vintage ASAT tone comes courtesy of G&L MFD (Magnetic Field Design) large single-coil pickups, each carefully hand-wound using NOS 42 gauge plain enamel wire.

Complementing the vintage ASAT tone and feel is an authentic black wrinkle powder-coated 6061/T6 cold-rolled aluminum pickguard and matching control plate; these parts offered more than a sleek appearance, they helped control RF (radio-frequency) interferences received by the electronics and single-coil pickups. These thoughtful details are brought together with contemporary G&L features, such as the non-compression truss rod and the unparalleled playability of PLEK fret dressing, demonstrating the measure of G&L’s progress and standing as testament to the enduring appeal of Leo’s final designs and his company on Fender Avenue that continues to produce them today.

The C.L.F. Centennial ASAT wouldn’t be complete without a tribute from Phyllis Fender. Leo and Me (My Eleven Years With The Guitar Man) is an autographed memorial album sharing over fifty pages of full-color photos from the Fenders' personal photo albums, each selected, arranged and captioned by Phyllis herself. Leo and Me reflects the warmth, honesty and good humor that characterized the Fenders’ relationship, as well as reveals a side of Leo that the public has never known – until now...
