FACTOIDS & TRIVIA

This ASAT Classic Signature was made under Dale Hyatt's leadership during the interim period after Leo Fender’s death in March 1991 and the take over of G&L by BBE in December 1991. It has a rosewood fingerboard which is not commonly found on early ASAT Classics. This guitar also has a slighter larger and rounder neck profile than most G&Ls of that period. This variation is most likely due to the hand construction methods used by the company.
