These guitars are not built to order, and will be released in small batches. Don't miss your chance to relive G&L history.

G&L Custom Shop ASAT Classic Denim Nitro - B-Stock
G&L Custom Shop ASAT Classic Denim Nitro - B-Stock

The G&L Custom Shop is a master builder program that offers a more personalized journey through the G&L factory than the already excellent "option order" models. This particular ASAT Classic Alnico in one-of-a-kind Denim nitro lacquer was built specifically for the 2019 Winter NAMM show. We've dubbed it "Polar Vortex," as a FedEx ride through the dead of winter resulted in some light lacquer cracking in transit. Still a stunning guitar with a little extra "character" this ASAT Classic Alnico is an excellent reminder of the immense flexibility of Leo Fender's groundbreaking design.
