Rio Grande Big Bottom Pickup Set for ASAT

   
Quantity:    

Add to Cart
For those who love the G&L ASAT Special, there are not many options for aftermarket pickups. Rio Grande took the opportunity to expand their already impressive catalog with the first ever replacement set for the ASAT! With a Vintage Tallboy in the neck and a Muy Grande in the bridge, the Big Bottom ASAT pickup set delivers a classic tone with plenty of punch (fits standard ASAT pickup covers).
There's a lot to love about G&L's ASAT MFD neck pickup, but vintage Tele® it's not. If you're looking for a more vintage Tele-ish tone but with better attack and less compression and murkiness, then check out the Vintage Tallboy for ASAT Special. The broad flat bobbin retains the wide frequency response of the ASAT, but traditional Tele construction gives it a vintage vibe and cluck.

And while the ASAT Special MFD Bridge pickup addresses the icy tendencies of the original Tele, for heavier lead work some may find it still a little too twangy. If that sounds like you, the Muy Grande ASAT Special bridge pickup does for the ASAT what the regular Muy Grande does for the Tele®. Namely a fatter more solid midrange, but with enough high end snap to satisfy those Nashville moments.

Neck: Two conductor wiring, RWRP, 7K ohms, 3/16" diameter Alnico V magnets. Comes complete with hardware and instructions. Available in black only. Plastic G&L ASAT pickup covers pop right on.

Bridge: Two conductor wiring, 8.4K ohms, 1/4" diameter Alnico V magnets. Comes complete with hardware and instructions. Available in black only. Plastic G&L ASAT pickup covers pop right on.
