This ASAT Z3 features a gorgeous Figured Maple top over a solid Alder body. The Bird's-Eye Maple neck with Tinted Gloss finish and Maple fretboard further accent the beauty of this instrument. 3 G&L Magnetic Field Design Z coil pickups give it the tonal versatility of the S-Series guitars. 12:1 ratio tuners and a patented G&L Saddle-Lock bridge make it stable and easy to tune. Includes Deluxe fitted Tolex hardshell case.
The patented Magnetic Field Design pickups use a ceramic bar magnet installed underneath each coil, with soft iron adjustable pole pieces to transfer the magnetic field to the surface of the pickup. By contrast, traditional Alnico type pickups, such as used in the Legacy and George Fullerton models, use nonadjustable Alnico pole pieces leaving the only adjustment being pickup height. The Magnetic Field Design has this adjustment, but further offers individual adjustment of each pole piece, letting the player effectively adjust the output of each string on each pickup. Magnetic Field Design (MFD) yield about twice the output per wind, making the pickup quieter while allowing a greater overall output. The sound of Magnetic Field pickups is slightly warmer with a broader frequency response.
One major Nashville session guitarist remarked that G&L Magnetic Field single-coil pickups sounded as balanced and sweet as his favorite old vintage Alnico equipped axe. The difference is that the MFD pickups sound that good right into his amp without all the EQ tweaking of his mixing console that made his other guitar sound so good. When he ran his G&L though his studio rig, he was truly amazed at the rich and warm, yet clear and sparkly sound.
