The ASAT Classic Three, using again a third, centrally located pickup and five position selector switch. This time, however, a reverse-wound S-500 middle pickup is installed in the middle position of an ASAT Classic. The basic idea for this kind of arrangement has been long established in the Nashville session player scene, where players often install a Strat® middle pickup in the middle position of a Telecaster® and swap the 3-position pickup selector with a 5-way unit.  


This semi-hollow body makes the guitar very resonant and light, while keeping the traditional styling without the f-hole.  The natural satin finish is also a nice touch of vintage class applied.

The G&L Custom Creations Department dediced to build an instrument similar to the formula adopted by the Nashville guys but with a distinctly G&L flavor. In particular, that means a Semi-Hollow Swamp Ash body, ASAT Classic MFD pickups in place of Alnico Tele® pickups, and the S-500 MFD in place of the Strat pickup. The CCD team decided to ice the cake with a push/pull volume pot (changed to tone pot for run #2)that functions the same way as the S-500's mini-toggle switch, enabling additional pickup combinations of neck+bridge or all three pickups together.

The "S" designation comes from both internal designation for this instrument, due to its use of the S-500 middle pickup, and "Session" in homage to the origin of this guitar configuration.
