Just bought a new ASAT Fullerton Classic Telecaster. Tried it yesterday and really like it.
A great compliment to a Fender single coil as it sounds a little stronger if you ever want that.

Nice one; congrats!!!

By the way the current G&L serial number has the date coded in it; the CLF2107091 decodes as:

CLF - this is short for "Clarence Leo Fender" of course.;)
21- 2021
07 - month so July
091 - production number for the month

So yours was production number 91 from July 2021.

Thanks for the info, didn't know that. I want to buy a G & G case for it but the Fender ones won't fit.
They are backordered

Yup the G&L headstock is a little bit longer due to shape and spacing between tuner holes so the G&L specific case is needed.

The bolder output of the MFDs allows a greater range of tones via the volume and tone knobs than typical alnicos. I find volume at about 85% and tone to taste is pretty good overall for the various MFDs.

That is nice! BTW, it will fit in a Fender G&G case, mine does. You do have to push the padding in where the tip of the headstock goes but it sits down ok and the lid closes as usual.

Just tried it and it worked with one G & G I have. it is sitting in that case and I'll buy
another for the Tele I took out . Thanks for the help.
It's funny, I have 2 G & G's for Tele's and one fits the G & G and the other not at all.

Good deal; sometimes the G&L is just a touch too long for the Fender case.

I have 2 other Telecasters (83 and AP Deluxe) with G & G cases. I tried the G & L with them
and one case worked, the other didn't. So I'm keeping the G & L in the one that fits and will
order another G & G which I know will fit the AP Deluxe which is now caseless. Didn't know I already had a long
fitting case that would work and I thank REWTX for telling me it would work.
That's what makes this forum so good, all the advise and help.
Now, should I look at a Bluesboy?.......😋
