Mateus Asato has established himself as one of the most melodic and inspirational guitar players in the world today. His collaboration with John Suhr has resulted in the all-new Asatobucker®, a vintage-inspired bridge humbucker with superb warmth and touch sensitivity. Alnico IV magnets are used to create the soft and sweet attack that is the quintessential Mateus sound.
“When you are playing with different people, you need one guitar to satisfy as much variety as possible. You need the variety. These humbuckers still have the Classic S sound but at the same time have the option of a bigger fatter sound. After playing a set of Pete Thorn’s pickups that I loved, I wanted to take the low-middle area and increase it up a little bit because when you have a hum in the bridge, it could get super bright. Sound wise, it’s what we were looking for. I just love having a humbucker in my signature model.”
