UNIQUE FENDER BODY SHAPE
This guitar’s unique body shape is a Fender exclusive which was first introduced in 1965 and offers a vintage-inspired look with modern tonal characteristics.
SOLID SPRUCE TOP
The soundboard provides the most important tonal element of an acoustic guitar. Spruce is the standard choice, as few woods can beat its strength, sound, and dynamic range. Solid spruce tops are known for opening up and sounding better over time.
FISHMAN PREAMP AND TUNER
A Fishman CD-1 pickup/preamp system includes a variety of onboard controls for amplifying your acoustic instrument without compromising its pure, rich, and resonant tone. It also features a convenient built-in tuner.
The Strat-style 6-in-line headstock imparts Fender’s rock-and-roll attitude into this acoustic-electric instrument.
SLIM-TAPER “C”-SHAPED MAHOGANY NECK
The supremely comfortable slim-taper “C”-shaped mahogany neck will feel familiar to electric players and is also suited to acoustic players looking for a slimmer neck.
WALNUT FINGERBOARD AND BRIDGE
With its pleasingly dark look, smooth feel and vibrant tone, walnut is an excellent tonewood for crafting quality acoustic instrument bridges and fingerboards.
