Thinking of adding something new, fun and affordable to your musical instrument arsenal? Look no further than the Fender FM52E A-style acoustic/electric mandolin.

The Fender FM52E acoustic/electric mandolin is small and light, has a cool unique sound and it’s electric, so anywhere you take it, the Fender FM52E is ready to strum and stroll! A-style means it has a teardrop body shape. The top is made from laminated spruce, the sides are laminated nato and the 21 fret neck is nato with a rosewood fingerboard (13.7” scale length).

The Fender FM52E is easy to play due to the low action and fast neck, as well as an adjustable bridge. It sports a beautiful, vintage-style tobacco sunburst finish and it’s exotic vibe makes it a good looker as it is playable.

So whether you’re performing Led Zep’s “Goin’ To California”, REM’s “Losing My Religion”, Goo Goo Doll’s “Iris”, Death Cab’s “Soul Meet Body”, Rod Stewart’s “Maggie Mae” or Yes’ “Wonderous Stories”, or, better yet your own original masterpiece, the Fender FM52E Acoustic/Electric mandolin will provide years of reliable, enjoyable playability and sound quality…a distinctively different yet familiar sound. Plug it in and cancel your appointments…you won’t be putting this baby down for a while!

Comments about Fender FM52E Mandolin (Sunburst):

This is my first mandolin-- I've had it for three years, and it gets played every day. Other than frequent tuning, I have had NO complaints. Unplugged, it does lack the rich tone of a pricier mando; plugged in, you can make it sound any way you want it to! I had it set up professionally when I first bought it, and have never had to do it again. Eventually I'll move on to something higher up the ladder-- but I will NEVER let this one out of my hands.

Comments about Fender FM52E Mandolin (Sunburst):

Sustain and timbre acoustically are´nt comparable to more expensive mandos, but I´m very happy with the sound I get when plugged in to a PA. No need for preamps (I use HK PA with a Phonic mixer). Definitively good value for the money.
