The Fender Acoustasonic features a never-before-seen blend of natural acoustic tones and raw electric power, wrapped in an imaginative design. We're all a little taken aback by this first-of-its-kind guitar from Fender. But as soon you hear the sounds emanating from it, all of your questions will be answered. Featuring a radical Acoustasonic Telecaster design, classic Fender American appointments, and revolutionary electronics, this guitar is for players who love mixing natural acoustic beauty with potent electric clout.

Radical Acoustasonic Telecaster Design
The brilliant minds at Fender spent a lot of time bringing this instrument to life. Envisioning a hybrid guitar which combines the best acoustic sounds with modern technology, as well as classic Fender playability, the Acoustasonic was born. Making use of a modified Telecaster shape, the mahogany body actually has a thinly-hollow inside, as you can see from its soundhole. The top of this guitar is Sitka spruce, like you find on many acoustics. The innovative body design features Fender's Stringed Instrument Resonance System (SIRS), which maximizes acoustic tone.

Classic Fender American Appointments
While this guitar looks unfamiliar in certain ways, there's still plenty for Fender fans to hang their hat on. The body has a nice forearm contour often found on Strats. The mahogany Telecaster neck has a 25.5" scale length, and is cut into a familiar modern Deep "C" shape. The fretboard is a rich ebony, with 22 narrow-tall frets and classic dot inlays. There's a Graph Tech TUSQ nut denoting the start of the Tele headstock, which showcases chrome Fender Standard cast/sealed staggered tuners.

Revolutionary Electronics
The crowning achievement of the Fender Acoustasonic is the unbelievable electronics system, which creates incredibly versatile hybrid sound. The Acoustasonic has a Fender N4 Noiseless magnetic pickup between the soundhole and bridge, a Fishman piezo bridge pickup, and a Fishman Acoustasonic Enhancer internal body sensor pickup. It's also got a volume knob and mod knob. The five-way selector switch uses different combos of the three pickups and mixes them through a Fishman-designed Acoustic Engine to provide voicings that are incredible replicas of specific acoustic tones. At each of the 5 positions, the mod knob can be moved from position A to B, or set somewhere in between for a blend of the two. Voicings like Sitka Spruce/Rosewood Dreadnought, Alpine Spruce/Mahogany Auditorium, and Engelmann Spruce/Maple Small-Body, as well as blends of two of the voicings together, afford limitless acoustic options. This Fender guitar is truly amazing.

When it first came out, the Fender Acoustasonic was something of a mystery to me. After watching enough videos and reading online reviews, I finally took the plunge on the black model. Any negative review you'll see are generally by someone who hasn't actually played one, which is a worthless review in my book. I own one, and it's worth the hype. Man, is this a great guitar. It is highly versatile. It looks like a Telecaster, it feels like a Telecaster neck (fast with low action), but it sounds like a jumbo acoustic guitar. I'm running it through the Fender Acoustic Pro 200 amp and it sings with clarity, and if you close your eyes, you would assume I was playing a traditional acoustic guitar. It also sounded pretty good on my Hot Rod DeVille, but you will get the best performance on an amp designed to bring out the acoustic qualities of the guitar. The fit and finish on this guitar is very impressive, and mine had absolutely no visible or detectable flaws anywhere. This guitar clearly has some well-engineered design behind it, as there's subtle touches that really show it was thought all the way through. The brushed black matte metal hardware plates on the back are recessed into the body for a flush, flat surface. The neck heel joint is curved like the Fender Elite models for ease of access. The Fishman electronics are top of the line. It utilizes the iconic Telecaster design, while keeping the body weight way down yet sounding like a big old Martin or Taylor acoustic guitar. There's a reason this is $2K; it's an extremely well built and well-designed guitar. Just as importantly, I have to thank Evan Schlossberg for giving 110% customer service, going above and beyond to get this guitar in my hands. Evan was extremely responsive to every email I sent, personally calling me upon my first inquiry, and searching the inventory to find me one of these currently very hard-to-find guitars. What a great experience I had from Sam Ash, directly due to Evan Schlossberg.
