HIGHLIGHT of the guitar
EXCLUSIVE FENDER BODY SHAPE
This unusual shaping is only available from Fender. Classic vintage flair, but interpreted in a modern way.
SOLID SPRUCE TOP
Spruce is one of the modern standard woods for tops on acoustic guitars and other instruments - there are only a few woods that offer such outstanding stability, tonal brilliance and dynamics. Spruce wood suits every style and every playing technique, whether hard chord playing, fast flat picking or filigree finger picking.
FISHMAN PREAMP AND TUNER
The Fishman pickup/preamp system not only delivers clean acoustic sound, it also includes tone controls without sacrificing pure, resonant tone. The built-in tuner is placed exactly where you can see it clearly while playing.
MATCHING HEADSTOCK WITH 6 ROW MECHANISM
A classic Fender detail: matching painted headstock with 6-row mechanics. It offers a lot of stability and also withstands nasty "whiplash" vibrations that can seriously damage some traditional instruments.
MAHOGANY NECK IN SLIM-TAPER C-PROFILE
This mahogany neck is a treat for the gripping hand! The smooth, tapered C-neck profile feels great and suits any playing technique. The neck also contributes to increased volume and a lively overall sound.
WALNUT FERTBOARD AND BRIDGE
With the beautiful dark grain, the smooth feel and a walnut sound, laurel is a first-class wood for bridges and fingerboards on acoustic instruments.
