The Acoustasonic range of Fender guitars has taken the world by storm since its inception as arguably the first mainstream instruments to nail a perfect balance between both electric and acoustic guitar functionality. The Telecaster is no different, bringing its iconic body shape to the acoustic guitar world in a big way - it has become a huge hit among session players and weekend warriors for its ability to cover it all. Here's an awesome lefty one for our southpaw friends out there!
If you're used to standard Fender guitars from the current era, you'll feel right at home with this guitar in your hands, as the neck profile is the very same one from the other American series guitars. That level of playability on an acoustic guitar that sounds this woody, resonant and natural is just insane. It's simply a game-changer.
The three onboard pickups, each with different characteristics and functionalities, are voiced perfectly, and it's shockingly amazing how great this guitar sounds with rock overdrive and distortion. The control switching system is incredibly intuitive when switching between voicings. The Acoustasonic experience is something that must be tried to be believed!
The American Acoustasonic™ Telecaster® embodies the spirit of purposeful innovation that Fender was built on. From acoustic shape-shifting to electric rhythm tones, this powerful guitar uses a revolutionary Fender and Fishman®-designed Acoustic Engine to deliver new sonic expression from the studio to the stage.
Elegantly simple, the Acoustasonic Telecaster was designed to inspire – mixing future technology with organic feel and playability as a way to connect artists to their music. The fully hollow body features an integrated forearm contour and our patent-pending Stringed Instrument Resonance System (SIRS) – designed to deliver a naturally loud voice with lively harmonics. A smooth-playing mahogany neck and open-pore satin finish make this cutting-edge guitar comfortable and easy to play. On stage the Acoustasonic Telecaster eliminates many of the challenges associated with playing an acoustic guitar live by cutting out feedback, and making it easy to access the sounds you need without switching instruments. The Acoustasonic Telecaster is powered by the Fender and Fishman®-designed Acoustic Engine – proprietary blend of classic analog and future technologies that optimize the guitar’s natural sound, and then modify the resonance to deliver a curated collection of voices. These acoustic and electric voices can be played solo, or blended via the Mod Knob to create new sounds. They can also be used simultaneously, courtesy of the Fender Acoustasonic Noiseless™ magnetic pickup.
Handcrafted in Corona, California, at the same factory that makes Fender’s iconic electric instruments, the Acoustasonic Telecaster represents the next era in Fender craftsmanship and innovation – designed for fearless artists who want an inspiring instrument with limitless new sounds and a great Fender feel.
