Fender American Acoustasonic Telecaster, Crimson Red
Overview by GAK
The Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster allows you to get the best of both worlds - combining the resonance and warmth of a hollow-body with the playability and tonal options of an electric guitar. The Acoustasonic range has features that were specially designed for these guitars, and are available in a range of finishes.
The Acoustasonic Telecaster has a mahogany hollow body with a sleek polyester satin matte finish and has a patent-pending Stringed Instrument Resonance System (SIRS) soundhole with inlaid top, which delivers a loud, natural voice and harmonics thanks to its unique ‘waterfall’ design. The neck is also made from mahogany with a ‘Deep C’ profile which has the playability and comfort of an electric guitar, and a satin finish for a smooth experience, and is topped with a durable 22-fret ebony fretboard.
The hollow body greatly improves the acoustic aspect of the guitar as this body style is naturally resonant and improves projection, and the patented Stringed Instrument Resonance System (SIRS) soundhole has a ‘waterfall’ design, creating a naturally loud voice and vibrant harmonics.
The Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster has a three-pickup system that takes advantage of the natural tones of the wood. It has a Fishman under-saddle piezo which enhances the natural acoustic sound, there’s a body-sending pickup that brings out the natural resonance and harmonic frequencies of the wood, then there’s a Fender Acoustasonic Noiseless Magnetic pickup which is designed to enhance the electric voicings, delivering a hum-free tone. Combined, these features make sure you get the very best sound from your guitar.
The Fender and Fishman-designed acoustic engine has a newly-curated collection of 3 different acoustic voicings (enhanced harmonics, alternative acoustics, core acoustics), an acoustic-electric blend, and a full electric voicing to get the classic Tele twang. The Mod knob lets you blend two voices together so you get even more tonal options, making the Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster incredibly versatile. The acoustic voicings work best when played through an acoustic amp, or a preamp straight into a recording device.
To complete the Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster is a Graph Tech TUSQ nut, a Modern Asymmetrical bridge, chrome hardware, and classic Black finish.
Deluxe gig bag included.
