Fender Redondo Player, Belmont Blue
Fender Redondo Player, Belmont Blue Overview by GAK
Bold and brash, the chest-thumping sound of this big-bodied acoustic was designed to inspire from the moment you pick it up. The exclusive slope-shouldered Redondo body shape has a rich, commanding voice that fills any room. The gloss metallic top, back and sides, as well as a matching painted 6-in-line headstock and crème binding, give it a shot of electrifying attitude. Dynamic, unique and unconventional—like today’s guitarists—the Redondo Player refuses to be bound by the past.
The same no-compromise attitude that gives the Redondo Player its uniquely killer vibe extends to every aspect of its construction. It features optimized bracing for reduced mass and superior resonance, a Graph Tech® NuBone® nut and saddle for greater sustain and a Fishman® preamp system that makes it easy to plug in without sacrificing the guitar’s natural sound.
Its lightweight mahogany neck features a comfortable, easy-to-play, slim-taper “C”-shaped profile suitable for any playing style and its laurel fingerboard and bridge further augment its vibrant tone. With superb playability, distinctive looks and unmistakably Fender vibe, the Redondo Player is an inspiring instrument that was made for self-expression.

Plays well and looks good. Could benefit from providing some information on the controls and any maintenance necessary.
Sounds awesome. The only bad thing about it is that it makes me sound bad as the sound quality and volume is perfect. Practice makes perfect hey
