Dreadnought cutaway body style
Fishman® Isys™ III pickup system with active preamp, tuner, volume and tone controls
Solid spruce top with quartersawn scalloped “X”-bracing, mahogany back and sides
Maple neck with “C”-shaped profile and matching headstock
20-fret rosewood fingerboard with bone nut
Rosewood bridge with compensated bone saddle
FISHMAN® PREAMP WITH BUILT-IN TUNER
A Fishman® pickup/preamp system gives your acoustic instrument peerless amplified performance, with a variety of onboard controls and no compromise whatsoever on pure, rich and resonant acoustic tone. The built-in tuner is conveniently placed right where you can see it, helping to keep your intonation right on the money.
Scalloped bracing is thinner than more conventional bracing. That means that the bracing pattern inside the guitar uses less wood, which means that soundboard mass is reduced. This lets the top resonate more freely, resulting in better tone with more nuance and greater projection.
BONE NUT AND SADDLE
String nuts and bridge saddles fashioned from bone contribute to brighter, clearer acoustic tone. Many players consider them more "organic" sounding, with tonal quality unmatched by string nuts and bridge saddles made using synthetic materials.
FENDER COATED STRINGS
Simply put, coated strings sound better and last longer. Your strings are where the rubber meets the road, so to speak, and they’re continually exposed to dirt, grime, the vagaries of climate and oxidation, and more. Fender coated strings resist all of this tone-deadening unpleasantness with marvelously smooth feel, improved resistance to corrosion and longer life.
MAPLE STRAT® NECK WITH "C" PROFILE
A Fender specialty. A maple Stratocaster neck with a "C" profile gives you the timeless and remarkably comfortable fretting-hand feel of one of the world’s greatest electric instruments on your acoustic guitar. For great acoustic sound and performance with great electric-guitar feel, there’s nothing better.
An acoustic guitar with a solid top literally resonates with a more individual tonal character, more "organic" consistency and a more "true" voice.
