Overview

The California Series T-Bucket 300CE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a bold acoustic-electric guitar for today’s player. This cutaway dreadnought is ready to hit the stage and make a sonic and visual statement with its slick contemporary style and robust onboard active electronics. Rich and full-sounding, this is the ideal guitar for those who need an instrument as unique as themselves.

The heart and soul of an acoustic guitar is the top, which must be able to resonate freely for natural sounding, dynamic tone. This guitar incorporates quartersawn scalloped bracing, artfully arranged to reinforce the crisp-sounding laminated maple top while allowing it to vibrate freely for greater projection and responsiveness. The laminated mahogany back balances the maple top’s sound, working together to create a detailed voice that brings out the best of every note and chord.

For those that want to hit the stage, the California Series T-Bucket 300CE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar features an onboard Fishman Isys III pickup system with active preamp, tuner, volume and tone controls for shaping the amplified voice of the guitar to match any venue. The bound maple neck sports a comfortable C-shaped profile that works well for any playing style, as well as a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with a GraphTech NuBone nut for enhanced sustain while eliminating string binding that can cause tuning issues. The rosewood bridge incorporates NuBone saddles for clarity and tonal consistency along with precise intonation.

The aesthetic appointments include a figured top, new fingerboard inlay, rosette and headstock graphics, all of which combine to really “pop” on stage and shine in the spotlight. An acoustic/electric guitar designed from the get-go to rock as hard as its electric cousins, the California Series T-Bucket 300CE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar is an exciting alternative to the everyday acoustic

      Comments about Fender California Series T-Bucket 300CE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I've been playing electric for many years now and looking for a lower end acoustic guitar. I tried out a wide range of acoustic guitars from low end to high end to see the quality difference. I would say that in my opinion this compares to a low end ($700 Taylor). The notes ring well and doesn't have a dull sound. I also played the Fender 400 t-bucket but the maple neck I think made it sound a lot different (brighter EQ, didn't seem to ring as easy when hitting notes). I didn't really find anything else comparable in the $300 or lower range.

        I have had this guitar for almost 3 months now and the progress i've made on this guitar is amazing, the sound is great, I have had no trouble with anything, the only thing to not like is the strings they aren't great, but you can easily live with them and not have to worry about changing them, at least for a while.

          This is a rich sounding guitar. It has a great tone plugged and unplugged. My only thing is that the Moonburst finish is actually more grey than brownish. It doesn't match the picture on the website. However, it is still a beautiful guitar and I have ZERO complaints!
