When it’s time to rock the low end with acoustic tone, the California Series T-Bucket 300E Concert Acoustic-Electric Bass is ready with handsome looks and pure bass sound. With tons of visual appeal and natural tone, this cutaway dreadnought acoustic-electric bass is ready to take the stage with pure Fender style. Add in the robust onboard active electronics and you have an instrument that can rise to any occasion.
The heart and soul of an acoustic bass is the top, which must be able to resonate freely for natural sounding, dynamic tone. This bass 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. For those that want to hit the stage, the California Series T-Bucket 300E Concert Acoustic-Electric Bass features an onboard Fishman Isys III pickup system with active preamp, tuner, volume and tone controls for shaping the amplified voice of the bass 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 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with a Graph Tech 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 gorgeous 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 bass designed from the get-go to rock as hard as its electric cousins, the California Series T-Bucket 300E Concert Acoustic-Electric Bass is an exciting alternative to the everyday acoustic guitar.

Comments about Fender California Series T-Bucket 300E Concert Acoustic-Electric Bass:
Didn't have my cables available right away, but when I opened the guitar I loved the unplugged sound. Much better than I had expected. My first disappointment came when I attempted to put the guitar in the case that was suggested for it, and it doesn't fit. The headstock is too wide and too long, and when contacting fender about this problem their suggestion was to find a third party case because they had no intentions of creating a new case for it.
The second disappointment came when I finally was able to plug the guitar in. The E and A strings were not being picked up, had to return the guitar and am currently waiting for another.
