Overview

The Fender FA135CE Concert Acoustic Guitar is built on the concert-style platform for a sleek, modern design. The laminated spruce top features X-bracing for bright, punchy tone, ideal for lead guitar. The neck is nato, and the back and sides are laminated basswood-both tone woods known for letting the mid and high frequencies sing out.

Thanks to the basswood back and sides, the Fender FA135CE is very light, avoiding strain to your neck or back during prolonged playing. The chrome tuners offer precision tuning. The guitar also features an impressive electronics system, featuring the Fishman ION-T preamp and built-in chromatic tuner, which provides lightning-fast tuning and amplification. The preamp features a volume dial, phase and contour buttons, and a tuner power button.

The FA135CE is fashioned with a natural gloss polyurethane finish, aged fretboard and body bindings, and a white concentric ring rosette that offers a striking contrast, and an appearance as beautiful as its sound.

Case sold separately.

i bout this guitar a month ago. Its sounds beautiful, better than all of the guitars i own. it has a cut away on the neck, it makes it easy to reach the higher frets. the lightweight ( only about 1 pound) lets you play for prolonged time, without putting any strain on your neck this guitar sounds beautiful and looks beautifully i reccomend this for a beginner and even a expert

I started with two stars, and upped to three. I don't want to sound like a snob. My main ax is a Taylor 614ce, Of course, this Fender sounds like rubbish next to it! And it should for less than 10% of the price.

So, let's toss the Taylor out of the equation entirely. I've also got a cheap Martin DX?. My Martin doesn't sound great, but I can take it to Burning Man - use it as a pillow, a plate, and swat tennis balls and the sound/action stay pretty darn good. I guess cuz of the plastic...er, "HPL" Point is. CRUSHES THE FA135!

Next up. Yamaha FG700 (sub $200). My wife/ kids got it for me. Sentimental value. Didn't want it destroyed (OK w Martin dying).

Quick Recap: Two full size dreads. Main ax = cutaway grand symphony. BrainFlash! get a beater of same variety as my beloved Taylor! Enter the Fender FA135CE! You dig?

Yes, I played it in the store - not as much as I should've - but c'mon, it's < $ than a pedal!

I expected sound "ON PAR" with the Yamaha. I'm not saying, "EQUALLY AS GOOD" but I'd like it to be close. I'd like to have that feeling of, "man, I'd love to take the Taylor, but I'm good with the Fender..." I'd settle for the feeling of, "man, I'd love to the take the Taylor, and I don't feel totally uninspired by the Fender..."

But I do. Uninspired is the word. I don't want to play it. I take it camping. It sits in the case. You know the feeling. It's not that I'm not "proud" cuz someone may KNOW it's a cheap guitar - that would be okay. This is that kind of, "man, I dread hearing that thing. I think I'll go gnaw on a branch or something..."

But let me break down my 3 stars:

1 star for LOOKS! If I was deaf, I'd play it all day long... butterface, for a guitar.
1 star for PRICE! This is in the "so cheap it's tough to find someone to check you out cuz they look the other way hoping for someone with a more expensive item for commission."
1 star for STAYS IN TUNE! And, man, the intonation is great! strobed it, and within cents all up and down fretboard!

I just bought this guitar and no matter what I do it won't project on the speakers. I'm starting to think something is wrong with it. I'm not happy at all.

Comments about Fender FA135CE Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This was my first 6 string after switching from bass. Aside from the need to tune before playing, which I'd do anyway, I love this guitar. It sounds beautiful, fits me like glove and is so easy to play. Since buying this I bought a high end Yamaha because I've been bitten by the guitar collecting bug. The Fender feels so much better and to me, sounds better too. Obviously there more expensive guitars that would sound better but at a certain point there diminishing return. Bells and whistles aside, unless your income depends on your music this is a great choice.

Comments about Fender FA135CE Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this product as my first real Acoustic. While it does what it's supposed to, it still has some flaws. The built in amp sounds good but the tuner is dreadful. But you get what you pay for! Here's a word of advice for any beginners. Don't tune too fast with this guitar. My G string snapped going too fast (as an electric player you don't deal with these problems). But this is a good beginner guitar.

Comments about Fender FA135CE Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

While I've played my entire life I have never played for anything but my own enjoyment. When I found this Fender there was just something about how it felt as I played that I kept going back to it. The thing played well and just fit me like no other guitar I've played. I decided that I wanted it and took one home in the box without a setup. I changed strings and found there really wasn't any adjustments needed. The only negative thing I can find to say is it is not the greatest sounding guitar and the frets are sharp needing to be filed which I have yet to do. While I also own a Martin DCPA5 that blows the Fender away in the sound department the Fender is still the one that gets most of my practice time. I gotta say that while it is a cheap guitar I really like it.

3 Stars out of 10

Comments about Fender FA135CE Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The E string got cut before getting to the tone level.
i had to rob peter to pay paul Thanks to my older guitar.
Not so happy with the packaging. The box was damaged( big hole in the medal of the box).
Beside it took so many days before it got shipped
And maybe if I didn't call to know what happen to my perches. It would be forgotten.
Next time I will more then twice before shopping from your store. Specially I could get it with lower price in other location.
I'll give you 3 Stars out of 10.

    Built well. Has quality fishman electronics and very easy controls. Have been playing for a long time and tried many acoustics. I have settled on this as my backup guitar. It was the best quality in its price range.
