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

This was the first acoustic I purchased after borrowing an Epiphone for a few months. I had high hopes with the Fender brand name, but quickly realized that this is just a bad Squier with the Fender name on it. Out of the box the guitar looked perfect. I started playing and went to bend a string and a horrible sound came out. The frets are poor and therefore bending on high strings is almost impossible. Even new strings can't give this guitar a good acoustic sound. It works for beginners, but that's about it.

    Comments about Fender FA135CE Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I saw a woman in line in front of me at Guitar Canter, and she was paying a little more for the same guitar, basically, but with a no-name brand. I almost wanted to stop her and show her how much more she could get, but I am sure someone was probably making a commission.

      This is a low cost Fender that I am proud to have. It is easy to play, has a great sound and looks awesome. Although it is an inexpensive guitar, it is still built with Fender quality and integrity. I am completely satisfied.

        First off, I received this much faster than expected. Once I pulled it from the box I put in the battery that came with the guitar, tunes it up and started jammin away. It sounds like a much more expensive guitar.

        Comments about Fender FA135CE Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I'm practicing on this guitar over one week, and I should admit, this guitar is showing itself in the best way for me. Some people that doesn't know much about guitars might say that this guitar is really small and thin for an acoustic guitar, but I can sure you that it's normal for a CONCERT guitar because it suppose to be that way. It must be light so your back doesn't hurt if you give a long concert on your legs. The only thing that bothering me is that the guitar doesn't stays in tune for long, but it was just one week in use so it probably should get better. Anyway it has built-in onboard tuner so it shouldn't be a big problem as long as the battery is charged.

            I have had the guitar for about a month and it's got great sound and it has a comfortable body design. The design helps play chords all the way down at the 16,17,18th frets (has 20). I love this guitar and this is definetly worth the money. (tried out at Guitar Center and had a new one shipped in and took it home from there.) I am ye to find a con

              Comments about Fender FA135CE Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              I purchased this guitar on sale mainly as a backup guitar. Today (2 years later) I'm traveling and performing with it. It's been a solid guitar with no defects and it's taken some abuse on the road. I receive complements on my guitar from audiences and musicians alike. It's concert size so smaller than a standard size guitar convenient for traveling. I find the sound level is not affected by the size.as perhaps in the case of the smaller travel guitars. I wouldn't say "con" rather "trade off" is you do not get a deep sound characteristic of a regular size guitar. (That said, the size makes for a unique mid-range variety of which is an enjoyable diversion.) CONS: The tuning feature doesn't work well in my opinion, so, I use a separate tuning accessory. The other sound adjustments/features work well. The tuning button is sometimes easily depressed unintentionally and a drained batter results. I typically flip the 9 volt around (or take it out) to avoid power loss when not in use. Battery is easily accessible located by the plug in. Enjoy ...

                I haven't spent much time playing it yet so the strings haven't been stretched enough to stay in exact tuning, but it plays great and is very comfortable in the hands.
