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 ordered this guitar for my 14 year old daughter to learn on. After checking it out at a store I had high hopes. She wanted it in natural so I ordered online and was excited for it to arrive so I could set it up and get her started. On the day of arival I opened the package. It seemed to be packaged well but once unwrapped the first thing I noticed was a cracked neck. The fretboard near the sound hold was cracked and the fret board on the first and second frets was riddled with surface cracks. There were several blemishes in the finish. Something I could live with, but all up and down the neck where the fret bars were the finish was alwful. It looked like a 5 year old sanded this guitar. All and all it sounded pretty good when I played it in the store. Good for a begginer anyway. The only thing I can say is Im extremely dissapointed.

      Tuner needs improvement. Change the strings before you play. The ones that come with it are junk.

          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.
