Better than I thought

Comments about Fender FR50CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

This guitar was a surprise right our of the case. For me, the factory set up was perfect. I can use a slide, and fret chords with no problem. I haven't been able to put this guitar down since I purchased it a week ago. It is not as loud as my National Tricone, but that is to be expected. Even with the slight lack of volume, it projects that cool "reso" tone. The finish is very pretty with it's glossy polyurethane coat. Maybe a nitrose finish would have helped the volume a bit, but then the instrument would have cost more. The cutaway is also a plus...as I need to get to the 15th fret on the first two strings with the slide bar. So, in my opinion, this instrument is well worth the money. I wouldn't mind having another one to keep in a different tuning. If anybody is on the fence about purchasing this instrument, just go ahead and buy it! It's not a National, but it IS worth the money for what you get. Enjoy...

Better than expected

Comments about Fender FR50CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

This guitar brings the best of quality, value and sound engineering together. A little tune up out of the case and I was on my way. I received it 24 hours ago and I have had difficulty putting it down. The finish is outstanding, and the sound has that "reso-mojo" vibe that I look for in reso guitars. The sound quality out weighs the lack of volume. In my opinion, the factory setup i.e.the action, is perfect. I can both use the slide bar and finger chords easily on this instrument. I also own a National Style II Tri-cone that is almost impossible to finger chords with. *THE best innovation on this instrument is the "split" bridge that makes room for an allen head adjustment for the string height*...superb!!! The price is right for the quality of this instrument...I want another one or two of these to provide different tunings. I think this instrument will be a collectors item in the years to come...maybe it will outgrow my 401K ! Peace.
