I purchased my Fender Sonoran SCE a few months ago and fell in love with it the moment I picked it up, it has a great Stratocaster feeling neck, very well setup out of box with no adjustments needed, the tuners while generic work just fine and are easily replaced with the superior Fender Vintage Style Tuners with no modifications to the guitar whatsoever, I've played many guitars from Martin, Taylor, Gibson, Takamine, Washburn, Seagull, Guild and many many more and this one will outshine any guitars in it's price point (the only exception possibly being the Seagulls depending on the model) if you're on the fence about buying this guitar try going to a local music shop and playing it and you'll fall in love with it the same way I did, it produces a great tone that's unrivaled by most other guitars in it's price point, the only guitar I own that I love more is my Ovation 1862 Custom Balladeer from the 80's and this one easily rivals it in looks and tone. The only real downside is the stock strings with are Fender brand strings but they're easily replaced with a good set of Elixirs.

This thing is worth the money, but it's nothing special. I tried this out at a few gigs and the sound is Okay. The playability is surprisingly very good. The finish looks cool. But when I plugged this in to do my gig, it sounded pretty thin. It didn't have the full-bodied warmth you normally expect from acoustics. However, this does make a great practice/back up guitar. And it looks super cool as well.

      Comments about Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I've been playing this guitar for almost a month now and I have to say that I'm in love with it. It not only looks beautiful but sounds lovely as well. I had a cheap guitar before this that I was playing but I can tell a noticible different in the way they sound. I will definitely purchase another Fender soon!

      Nice Guitar. Love it!

      Comments about Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I am a novice guitar player and singer working on getting better. My pawn shop guitar was getting tired and I was ready for an upgrade, plus I needed the acoustic/electric feature to plug into an amp for the occasional open mic night at my local gin mill. I found this guitar on the website and went to the store in West Palm Beach to test play. It was fantastic. The staff at the store was most helpful. I wanted the "Surf Green" color so they ordered it for me. It showed up on time and in perfect condition. I am no expert but I can tell you that this guitar plays well, sound much better than my old one, and looks beautiful. It has been a big hit for the friends and family that I have played it for.

      Very Nice!

      By Dale

      Comments about Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Everyone who has seen my black with white guitar say it looks classy. It has a very bright sound a bit sharper than my Martin. The electronics are very good. That's why I would play it at any size venue it sounds good through an amp & sound system.

        Beautiful guitar. As stated, has a great sound, fine quality guitar for the price. Feels great to hold and play, although the Fender strings that came with the instrument have a very bright sound. But that is subjective. Otherwise, I love my new acoustic

          Comments about Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I went into Guitar Center looking for a great guitar for less than $500. I played about ten guitars and finally picked up the Fender. I chose the black with pearl color. This is a very bright guitar with a lot of natural acoustic volume. I love the cut away body! I had some Guitar Center Staff helping me and in order to get a guitar with the cut away and this much presence I was going to have to jump up to the $800 price range.
          We sat down and played this guitar through an amp and it sounded excellent. The electronics that come with this guitar are extremely nice for this price range. I am not a huge fan of the head stock but it doesnt hurt the playability or the sound so I am gonna get used to it and really enjoy this guitar.

          Comments about Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I'd had one of these a few years ago. Regrettably, I sold it when I was in a pinch and have regretted it ever since. I came across it on here with a Reduced Price and snagged one. Awesome both acoustic and electric. I use it a lot for recording, too.

          good acoustic electric at a fair price

          By Ken

          from VA, USA

          Comments about Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I have been looking at these off and on for a while. I have been intrigued with the Strat style neck on Fender acoustics for many years. It has a surprisingly good sound for an acoustic with a solid color paint finish. I had to do some setup work on it ( lower the bridge saddle, by sanding off some material from the bottom of the saddle) to make it play better. The pickup is pretty good, but the preamp really helps to make it sound good when amplified.

          The One True Guitar

              Comments about Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              Who would have thought that when all was said and done The One True Guitar would be a beach blanket throwaway from Fender? I love this guitar! I can play pretty much anything I can play on my Telecaster on this guitar. I don't practice with anything else anymore. I find myself thinking I've flubbed some lick or phrase but if I just keep going it turns out I didn't. This neck actually makes me play better. I did need to get it set up after I got it. It wasn't especially playable out of the box, but after the bridge was raised a hair and the truss rod disenCaliforniated, it's the best playing acoustic I've ever owned. No kidding.
