This is a great guitar for the beginner or intermediate player who wants to just grab a guitar and jam. It has the depth of an electric with a crisp and clean acoustic sound. Quickly throw it into the key of choice with the built-in tuner and plug it into an amp for an electric sound. For the price, there is nothing better. I play it every day and highly recommend it!

this was my very first guitar ever. i thought it was the best acoustic ever when i bought it. it turned out to be a good solid guitar, but it sounds a lot different than the regular-shaped acoustics. so im saying if you want a different sounding or good begginer guitar, you would like this. but if your looking for something more on the classic acoustic side, don't get this.

10/10 would buy again

Comments about Fender Standard Stratacoustic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar for awhile now. My version doesn't have the built in tuner but it still sounds amazing. Its not too loud and it sounds great plugged into my amp. the fiberglass body makes it very durable and light. my only complaint is that its kind of off balance because the head is heavier but overall its a must have. this guitar will surely remain as my go to guitar. its versatile and comfortable to play. i constantly move from my ibanez to it and the c shape neck makes its easy. overall 10/10 would buy again

I love anything Fender, but....

By Craig

Comments about Fender Standard Stratacoustic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Its an electric guitar that can double as acoustic, but really only in a pinch. On electric, you are playing with the big boys and the built in Fishman preamp (at least on my model) really delivers. If you play in a band, you can fire your bass player (!) if you crank the bass dial on the Fishman. Fun to play. Acoustic---I'd give it only a C (plus the fact that you can't play silently, such as on headphone amp). It sounds, acoustic, like a toy, something out of a box at ToysRUs. No power. No real voice. On mine the action was way too high (though I realize that the acoustic aspect makes the action higher than on my Stratocaster). The fiberglass body is a blessing and a curse---blessing in that its durable (and lightweight...half the weight of my American Custom Strat), curse---just sounds bland, even muffled. Even laminated pressboard would sound better. (I dunno...maybe I should swap out the strings). Be careful what you wish for. I wished for an acoustic with the thin neck I was used to on my Strat (hard for me to do barre chords on a dreadnaught acoustic), and I got it. The price to pay was very mediocre performance as an acoustic. Its dynamite on the Amp, however....but if you want to play electric, you really should consider a Strat or a Telecaster. Still I can never bad mouth a Fender so she gets four stars. Plus my Guitar Center price (slightly used) was attractive. I paid $189 and while its not quite what I had in mind, I wasn't cheated, either.

Above expectations!

By DONALD

from Boise, Idaho

Comments about Fender Standard Stratacoustic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this used for an electric guitar playing friend who can't seem to bond with an acoustic guitar. When it arrived i took it home to run it through it's paces and make sure everything worked properly. To my surprise it sounds fairly descent for a shallow body ovation/applause style instrument- AND way easier on the pocketbook. I plug into my all tube 12w. amp and (holy-smokes)this little guy steps up and rips some great acoustic tone. I don't say this offhand- i've been playing live for 40yrs and i myself roll acoustic L5 gibsons through 12w. tube amps- you really can't get more tone than that. SO, in conclusion, everybody that whines about the sound not being full acousticly, please, this is NOT a full bodied handmade martin, gibson, or the like, it is a hybid acoustic/electric and meant to be played through an amp- and this is where the instrument shines- while YOU are struggling with feedback and notch filters and all the other accompaning outboard gear to make your 3,000 dollar handmade flattop stop behaving badly on stage, the guy next to you playing his fender stratacoustic is tearing it up and sounding great doing it with none of the accompaning acoustic nightmares most of us acoustic players struggle with. BUY one and rock out bro, you will be surprised!

Get one while they are still available...

By William Brice

from Phila, PA

Comments about Fender Standard Stratacoustic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Remember, this is a made in China product...but it is really slick. Strat neck and body style: a great practice guitar at a really low price that one does not have to worry about. Plays OK acoustically; not very loud, but that is expected by the chamber volume. Action came very high...that is fixable by sanding the bridge nut on a flat surface; if you screw up, an extra bridge comes with the Stratacoustic. I learned how to fix the bridge on youtube...it worked perfectly. Sounds great through an amp; just be aware that acoustic resonance and feedback can be a problem...works great with Flanger, Phaser, Chorus pedals; not so great with reverb or delay through a conventional "hot" tube amp. Get one today..Fender Rocks, as usual.

Breaking news: Fender and Fisher Price had a baby

By Brian Mitchell

from Middle of the mitten

Comments about Fender Standard Stratacoustic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I knew I'd be giving up tone given the thin body but this one's got more issues than that. I made the mistake of ordering this online instead of checking it out at my local Saginaw GC. This will never happen again. Understanding the body was fiberglass prior to ordering, I figured that having the Fender emblem meant their people in China convinced them it was worth putting on the market. BTW... Kudos to the engineer that had the idea to include the equivalent of a spray-on truck bed liner in order to cover up whatever flaws would have been apparent in the finish of the one piece back and sides. You go, boy! At best this should have been going for roughly 60 bucks. Sporting some sorta Disney theme on the front might bump it up another 20 I imagine. Actually, when I returned it the following day to GC, I purchased a big boy acoustic that Drew had just finished putting new strings on. I ended up walking out more than satisfied with my "new to me" Ibanez EWC30 that appears to never have been touched. I give it 3 stars mainly for the amazing timing it provided me to grab this gorgeous Ibanez.

made by a younger generation in China

By Jack McCarty

from Pampa, TX

Comments about Fender Standard Stratacoustic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

the feel and the balance are good as a travel practice guitar, My job requies travel and I dont want to haul around one of my stage guitars or a collector model. My Gibsons are my favorite but too valuable to travel. My standard strat is too quiet to play without an amp, and I don't want to haul that too. At practice tonight all the players wanted to play this stratacoustic and all commented that it felt great.

Don't judge by out-of-the-box condition...

By Patrick

from Little Rock, AR

Comments about Fender Standard Stratacoustic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar needs a set up by someone that knows their way around. Fortunately I'm able to do my own work. From the box, it was "Meh" but sturdy, balanced nicely and fit my needs for a travel acoustic. I took it to my home workshop, put a shim under the neck to increase the angle a little, lowered and shaped/intonated the saddle. Strung with d'Addario 10's phosphor bronze. Plays like a champ now, even unplugged it's got quite a remarkable sound all the way up the neck and the action is now the same as my Strat or Telecaster at 5/64 on bass side 4/64 on treble. I was able to get this with a coupon and paid much less. It's the best travel and couch guitar I own, but even better plugged into a decent acoustic amp with a little reverb and it's a stage winner that feels like your playing a Strat!! Don't be afraid to give this one a shot, it's better than you think!

stratacoustic

By Kimble

from Missouri

Comments about Fender Standard Stratacoustic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have been playing guitar for about 10 years now and this is one of the best that i have gotten. I play mostly country and this guitar gives off a wonderful sound. The tuner on the top of the guitar is excellent. All in all this is a great instrument for both beginners and pro's.
