I was looking for a guitar for my father for Christmas, who is an experienced player. Once I saw this guitar I was in awe. Flamed maple top made this guitar look beautiful, and one of a kind. Now since this guitar is in the moderate price range I knew I had to do some research before making any rash decisions, which I might have done because of the guitars beautiful color, and look. Reading reviews, and watching demos reveal this guitars beautiful sound. A light, metallic, and full sound; it had a certain quality; "flare" that other guitars lack. Finally I told myself "enough research it's time to get this guitar". Four business days later my guitar had arrived. I took it out of the box and the guitar is even more beautiful in person, as I inspected it carefully I noticed that; SUPRISINGLY! it was handled with care (bias due to previous online orders). I tuned it, started playing it, fell in love with it only to be slapped in the face by reality: I bought this guitar for my father. After accepting that I had to give this guitar up I knew that my dad would love it. When he opened up the case and saw this guitar, he was in love too. I knew I made the right choice. Bottom line is this guitar is great for new players, old players, and returning ones. Get this guitar!!! But be warned you might wanna get it for yourself before anyone else.

    Comments about Fender T-Bucket 400 CE Flamed Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I originally was out to purchase an affordable acoustic/electric to generally use for at home practice and to play for fun. I was drawn to this particular guitar due to it's beautiful appearance and price point. It didn't take me long to realize the breadth of the tonal qualities this instrument is capable of producing, and I was sold on the spot. This guitar is way under priced considering the quality of both it's quality construction and beautiful sound! Try it, and you will not want to put it down!

    awesome basic acoustic!

    By steve james

    from Harrisburg, PA

    Comments about Fender T-Bucket 400 CE Flamed Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I recently purchased the 400 CE from Guitar Center in Harrisburg. I wasn't actively looking to buy an acoustic; i was in the store with a friend and i picked this off the wall just to play along with some chords. I couldn't believe how easy the action is and how beautiful the tone is and how well balanced it feels. I couldn't put it down. I went back in the next day; played a bunch of acoustics (some of which cost 3 times what this cost) and this was by far my favorite. This guitar feels great, looks great and really sounds great. For the price; you just can't beat it. I've heard some people complain about feedback problems when it's amplified to a loud level - i can't speak to that yet as i play in my house. It sounds beautiful w/out amplification. I can say the on-board tuner is nice and very accurate. The salesman told me that he thought their guy did some work on it out of the box. This may be the case as the action is really fantastic and w/out any buzzing. My fingers don't hurt after 2 hours of playing! Great job GC! I love this guitar!!!

      Comments about Fender T-Bucket 400 CE Flamed Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I have been playing guitar for a good amount of time and this is my second Fender guitar along with the Tony Alva Sonoran and I have to say this guitar is amazing for what you pay for it you get more than what you think you would. It is a Fender so it is going to be good but when I picked it up after a guitarist of 40 years played it he said if he didn't have so many already he would have bought it and I played Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd I knew it was going home with me. Such a good sound I would recommend this to any guitarist. 10/10

        I have played numerous High-Dollar Gibson, Taylor, and Martin Guitars, and this one can run with the best of them in terms of sound quality and playability! I have used this in my church band for about 6 months now and i am constantly surprised by how nice it is! People often say to me, "Wow, that has to be a $1000+ guitar, right?". I have had nothing but great experiences with this guitar.

          Bought it for my girlfriend as a Christmas gift. I took it out of the box before hand, and almost changed my mind about gifting it and keeping it for myself.
          Guitar looks amazing, and sounds like it looks. In my opinion it plays just as good, if not better, than some $1,000 guitars.

          Comments about Fender T-Bucket 400 CE Flamed Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I was originally shopping for the cheaper T bucket guitars and they sounded just ok. I was upgrading from my old guitars and sold them already. When I picked this up and played it, there was a clear difference in tone and quality. It sounds great unplugged and plugged in. I can't put this thing down. it is a beautiful guitar in person. The pictures don't do it justice. I'm not into gold and wasn't looking for that but it looks right on this guitar.

          Just recently Bought the 300CE for the wife and absolutely love it. When I heard they had an all natural I got pretty exited. I have only gotten to play one of the 400CE models but didn't have the money at the time. The next day it was gone. I will be waiting for its return, or orderin it soon. Fender Acoustic, Acoustic/Electric guitars are extremely consistant in quality. Cant Wait to pick this one up and play it again, then buy it and take it home.

            Comments about Fender T-Bucket 400 CE Flamed Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            I'm a bassist, and wanted an accoustic/electric to play around with, and get back into guitar. I looked at Martin, Taylor, and Yamaha as well. I set a budget for this purchase to not go over $400. That put the Martin and Taylor guitars out of my range. I was disappointed as I didn't think I would find one that I would like and that played well in that $400 range. But as I looked at and played this Fender, a smile came back to my face. It plays extremely well. The Maple Flame top is beautiful, and it produces a very nice all around sound, plugged in or accoustic! I am very pleased with this purchase! The guys at Guitar Center were very helpful and answered all of my questions with good knowledge of the product. Toby, Rex and the guys went out of their way to make sure I was purchasing the right guitar for my needs. Thanks guys!

              For those that want but can not afford those expensive Taylor or Martin guitars this Fender delivers that same full rich sound that you would get from those two costly brands. You get the most bang for the buck with this Fender acoustic/electric. The more I play this guitar the more I like it. I would buy this again.

                The flame maple wood on this guitar is beautiful. Although the top is laminate, I think the guitar has a beautiful, bright sound. And plugged in, it's even better. The finish is glossy and perfect. The action on the strings is as good as it gets on an acoustic. I don't think a guitar tech could improve on the setup, just as it came from the factory. The gold grovers keep the guitar in tune, and the tuner and preamp work just fine. No complaints whatsoever.

                  I bought this guitar a month ago and it is by far my favorite out of my collection. It has such a bright and rich tone to it. The flame maple is gorgeous in person, the pictures don't do justice. I was looking for just another buy and i came across this, went to go play it in stores and fell in love. I was shocked how great it sounds plugged in as well. Bottom line, this guitar sounds and looks amazing for the price Guitar Center is giving it away at!

                        I purchased this last year shortly after I started taking guitar lessons. As a 50+ year old I decided to get a nice guitar to learn on but not go all out. I searched online and visited Guitar Center and another music store here in town. I quickly gravitated towards this guitar because of the looks but then got hooked after I played (not that i knew a lot at that time) and asked opinions of others in the stores. Unfortunately this particular version of the T-Bucket 400 CE was discontinued and was hard to find as the one I had been drooling over in GC disappeared! Fortunately before I settled for a different guitar another new one appeared at GC and I snagged it. Been strumming away ever since. It sounds beautiful with good strings but sounds lackluster with poor strings.

                        I'm still not as good as I would like to be but this guitar is a keeper! It's absolutely gorgeous and plays and sounds great. I'm a little biased not having much experience with other acoustics but this one has given me no reason to try another. Unfortunately Fender discontinued this particular model and recently released a newer version which I don't think is nearly as attractive. If you're looking for a nice guitar and come across one of these I recommend you try it!

                        We bought this for the worship team at my church. Everyone that has tried it really likes it. We did have to go through 9 different stores and I had to call to get it on the way though. Would have been better if GS had been a bit proactive in letting me know what the hold up was,
