Fender American Acoustasonic Stratocaster | First Impressions with Liz Phair


collapse expand iconDescription

The Fender American Acoustasonic Stratocaster fuses Fender's comfortable solid spruce and mahogany SIRS Strat body with a cutting-edge pickup system for a kaleidoscope of tones. A real Fender N4 Noiseless single-coil is paired with a Fishman Matrix undersaddle pickup and percussive top sensor to shift between six distinct acoustic voices and sizzling electric leads with the flick of a switch. A rechargeable 20-hour battery supports continuous play so you can craft tone poems for hours on end. Whether you're conjuring country ballads or conjuring rock anthems, the American Acoustasonic Stratocaster is purpose-built to inspire.

Shape-Shifting Acoustic Engine

At the heart of the Acoustasonic Stratocaster is the innovative Fender and Fishman-designed Acoustic Engine. This sophisticated system combines three complementary pickups—a Fender N4 Noiseless magnetic pickup, a Fishman undersaddle piezo pickup and a Fishman top sensor behind the bridge—to deliver a spectrum of acoustic and electric tones with stunning realism. Select from six acoustic voices modeled on classic body styles like dreadnought, jumbo and parlor using the five-way blade switch. Dial in reverb, chorus and delay effects with the Mod knob for even more tonal variation. A separate volume control for the magnetic pickup lets you blend in searing electric leads and chunky rhythms on the fly.

Familiar Electric Playability

While the Acoustasonic Stratocaster sings with an acoustic voice, it maintains the slick playability of an electric guitar. Its Modern Deep C-shaped mahogany neck and 22-fret ebony fingerboard provide a smooth, low-action feel. And with a slim, lightweight SIRS body, supreme upper-fret access and contours modeled on Custom Shop Strats, this innovative hybrid plays as comfortably as your favorite electric.

Continuous Power for Non-Stop Inspiration

The Acoustasonic Stratocaster features an integrated rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides up to 20 hours of playing time on a single charge. A helpful LED indicator displays current battery level so you're never caught unplugged. Combined with the guitar's natural acoustic resonance, the battery-powered Acoustic Engine gives you a portable creative tool for crafting songs anywhere inspiration strikes.

Premium Gig Bag Included

Fender includes a rugged gig bag to keep your Acoustasonic Stratocaster safe in transit and storage. Padded side handles and a durable nylon shell protect the guitar from knocks and bumps, while an accessory pocket stows cables, straps and other necessities. Molded feet prevent wear and a plush lining cradles the guitar in comfort.
