Description

Following the massive success of the Acoustasonic Telecaster, Fender's Acoustasonic Stratocaster adds a new member to this revolutionary line of electric-acoustic guitars. The Acoustasonic Strat leverages the Fender/Fishman Acoustic Engine to blend a range of stunning acoustic and electric sounds with the comfort and playability of Fender's legendary double-cutaway electric.

Acoustasonic Stratocaster Features

  • Thinline mahogany body with transverse-braced spruce top
  • 25.5"-scale C-profile mahogany neck with 22-fret ebony fingerboard
  • Fender/Fishman co-designed pickup system, 5-way switch, Mod knob
  • Asymmetric bridge, sealed die-cast tuners

Classic acoustic construction

The Acoustasonic Strat's chambered mahogany body combines with a transverse-braced spruce top and a tuned "waterfall" soundhole for a beautifully resonant sound that's easy for the pickup system to transform into a variety of classic acoustic tones.

Fast, comfortable neck

With a deep-C profile and fast 22-fret ebony fingerboard, the Acoustasonic Stratocaster's neck gives all the comfort and playability the Fender Strat has been known for over the decades.

Revolutionary Fender /Fishman electronics

Fender worked together with Fishman Electronics to combine classic analog and modern technology to create the Acoustic Engine. It enables Acoustasonic instruments to bring to bear a full palette of curated acoustic and electric voice that are easily blended via the guitar's Mod knob. This system delivers rich acoustic sound onstage and in the studio without the hassles of feedback or tricky mic placement which can obscure performance and slow down the creative process.

Accurate tuning and intonation

The modern asymmetric rosewood bridge with undersaddle piezo element ensures great intonation, while die-cast, high-ration sealed tuners guarantee the guitar it fast and easy to tune, and stays in tune.

The Acoustasonic Strat is an ideal instrument for the performer who wants great, hassle-free acoustic sounds on stage and in the studio, as well as the ability to get classic Strat tones. It offers tremendous versatility, and with its ability to blend acoustic and electronic tones, is almost like adding an extra guitarist to the band.
