The FA-135CE acoustic-electric guitar from Fender is designed for players looking to amplify their sound. Its solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides provide a balanced, resonant tone that rings out whether unplugged or amplified. The built-in Fishman pickup and preamp system offer simple controls to shape your tone, from bright and crisp to full and rounded.

Solid Wood Construction Provides Rich, Full Tone

The spruce top and mahogany back and sides of the FA-135CE provide a rich tone with plenty of warmth and depth. Spruce is a popular top wood for acoustics thanks to its ability to produce a balanced tone across the tonal spectrum. The mahogany back and sides add further depth and resonance. Together, these tonewoods give the FA-135CE a full, rounded voice that rings out loud and clear.

Onboard Fishman Electronics Offer Amplified Sound With Tone Control

The Fishman pickup and preamp system provides amplified sound with simple onboard controls to shape your tone. Adjust the volume, bass, middle and treble to go from a bright, cutting tone to a fuller, warmer voice. The preamp requires a 9V battery (sold separately) to provide power for the pickup and tone controls. With the FA-135CE, you have an acoustic that sounds great both plugged in and unplugged.

Slim, Comfortable Neck Ideal for Beginners and Smaller Hands

The FA-135CE features a slim neck profile with a 1-11/16" nut width, ideal for beginners and players with smaller hands. The slim, comfortable neck makes it easy to play chords and navigate the fingerboard. A 12" fingerboard radius and medium jumbo frets also aid in playability. Whether you're just starting out or have been playing for years, the FA-135CE offers a neck built for comfort and ease of use.

Cutaway Body and Stylish Design

A single cutaway provides access to the upper frets of the FA-135CE, enabling you to play solos and riffs higher up the neck. A stylish natural finish highlights the wood grain of the spruce top. Vintage-inspired cosmetic touches like the Fender logo at the headstock, wooden pickguard and bridge give the FA-135CE a classic look reminiscent of Fender's early acoustic-electric models from decades past.
