Electric? No, acoustic!

Acoustic or electric? With its lustrous black finish, the Fender Acoustasonic Stratocaster looks like a normal Stratocaster. But on the inside it’s a bona fide acoustic guitar with a resonating body, spruce top, acoustic strings and - of course - loads of quality acoustic guitar tones produced by the onboard modelling electronics. But this guitar wouldn’t carry the Fender name if its designers hadn’t spliced in some ‘electric’ genes, too. The Acoustasonic Stratocaster can also sound like a normal Strat, if you want. Is this the ideal hybrid guitar? It’s certainly pretty darn close. With a bit of preparation, this guitar will let you play an entire gig, featuring some impressive switches between electric and acoustic tones. By the way, its sister model, the Acoustasonic Tele, has a lot of the same physical design features. Its electronic brain, however, incorporates a range of models with different sounds. It's worth checking out, too.

Three Pickups for a Wealth of Tone

Fender’s Acoustasonic Stratocaster has a mahogany neck with the typical Strat shape, loaded with an ebony fretboard. The hollow body is crafted from mahogany and sports a precision-fitted spruce top with an angled rest for your playing arm. The sound hole is more than just a hole. This is what designers of performance speakers call a carefully tuned sound port. Mounted on the top is a normal acoustic bridge with a meticulously compensated saddle. The first pickup, a Fishman piezo, is mounted underneath the saddle. The second pickup is a single coil, clearly visible and mounted in the bridge position on the guitar’s top. The third pickup is designed to accentuate the hand drumming and thumping that’s essential to many modern acoustic playing styles. These three pickups are integrated into a cleverly designed Fishman electronic system controlled using a five-way switch and two knobs.

Ten Sounds On Tap

Looking for the ideal acoustic guitar for live gigs with the playability of an electric guitar? Welcome to your new favourite instrument. Because the DNA of the Acoustasonic Stratocaster is that of a modelling guitar, it can deliver a wealth of tones, The sounds range all the way from a rosewood dreadnought to a maple auditorium model. The electric Strat sounds are easy to use in a live scenario, incorporating a speaker simulation to let you route the signal directly to a PA. The five-way switch gives you a simple and intuitive way of controlling the ten included models; for added versatility, the Mod knob lets you blend between pairs of models. Depending on your musical style, this guitar lets you play an entire gig on one guitar that can cover both acoustic and electric tones. And thanks to its low weight, you can play this guitar for hours without any niggling back pain.

About Fender

Fender is without doubt one of the most legendary manufacturers of guitars and amplifiers. The company was founded in 1946 by Leo Fender (d. 1991), whose innovative ideas provided musicians everywhere with countless new creative impulses. His classic designs include the Telecaster, the Stratocaster as well as the Jazz and Precision basses, instruments that continue to define musical genres today. Timeless Fender amplifier models such as the Bassman, Twin, Deluxe or Princeton enjoy a stellar reputation. The company not only nurtures its classic portfolio, however, but continuously develops new products that make Fender a driving force of today’s music industry.

Gigging Pro Or Couch Potato

All you need to get started is a Fender Acoustasonic Stratocaster and a full-range speaker (acoustic amp, PA). You may want to add a touch of reverb or chorus, and a USB charger: this guitar includes a battery loaded using a standard phone charger or powerbank. If you need more high-gain tones, you might want to add a multi-effect pedal with speaker simulation. Whatever you do, don’t underestimate the acoustic capabilities of the Acoustasonic Stratocaster. The sculpted port mounted into the sound hole produces a characteristic acoustic sound without an amplifier. It might not be the loudest acoustic guitar sound ever, but it’s a rounded and authentic tone. It’s an ideal way to play a bit of guitar when you’re decompressing after work or watching some TV...
