NEWS – NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) takes over Anaheim January 24-27th and Fender has wasted no time in announcing a brand new guitar that appears to be breaking some preconceptions about what an acoustic guitar can be.
The features list almost reads like a fight for what can stand out the most. Ten different body style and tonewood combinations, three pickup systems, patent-pending stringed instrument resonance system (SIRS), and a Mod Knob that selects and blends voices.
Fender set out to design this model over three years ago and blur the line between acoustic and electric. With so many acoustic guitars looking the same, it’s refreshing to see one that looks familiar but incredibly technical at the same time. They also clearly weren’t afraid to let this guitar yell that it’s different. Check out the five color options available.
The Acoustasonic Telecaster is available to preorder now for $1999 from Fender authorized dealers. Find one close to you on Fender’s website.
