This latest big-body offering from the Fender California series sounds as bold as it looks. Aiming for room-filling sound and head-turning aesthetics, it's the perfect gigging acoustic for those on a budget. It demands your attention when it's being played with its metallic finish and full sound, evoking memories of the American folk songwriters of old. Affordability meets playability with the Redondo!
Here's what Fender have to say about the Redondo Player:
Bold and brash, the chest-thumping sound of this big-bodied acoustic was designed to inspire from the moment you pick it up. The exclusive slope-shouldered Redondo body shape has a rich, commanding voice that fills any room. The gloss metallic top, back and sides, as well as a matching painted 6-in-line headstock and crème binding, give it a shot of electrifying attitude. Dynamic, unique and unconventional - like today’s guitarists - the Redondo Player refuses to be bound by the past.
The same no-compromise attitude that gives the Redondo Player its uniquely killer vibe extends to every aspect of its construction. It features optimized bracing for reduced mass and superior resonance, a Graph Tech® NuBone® nut and saddle for greater sustain and a Fishman® preamp system that makes it easy to plug in without sacrificing the guitar’s natural sound. Its lightweight mahogany neck features a comfortable, easy-to-play, slim-taper “C”-shaped profile suitable for any playing style and its laurel fingerboard and bridge further augment its vibrant tone. With superb playability, distinctive looks and unmistakably Fender vibe, the Redondo Player is an inspiring instrument that was made for self-expression.
