Fender has expanded its acclaimed Acoustasonic guitar lineup with the Acoustasonic Player Telecaster — their most accessible model yet! Retaining many of the same features found on the American Acoustasonic Tele, this Mexican-made instrument offers a streamlined set of six versatile electric/acoustic voices, with a powerful 'Blend' knob letting you seamlessly pivot between the two and discover unique hybrid timbres.

If you’ve been pining over one of Fender’s American-crafted Acoustasonic guitars for a while, this Player Series version delivers almost all of the same functionality at a much more affordable price-point. It’s simply perfect for modern musicians who want an all-in-one sonic shape-shifter — whether that be songwriters, live performers, studio players or home hobbyists!

Key Features

  • Fender/Fishman-Designed Acoustic Engine — Powerful 2-pickup system; comprising a Tim Shaw-designed noiseless N4 single-coil for authentic Fender electric tones free of hum, and a Fishman under-saddle piezo that offers a wealth of acoustic sounds.
  • 3-Way Switch & Blend Knob — Instrument features 3 voice pairs for 6 "best of" electric/acoustic sounds. Can be used solo, or blended for hybrid tones. Toggle between the pairings with the switch, and use the blend knob to seamlessly move between the A and B voicings.
  • Mahogany Body with Solid A Sitka Spruce Top — Timeless tonewood combination gives the guitar a vibrant character and response. Lightweight design reduces shoulder strain, with sculpted forearm contour maximising playing comfort.
  • Tuned Soundhole — "Waterfall" design controls flow of air into the body, amplifying the natural acoustic sound of the guitar and providing the foundation for the acoustic engine pickup system when plugged in.
  • Open Pore Finish — Thin satin finish leaves wood pores visible, allowing for optimal resonance of the body and top.
  • Deep "C" Neck Profile — Same shape used on Fender's popular American Pro II guitars. Delivers both comfort and speed; slim at the nut and filling out gradually as you approach the neck joint. Enhanced with smooth satin finish.
  • Rosewood Fingerboard — A material adored for its dark and beautiful grain; adding warmth into the sonic mix.
  • Narrow Tall Frets — Offer a controllable feel for wide vibrato and pitch-perfect string bends.
  • Sculpted Neck Heel with Bevelled Plate — Just like on the American-made Acoustasonic Tele; providing easy access to the highest frets.
  • Staggered Die Cast Tuners — Tuning machine posts decrease in height from low to high strings; increasing the downward pull over the nut to maintain even string tension.
  • Graph Tech TUSQ Nut — Boosts sustain and minimises unwanted tuning slips.
  • 9-Volt Battery Power — 20+ hours of playing time, with a quick-access compartment on the back of the body making battery swaps a breeze!
  • Included Deluxe Gig Bag — Rugged, high-quality design guarantees solid instrument protection.
  • Made in Ensenada, Mexico — Crafted in Fender’s brand-new, state-of-the-art acoustic factory.

6 Acoustic/Electric Voices

The Fender Player Acoustasonic Telecaster offers 3 distinct voice pairs — a curated collection of acoustic and electric sounds. These can be used on their own, or combined via the dedicated 'Blend' knob to unlock an inspiring spectrum of new sounds.

Position 1: Electric Voices

  • A: Clean — Delivers traditional Fender Tele tones via the Noiseless pickup.
  • B: Dirty — Turns up the heat, for searing Telecaster "twang!"

Position 2: Piezo Voices

  • A: Lo-Fi Clean — Uses unaffected sound of the under-saddle pickup to create a lo-fi acoustic tone.
  • B: Lo-Fi Crunch — Adds dirt to the under-saddle pickup; replicating the sound of a double-tracked electric and acoustic guitar.

Position 3: Acoustic Voices

  • A: Mahogany Small-Body — Offers plenty of warm, dry and vibrant mid-frequencies with a focused low-end.
  • B: Rosewood Dreadnought — Balanced across the spectrum, with crisp highs and balanced bass. It’s the classic American acoustic sound!
