Fender Acoustasonic Strat Exotic Acoustic/Electric Guitar in Cocobolo

Fender's advanced hybrid meets exotic woods

Description

A year after launching their successful Acoustasonic Telecaster, Fender are back with the S-shaped version of its popular acoustic/electric hybrid design - the American Acoustasonic Stratocaster. The Acoustasonic Strat boasts an improved control layout and now features 10 built-in voices rather than the five found in its Telecaster counterpart, including three electric sounds instead of just one.

Still powered by the same revolutionary Fender and Fishman-designed acoustic engine, this hybrid instrument allows you to seamlessly change from convincing acoustic sounds to plugged-in electric tones completely on the fly. Fundamentally, the Acoustasonic Strat is designed to give electric guitarists a familiar and playable feel, yet projects convincing acoustic sounds along with tones that you'd expect from a standard Strat.

Fender's Ultimate Hybrid Guitar gets an Exotic Wood Upgrade!

Hollow Strat-Shaped Body

The most striking aesthetic feature of the Fender Acoustasonic Strat is its soundhole placed at the centre of the body. Whereas other acoustic/electric hybrids seen before have tended to stay closer to an electric style, the Acoustasonic Strat embraces more of a conventional acoustic construction.

The full hollow body crafted from white limba paired with an exotic cocobolo top produces rich lows and a bell-like mid-range. Using Fender's 'Stringed Instrument Resonance System' (SIRS) and innovative 'Transverse' bracing, this design helps the Acoustasonic Stratocaster achieve the response and harmonic breadth of a typical acoustic guitar, where you can feel the vibrations resonating through your body.

Comfortable Mahogany Neck

The Acoustasonic's bolt-on white limba neck adds even more tonal depth. Covered in a smooth open-pore satin urethane finish and cut to Fender's modern "Deep C” profile, the playability of this guitar is simply outstanding and will not feel alien to keen Fender players.

Adorned with a sleek ebony fingerboard, this material ensures a slippery feel while adding some pristine top-end bite. Fitted with narrow tall frets, these are more akin to the type of frets you'd expect to find on most acoustics. To keep electric players happy, Fender has ensured that the Acoustasonic Strat has 22 frets, with a 12" fingerboard radius and a sculpted heel providing a modern playing experience.

Innovative Fender/Fishman Electronics

Using an electro-acoustic guitar onstage has its issues, where persistent feedback can potentially ruin a set. That's why Fender has sought to eliminate that common problem by utilising its smaller body shape and versatile Fender/Fishman-designed acoustic engine to cut out unwanted noise.

The acoustic engine is a proprietary blend of classic analogue and future technologies, optimising the guitar’s natural sound and modifying the resonance to deliver a curated collection of voices. These acoustic and electric voices can be used independently, or blended via the "Mod" knob to create experimental sounds. They can also be used simultaneously thanks to Fender's Acoustasonic Noiseless magnetic pickup.

High-End Hardware

The Fender American Acoustasonic Stratocaster's Modern Asymmetrical bridge is intonated for optimal note balance across the fingerboard, with the high-quality Graph Tech TUSQ pins and nut keeping your tuning rock-solid. It's also worth noting that the Fender Acoustasonic Strat comes with a Deluxe Gig Bag, letting you easily transport it from venue-to-venue.
