    Product Description

    A year after launching their successful Acoustasonic Telecaster, Fender has now unveiled an S-shaped version of its popular acoustic/electric hybrid design - the American Acoustasonic Stratocaster. Very much in-keeping with the original formula (albeit with a Strat body and headstock shape), the Acoustasonic Stratocaster does however boast a slightly different control layout and now features 10 built-in voices rather than the 5 found in its Telecaster counterpart, including 3 electric sounds instead of just 1.

    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 extremely convincing acoustic sounds along with tones that you'd expect from a standard Strat.

    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 the latter from an aesthetic standpoint, the Acoustasonic Strat, however, embraces more of a conventional acoustic construction.

    With a full hollow body crafted from Mahogany, you can expect 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 to achieve the response and harmonic breadth of a typical acoustic guitar, where you can feel the vibrations resonating through your body.

    Unlike most acoustics though, Fender kept playing comfort in mind when designing the Acoustasonic Strat. Adding a comfortable forearm contour, this allows you to strum chords without feeling any pain or fatigue - making it a great live workhorse. And despite the body being hollow, the thin and compact Strat shape largely remains intact, meaning that electric players will feel particularly at home on this instrument.

    Comfortable Mahogany Neck

    The Acoustasonic's body is paired with a bolt-on Mahogany neck, adding 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. But 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 with its Acoustasonic Strat, 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. However, 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.

    Mr Tim Harris5th Jan 2021

    The acoustic sounds are a lot more convincing than the electric sounds to my ear, but it's a very wieldy guitar and sounds perfectly adequate unplugged. Ideal for live playing at Open Mic nights and such where you need to play through a PA, sounds much better than a piezo on an conventional acoustic. For electric sounds, a Mexican Telecaster or Strat and a pedalboard would give a much better result for similar money.
