FENDER ADDS TRADITIONAL MODELS TO CALIFORNIA SERIES ACOUSTICS

Announced a couple of weeks ago at their worldwide virtual deal conference, Fender has added a range of California Traditional models to their California series acoustic guitar range.

California Traditional ($699-$1,599)
Available Now In an effort to offer guitars that speak to the traditional acoustic player, Fender has expanded the California Series™ to include California Traditional models. The series combines Fender’s electric legacy with the earthy, organic vibe of a traditional acoustic guitar. The bold, balanced sound of these instruments make them a natural partner for the stage and the studio. With a solid spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides – plus natural rosettes, binding and pickguard –the designs are not flashy, rather they embody the relaxed feeling of Southern California. A 6-in-line tilt-back headstock is new to these models and gives the guitars increased sustain, while the solid tonewoods – including all-new solid mahogany on the Special models – allow for beautiful resonance. Every guitar is paired with a Fender- and Fishman-designed preamp system voiced specifically for each model to reproduce the natural sound of the guitar when plugged into an amp. With necks inspired by Fender electrics, these guitars are comfortable, easy to play and they stand out in the crowd. From unique, traditional aesthetics to superb sound, the California Traditional acoustics are a go-to for players of all levels.
