FENDER DEBUTS ALL MAHOGANY AMERICAN ACOUSTASONICS

Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) today revealed a sampling of its new Fall 2022 product lineups, encompassing both player-driven guitar innovation and longstanding Fender craftsmanship. Designed to support Fender’s mission to give ‘artists wings to fly’, the new offerings cater to players looking to expand their sonic palette whether picking up for the first time, stage-ready performers or collectors adding a new piece of gear to their arsenal.

When Fender launched the American Acoustasonic® Telecaster® in 2019, the guitar entered a brand new market segment without making any functional or sonic compromises. The introduction of the Acoustasonic® model eliminated pre-existing hurdles, unlocking an effortless and versatile playing experience with true Acoustic and Electric tones. Since then, Fender has introduced a Stratocaster® and Jazzmaster®  model built with the Fender® and Fishman®-designed Acoustic Engine. Today, Fender is expanding that series with the American Acoustasonic® All-Mahogany models handcrafted in Corona, California.

American Acoustasonic® All-Mahogany guitar guitars embody the spirit of purposeful innovation that Fender was built on. From acoustic shape-shifting to electric rhythm tones, these powerful guitars use a revolutionary Fender® and Fishman®-designed Acoustic Engine to deliver new sonic expressions from the studio to the stage. Handcrafted in Corona, California at the same factory that makes Fender’s iconic electric instruments, these guitars represent the next era in Fender craftsmanship and innovation – designed for fearless artists seeking an inspirational instrument with limitless new sounds and a great Fender®  feel.

American Acoustasonic® Telecaster® All-Mahogany ($3,299.00 AUD) Elegantly simple, the Acoustasonic® Telecaster® was designed to inspire – mixing future technology with organic feel and playability as a way to connect artists to their music. The fully hollow body features an integrated forearm contour and our patented Stringed Instrument Resonance System (SIRS) – designed to deliver a naturally loud voice with lively harmonics. A smooth-playing mahogany neck and open-pore satin finish make this cutting edge guitar comfortable and easy to play, while the Solid Mahogany top gives new tonal characteristics with warmer meds and smooth lows. On stage, the Acoustasonic® Telecaster® eliminates many of the challenges associated with playing an acoustic guitar live by cutting out feedback, making it easy to access the sounds you need without switching instruments. The Acoustasonic® Telecaster® is powered by the Fender® and Fishman®-designed Acoustic Engine – a proprietary blend of classic analog and future technologies that optimize the guitar’s natural sound –  modifying the resonance to deliver a curated collection of voices. These acoustic and electric voices can be played solo or blended via the Mod Knob to create new sounds. They can also be used simultaneously, courtesy of the Fender® Acoustasonic® Noiseless™ magnetic pickup. Available in Natural or Bourbon Burst.
