The American Acoustasonic Telecaster embodies the spirit of purposeful innovation that Fender was built on. From acoustic shape-shifting to electric rhythm tones, this powerful guitar uses a revolutionary Fender and Fishman-designed Acoustic Engine to deliver new sonic expression from the studio to the stage.

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 Fender's patent-pending 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. On stage the Acoustasonic Telecaster eliminates many of the challenges associated with playing an acoustic guitar live by cutting out feedback, and 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 proprietary blend of classic analog and future technologies that optimize the guitar's natural sound, and then modify 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.

Handcrafted in Corona, California, at the same factory that makes Fender's iconic electric instruments, the Acoustasonic Telecaster represents the next era in Fender craftsmanship and innovation designed for fearless artists who want an inspiring instrument with limitless new sounds and a great Fender feel.

Product ExperienceI've tried it
Closest StoreSt. Catharines, Ontario
Had a chance to try one of these out (not at L&M). Was initially sceptical as it looked like it should say Fisher-Price on the headstock rather than Fender, but after tinkering around with it for 5 minutes, I was hooked. The tones this machine puts out are nothing short of incredible. Very authentic acoustic modelling, and while such tones could (mostly) be attained with a solid body with piezo, the hollow body internal microphone really works wonders, especially if you slap your guitar around a bit while playing, plus it is really light - something that could be played for hours and hours on end (till the fingers bleed). Aside from the very high price-point, and the fact that Fender has yet to make a hard-case to fit this beauty, I would have given it a 5/5 review. Good job Fender, curious as to how well the electronics and the hollow body hold up to gigging guitarists, but I'll probably pick one up next year, after any bugs (if any) are worked out), and also once Fender ships with a proper case.
