Fender American Acoustasonic Telecaster – Sunburst

Hybrid Acoustic-electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Spruce Top, Mahogany Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, and Magnetic/Piezo Pickups – Sunburst

10-voice Hybrid Tele with Onboard Rechargeable Battery

Guitarists of diverse styles and tastes are finding their voice in the new Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster. Now you no longer have to choose between acoustic and electric sounds for the gig; this hybrid takes you from folk and bluegrass flatpicking to greasy rock and soul with the flip of a switch. The secrets are twofold: a comfortable SIRS body, built to resonate like an acoustic instrument while giving you the fret access and playability of your favorite steel-string, and the pairing of two cutting-edge premium pickup systems with powerful DSP. In the bridge position, you’ll find a traditional offset Tele pickup packed with bluesy grit and Texas twang, and just behind that, the Fishman Matrix under-saddle piezo system for the soft-edged cluck of your favorite direct acoustic. Seven distinct acoustic profiles take you from solo fingerstyling to Nashville singer/songwriter without additional pedals. An onboard rechargeable battery powers it all. Pair these with a great-playing American Professional profile Tele neck, and the Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster equips you for whatever session awaits.

Acoustic, electric, or both?

How would you like to layer your acoustic tones with heavily processed electric textures? Or volley between sweet acoustic rhythms and tasty Texas leads in the middle of a song? It’s all possible with the Acoustasonic Tele. A 5-way switching system makes accessing these diverse tones fast and painless. Additionally, each position features two distinct sound profiles (clean/crunch, parlor/dreadnought), which can be continuously blended via the rear mod knob. Whether you’re running into a PA or an amp, the Acoustasonic Tele provides great tones at the flip of a switch.

Magnetic bridge pickup

The Acoustasonic’s magnetic bridge pickup achieves authentic Tele-style tone with hum-free performance. This pickup nets you crisp cleans to crunchy overdrive with a tight low end, clearly defined highs, and punchy mids to power through any mix. Surprisingly, this pickup even sounds great without an amp, plugged directly into a PA.

Fishman Matrix under-saddle piezo

The Fishman Matrix is one of the world’s best-selling acoustic pickups. In the Acoustasonic Tele, it provides a syrupy-sweet direct tone and plenty of range to suit many styles of music.

Familiar Tele design

Fender has done a great job of retaining the style and playability of the beloved Tele design for an instrument as advanced as the Acoustasonic Telecaster. From the familiar single-cut body to its great-playing, ebony-capped “Deep C” profile neck, everything about this guitar will make you feel right at home whether onstage or in the studio.

SIRS mahogany body

Unique to the Acoustasonic Tele is its mini-soundhole mahogany body with SIRS resonance enhancement system. Paired with its transverse-braced Lutz spruce top, the Acoustasonic resonates like no Tele you’ve played before, with punchy bass and a sparkly top end that comes across loud and clear through the onboard Fishman electronics.

Onboard rechargeable battery

Swapping out 9-volts is so yesterday. The Acoustasonic Telecaster comes loaded with a 20-hour integrated battery, rechargeable over USB. Even better, this battery allows you to charge and play at the same time — so if you’ve got a portable battery backup, the Acoustasonic can give you days of uninterrupted play time.

The Acoustasonic Tele’s USB-rechargeable battery means there are no 9Vs to swap in and out.
