Electric? No, acoustic!

Acoustic or electric? With its lustrous black finish, the Fender Acoustasonic Stratocaster looks like a normal Stratocaster. But on the inside it’s a bona fide acoustic guitar with a resonating body, spruce top, acoustic strings and - of course - loads of quality acoustic guitar tones produced by the onboard modelling electronics. But this guitar wouldn’t carry the Fender name if its designers hadn’t spliced in some ‘electric’ genes, too. The Acoustasonic Stratocaster can also sound like a normal Strat, if you want. Is this the ideal hybrid guitar? It’s certainly pretty darn close. With a bit of preparation, this guitar will let you play an entire gig, featuring some impressive switches between electric and acoustic tones. By the way, its sister model, the Acoustasonic Tele, has a lot of the same physical design features. Its electronic brain, however, incorporates a range of models with different sounds. It's worth checking out, too.

Three Pickups for a Wealth of Tone

Fender’s Acoustasonic Stratocaster has a mahogany neck with the typical Strat shape, loaded with an ebony fretboard. The hollow body is crafted from mahogany and sports a precision-fitted spruce top with an angled rest for your playing arm. The sound hole is more than just a hole. This is what designers of performance speakers call a carefully tuned sound port. Mounted on the top is a normal acoustic bridge with a meticulously compensated saddle. The first pickup, a Fishman piezo, is mounted underneath the saddle. The second pickup is a single coil, clearly visible and mounted in the bridge position on the guitar’s top. The third pickup is designed to accentuate the hand drumming and thumping that’s essential to many modern acoustic playing styles. These three pickups are integrated into a cleverly designed Fishman electronic system controlled using a five-way switch and two knobs.

Ten Sounds On Tap

Looking for the ideal acoustic guitar for live gigs with the playability of an electric guitar? Welcome to your new favourite instrument. Because the DNA of the Acoustasonic Stratocaster is that of a modelling guitar, it can deliver a wealth of tones, The sounds range all the way from a rosewood dreadnought to a maple auditorium model. The electric Strat sounds are easy to use in a live scenario, incorporating a speaker simulation to let you route the signal directly to a PA. The five-way switch gives you a simple and intuitive way of controlling the ten included models; for added versatility, the Mod knob lets you blend between pairs of models. Depending on your musical style, this guitar lets you play an entire gig on one guitar that can cover both acoustic and electric tones. And thanks to its low weight, you can play this guitar for hours without any niggling back pain.

About Fender

Fender is without doubt one of the most legendary guitar and amplifier manufacturers of all time. The company was founded in 1946 by its namesake Leo Fender († 1991), whose innovative ideas brought a breath of fresh air into the musical world. His Telecaster, Stratocaster, Precision Bass, and Jazz Bass are not only classics – they also continue to shape the styles of musicians in countless genres to this day. Timeless Fender amplifier models such as the Bassman, Twin, Deluxe, and Princeton also enjoy a stellar reputation. Besides maintaining its classic product portfolio, however, the company is also constantly developing new products that make Fender a driving force in today’s music industry.

Gigging Pro Or Couch Potato

All you need to get started is a Fender Acoustasonic Stratocaster and a full-range speaker (acoustic amp, PA). You may want to add a touch of reverb or chorus, and a USB charger: this guitar includes a battery loaded using a standard phone charger or powerbank. If you need more high-gain tones, you might want to add a multi-effect pedal with speaker simulation. Whatever you do, don’t underestimate the acoustic capabilities of the Acoustasonic Stratocaster. The sculpted port mounted into the sound hole produces a characteristic acoustic sound without an amplifier. It might not be the loudest acoustic guitar sound ever, but it’s a rounded and authentic tone. It’s an ideal way to play a bit of guitar when you’re decompressing after work or watching some TV...

Gutes aus Corona (Cal.)

Der Sound der Acoustasonic Strat ist schon ungesteckert erstaunlich gut und angenehm. Aber die vielfältigen Soundvarianten dieser Hybridgitarre sind beinahe so vielseitig wie ein Schweizer Messer und übertreffen meine Erwartungen. Seit über einem Monat spiele ich sie nun schon und bin immer wieder positiv von den Klangmöglichkeiten überrascht. Diese Gitarre schließt die Lücke zwischen meiner Strat und meiner akustischen Fender Casa Grande.
Ein winziger Kritikpunkt: auf der vollkommen schwarzen Oberfläche stören mich die verchromten Befestigungsschrauben. Sonst eine saubere Verarbeitung , wie man sie von einer Fender in dieser Preisklasse erwartet. Der mitgelieferte Gigbag ist ebenfalls super durchdacht und verarbeitet.

Fender AM acoustasonic strat
Jean Dugard 21.07.2020
Bonjour, j'ai utilisé durant 40 ans une Strat de 1964 (concerts/studio). Cette nouvelle Strat en est la projection moderne qui regroupe plusieurs instruments en un seul. Nous retrouvons les qualités intrinsèques du son Fender ainsi que le toucher avec en plus une palette sonore élargie. Parfait pour de multiples usages (avec ou sans ampli, en électro ou électrique, studio et concert) Sa polyvalence est surprenante, vous passez d'une guitare folk jusqu'à une électrique au son légèrement saturé. Cependant, le tirant des cordes est un peu dur à mon goût.

Una maravilla tecnológica y de sonido
Anonymous 12.03.2023
En la familia varios miembros tocamos la guitarra como aficionados. Una parte de mis hijos quería una guitarra acústica y yo quería de siempre una Fender Stratocaster. Me atraía muchísimo la Lava M3, muy rompedora y con la parte electrónica verdaderamente atractiva. Pero una conversación con mi amigo Juan Antonio, cantante del grupo "El Sótano del Doctor" que se había comprado una Acoustasonic Telecaster y estaba alucinado del sonido me hizo interesarme por este modelo.
Terrorífica la decisión entre Tele y Strat, pero después de verme T-O-D-O-S los vídeos comparando las dos me he inclinado por la Strat negra.
El diseño es precioso, y la calidad de fabricación excelente. Me ha sorprendido el peso pluma en comparación con otras guitarras eléctricas. Tenerla en mano justifica el precio por encima de mis planteamientos iniciales. El acabado es espectacular, desde el propio cuerpo de la guitarra y su novedoso sistema SIRS. Las perillas de contra de madrea dan el puntazo de calidad al acabado.
¡Su sonido es una total locura! Es alucinante cómo al tocarla es una acústica, pero con los cascos o con los altavoces es una eléctrica Fender de toda la vida. Maravilla de electrónica, que nos ha resuelto las disputas entre mis hijos y yo. Cada uno tiene lo que quería, pero con posibilidades infinitas de combinar estilos.
Para los que quieran una guitarra polivalente se la recomiendo totalmente. En los vídeos comparando Tele vs Strat, el sonido de la Strat parece más limpio y alegre que la Tele, y por lo que he leído en todos los análisis la electrónico es un punto más moderna. Probablemente la Jazzmaster tenga aún más posibilidades, pero estéticamente me echaba atrás.
Para acabar, hacer un comentario de la bolsa de transporte incluida en el precio, de calidad top. Ligera y práctica y con acabado perfecto, como todo lo que hace Fender.
Creo que nos va a dar muchas alegrías a toda la familia, incluso mi mujer que veía una locura su compra, esta tarde no para de tocarla.

le son de cette guitare est : pur * doux * beau * chaque guitariste a son style musical et sa manière de régler la hauteur des cordes par rapport au manche ( Je pense qu'un réglage de la guitare est indispensable pour qu'elle sonne vraiment comme on le veut )
