Electric? No, acoustic!

Acoustic or electric? Clothed in its transparent sonic blue finish, this 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...

Hätte alles für 5 Sterne, wenn nicht....
therrie 20.02.2021
Das Wichtigste an einer Gitarre ist wohl Ihr Klang - 5 Sterne, einfach faszinierend!
Warum es dennoch leider insgesamt nur 4 wurden, liegt an Unzulänglichkeiten, die ich bei einer Gitarre in diesem Preissegment zudem mit dem Namen "American Fender" nicht erwartet habe:
Unverschliffene Stege, die seitlich über den Hals im Halb-Millimeterbereich hinausragen, spürbar beim Hinübergleiten.
Auch ist die Kurzanleitung zum Laden der Gitarre wirklich kurz und irgendwie auch unzutreffend:
Angabe Ladedauer 4-5 Stunden, danach solle die LED Dauergrün anzeigen. Das passiert hier leider nicht. Die LED blinkt einmal kurz grün, und geht dann gleich wieder auf rot, selbst wenn man die ganze Nacht lädt. (Hat sich geklärt: Das mitgelieferte USB Kabel ist defekt)
Und ein hauseigenes, abgestimmtes Ladegerät hätte ich im Lieferumfang auch erwartet - Fehlanzeige.

Schön wäre auch, wenn man die Einstellung der Regelknöpfe in Ihrer Stellung mittels einer gut sichtbaren Markierung auf einen Blick erkennen könnte. Das wurde einem natürlich schlichtem Holzdesign geopfert.
Trotz allem bleibt die Faszination der modulierbaren Klangvielfalt und Varianz. Die möchte ich nicht mehr missen. Also echte Kaufempfehlung mit Nachbesserungsvorschlag an Fender.

Gute Idee
Hermann U. 01.09.2020
Hervorragende Verarbeitung, was man bei dem Preis allerdings auch erwarten kann. Erstaunlicher akustischer Klang. Nur unwesentlich dicker als eine normales Strat. Große Klangvielfalt. Dass man einen Westernsatz gewählt hat, ist wg der Akustik nachvollziehbar,midert allerdings den Gebrauchswert als E-Gitarre. Es ist auch ein 11er Satz aufgezogen, der für Wenigspieler etwas anstrengend sein dürfte. 10er wären mir lieber und werde ich auch ausprobieren. E-Git.-Saiten werden Probleme mit der fest eingestellten Intonation haben.
Könnte man auch am Lagerfeuer spielen, aber dafür nehme ich dann lieber weniger wertvolle Instrumente.
Ich hab sie noch nicht so lange, aber ich glaube es war eine ganz gute Idee, sie anzuschaffen.
