Bold and brash, the chest-thumping sound of this big-bodied acoustic was designed to inspire from the moment you pick it up. The exclusive slope-shouldered Redondo body shape has a rich, commanding voice that fills any room. The gloss metallic top, back and sides, as well as a matching painted 6-in-line headstock and crme binding, give it a shot of electrifying attitude. Dynamic, unique and unconventional - like today's guitarists - the Redondo Player refuses to be bound by the past.

The same no-compromise attitude that gives the Redondo Player its uniquely killer vibe extends to every aspect of its construction. It features optimized bracing for reduced mass and superior resonance, a Graph Tech NuBone nut and saddle for greater sustain and a Fishman preamp system that makes it easy to plug in without sacrificing the guitar's natural sound. Its lightweight mahogany neck features a comfortable, easy-to-play, slim-taper "C"-shaped profile suitable for any playing style and its walnut fingerboard and bridge further augment its vibrant tone.

With superb playability, distinctive looks and unmistakably Fender vibe, the Redondo Player is an inspiring instrument that was made for self-expression.

Closest StoreToronto (Bloor St.), Ontario
I ordered this at the end of May even though it was out of stock. Thanks to COVID it took nearly 4 months to arrive. Black is the only colour option, though I might have preferred the blue. Life is harder for us lefty players. On first impression it's a really good looking guitar. The glossy black with the cream binding gives it class, and the mahogany fingerboard and neck give it warmth. As an electric guitar player, I find it challenging to cope with the sheer bulk of this thing. I should have expected that. The strat-style neck makes it very playable. The sound when strummed is robust and assertive (chest-thumping, even), but can be quite sweet and subtle when played finger-style. The on-board tuner is a nice convenience, and the preamp means I can plug it directly into my audio interface for recording in a DAW. No need to fuss with microphone setups or software amp simulations. Heck, with an iRig interface I can even record into my iPhone's voice memo app. Of course, you could also plug into an amp or PA for performing live. There's very little documentation with this guitar, just a two-pager on the tuner/preamp and a one-pager on adjusting the truss rod. I would have liked the care and maintenance guide. I had to find and download that from Fender's site. I'm looking forward to getting to know this guitar.
