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.

I ordered my Fender American Acoustasonic Telecaster on March 1st, 2019 and then waited until August 20, 2019 for delivery. A bit of an order backlog there due to high demand and limited production at Fender, USA. My first impressions were based on the gorgeous design and construction of this guitar. It is simply the most beautiful instrument that I have ever held! Then, I took it home and plugged it into my Digitech Vocal Live 3 pedal and Bose L1 PA. That’s where I noticed a snag. The guitar sounds amazing, as advertised, but the natural un amplified sound from the sound port is not very loud and I couldn’t really hear the guitar in my Bose PA at normal settings. When I cranked up the guitar volume in my Bose PA it was too loud for backing tracks and vocals. To use this guitar with my Bose L1, I would have to buy a floor wedge or in ear monitor to hear it and that would totally defeat the purpose of using a Bose L1 which does not require monitors. As a result, I returned my Acoustasonic today for a refund. Oh, and Long & McQuade withheld $290 deposit as it was considered a special order but in all fairness I was warned when I ordered it. So, I waited six months for the guitar, five hours to charge it and then played it for one hour only to find out that it wasn’t going to work in my world. Still, I was happy for the experience and this really is an amazing guitar if you are ok with floor or in ear monitors.
