With exotic tone-woods all the rage this season, Fender have dropped some stylish acoustic designs into their guitar selections. The limited edition acoustics offer two new distinct styles on a new electronic and hardware mix, while the beginner's guitar invites newcomers with a flourished palate of welcoming designs.
Among the additions, the FA-235E Concert rocks a striped ebony top with laminated mahogany back and sides, while the mahogany continues to stretch up the neck. With 25.3-inch scale, an Indian laurel Fender Viking style bridge and Fishman electronics round out the model, which is built around a Paramount-styled frame.
Meanwhile, the FA-345CE Auditorium's spalted maple top showcases the acoustic's woody roots. The laminated lacewood back and sides and tortoiseshell binding outlines the model's classic-California designed frame and further differentiates the piece from the Concert, which are otherwise identical in electronics and hardware.
And for the entry-level range, the CD-60 Dread V3 is your classic dreadnought body shape for comfort and the ever stylish bold laminated mahogany back and sides. With three finishes to choose from, those being the standard natural colour, black or sunburst, the beginner's guitar has a standard 25.3-inch scale and a comfortable C-neck to welcome first-timers to the brand.
