Fender has declared a fresh out of the plastic new expansion to its still generally new instrument family with the American Acoustasonic Stratocaster.
The new model (not to be mistaken for the mid-2000s Acoustasonic Strat) is a development of the marriage among acoustic and electric found in a year ago’s Acoustasonic Telecaster. Like that model, this new guitar unites electric pickup tones, normal acoustic reverberation, and the advanced motivation reactions of different acoustic body shapes through Fender’s Stringed Instrument Resonance System (SIRS). The scope of tonal alternatives incorporates everything from a battleship to a messy electric.
Matched with the five-way tone switch and mod handle are five recently considered voices with two modes each for a widespread of installed sounds. Created in view of genuine Strat tone, the new voices are proposed to give the visiting guitarist each tone they’d need during a set, without exchanging between guitars. (Look at Fender’s graph beneath to see the full scope of sounds accessible.)
The American Acoustasonic Stratocaster is accessible for pre-request now for $1,999.99 USD. Watch our demo to hear it in real life, as Joe Shadid plays an organization that uses every one of the guitar’s different pickup settings.
