Anything and everything...
You've never had a guitar that gives you quite as much freedom over your sound as the Acoustasonic Stratocaster. It's that special. And its breathtaking sonic ability all starts with the sensational electronics loaded into it. A collaboration between Fender and acoustic pickup masters Fishman, they're designed to ensure that anything is possible in your music.
You'll enjoy warm, natural acoustic sound. The Acoustasonic's specially-designed acoustic engine delivers exquisite clarity. The Fishman piezo pickup will always communicate the natural acoustic voice of the guitar perfectly. And it's got a broad dynamic range that'll accommodate anything from deep, heavy strumming to sweet, high-end fingerpicking.
Need that extra bit of power? Never fear. The Fender Acoustasonic has got you covered. Alongside the acoustic engine, it's also been loaded with a noiseless magnetic Strat pickup. This will give you that raw, electric sound needed for blistering solos and searing power chords - the classic Strat sound. So switching from sweet acoustic playing to all-out rock 'n' roll has never been easier.
...and even more
We're still not done talking about the electronics - we just couldn't fit everything under one subheading. Because here's the best bit: you've got your sweet acoustic tones, and your sizzling electric power. But how about having both at the same time? You can combine an acoustic voice with the electric tone from the magnetic pickup for new, truly unique sound in your music. Explored uncharted territory, and create something that's entirely individual to you.
Oh, and just a bit more
Yep. It gets better. Just flick that pickup switch and twist the Mod knob. Because between them, they give you 10 different voices to play with. So from a small-body maple acoustic, to a rosewood dreadnought, to a fat, bellowing electric, you'll never be limited in how you can sound. This is a full arsenal of guitar voices - all in one brilliant instrument.
Huge acoustic range thanks to premium tonewoods
No amp? No problem. Despite all of its amazing electric features, the Acoustasonic still sounds fantastic when it's not plugged in. Its acoustic body provides a superb natural resonance and projection. And it's made from a range of premium tonewoods. A unique black limba body brings a booming low end, along with a huge range that sounds full and crisp at any frequency - especially in the midrange. Finally, an ebony fingerboard provides a smooth surface to ensure each note sounds sharp and defined.
Straight out of the Dream Factory
It's fitting that a guitar this special was created in Fender's iconic "Dream Factory" in California. Because it really is the stuff of fantasy. Aside from that seemingly never-ending stack of awesome electronic features, there's a hell of a lot more to love about the Acoustasonic Stratocaster. Tirelessly designed from the ground up, painstaking attention-to-detail has been paid to every single aspect of this guitar.
Maximum playing comfort is achieved through a modern "Deep C" neck profile, fitting snugly to the player's hand and eliminating cramp. Experience complete fullness in sound thanks to Fender's patent-pending Stringed Instrument Resonance System - you've never heard Strat sound with sustain this good before. Every note will sing beautifully. And a Graph Tech TUSQ nut brings optimum string stability, ensuring you enjoy consistent tone in everything you play. Hand-crafted, guitar-making excellence really doesn't get better than this.
Style that really stands out
It doesn't take a genius to work out that the Acoustasonic isn't your average guitar. Just look at it. Everything about it screams individuality. And that's exactly what makes it such an attractive instrument. Blending a slim electric profile with a more natural, acoustic aesthetic, this really is a guitar that's unique in every way. Don't be a sheep - dare to be different.
