Right to the studio!

By d-dub

from Kansas City/Dallas/Austin/Nashville

Comments about Fender FR50CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

Have been looking at the Fender FR50CE for some time. Played quite a few and liked each one. Finally popped for one for a studio project and it blew down the doors! Great tone, great action. Nice fit/finish on the frets. Pickups were nice and the controls worked great. Natural acoustic tone was so nice we just miked it up. Great value. Much better guitar than the Gibson Hounddog - feature and fit/finish. Have used both and there's no comparison. Definately a great purchase - I'll have this one for quite a while.

Nice but some issues

By Chummy Joll

Comments about Fender FR50CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

I've had my new fender resonator for a few weeks now. It sounds really nice and it looks great. The issue that I have is I bought it for learning some slide songs. However the action is way too low and I have no idea on how to raise the action??. The pickups sound okay but once you but once you hit the distortion you get massive feedback. Also it doesnt come with a case?? Come on for 600+ you should give a case fender. But all that being said I'm keeping the guitar. If you like low action and easy access to the higher frets than this is a really decent guitar. Would be nice to have a front strap knob but you will have to tie your strap to the headstock.

Fender FR50CE Resonator Electric Guitar

By Curtis (buster0 Pennington

from Lenexa, Ks

See all my reviews

Comments about Fender FR50CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

After doing a very serious search for a resonator electric guitar, I read the reviews on this one and ordered it. I was amazed at the beauty of it. It was love at first site. After tunning it, I was more amazed. Such a great sound for a not so big guitar. It is everything I wanted in a round neck cutaway resonator guitar. I tried several open tunnings with it and used a slide, whow it blew me away. The electronic's are great too, you can make this thing sound like an electric, a dobro or an acoustic. This guitar covers a big spectrum. I took it to a gig last night and everyone loved it. I have only had mine for a week, but it seems to be well made. I'll let you know after a year or so, how well it stands up.I think if you every pick one up and play with it, you will agree with all the reviews too. Thank's and happy picking's "BUSTER"

Sam

By Samuel Gadd

from Melbourne, Australia

Comments about Fender FR50CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

The Fender resonator guitar was almost in tune when I took it outa the cardboard box!
Very solid instrument perfect (almost) intonation,action set well.And stays in tune when hammered!
Attention to detail throughout,finish,fittings and electrics/pick-ups very responsive.
Beautiful guitar,hand delivered half way around the world to my doorstep!
Demo guitar-unmarked,needed some new strings...too easy!
Sensational value....I am from down under...would have cost as much as the guitar to ship it down here.

Great guitar, plugged in or not

By Tavo

from Reno, NV

Comments about Fender FR50CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

So many great features for the price. Excellent tone, plugged in or not. The Texas Tele pickup really grabs the sound. My only complaints are the feedback problems I encounter when using the Fishman pickup in the resonator; not unexpected, though, considering it is a common problem trying to amplify a resonator. The other is the split bridge, which occasionally slides around a bit. Not a terrible problem, but sometimes annoying. Action was great right out of the box, neck is smooth and nice. I highly recommend it for bottlenecking the blues!

Comments about Fender FR50CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

my first impression was that it looked and sounded cheap. but when I got it out of the store and home and then to a gig, my mind was changed.Great value for the money. sounds great through PA and through my tweed blues junior with boss 59 bassman pedal and boss compressor.

More than I expected

By Dean-Gjnn8

from New mexico

Comments about Fender FR50CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

I just received one of these yesterday. So far, I love it! It has a seriously cool tone and vibe ? somewhere in between a brass body and a traditional (non-resonator) guitar ? just what I was looking for. If you are looking for a true Dobro sound however, look elsewhere. The acoustic pickup is pretty standard, but the Tele pickup is a bonus. Plugged into my Kustom amp I found myself playing stuff I would normally use my Strat for. You don?t get the resonator sound when using the Tele pickup, but you can blend in some of the acoustic pickup to round out the tone. The finish is good; I found some dark smudges on the binding that cleaned up pretty easily. Minor gripes ? crappy Fender strings and no manual. Not even a simple guide to tell you which unmarked knob controls what. I now own five guitars, and this became my favorite overnight (just don?t tell my Strat!)

Comments about Fender FR50CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

I have played and owned alot of Resonator guitars, but as soon as i played this one i can honestly say its the best one for its price. The looks are great and the sound is amazing. When you plug it into an amp you can hear how great its acoustic sound is, great buy.

Pros

  • Good Tone

Cons

    Best Uses

      Comments about Fender FR50CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

      I've had mine for about two years now. It was truely awesome right out of the box. I do guitar work and setups, so I tweaked it even further. This baby plays as good as my Les Paul. I was able to set the action very low, because the neck was good and true. Acoustically, if you pick it up towards the neck, it soulds like a great sounding acoustic, but if picked back near the bridge, you have the resonator tone. Just look at all these reviews, not one is negitive. It's just that good of a guitar. And yes, if you plug it up, and need any kind of decent volume, you're gonna deal with feedback, as with all acoustics, so you'll need some kind of feedback control device. It's beautiful, it plays great, and sounds awesome...what else can you ask for? It may seem a little high priced, but it's not some cheap made guitar, it's reeally nice. Well, that's my opinion, and ya know, "opinions are like elbows, everyone has a couple".

        • Concerts

        Comments about Fender FR50CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

        I got it, it took a while because it was backordered, but it was so worth it. The tone is great unplugged and plugged in is even better. It loses a little of the resonater crunch plugged in, but that doesn't bother me. Excellent buy and I would recommend it as an ecletic addition to any guitar collection.
