Overall I am glad I bought this guitar. Can't say how many nice acoustics have gone south with weather changes, heat and cold. This does not by any means sound like a flat top but it gets the job done nicely regardless. The Fishman gives a nice even full sound. Almost sounds like it has a bit of chourus going on. I would probably use my regular Tele in a band setting. But this is really nice for acoustic combos or solo playing no sweat.
To start I am an acoustic palyer first. Telecaster player second. Amps used with this guitar is a Fender Acoustasonic Ultra Lite, and a Blues Junior. This guitar takes some time to get your personal sound. Which mostly involves what strings are going to work for you. The guitar came with nickel wound 11s. I didnt like those acoustic wise so i put on Phosper Bronze light guage acoustic strings. Thinking they might be to heavy took them off and put on some new NW 11s again and went to the gig. I did not like the 11s at all the sounded thin and no guts. Not much I could do for that night. Got home put PBs back on. The acoustic pickup sounded great but no volume on the neck pickup as the PBs are not good on magnetic pickups. Took them off. How many times is that now? Put on a set jazz nickel wound light guage strings 12 to 52 . Heavier than the 11s but lighter than the PB acoustic lights. NOW we are talking turkey here. Tightened up the truss rod and a whole new sound. Pluged in my American Tele to compare sounds. The Acoustasonic is deep and rich. This will be now my main acoustc giging guitar. I like the #3 Dreadnaught setting so far. Mixed with a little neck pickup from time to time. Using two amps is too much to drag around to a gig but its pretty amazing playing with the seperations of sounds. I thought I might swap out the pickup for a standard tele pickup but the twisted tele sounded better with the Fishman. (At least for now). The guitar is too nice for a gig bag. I had a nice case for it.
I did not get to test drive one of these before I bought it on line as no one carried them I could find so took a shot in the dark and order it on line. I half expected the Mexican brand to be not so hot. The finish on the body and neck was very nice. The body did not look like it was thrown together with floor scraps. The neck has a bit darker tint on it so its not maple white. The 12" radius neck is perfect for this style of guitar. The fret edges were finished fine. I'm not sure I like the split tuner posts. I may swap them out for standard tuners. They seem to stay in tune OK. The neck pickup sits a little slanted. I will mess with it the next time I change strings.

So far, a great disappointment. Received instrument in good condition, surpassing my expectations. After about 5 hours use over less than a month, lost acoustic side of stereo output.
Contact support, told that extra warranty not applicable, take to authorized service center. Nearest one 80 mile round trip. No big whoop, told by tech it is a jack problem, but part is proprietary, needed instrument for upcoming shows, jack arrives week or two later, finally find time to trek back to repair shop, jack installed, tested at shop after repair, played for an hour or so at home, all is good. Plugin next day for woodshedding, totallydead!!! Check cables, battery, amp, get aggravated, do next show w/old axe, call shop.
Make time to haul up there again, tuns out piezio pickup connection failure, fixed again, tested at shop again, use for rest of summer gigs with some success and enjoyment, at first November rehearsahl, dead again, both outputs. Second time contacting manufacturer, told to bring back to shop again. Instrument was purchased NEW after a good deal of research from a REPUTABLE dealership for less than retail, but still to me ALOT OF DOUGH.
This COULDA been a great guitar if they WOULDA
put it together properly & professionally. This third trip to the warranty shop equals about 240 miles of travel,
in a 20 mpg vehicle, and only because i find the tool to work so well for this particular group, i'm gonna give it another try, and hope that before a year is out, as i've only had it 8 months, i'll be able to get thru a couple three shows & rehearsals without any more aggravation.

Fender Acoustasonic Tele

By FenderBrad

from Idaho Falls, Idaho

See all my reviews

Comments about Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster Electric Guitar:

Bottom line, the Fender Acoustasonic is a quality instrument. Most will love this guitar if planning on running the acoustic cable into a P.A. or similar amp. The twisted Tele pick up does not shine with all pedals. Sounds great with the right ones. The pick up sounds like a tele bridge pick up when plugged strait into my Fender Vibrolux or Fender Deluxe. I think this is what Fender was going for with this pick up. This guitar is like having several acoustics, but plays better. Stomp on a pedal and drop in a lead. Huge wow sound with the right set up.
This is a fantastic guitar with the right set up. My best set up in the stereo setting running the acoustic channel in my Boss Looper and strait into my PA. The electric cable goes to a Vox Saturator pedal and a Boss DD5 delay, then into my Fender hot rod deluxe. All I can say is wow! My wife gives me the put the guitar down, or I will send it back look.
When I plugged the guitar into my Marshall JMD -50, this was a major ship wreck. With work I can make this guitar sound ok. Not acceptable to me. The Twisted Tele pick up hates this amp with this guitar. When I turned up the amp, the feed back was not musical or happy in any form. If you plan to use this guitar with an amp such as this I would guess you will be very unhappy with this guitar.
This guitar with my Fender Vibrolux is nice. Take the acoustic cable and plug into the Normal channel and the Electric cable and go into the Bright channel. I exchange the Vox Saturator and replace it with the Ibanez 808. This set up also puts a big smile on my face.
The guitar, I love the neck but the radius is right for me. My other guitars are Gibsons and a Fender Eric Johnson Strat, all have the same radius. Feels like an expencive guitar. The tuners keep my guitar in tune with full tone bends. The guitar is a little sharp at the 12 fret, no way to fix problem with the bridge. Still better then any acoustic I have ever owned. This guitar is very light unlike my other tele, not a deal killer for acoustic players. Guitar sounds loud and good when not amplified. Remember to pull cable out of guitar or it will cost you in batteries. Over all - happy with the quality of the instument, good job Fender.

Comments about Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster Electric Guitar:

Phenominal guitar, been waiting for something like this for a long time. It is very much a "niche" guitar only a few will appreiate it for what it does. Very versatile on stage, people can't figure out where the sound is coming from.lol. I must say that if you want to get the most realistic acoustic sound....RUN IT STRAIGHT INTO A PA. I think these guitars were designed to sound their best when NOT running through the pre-amp section of a guitar amp. This truely makes a WORLD of difference. On stage I run the acoustic signal through the main speakers and the electric signal through my Fender Prosonic amp. I can switch between the two right there on the guitar or play both together....simply AMAZING !!!!

Yes, it sounds like an acoustic

Comments about Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster Electric Guitar:

When I bought the Fender Acoustasonic I was looking for an onstage authentic acoustic sound that was easy to play with arthritic hands and this guitar delivers. Eveyone who plays or hears it is impressed. Most often, I play in mono mode direclty into the board. When I need both sounds, I put the acoustic jack directly into the PA and the electric jack into the amp de jour with what ever bells and whistles I am toying with at the moment - but the primary use of this guitar is as an acoustic; I string it as such so it is a little heavy for all the bending and fretboard tricks that I would use with a typical electric. If you are playing rhythm all night it's nails. If you are doing a lot of lead you still might want to drag along two guitars. I love it.
Amazing versatility

Do everything guitar?

By rickster1

from Great Lakes State

See all my reviews

Comments about Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I wanted to like this guitar and played it in the store several times checking out the sound with various amps. In the end I bought a Taylor T5 Classic. It's made in the USA and the quality IMHO is a few steps above this Fender, a few steps up in price too. The Fender tele pickup is too hot and harsh for my ears, the acoustic sound is muddy, as one reviewer said, like chorus. The main problem with these dual purpose type guitars is that you have to use electric guitar strings, in order to use magnetic pickups, instead of acoustic strings and that hurts the sound if you want a true acoustic tone, there is no natural reverb either, like on a true acoustic. Bottom line is it's wishful thinking that you are getting 2 guitars in one. The dilemma of amps also throws a monkey wrench into the equation. You need a high frequency speaker to produce acoustic tone...The new fender acoustasonic amps address that problem.
fishman acoustic pickup and a tele pickup covers allot of ground.
made in Mexico

Comments about Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster Electric Guitar:

Here's the scoop: I just received my sunburst Acoustasonic Tele. Beautiful out of the package--great wood grain, excellent fit and finish. Action was good, not great but playable. Neck pickup sounds very good--custom shop twisted tele has a warm but meaty sound with just a sparkle of tele twang. Very versatile. Switch to the Fishman bridge pickup and this is where everything went south. While the acoustic sounds are fantastic (best hybrid sound short of an expensive PRS), this one had a massive grounding hum. Not a hum like from a single coil pickup but a really loud grounding hum. It largely went away if I touched anything metal on the guitar--neck pickup, volume or tone controls. Because I'm not into being electrocuted (and the loud hum is a significant drawback to the sound quality), I sent the guitar back to MF for an exchange. That was another major hassle--had to call three times because the call kept being disconnected. Received a pre-paid return shipping label (that's good) and was told by MF to insure the guitar for its value but UPS said I couldn't insure the guitar because the shipping was pre-paid. To insure it, I would have to pay for the shipping. Mixed messages, to be sure. When I get the new guitar, I'll update my review.

    I WANTED TO LIKE IT....REALLY

    By Lucky Larry

    from Los Angeles

    Comments about Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    I relly had high hopes for this guitar. After reading the positive reviews and waiting weeks to get the sunburst one, it finally arrived. When I took the guitar out, the first thing I noticed was the action completely off and the string height at the 12th fret was way too high. The nut was not cut properly which provided uneven height across the strings. The neck was poorly finished and the tuners don't hold the strings in tune. This was before I plugged it in. It was very difficult to plug the cord in and after I did, NOTHING! The culprit was a drained battery- factory installed (WHY WAS IT DRAINED?) After replacing that, I did get some cool acoustic sounds but the connector was intermittently cutting out. If they did a better job with quality control, I would keep it but it makes me think of what else can go wrong. No directions either. I've had better quality with $100.00 Chinese made guitars. Sorry, guys.

    Wow....what fun

    By Scott Tuller

    from Adirondacks of New York

    Comments about Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    I rarely write reviews for products I use but this guitar took me by surprise. I play in a rock band and often use an acoustic guitar and an electric guitar. The acoustisonic arrived on friday afternoon. At our gig the same evening I plugged one part of the y cable into a genz benz shenendowah and the other into a princeton chorus and moments later this guitar was singing on both platforms. Its real beauty, however, is when you are running both amps at once. A beautiful blend of sounds. I own a few fender guitars and amps, but this is the product that most surprised me. Way to go Fender.

    Needed set up to make it playble. I didn't get along with the twisted tele pickup. Noisy and harsh. Changed for a Barden neck pickup. Improved. Played it every weekend for two years and then halfway through a gig one evening the volume suddenly cut to about half and got real thin. Took it to an authorized dealer and after about a week they called me and said the circuit board was bad and a new one is five bills. Got a pretty sharp electronics guy working on it now to see if it can be salvaged. Not too happy with it right now.

    Comments about Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    I actually own 2 of them. They are a nitch guitar for players that primarily play acoustic but want the occasional electric sound.I also switched out the neck pick-up on one of them. Much better. The original is too bright for the piezo. I use the sterio jack through a small PA head splitting the acoustic/electric sound. It's great. That way you can add distortion/overdrive/effects to just the electric side.I also had intermittent acoustic cut-off. It seems the input jack is verrrry sensitive. But the set-up on the guitars is superb. Great for finger picking.I bought a used Zoom 5005 Accoustic pedal and the sound is incredible. It gives the acoustic sound more balls.

    Trade-in your acoustic!

    By Steve Kudlacek

    from Omaha, Ne

    Comments about Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    First let me say if you play an acoustic live, you want to try this guitar!I have been a semi-professional, singer/songwriter for over 20 years. My primary instrument was an acoustic 6 or 12 string because I could never get a great semi-hollow or solid body to sound as good as my acoustic. That all changed with this guitar!Starting with the weight and feel, it is ideal for any acoustic player who desires a more versatile live instrument. While the bridge is only a single bone with no adjustments like an acoustic, intonation is not lost. The only beef I have with the setup is the tuners are a little weak and have a super-low turning ratio.Let's talk sound. The Fishman pre-amp on board has 5 different voices, all true to the acoustic natural sound. They rely in a Piezo Pickup in the bridge. You have a volume and tone for the pre-amp which is separate from the standard volume & tome pots on the front. Took me about 5 minutes to find my sound, have not changed it since. You also have the ability to mix-in a Twisted Tele pickup on the neck. This pickup is super hot and does not mix well with the bridge pickup. May be great for leads, but for a strummer, as most acoustic players will be, it is far too hot. I will be trading the pup for something a little more mellow.Finally, the most ingenious part of the guitar is the ability to run the Piezo (brighe) and Twisted Tele (neck) pickups out separate sides of the stereo output jack. That means you can run to two different amps (board for the Acoustic and Amp for the Electric) or just run it in mono and push each or both pickups to a single source. I will definitely use the stereo when I get the neck pickup replaced.I have used the strings that came with the guitar - Fender specials - and acoustic strings, they both sound awesome! Do not use electric strings on this baby, they will be way too thin and bright.Overall, this is an awesome alternative for the live acoustic player. I get better tones and control from it than I could get with any $2-3,000 acoustic. Thank you Fender!!!

    Comments about Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    So...here's the thing. I love the idea of this guitar. I love the look, I love the feel, I even love the tone of both the acoustic and electric pickups. I love that I can plug into two amps and go stereo, incorporating acoustic tones with and underlying electric feel. I love all of this about this guitar. However, it is poorly constructed. The first one that I received had a popping in the stereo mode when I wiggled or moved the guitar cable...I sent it back to Musician's Friend and they sent me a new one. The new one seems to work pretty well. I plugged the acoustic side through another preamp, and the pickup went dead...However, it works fine when run direct or through an effects pedel. BUT...the electronics panel has a gap (no big deal, but cheap looking) AND the battery stays engaged constantly with this one. The electronics are supposed to shut off when a guitar cable is removed from the guitar...mine stays on all of the time - so I have to remove the battery after use or it will drain. Overall....it sounds good - great idea-- bad execution. Sorry Fender, I wanted to love it.

    Comments about Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    I also witnessed a demo at NAMM. It was played directly through a SWR Blonde acoustic amp and a Fender Vibrolux with a stereo cable. A selector switch allowed quick access to 4 different acoustic guitar sounds, including parlor, jumbo, dreadnaught, and I forget the fourth. All sounded fantastic. When switched to stereo (both pickups) you get very distinct acoustic and electric guitar tones at the same time. It sounds convincingly like two guitars playing together. Versatility like I've never seen or heard before. I'm ordering mine as soon as they are released.

    Nice Guitar!

    Comments about Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    I am a professional church musician primarily. I usually play an acoustic guitar amplified through a Baggs DI with a K&K pickup in the guitar. I am VERY happy with my acoustic tone. The sound of this tele is not as good as that. However, it sounds very good for an acoustic model. With the two pickups mixed together, it is a wonderful and warm sounding electric tone. The neck is pretty skinny compared to my acoustic (42mm vs. 44.5) but it is playable. The fit and finish are very good and the stereo cable is nice--though it could be longer...

    Comments about Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    After hearing a couple of demos on youtube, I decided to get this guitar hope that it would be at least "half as good" in "real life". The guitar exceeded my expectations. The acoustic sounds are much better than I've been able to achieve on my Taylor 414CE. There were a few quality issues (lose input jack & high action) but fortunately those are easy to fix. I play a lot of acoustic and electric blues and this is the perfect guitar.

    After reading all about this guitar I decided to get one and I gotta say, WOW!, the acoustic sound is flawless. It's easy to play, stays in tune, and really makes the ordinary sound brilliant. My only beef is that my 'twisted tele' pickup doesn't work, so I'm waiting for Fender to send a new one to my local repair shop. The fix will be free, but my patience is wearing thin. Also, go ahead and buy a hardshell case and new y-cable.

    I recieved my acoustasonic telecaster last week and holy crap it is amazing. I ran the acoustic through a kustom sienna 65 andtheelectric through a fender hot rod deluxe and the sounds were heavenly. the acoustic sounds better than my martin mmv with a piezo pickup, and the twisted tele pickup is sick. the electic is kinda twangy, but thats to be expected from a tele. my guitar has three problems with it however; the d string buzzes at the nut when played open(obviously if it is buzzing at the nut), the action is a bit high for my taste,and the frets buzz a little at about the 12th fret. Im not worried about these defects though, I am going to get it professionally set up. the only thing that is annoying though is that when you leave it plugged in, it drains the battery in about a day, and then the electric doesnt work as well as the acoustic. It seems like they could have made it so that when the acoustic pre-amp ran out of batteries, the electric would still work, but oh well. overall, this guitar is freakin amazing!!!!
