    Comments about Fender California Series Kingman ASCE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This guitar delivered 2 weeks ago and I wanted to give it plenty of play before leaving a review and as of now I truly love playing and admiring how well this acoustic is made.....Ihad no idea Fender could produce a acoustic guitar of this caliber ....Well they have and I still cannot believe I have and plan to keep this Fender acoustic...Side by side comparison with my Gibson j35 it holds its own very very well....I'm very satisfied.

      Comments about Fender California Series Kingman ASCE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I bought this guitar as an open box item from MF a year and a half ago. The ONLY problem I could find with it was that the 9 volt battery doesn't seat well in its compartment. No fault of Fender or MF. The simple fix involved a small piece of a toothpick to hold the battery in a little tighter. It would not make a good electrical contact and I went through 2 new batteries thinking that I forgot to turn off the tuner and spent the batteries. I spent an afternoon tweaking the saddle and some adjusting of the intonation and WOW! What a beautiful sounding and looking axe! Not one disappointment! I decided to pair it with a Fishman acoustic amp and again no disappointments! The sound is just incredible plugged or unplugged. It also came with a custom fit Fender hard shell case that is very solid and is plush inside, nice fit with no movement of the guitar. I just wish that Fender would use a different pick guard, I've never really cared for that bland pick guard...
