Fender tone and looks that are ready to hit the stage at an incredible price.

The fabulous-looking California Series T-Bucket 400CE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar stands out from the pack with elegant aesthetics and rocking Fender tone. This stage-ready instrument makes a strong sonic and visual statement with its slick contemporary style and robust onboard active electronics. An exciting alternative to traditional acoustic guitars, this guitar is for the player who wants something different than the norm.

The heart and soul of an acoustic guitar is the top, which must be able to resonate freely for natural sounding, dynamic tone. This guitar incorporates quartersawn scalloped bracing, artfully arranged to reinforce the crisp-sounding premium-grade laminated maple top while allowing it to vibrate freely for greater projection and responsiveness. The premium-grade laminated lacewood back adds a striking look and works in tandem with the maple top to create full, well-balanced sound that shines in any playing situation. For those that want to hit the stage, the California Series T-Bucket 400CE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar features an onboard Fishman Isys III pickup system with active preamp, tuner, volume and tone controls for shaping the amplified voice of the guitar to match any venue. The bound maple neck sports a comfortable "C"-shaped profile that works well for any playing style, as well as a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with a Graph Tech NuBone nut for enhanced sustain while eliminating string binding that can cause tuning issues. The rosewood bridge incorporates NuBone saddles for clarity and tonal consistency along with precise intonation.

The aesthetic appointments include a premium-grade figured top, new fingerboard inlay, rosette and headstock graphics, creating contemporary style that stands out in a crowded field of “me-too” designs. A hard-rocking acoustic-electric guitar with premium sound and sophisticated visual appeal, the California Series T-Bucket 400CE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar is ready to tear it up on stage or in the studio.

      Comments about Fender California Series T-Bucket 400CE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I just picked up one of the these, and it is an awesome guitar! I love the look of it, and it came with great action right out of the box. The factory strings weren't very good (as usual with most new guitars), but a new set of strings made this bad boy come alive! The Fishman electronics and tuner are awesome as well. This is a great guitar for just about any use, including using for gigging. This was made in Indonesia, and my personal opinion is that Indonesian guitars are a better quality guitar vs. Chinese made guitars. I think this is well worth the money in this price range.
