OVERVIEW

Laminated spruce top, basswood back and sides, and Fishman ION-T preamp system.

The Fender FA-135CE Cutaway Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar is built on the concert-style platform for a sleek, modern design. The laminated spruce top features X-bracing for bright, punchy tone, ideal for lead guitar. The neck is nato, and the back and sides are laminated basswood-both tone woods known for letting the mid and high frequencies sing out.

Thanks to the basswood back and sides, the Fender FA-135CE Cutaway Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar is very light, avoiding strain to your neck or back during prolonged playing. The chrome tuners offer precision tuning. The guitar also features an impressive electronics system, featuring the Fishman ION-T preamp and built-in chromatic tuner, which provides lightning-fast tuning and amplification. The preamp features a volume dial, phase and contour buttons, and a tuner power button.

The FA-135CE Cutaway Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar is fashioned with a natural gloss polyurethane finish, aged fretboard and body bindings, and a white concentric ring rosette that offers a striking contrast, and an appearance as beautiful as its sound.

Case sold separately.

I've been playing guitar for over 40yrs and I have never bought a guitar in this price range that could measure up to this guitar, and I have played just about every guitar on the market and not to leave out the hundreds that have been discontinued. I consider myself a pro musician and a good judge of guitars. If you purchase this guitar you will get your monies worth right out of the box and when you see, hold, touch, and play this guitar, you will immediately understand.

I bought this as a second guitar to leave it tuned in E flat. The first thing I noticed out of the box, the bridge pins were cracked. I replaced them and then noticed the strings had deep grooves in the bridge saddle. I had barely played this guitar. I replaced the saddle. While re-tuning the guitar I heard a cracking sound coming from the bridge. I then saw that the bridge is pulling away from the body of the guitar. Keep in mind it does not have the tension of standard tuning. I know it is inexpensive but I expected better from Fender.

A little much on the treble side

By Craig Tidmore

Comments about Fender FA-135CE Cutaway Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Overal it's worth the price........
It's a good starter guitar and it sounds pretty good to me,I've played guitar for 30 years so I've played numerous guitars.I've had it for 3 months now and I have only had to tune it 2 times so it will stay in tune and I play it everyday.

Comments about Fender FA-135CE Cutaway Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is a must have for any musician out there. In general this is a well rounded instrument that need not be overlooked because of the price. Fender payed attention to detail, all the way down to the strings. Despite the value your getting, your also getting a guitar that's probably twice what MF is selling it for. Good job MF and Good job Fender.
The electronics on this guitar are awesome. You are allowed to tailor your sound pretty much how you want. Fishman says it all.
Being a Fender, quality is one thing they are known for. I wouldn't expect anything else from Fender.
Honestly, This is pretty much why i bought it. I figured 150 wasn't much to lose if it didn't work out for me, but boy was i suprised.

    Pretty Good

    By Scott

    from undisclosed

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Fender FA-135CE Cutaway Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I recommend this for the beginner to upper intermediate player.
    Pick ups and tuner are fairly good, not a professionals guitar. Furniture is solid, but not top of the line.
    The body is lightweight and solid construction. The finish is heavy and glassy.
    The overal quality is pretty good, it is a budget guitar.
    The sound is actually good plugged in! Acoustically, it sounds a bit tinny, not a warm quality.
    It comes set up okay, strings are nice and not rusty, and it does come with a battery, patch chord and truss wrench!
    For the price +/- this guitar is very good.

      Comments about Fender FA-135CE Cutaway Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      When I purchased this guitar I was looking for a cheap acoustic that I could play around the house and I wouldn't be heartbroken if it got dinged up. Basically I wanted a beater. I play mostly electric guitar. I have a bunch of really high end electrics that I love but I missed having an acoustic around the house. Right out of the box I was disappointed but I wasn't expecting much. The action was pretty bad. I tweaked the neck and sanded down the bridge saddle quite a bit now it plays like a dream. I first tried John Pearce extra light 10's on it and it sounded really thin and tinny but I put a set of Elixir Polyweb Custom Light 11's on it and it sounds full and beautiful. I'm really happy with this purchase. It took a little trial and error and some tlc but the result was a guitar that is easy to play and sounds great. As far as looks it's pretty basic. The top is really light which I'm not crazy about but it will darken some with age. I removed the pickguard and I think it improved the overall look of the guitar. The electronics are decent it sounds pretty good through a tube amp. The on board tuner is handy. For the money you can't go wrong. I'm not sure I'd recommend this guitar for a beginner only because right out of the box it was pretty hard to play and I've been playing for almost 20 years.

      I had read some positive reviews on other sites and decided to take a chance on this guitar. I have purchased other guitars in this price range and was very dissapointed.

      All I can say is "WOW!". This thing plays and sound beautiful. Similar to others in very high price range.

      I am very pleased with this purchase.

      Get one, you'll love it.

      Comments about Fender FA-135CE Cutaway Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      the guitar came from the factory filthy, not dirty, filthy. stain had run down from the neck across the top of the guitar to the pickguard, so obviously no quality control at all, giving the appearance of something very cheap. the g string broke the first time i tried to tune it and that was just up to d. the tuner isn't as good as my ear and that is not saying much. the electronics are awful. the base overwhelms everything else even when turned down as far as you can still get any sound on both the guitar and the amp.

      i bought this for the fender name, never again. bottom line...comparing this product to a musical instrument is like comparing a big wheel to a motorcycle.

      By Brandon Caron

      from NY

      Comments about Fender FA-135CE Cutaway Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This Guitar sounds ok and has decent features..my main dislike would be the inner electronics (made in china of course)..definatly a guitar for begginers. I have played electric guitar for years and never had an acoustic so i figured i would buy a cheap acoustic electric and i got what i payed for. im happy with my purchase but i would recommend this for someone who is a begginer or wants to build strength and accuracy which is why i bought it ... whoever is learning how to play at the moment or looking to buy their first guitar should start with an acoustic or acoustic/electric and you will find that playing an electric is suprisingly easy

            I am new to playing guitar and decided to learn to play because its supposed to be good for a traumatic brain injury. I wanted to buy a guitar from a known reputable brand so, when I placed my order I knew that the item was on back order but didn't mind waiting. Unfortunately when the brand new guitar arrived the strings were rusty and no matter how hard I try the guitar will not stay in tune. Bottom line-I absolutely would not buy this guitar again.

                I am a guitar teacher and recently, one of my students bought this guitar. We have experienced buzz from loose bracing on the top as well as 3 frets that were not seated properly in the fretboard. Even if these issues were not present, the guitar does not project at all and the sound is flat. At least the intonation was good. In my opinion, there are many better options for the price.

                      I purchased this guitar, advertised as in "showroom" condition" with some small scratches around the pick-guard and gently used as you might expect for a demo model. It was priced less than one new, in box. When I got the guitar (a few days earlier than promised), it appeared to be brand new. The pick guard still had the plastic protective film on it and there was no evidence of any use. Very pleasantly surprised. (I have purchased several items including guitar, amplifier, etc. from these folks and have never been disappointed, either with the producs or the service). This guitar was purchased as a temporary replacement for one that I must have re-set. I will probably play it as much or more than the other guitar when I get it back from being repaired. The only negative I found is that the bass tones seem to be a bit weak and un-sustained. Aside from that its a good guitar at a great price and perfect for what I needed.

                        This is a great little guitar for the price. It plays well it looks good and for the price you can't beat it. It has a fishman piezo pickup that sounds good and the tuner works really well. It is light and just really plays easily. I will be changing the strings here shortly whenever I get a chance or finally put it down.

                        I had purchased a new Epi A/E that was a piece of work so I thought I would try the Fender. Out of the box it compared favorably with the Epi in build and sound. The fret action is better on the Fender but had to change out the strings,too dull in acoustic mode, went to DR ZE-10's and the sound improved 50% or more. Love the on-board tuner, not always accurate but close enough to start. Great sound when plugged in. Priced right for the value rec'd.
