OVERVIEW

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

The Fender FA135CE Concert Acoustic 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 FA135CE 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 FA135CE 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.

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.

I bought this guitar for my kids and was really pleasantly surprised. It is a very inexpensive guitar, but it is surprisingly playable and the feel and sound are significantly superior to other guitars in this price range. It is a concert style guitar so it is a shallower than a traditional dreadnought which makes it great for younger or smaller players, but it still feels like a "normal" guitar to me. It has a built in tuner and the Fishman pickup and electronics are great. We bought the sunburst and it is a really nice looking instrument. I'd recommend this without hesitation for anyone looking for a student guitar or anyone who needs to stay under 200. The sound probably won't blow anyone away if you are playing it unplugged, but plugged it it is actually passable, especially if you are doing a lot of hard strumming or something else that doesn't require a lot of nuance.

      Comments about Fender FA135CE Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      A very good value for the price. Nice size and thickness for a woman or younger player. The sound is a bit bangy. The factory setup has some buzz. Some experimentation with string gauge would probably solve it. Was a bit disappointed in how short the battery life was for the electronics.

        Comments about Fender FA135CE Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        This guitar is a very good guitar. I bought this one open box and no signs of any damage or scratches. Still had the plastic covering the pick guard. Although this isn't a thousand denaro Martin, it plays well and sounds great. Even on my Peavey VYPYR amp. I bought this guitar to play at times I didn't want to plug in my Epiphone SG Pro which has extremely powerful and loud pick ups comparatively. Or to play on my patio, living room or anywhere else without the amp. I don't regret this purchase.

                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 because I'm away from home and needed a guitar for practice and to keep in shape. I like it very much. It's comparable to guitars at four times the price. I'm well pleased.
