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 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.

      When recording via the preamp, I needed to boost the
      treble a bit to get good balance across the spectrum.

        I bought this for my son as a Christmas Present. He wants to learn to play and this Guitar proved to be excellent for a young adult learner. It will serve him well even after he becomes an accomplished player. The tone is excellent and the electronics are also terriffic. It stays in tune and is an bargain for the price. I'm an accomplished guitarist and I enjoyed playing this instrument!

              Comments about Fender FA135CE Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              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.

              Comments about Fender FA135CE 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.

                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.
