Hang ten with this Strat-style Fender acoustic.
This Fender California Series acoustic-electric guitar features a soft C-shaped maple neck and Strat headstock, perfect looks for hanging out at the Malibu beach with Frankie and Annette and doing the twist as the surf crashes in. The Fender Sonoran SCE '67 guitar comes with vintage-style machine heads, gold pickguard, and a cutaway dreadnought design that screams nothing but Fender.
A solid spruce top provides a warm, punchy tone, and the unique, Fender-designed cutaway dreadnought body with a tighter upper bout makes for a more comfortable fit for just about any player. This Fender acoustic-electric guitar has a real electric feel—the soft C-shaped neck and electric guitar strings make the 1967 Fender Sonoran guitar a breeze to play. Strat players: this one will feel like coming home.
Completing the package is a stage-ready Fender FTE-3 active preamp with volume slider, 3-band EQ, and built-in tuner.

Fender acoustics have been much maligned over the years, and in some cases, justifiably so. This stigma, for the most part, comes from Fender's primary focus on the low and mid range areas of the acoustic market, and basically leaving the high end of the market to the Gibson's, Taylor's and Martin's of the world. In spite of this, Fender has, on occasion, managed to produce some nice acoustics. Every blue moon you'll run across one that can hold its own with one of the big boys, but it is rare. Realistically, none of us should expect a Fender Sonoran, Kingman, or any other $400-$500 acoustic to measure up to any of the high end brand models. Simply put, the wood quality, construction and set-up on the expensive ones will almost always be superior. What you can expect from one of these guitars is to have something that will work for you, especially if you invest in a good professional set-up. In doing so, you just might avoid some disenchantment and have an instrument you will enjoy playing. Most Fender acoustics are simply not very playable straight from the factory which is one of the reasons they are not more expensive. Understand this and prepare yourself, and you will be happier. Appearance wise, the Sonoran '67 Limited is unique with its blend of conventional and exotic woods. To me, the reddist tint on the neck of mine kind of takes away from what could have been an absolutely beautiful guitar. It is still a very attractive package however; nicely figured Milkwood back and sides with grayish highlights and subtle golden tones, it just could have been exceptionally beautiful had the neck been a more natural maple color. With that being said, this guitar, for what it is, and properly set up, is a fine instrument, and is more than adequate for the hobbyist or even the semi professional. The sound is not really big, but it's crisp and moderately vibrant. Decent sustain and clarity. Good usable electronics and tuner. Overall, it's a great player (after set-up) with adequate tone, good looks, and yes, the vibe; a sweet affordable gem that should only get better with time.
I have a feeling that that this guitar hasn't recieved the attention and acclaim it rightfully deserves. For that reason we'll call this guitar the "sleeper." Unique in its hybrid A/E design, alot of thought and love went into the sleeper. The milkwood body is not something you will find anywhere else. It gives the sleeper a sound unlike others. I'm curious about this. As it's not easy to find much info about this wood type. I give it all 5 stars partly because of sentiment value but mainly due to being one heck of a great axe. Fit, finish, uniqe soud quality and butter-like playability. Smooth electronics puts the sleeper in a class like no other. If you are at least a little curious, find one at your nearest dealer or just cop one here. You won't dream of sending the sleeper back any time soon. Thanks for your attention. And god bless America. Thankyou!...thankyou!
I'm throwing down five stars on everything because for this price, you can't find something as amazing in quality as the Sonoran SCE '67 Limited. I've been dinking around on this thing for about six months now and I've played it on stage, and everywhere you can imagine. People give me compliments on the sound and the appearance of this baby wherever I take it. The pictures don't do it justice; it is a beautiful guitar. The built in preamp on this one is a bit better than the standard SCE, and the tone just sparkles. If you do buy this one, expect to adjust the saddle down a little, my action shipped in a bit high for my taste. If you are used to Strats, this neck will feel right at home. I'll be keeping this one in my collection no question.
