    Comments about Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Fender isn't exactly known for their acustic line and to be honest there is good reason for that. This guitar is the exception. I've owned mine for about a week now and have been very impressed very comfortable neck decent action and overall decent tone. I played many other guitars in the same price range and for me the Sonoran came out on top. The finish could be better but overall not bad.

    Comments about Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've been playing guitar for 57 years and I've played,built,repaired,Etc., a lot of them, so
    don't get me wrong it's a nice guitar but it's like most all other electric acoustics they all have too much tingy sound.If I was designing a electric acoustic I would locate the pick up away from the bridge more near the sound hole then you would get more of the real sound of the guitar and more resonance...

    Pros

    • Looks
    • Playability
    • Sound

    Cons

        Comments about Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        Very nice fit and finish. Great sound and set up perfect out of the box. The electronics are very nice from the tuner to the ease of battery change to the sound when plugged in. The neck not only looks good it feels and play good too. Quite impressed. Good job Fender.
        Ordered the Olympic white but was sent the Candy Apple Red due to being mis-tagged at the warehouse. Customer service was awesome and sent out a replacement and received it in four days.
        The white is a bit more of a "creamy" color than the pictures convey, but still very nice looking. The red is also very nice.

        Worth it

        By Matt

        from Richmond Hill, GA

        Pros

        • good acoustic sound
        • Good action
        • Good Electric Sound
        • Looks good

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Jamming
          • Practicing
          • Recording

          Comments about Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I'll start off by saying I didn't get this guitar from MF, and it wasn't at the same price. However, it would be worth it even at MF's price.

          Compared to other acoustic/electric guitars at a similar price point, this one blows most of them away. It looks nice, it sounds nice, it has good action and a decently fast neck, and the electronics are great. I was skeptical at first, having had bad experiences with Fender acoustic/electrics in the past, but after playing this at the music store for over an hour, I decided I had to have it.

          I had been looking for a good ac/elec for a while, and had a hard time choosing because of prices. The Sonoran is well worth the price.

          I would definitely recommend this to any guitarist.

          Strat-like neck - great guitar attached!

          Pros

          • Built-in tuner
          • Fishman Pickup
          • Great neck
          • Nice tone

          Cons

          • Action Could Be Better

          Best Uses

            Comments about Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            I wanted an inexpensive guitar to take to the beach and that also had a pickup to supplement my great but non-electric Martin. I'd been thinking about the Sonoran for a few years because I love the neck and headstock. I finally got one last week and am really loving it. I have this guitar hanging in a convenient spot on my bedroom wall, so I find myself picking it up every day. It won't replace my HD-28, but it's the best and most usable guitar I've played in this price range. Really a lot of value here.

                Comments about Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                I played one of these guitars at local music store during four separate trips. Quality of tone, easy action and feel sealed the deal for me. Needed an acoustic for an outside venue and this guitar met all the requirements, plus my limited budget. My wife loves it too and even said she understood why I bought it. The first show only confirmed what I knew, a great buy for a fabulous sounding guitar! You'll fall in love with it too. Go play one and you will get one too. I recommend this guitar without hesitation. Right out of the box it's ready for the show. You'll be proud of making this choice.

                Comments about Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                I bought this guitar because it has a resemblance to my 1983 Fender Balboa acoustic-electric. The Balboa is my baby, which I still use when I play live. I've bought other more expensive guitars to use as back ups(yes even a Martin DMX), but they really couldn't get the sound I was looking for. This Fender Sonoran SCE has it!! Ease of play,full sound, and great looks!! For the price this is a no brainer! I played a set with it at my last gig and was very impressed! Get it!

                Comments about Fender Sonoran SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                I purchased my Fender Sonoran SCE a few months ago and fell in love with it the moment I picked it up, it has a great Stratocaster feeling neck, very well setup out of box with no adjustments needed, the tuners while generic work just fine and are easily replaced with the superior Fender Vintage Style Tuners with no modifications to the guitar whatsoever, I've played many guitars from Martin, Taylor, Gibson, Takamine, Washburn, Seagull, Guild and many many more and this one will outshine any guitars in it's price point (the only exception possibly being the Seagulls depending on the model) if you're on the fence about buying this guitar try going to a local music shop and playing it and you'll fall in love with it the same way I did, it produces a great tone that's unrivaled by most other guitars in it's price point, the only guitar I own that I love more is my Ovation 1862 Custom Balladeer from the 80's and this one easily rivals it in looks and tone. The only real downside is the stock strings with are Fender brand strings but they're easily replaced with a good set of Elixirs.
