Hello Fender fans!
Quite a rarity for you here, my Acoustasonic Strat. A hollow Strat body with 3 transducer pickups under the bridge.
Used this for gigs every now and again so there a a few plectrum marks. To be expected when guitars are used for what they're made for!
Such a strange thing at first, playing what feels exactly like a normal strat, but getting the warm, loud volume of an acoustic.
Each pick up has an eq inside the guitar too, so very easy to tweek to get the noise you want through a P.A
I've just cleaned up the fretboard and fitted it with a set of Martin Phosphor Bronze 10's. Plays beautifully!
Also comes with original gig bag and certificates etc...
I'll let the Specs below the pictures do the rest of the talking.
Any questions, feel free to ask!
The Acoustasonic Stratocaster guitar is the first true acoustic Strat! Its hollowed-out Alder body is Topped by a patent-pending, brace-less graphite composite Top with a directional wood grain-like pattern that reacts and sounds like Spruce.
Three internal graphite rods placed horizontally across the body make for sturdy construction. The Bridge has built-in controls (to free up the Top for full acoustic potential) that use a three-piece Saddle arrangement for correct intonation, with individual piezo pickups under each Saddle. Three separate pickups deliver unbelievable acoustic tone—especially through any of our Acoustasonic amplifiers. The specially positioned and shaped dual sound holes deliver exceptional natural acoustic tone and surprising volume when played without amplification. All together with a 22-fret bolt-on Fender electric guitar Neck, you’ve got one of the easiest-playing and most comfortable acoustic guitars made.
