Here is the stunner that they released at NAMM this year! We loved the Acoustisonic Telecaster and are now getting to fall all in love all over again!
Fender’s sophomore follow-up to its hybrid line of guitars is the Acoustasonic Stratocaster. From guns-blazing rock and country leads to a studio's worth of faithfully modeled acoustic tones accessible in a flash, the Acoustasonic Strat is the ideal solution for players who need to furnish a variety of sounds from a single stage instrument. The Acoustasonic’s innovative SIRS hybrid body blends classic Strat comforts with rich acoustic resonance to create an unforgettable playing experience, all without the feedback issues common to traditional stage acoustics. Whether you’re primarily an electric or acoustic picker, the Acoustasonic Strat’s Modern, Deep “C” mahogany neck and 12”-radius ebony fingerboard offer something for everyone.
As with last year’s Tele, the Acoustasonic Strat features an internal rechargeable 20-hour battery for all-day performance, from the practice room to the performance hall. There are no 9 volts to swap out, no strings to detune; just run a USB cable into the Acoustasonic’s output jack plate, and from a 4-hour charge you’re set for up to 20 hours of stage time. Forget to charge up? No problem. The Acoustasonic Strat supports simultaneous charge and play. Just pack a USB charging brick or mobile battery pack for an emergency kickstart.
