I’ve been waiting to try this guitar, and was not disappointed … a great gigging acoustic, and a lot of fun to play with the various acoustic tones it offers plus a pure electric tone (and blendable, to boot). Lay down some pure acoustic backing on a looper and then turn on the electric pickup with your favorite amp simulation pedal and rock out. And just enough volume not plugged into an amp to practice quietly in the dead of night. Fender sez:
A shape-shifting acoustic-electric with a revolutionary Fender and Fishman-designed Acoustic Engine. The American Acoustasonic Telecaster embodies the spirit of purposeful innovation on which Fender was built. From acoustic shape-shifting to electric rhythm tones, this powerful guitar uses a revolutionary Fender and Fishman-designed Acoustic Engine to deliver new sonic expression from the studio to the stage.
