Scottsdale, AZ (January 25, 2014) -- Fender Acoustics is proud to introduce its 2014 winter collection featuring a fresh lineup of artist signature models, folk music instruments, electro-acoustic models with USB connectivity, and more.

ARTIST DESIGN SERIES

The Wayne Kramer Dreadnought is a distinctively classy Fender acoustic bearing the personal design touches of the celebrated MC5 founder and punk godfather Wayne Kramer, with an elegant Vintage Sunburst finish on its spruce top, dark and richly stained mahogany sides and back, and fingerboard and headstock inlay work by acclaimed artist/illustrator Shepard Fairey of Obey fame. Other features include aged white neck and body binding and specially designed rosette, checkered back strip, quartersawn scalloped “X” bracing, mahogany neck with “soft V” profile and large ‘70s headstock, 20-fret Indian rosewood fingerboard with 11.81” radius, three-ply black pickguard, Fender “Viking”-style rosewood bridge, open-gear tuners with pearloid buttons, Fishman Isys III pickup/preamp system with built-in tuner and Kramer’s signature on the truss rod cover.

Renowned skateboarder Tony Alva is no stranger to empty pools or to making music with fellow Orange County, Calif., musicians in punk band G. F. P., so we invited him to design an acoustic model with us. The resulting Tony Alva White Lotus Sonoran SCE dreadnought cutaway model is as truly distinctive as the man’s skating style. The two-tone look consists of a White Pearl gloss finish on a solid spruce top, elegantly complemented by a Shoreline Gold finish on its mahogany back and sides. Alva didn’t stop there, however–he also added dual three-ply black pickguards, an “Alva” lotus graphic at the 12th fret, and a Fishman Isys III pickup system with active onboard preamp and tuner.

CALIFORNIA SERIES

Fender’s Sonoran SCE guitar is decked out for even more sun-and-fun acoustic action, upgraded with a three-ply pearloid pickguard, bone nut, vintage-style Fender “Viking” rosewood bridge with bone saddle, and new Surf Green and Shell Pink custom-color gloss finishes with matching Stratocaster®headstocks. Other premium features include a “tight” dreadnought body shape with a convenient cutaway, solid spruce top with quartersawn scalloped X bracing, mahogany back and sides, stylish checkerboard rosette and pearloid body binding, maple neck with “C”-shaped profile and dual-action truss rod, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with 11.81” radius, vintage-style tuners with aged white buttons, and Fishman Isys III pickup system with active onboard preamp and tuner.

Big in size, volume and vibe, the Kingman Jumbo SCE cutaway acoustic really cuts through the mix. Its sweet-sounding solid-spruce top produces loud, booming bass and nicely even tone, with a laminated mahogany back and sides that contribute pleasingly mellow warmth, all with an elegantly striking Three-Color Sunburst body and neck finish. The maple Stratocaster guitar neck has a comfortable “C”-shaped profile and imparts a classic look evoking Fender’s great sun-and-fun acoustics of the 1960s. Other features include quartersawn scalloped “X” bracing, aged white neck and body binding and specially designed rosette, mahogany neck with “C”-shaped profile and large Stratocaster headstock, 20-fret Indian rosewood fingerboard with 11.81” radius and pearloid block inlays, three-ply gold pickguard, Fender “Viking”-style rosewood bridge with aged pins, vintage-style all-metal tuners, and Fishman Presys pickup system with active onboard preamp, tuner, volume and tone controls, and low-battery indicator.
