Fender Launches the All-Mahogany American Acoustasonic

Fender expands the Acoustasonic series with the American Acoustasonic All-Mahogany models.


When Fender launched the American Acoustasonic Telecaster in 2019, the guitar entered a brand new market segment. The introduction of the Acoustasonic model eliminated pre-existing hurdles, unlocking a versatile playing experience with true Acoustic and Electric tones. Since then, Fender has introduced a Stratocaster and Jazzmaster model built with the Fender and Fishman-designed Acoustic Engine. Today, Fender is expanding that series with the American Acoustasonic All-Mahogany models handcrafted in Corona, California.

From acoustic shape-shifting to electric rhythm tones, these powerful guitars use a revolutionary Fender and Fishman-designed Acoustic Engine to deliver new sonic expressions from the studio to the stage. Handcrafted in Corona, California at the same factory that makes Fender’s iconic electric instruments, these guitars represent the next era in Fender craftsmanship and innovation – designed for fearless artists seeking an inspirational instrument with limitless new sounds and Fender feel.

American Acoustasonic Telecaster All-Mahogany ($1,999.99 USD)

The Acoustasonic Telecaster mixes future technology with organic feel and playability as a way to connect artists to their music. The fully hollow body features an integrated forearm contour and our patented Stringed Instrument Resonance System (SIRS) – designed to deliver a naturally loud voice with lively harmonics. A smooth-playing mahogany neck and open-pore satin finish make this cutting edge guitar comfortable and easy to play, while the Solid Mahogany top gives new tonal characteristics with warmer meds and smooth lows. On stage, the Acoustasonic Telecaster eliminates many of the challenges associated with playing an acoustic guitar live by cutting out feedback, making it easy to access the sounds you need without switching instruments. The Acoustasonic Telecaster is powered by the Fender and Fishman-designed Acoustic Engine – a proprietary blend of classic analog and future technologies that optimize the guitar’s natural sound - modifying the resonance to deliver a curated collection of voices. These acoustic and electric voices can be played solo or blended via the Mod Knob to create new sounds. They can also be used simultaneously, courtesy of the Fender Acoustasonic Noiseless magnetic pickup. Available in Natural or Bourbon Burst.
