OOH, I LOVE THIS!
It's been available for over a year now.
Errr. No it wasn't, the TELECASTER has been available for over a year, the Strat has just now been introduced.
I yearn for neither
They look fun. I could see how they would be handy.
I'm more of a Strat guy myself, but prefer the telecaster in this model. Not that I'd shell out the money for either. But the telecaster looks a whole lot better if you ask me.
It's cool, but I really don't see how it would be a viable option sound wise as compared to a full size acoustic/electric...
"Too expensive." "Ugly."
Yep, I’m on TDPRI.
Heh. The feature set is identical to the Acoustasonic Tele, and it's the same price. NDA was lifted this morning.
Plays like an electric, doesn't feed back like an accoustic...I would love one but the price point is WAY too high for me....
Another pseudo-"acoustic" guitar. I doubt if I'll get my hands on one, but as with the Tele, I'll bet that I would like the performance and tone way more than that of most acoustic-electrics, virtually all of which come off, for me, as obnoxious unless some sonic genius is running the EQ. I would rather have an instrument like this that is genuinely purpose-built to be what it is, not an attempt to turn a genuine acoustic into something it's not and cannot be. My objections are the use of digital printing (the mashup of wood and synthetic/manufactured parts is jarring) and the price. Obviously, I'm just an individual, but to me this is an example of unrealized potential. I think it could have been great, but it just looks cheap and half-a$$ed to me. Where's the relic version -- you know, the one that looks like it's been played for 40 years even though it's factory-built in 2020?
The way this guitar is made (according to the Andertons video), is that it is a solid strat-shaped body that is routed out to create the cavity and accept the cap insert. What 3D printing are you referring to?
I have a friend who gigs with an acoustasonic tele. Pretty versatile and fits his needs well.
I have no idea what making it into a strat shape does besides making it less appealing (to me, anyway).
As far as Fender expanding a product line goes - that tone master technology squeezed into a princeton with switchable 68 CPR and 65 PRRI circuit modeling - that's an expansion that makes perfect sense to me.
Well I think that looks like my current favourite Stratocaster! Still don’t expect I’ll be buying one tho...
Still waiting for a NAMM announcement from Fender that actually excites me *shrug*
I'm looking forward to buying none of them.
Fender's red-headed stepchild.
I'm waiting for the Jaguarasonic myself...
Quick question: what would you think of this -- a Tele Bajo Sexto?
