Over the years, the good ol\' Tele\'s iconic outline has appeared in numerous incarnations, but in this Telecoustic guise it\'s far removed from Leo Fender\'s original solidbody \'plank\'.

This electro-acoustic vision appeared, along with the Stratacoustic, back in 2009; for 2014, Fender has expanded the Chinese-made \'coustic concept.

Our review sample is a bit of an oddity. It follows the 2009 spec with a standard acoustic pin bridge - the 2014 version should have the inverted Fender \'Viking\' bridge - and a white line around the oval soundhole, as opposed to the checkerboard pattern on Fender\'s website.

It does have the current-spec Fishman Isys III preamp mounted, oddly, on the lower bass-side bout, with volume, bass, mid and treble controls to tweak the Sonicore under-saddle pickup, plus an output-muting tuner.

While the electric-like maple neck could have come from numerous solidbody Teles, the body is different. The back and sides are made from moulded fibreglass, with a deeper-than-standard-Tele depth of 65mm (2.56 inches) at the rim.

It has an unusual matt black with gloss black speckled finish, while the top is more conventional: laminated spruce with solid spruce X-bracing. The top edge is cleanly bound with a white plastic.

The Telecoustic is more compact than an OM or dreadnought and light at 2.6kg. The guitar is supplied with an acoustic-like setup and 0.012-0.052 gauge strings.Unplugged, it\'s more midrange-y acoustic archtop than modern acoustic, but if you enjoy playing jazz, blues or slide, you might find a friend here. Plugged in, you could get through an open-mic gig, but it\'s far from the most expansive electro sound.While not an essential electro-acoustic, the Fender Telecoustic is fun, compact and stage-ready.

It has a bolt-on neck - and it could be set up with lighter electric strings to be a fine player with archtop-like tonality. I will ship this Fender Telecoustic anywhere in the continental USA.
