Mint Condition Fender Telecoustic Acoustic-Electric Guitar (Red)

Includes a Fender Gig Bag.

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.
