Everything about the Acoustasonic Strat is a hybrid. The electric-style neck is bolted onto a slender body with a ported resonance chamber and an acoustic-style bridge, and strung from the factory with phosphor-bronze strings, including a wound third.
There’s no pickguard or whammy bar. The feel of its slightly finished neck and body is distinctly wooden, yet electric qualities come to the forefront in play. Strat cats will find the deep C-shaped neck profile wonderfully familiar, with fantastic playability.
It’s exactly like playing a perfectly set-up Strat with heavier strings. Unplugged, Fender’s Stringed Instrument Resonance System makes the Acoustasonic Strat far louder than its electric cousin, yet far quieter than even a travel-sized acoustic.
The top and body are very resonant, and the tone emanating from the soundport has an interesting speaker-like compression akin to a resonator cone, where each note pops out with definition. It’s quite practical when there’s no amp available, such as backstage in the dressing room or riding along in the van. But the real fun begins with amplification. It’s an amazingly versatile instrument with enough tonal settings to dial up your own unique acoustic / electric sound.
This Acoustasonic Strat was bought new by its one owner last year. It presents as new in every way – not a sign of player wear that we can see. Everything works as it should, and this guitar would definitely suit a new buyer.
Comes in its Fender gig bag in new condition.
