Fender has just released a revolutionary take on the Telecaster. Named the Acoustasonic Telecaster, the newly developed guitar mixes aspects of both an electric and acoustic guitar, giving the player access to a wide range of tones without switching instruments.

“Our objective was to develop an acoustic guitar for contemporary artists,” said Andy Mooney, Fender CEO. “The end result of our three-year R&D exploration met all these criteria and exceeded our most optimistic expectations with the launch of the American Acoustasonic Series.”

The made-in-California Acoustasonic guitar features a hollow version of the iconic telecaster body, matched with Fender’s patent-pending Stringed Instrument Resonance System (SIRS), a Fishman-designed acoustic engine, Fender Acoustasonic noiseless magnetic pickups, a mahogany Telecaster neck, and ebony fingerboard.

Starting at $2,000 USD, the Acoustasonic Telecaster is available in natural wood, black, grey, Surf-Green and Sunburst. Look for the hybrid guitar to hit Fender dealers early next week. In the meantime, watch the videos below to hear the guitar in action.
