6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar with Spruce Top; Mahogany Back, Sides, and Neck; Walnut Fingerboard; and Fishman Electronics – Belmont Blue
Harkening back to their colourful acoustics of the 1960s, Fender’s Redondo Player acoustic-electric guitar delivers rich, big-bodied tone, smooth playability, and eye-popping visuals that include a painted gloss finish, a matching 6-in-line headstock, a gold pickguard, and crème binding. The Redondo Player features mahogany back and sides and a solid Sitka spruce top. Under the hood of this slope-shouldered American classic is Fender’s proprietary top bracing for minimal mass and maximum resonance. It sports a Graph Tech NuBone nut and saddle for optimized sustain and a Fishman preamp system that faithfully delivers the guitar’s natural sound. Wrap your hand around the fast slim-taper C-profile mahogany neck; let your fingers dance on the laurel walnut fretboard. Effortless — a hallmark of Fender acoustics since the ’60s.
This laid-back California Series Fender acoustic-electric guitar is effortless to play, so go on and surf the fingerboard. The second you strum a chord, you’ll be delighted by the Redondo Player’s powerful voice — it has a solid Sitka spruce top for the full acoustic character you’re going to love. But the Redondo Player also has style. Just take a look at that eye-catching finish and matching Fender Strat headstock — the Redondo Player exudes attitude. Take the stage with this beauty, and your fans will go nuts!
Great tone in a guitar that begs to be played
Another sweet thing about the Redondo Player is that you get a killer acoustic tone without spending a fortune. This is definitely an excellent “first guitar” — and also a great choice for any seasoned acoustic player. In the name of tone, the Redondo Player has a solid spruce top. It’s a very popular acoustic guitar tonewood because it gives you a round and powerful voice. This is the kind of guitar you’ll want to bring into the coffee shop and hit the next open mic. Of course, the playability is pure Fender all the way. It has a cutaway body style, so it’s easy to play up and down the neck. And speaking of the neck, it has a vintage “C”-shaped carve, so the Redondo Player will fit perfectly into your hand.
Built-in pickup system delivers natural tone onstage
Hit the stage with your Redondo Player. It has a Fishman preamp system onboard, so you can plug right in and get to play, with full control over your volume and tone. Fishman is a leader in acoustic amplification, and their electronics have been favourites of Musiekwereld guitarists for years. Plugged in onstage or in the studio, the Redondo Player delivers the guitar’s expressive natural voice through an amp, PA system, or into the console.
