A Classic Resonator That Plays Like a Guitar!

Fender's FR-55 Hawaiian Resonator evokes the spirit of the islands. Etched into the nickel finish is an island scene of palm trees, canoes and a volcano. You'll find this biscuit resonator as easy to play as a guitar. The nickel-plated metal dreadnought body sports a mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard. A continental Eastern European hand-spun cone with ebony bridge topped with hard maple provides authentic resonator tone. A pair of Fender "F" soundholes finish off the distinguished good looks of this unique instrument. Take an island vacation - with the Fender FR-55 Hawaiian Resonator.

Fender FR-55 Hawaiian Resonator at a Glance:
  • Add unique resonator tone to your sonic palette
  • Plays just like a guitar
  • A taste of the islands
Add unique resonator tone to your sonic palette

As a guitarist, you're constantly looking for unique tones to spice up your music, right? The Fender FR-55 Hawaiian Resonator is your opportunity to add the unique flavor only a resonator can provide. Layered above your acoustic (or even electric) guitars, a dash of resonator can be just what the (mix) doctor ordered.

Plays just like a guitar

Fender's FR-55 is amazingly playable. If anyone knows guitarists, Fender does. Leave it to them to build a resonator that plays just as easily as a standard acoustic guitar - but sounds like something else, entirely! Adding a resonator to a track is now as easy as arming your DAW and picking up your FR-55.

A taste of the islands

The Fender FR-55's Hawaiian motif of palm trees, canoes, and volcanoes will transport you to the islands as you play. Fender's been getting playful with their designs of late - a trend we at Sweetwater wholeheartedly endorse! It's great to see a company that long ago mastered the basics (of making fabulous instruments) have a little fun with their creations. Spread the joy!
