This Cool Guitar Isn't Your Everyday Acoustic-electric!

Pick up your Fender Sonoran SCE and hit the beach! This laid-back California Series Fender acoustic-electric guitar is made to play, so go on and surf the fretboard until the sun comes up. The second you strum a chord, you'll be surprised by the Sonoran SCE's powerful voice — it's got a solid spruce top for full acoustic character you're going to love. But the Sonoran SCE also has style. Just take a look at that Fender Stratocaster headstock and that vintage-vibed pickguard — the Sonoran SCE is one cool guitar.

Fender Sonoran SCE 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Great tone and a comfortable body style that begs to be played
  • Built-in pickup system lets you plug it in onstage
  • Cool vibe with a chilled out look

Great tone and a comfortable body style that begs to be played
The sweet thing about the Sonoran SCE is that you get awesome acoustic tone, without spending a fortune. This is definitely a cool "first guitar" — and also a great upgrade for any seasoned acoustic player. In the name of tone, the Sonoran SCE 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, apart from hearing this one, you'll totally dig playing this one. It has a cutaway body style, so it's easy to play up and down the neck. And speaking of neck, it's got a vintage "C"-shaped neck, so the Sonoran SCE will fit perfectly into your palm.

Built-in pickup system lets you plug it in onstage
Go on and hit the stage with your Sonoran SCE. It's got Fender's FTE-3 active onboard preamp system, so you can plug right in and get to playing. On the FTE-3's controls, you can take charge of volume, bass, mid, and treble levels.

Cool vibe with a chilled out look
Yes, it's about tone, but it's also about vibe. And the Sonoran SCE definitely has vibe. Lots of it. Check out the headstock on this one — it's the same shape as Fender's iconic Stratocaster, so you've got a unique-looking acoustic guitar that's going to draw in eyes. Also cool, the rosette around the soundhole sports a checkerboard design, giving the Sonoran SCE a touch of flair. Last but not least, the pickguard isn't your standard tortoise-shell color... it's a vintage-inspired design for another cool, unique touch. Like we said, this is one cool guitar.

Excellent Guitar

This guitar produces superb sound and sound projection for the price; plugged in or not. My previous guitar that was purchased 20 years ago for more money than this Fender guitar is not nearly as good. The thin body style is also a plus for those not comfortable with using a bulkier guitar on a daily basis.

very happy

This one of the best playable guitars i have ever owned for me as I have short fingers and as soon as i picked it up I knew this was the Guitar for me the sound is awsome. I do not alow other musicans that i dont know to Play it If that makes me Selfish than SO BE IT. I have played other Guitars that also have a grate sound Like Gibson,Martin,and so on I am not taking away any thing from other guitars by no means but for me this is the best playable guitar because of the neck I have ever owned . A Good Bang For The BUCK

Fender Sonoran s e c

Music background: Hobbyist and player

very good for this price point

i got the lefthanded version of this guitar the other day & i love playing it because it's easy & sounds good. essentially, it's like playing an electric w/acoustic sound. the electronics are good & the tuner works. the only thing that's holding it down is that the frets are kinda sharp & could've stood to have been filed down a little before sending to market

Fender Sonoran SCE

Awesome guitar !!!!! I've played for over 50 years, been in many bands and the Fender Sonoran SCE, dollar for dollar is an excellent guitar. From the excellent tone, easy neck to play, great electronics, this guitar is hard to beat. I bought this guitar for my son, I have the same one and thoroughly enjoy it. If you want quality sound and an affordable price, this guitar is the one to buy.
