Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
3rd Fender acoustic I've owned and as happy with it as my Martin and Takamine. It feels great in my hands and is just a well rounded guitar. A lot of people think that Fender is best at building Electric guitars but I have found they also have some very good acoustics. I've had guys with high end Takamine & Taylor tell me how impressed they were that my 450.00 $ Fender acoustic sounded every bit as good. After 13 yrs that six string is still going strong. This new 12 string is very beautiful and plays and sounds very good. The tuner and electronics are great. I got a warm feeling when playing it and it sounds beautiful
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
All I can say is that it is a very good sounding guitar. Tone is great and the Fishman electronics are great. I'm looking forward to trying different kinds of strings to find out what all I can get out of it but it sounds just fine with the Fender strings on it. I don't think the website tells all about the electronics. Fishman electronics with built in tuner, volume, treble, mid, Bass and also a phase control with easy access battery with a low battery light. With the electronics and good soundman you will get wonderful sound from this guitar
How was the action out of the box?
Action out of the box was great. gave it a quick tune and was ready to roll. You can't go wrong with this guitar and the price is great !!
How did the stain or paint job look?
Finish was perfect and without flaws. Beautiful guitar, great lookin ! gold hardware with an abalone rosette and what looks to be a mother of pearl Fender emblem on the headstock. Fender did a great job making this guitar look great
How has it stood up over time?
Time will tell but if it stands up like my Fender DG 20 CE that is 13 yrs old now, which I'm sure it will, I will be playing this guitar for many years to come and have it the rest of my life .
