Guitarists will soon be able to cart around a much lighter model of Fender’s Acoustasonic amps as the manufacturer has unveiled two new additions to the range.
The new amps, one at 100-watt and another at 150-watt, are still part of the Acoustasonic range but are more powerful, are louder, and easier to carry around than other models in the range.
According to Fender, the amps “allow for a pristine and natural-sounding reproduction of electric-acoustic guitar” and are perfect for acoustic guitarists who need a versatile and flexible amp.
There are some additional features to the new amps that you can’t get on the rest of the range. They both have a new Voicing control so that the guitar simulates the tonality of the “parlor, dreadnought and jumbo acoustics”, which “[expands] the sonic horizon of the instrument”.
This feature can be turned off, although it also allows electric guitar players to control the amp to Blackface, tweed and British settings, so players don’t have to have a second amp for their electric guitar.
Other features include instrument and microphone channels with independent effects controls, as well as a new feedback elimination control, String Dynamics control, stereo effects loop and a USB connector for digital users.
Both models also have other effects such as reverb, delay and Vibratone.
Fans of Fender guitars can now buy a new Telecaster guitar specially named after Blur guitarist and Fender fanatic Graham Coxon.
The instrument has an ash body, tortoiseshell pickguard, vintage-style single-coil Telecaster bridge pickup and Coxon’s signature appears on the back of the headstock.
A self-declared Telecaster “maniac”, Coxon once gushed that you can do anything with the model.
“You can go for this kind of ‘British’ sound, or it can be this beautiful, clean country sound. You can really do anything on a Tele,” he said.
