WNAMM13: Fender Acoustics Winter Collection
Vince Ray Voodoo-Bucket 300CE

Fender acoustics has introduced an array of new instruments in its 2013 winter collection. They say that each is designed to inspire players of all levels, budgets and tastes. The diverse lineup includes artist signature models, hot-rodded acoustics, an acoustic bass, and more. Here's the details from Fender

ARTIST SIGNATURE MODELS

Longtime T.S.O.L. guitarist Ron Emory joined forces with Fender to infuse a lovely foursome of Fender acoustic guitars with his years of SoCal-punk cred and expertise: the new Ron Emory "Loyalty" Parlor and Ron Emory "Loyalty" Slope-Shoulder Dreadnought models.

One with a classic parlor body and the other with a slope-shoulder dreadnought body, the Ron Emory "Loyalty" Parlor and Ron Emory "Loyalty" Slope-Shoulder Dreadnought guitars are available in two versions–one with a spruce top, mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck and a vintage-style sunburst finish reminiscent of the 1930s; the other with an all-ash body, maple neck and butterscotch-stain finish resembling Emory's '52 Telecaster®.

Both versions feature quartersawn scalloped "X"-bracing, elegant herringbone body binding and rosette, soft "V" neck profile and aged neck binding, rosewood fingerboard with diamond inlays and 12th-fret "Loyalty" logo, 19 large vintage-style frets (20 in slope-shoulder dreadnought model), 1970s-style Fender headstock, three-ply pickguard, vintage-style rosewood "Viking" bridge with Graphtech® Nubone™ compensated saddle, and open-gear tuners. The Slope-Shoulder Dreadnought models also offer open-gear tuners, Fishman® Isys III pickup/active preamp system with built-in chromatic tuner, on/off switch, three-band EQ and volume control.

FOLK MUSIC INSTRUMENTS

Making an exciting comeback is Fender's classic electric mandolin, the Mando-Strat. This highly distinctive and charmingly diminutive instrument evokes the Fender electric four-string mandolins of the 1950s and '60s, with an updated and improved design for modern players. Main features include a solid alder body, "C"-shaped maple neck with 24-fret rosewood fingerboard, and specially designed pickup with volume and tone controls.

The all-new Reso-Tele is exactly what the name suggests, a resonator version of a Telecaster. This unusual design, combined with the Telecaster neck pickup, under-saddle pickup and electronics, makes for a one-of-a-kind playing experience with an appealingly traditional vibe. Distinctive features include a maple Telecaster body with a 3-Color Sunburst finish, stylized Fender "F" sound hole and hand-spun cone crafted in Eastern Europe for rich resonator tone.

The Hot Rod Design Series brings supercharged and upgraded features to the popular T-Bucket™ 100CE, T-Bucket 200CE, T-Bucket 300CE, T-Bucket 400CE, T-Bucket Bass E, and Vince-Ray Voodoo-Bucket 300CE models.
