Play Electric. Play Acoustic. Play Both, on One Awesome Tele!What if we told you that you can switch between classic Telecaster electric tones and superb plugged-in acoustic sound... without changing guitars? We're telling you now. Fender's Acoustasonic Tele is just the ticket for the best of both worlds, and you're gonna totally love it. You get all the things that make a Telecaster shine, from the single-coil magnetic pickup tones to the super-comfy maple neck to the instantly recognizable body design. But, this double-duty Tele also includes a cool piezo pickup and Fishman's awesome Aura technology!
What's really cool about the Acoustasonic Tele is how you can switch between electric and acoustic tones... and even blend the two, for sparklingly great sonics. Here's another thing you'll love: you can play at full-bore stage volume, with a loud band, and still make your acoustic guitar tones heard above the din - with zero feedback. AND with an ultra-comfortable, easy-to-play instrument. That's huge!
Springsteen plays one. So does Tom Petty. And Andy Summers from the Police. Want to talk twang? Look no further than the Teles strapped to Merle Haggard or the legendary James Burton. Keith Richards brought dozens of rock's most memorable licks to life on a Tele, and Joe Strummer used his Telecaster to blend punk's snarl with smart songcraft. Don't forget Roy Buchanan and Albert Collins; their Teles helped to define electric blues. And, who can forget all those amazing R&B records Steve Cropper put his Telecaster magic on? We're just scratching the surface here, folks... you simply can't go wrong when you strap on a Tele!
