    Default Fender accoustic

    Honestly I have never played a Fender accoustic. Have any of you played them? Now I may just have to research some reviews. I heard some good stuff about some little startup called Martin or something like that. I guess those are pretty good for accoustic guitars.

    I have a cheap Fender acoustic for playing at acoustic jam nights, it's OK for the money I paid. I also have a very old Fender acoustic 12 string, which is a very nice sounded beast. So overall a happy customer, but I suspect they are not going to rival Martin or Taylor acoustics....

    I bought my daughter an entry level Fender CD60 last year. It sounds good and was nicely set-up out of the box. Can't fault it for the money.

    I played my first Fender acoustic in the mid-60's when the Kingman was first introduced. At the time I thought they were cool because they had a strat-like headstock. But it's always seemed that there were many better acoustics than a Fender. Now that they own Guild you'd think they'd decide to really step up that line. Seeing how far they are willing to extend their "brand" I'd guess that one day they will just do it and try to compete head to head with Taylor and others.

    Most of their acoustics are priced under $500 and "imported" probably from Asia, I'd guess.

    I see they do make a MIA Kingman "Select" acoustic now for $2,450: http://www.fender.com/acoustics/drea...elect-kingman/

    I love Fender but I'm not sure I like that headstock on an accoustic. just my opinion but the performance and playability would be the determining factors.

    I've played a few of them over the years, but never fell in love enough with one to buy it. I do like the good ol' Fender headstock on there, though!

    I have a Fender super jumbo acoustic with maple sides and back. Regular 3 and 3 tuners... none of that "strat style" headstock. That just looks wrong on an acoustic.
    Got it around 15 years ago.
    I chose carefully and made sure everything was right..It has aged nicely ...excellent tone.
    It really "rings" and has a great "voice".
    A good guitar cannot be built for the price of a poor one, but who regrets the extra cost for a good guitar?"

    Mike - good to see you back! I'm with you and Doug. That headstock on a dreadnought creeps me out almost as much as clowns.
