Fender has announced a limited edition Acoustasonic Stratocaster, built with a selection of exotic tonewoods. This news follows the company’s recent announcement of the Road Worn series’ return, new Squier Mini models and brand new effects pedals.

The hybrid instrument is introduced in three variants, one featuring a cocobolo body with white limba neck; another featuring a ziricote body with black limba neck, and one with a koa body and korina neck.

This builds upon the design and features of the Acoustasonic Stratocaster that launched earlier this March, and the Acoustasonic Telecaster, which launched the series last year.

The American Acoustasonic Stratocaster includes Fender’s patent-pending Stringed Instrument Resonance System, along with a trio of pickups consisting of a Fishman Under-Saddle Transducer, Fishman Acoustasonic Enhancer and a Fender Acoustasonic Noiseless magnetic pickup.

Further increasing the instrument’s tonal versatility are the Fishman- and Fender-designed Acoustic Engine, which allows various body style and tone wood combinations to be emulated, as well as the Mod Knob, which can be employed to blend different voices together.

The limited-edition Acoustasonic Stratocaster also adopts a channel bound neck, in which the fingerboard is laid directly into the neck, in order to eliminate side seams for a comfortable fret-hand feel.

The Limited Edition American Acoustasonic Stratocaster will be available 1 October, priced at $3,299.
