The Fender Sonoran SCE electro acoustic looks delicate due to its sweet finish, but don't let that fool you. The powerful dreadnought body comprised of a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides, quartersawn "X" scalloped bracing and considerate use of tonewoods makes this a powerful guitar with a unique voice.
Singing Solid Spruce Top
The solid spruce top radiates a brightness and clarity that allows the Fender Sonoran SCE to sing without becoming muddied by an overwhelming low-end rumble. As the top is reinforced with quartersawn "X" scalloped bracing, the solid spruce top reverberates without interference to produce a huge sound, whilst maintaining the structural integrity of the body.
The laminated mahogany back and sides delivers a rich and warm mid to low tones with plenty of depth and flavour. As the mahogany is laminated, it responds well to changes in temperature making it useful if you're on the move a lot and need a resilient instrument.
A subtle application of gloss urethane prevents superficial damage from affecting the tonewood, preserving the finish for much longer.
Solid Maple Neck with Vintage C Shape Profile
A solid maple neck is fitted to the body, shaped to distinctive vintage "C" shape profile. A 20 fret rosewood fingerboard is married to the neck, providing a luxurious feel and accommodating surface to play on. Dot fret inlays guide your way along the fingerboard.
Fitted with Fishman
The Sonoran SCE is fitted with the Fishman Isys III electronics system. Control couldn't be easier; simply plug directly into the jack input, adjust the sound using the on-board EQ and set the Volume level. Whatever environment you're playing in: pub, club, small venue, or large venue; the EQ and Volume controls allow you to craft your sound output accordingly. In addition it is also equipped with a built-in tuner, for on-the-fly tune-ups or doing away with an external tuner altogether, and there is a low-battery indicator that warns you when you need to change the battery.
The body is offered further protection from unwanted nicks and scrapes thanks to the 3-ply pearloid pickguard - which compliments the finish beautifully. Strings are held fast by the tastefully appointed vintage-style tuning machines with aged white buttons.
