The Fender FA-125CE may seem familiar to those who remember the classic Fender F-Series models. Using choice laminated tonewoods that are crafted into a gorgeous dreadnought shape, this guitar is built to withstand all you can throw at it and sound beautifully all the while, making it a very special acoustic.
The dreadnought body shape with cutaway is well known for producing a powerful tone, which is richly textured and delivers a wide dynamic range. This has resulted in it becoming the weapon of choice for both singer-songwriters looking for an acoustic with a versatile timbre, and players in a group who can sit perfectly alongside other instruments whilst having the optional boost to cut through the mix.
The inclusion of laminates in the body means the FA-125CE travels very well, as they respond well to changes in humidity and temperature. If you're looking to benefit from the deep resounding mahogany and bright-sounding spruce tones, but desire the reassurance in knowing that the body will remain in pristine condition wherever you go, then this guitar is for you. The added layer of gloss urethane allows the woods to resonate fully and preserves the beautiful natural finish.
C-Shaped Mahogany Neck
The sturdy mahogany neck is shaped to the comfortable "C" shape profile, giving a substantial feel in the hand. Atop this is the delightful composite fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets.
To guarantee that the FA-125CE plays as good as it looks, Fender has included some high-quality appointments. A Graph Tech NuBone nut maintains string spacing perfectly. The composite vintage-style Fender "Viking" bridge with compensated Graph Tech NuBone saddle, creates a seamless connection between the strings and the body to maintain excellent sustain.
Fishman Pickup System
For when you want to amplify the FA-125CE with minimal fuss the low-profile Fishman preamp/pickup system is immediately on hand. Simply use a jack lead to connect to your desired acoustic amplifier or mixing desk and you will hear the natural tone of the Newporter with no sacrifice of sound whatsoever.
