The All-Solid Sound of

Kingman™ ASCE

  • Highlights

    Fishman® preamp with built-in tuner
    Fishman® preamp with built-in tuner

    A Fishman® pickup/preamp system gives your acoustic instrument peerless amplified performance, with a variety of onboard controls and no compromise whatsoever on pure, rich and resonant acoustic tone. The built-in tuner is conveniently placed right where you can see it, helping to keep your intonation right on the money

    Scalloped Bracing
    Scalloped Bracing

    Scalloped bracing is thinner than more conventional bracing. That means that the bracing pattern inside the guitar uses less wood, which means that soundboard mass is reduced. This lets the top resonate more freely, resulting in better tone with more nuance and greater projection.

    Bone Nut and Saddle
    Bone Nut and Saddle

    String nuts and bridge saddles fashioned from bone contribute to brighter, clearer acoustic tone. Many players consider them more "organic" sounding, with tonal quality unmatched by string nuts and bridge saddles made using synthetic materials.

    Fender coated strings
    Fender coated strings

    Simply put, coated strings sound better and last longer. Your strings are where the rubber meets the road, so to speak, and they’re continually exposed to dirt, grime, the vagaries of climate and oxidation, and more. Fender coated strings resist all of this tone-deadening unpleasantness with marvelously smooth feel, improved resistance to corrosion and longer life.

    Maple Strat® neck with "C" profile
    Maple Strat® neck with "C" profile

    A Fender specialty. A maple Stratocaster neck with a "C" profile gives you the timeless and remarkably comfortable fretting-hand feel of one of the world’s greatest electric instruments on your acoustic guitar. For great acoustic sound and performance with great electric-guitar feel, there’s nothing better.

    Solid Top
    Solid Top

    An acoustic guitar with a solid top literally resonates with a more individual tonal character, more "organic" consistency and a more "true" voice.
