Unique Fender Body Shape
Unique Fender Body Shape

This guitar's unique body shape is a Fender exclusive, giving it a vintage-inspired look with a modern twist.

Solid Spruce Top
Solid Spruce Top

Spruce is the standard modern tone wood for fashioning the tops of acoustic guitars and other acoustic instruments—few woods can beat its strength, brightness and dynamic range, and it responds well to any acoustic playing style.

Fishman Preamp and Tuner

Complete with tuner, frequency (bass, middle and treble) and phase controls, this collaboration in preamp design is specially voiced for each California Series body shape.

6-in-line Matching Painted Headstock
6-in-line Matching Painted Headstock

The matching painted 6-in-line headstock on this guitar is immediately recognizable and exudes classic Fender vibe. It also provides considerable strength and resistance to “whiplash” that can severely damage most traditional acoustics.

Slim-Taper "C"-Shaped Mahogany Neck

Walnut Fingerboard and Bridge
