California Series Special Guitars

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.

All-Solid Design
All-Solid Design

With all-solid back, sides and top, California Series Special acoustics are built to project with the player's personality in mind. Solid mahogany back and sides coalesce with a solid Sitka spruce top for tone that's lifelike, powerful and balanced.

Fender- and Fishman-Designed Preamp System
Fender- and Fishman-Designed Preamp System

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
