New From Fender Reso-Tele, Acoustics and more!

Fender guitars has always been known to make good acoustics at a nice price. I've purchased 3 myself over the years and have always been reasonably happy with them. They've had several releases this year on Custom Shop and regular production models. Here are some new Tele's and Acoustics that you will be able to purchase soon. First off is new signature acoustics for Ron Emory with the "Loyalty" slope-shoulder Dreanought models. One version features a spruce top, mahogany back and sides and mahogany for the neck. Vintage-style burst and butterscotch stain. Both versions feature quarterswan scalloped "X" bracing, herringbone body binding and rosette. Like just about every other acoustic in the world, it feature a Fishman preamp (Isys III) with built in tuner, on-off switch and three-band EQ (which leaves a bit to be desired). 
 

For those who want are looking for an appropriate instrument for Pete Seeger songs there is the Mando-Strat. 
 

Here is one to definitely try out at your local music store if you can find it, the RESO-TELE, which is a resonating version of a Telecaster. It features an under-saddle pickup on a maple body and 3-color sunburst finish. Yes it has an F-hole.
