What We Think
New for 2018, the FA125CE offers some pro features at a price accessible to everyone! A stunning laminate Spruce top, with a basswood body this guitar offers a full and surprising range of tonalities! The Nato neck is easy to play and feels comfortable, and combined with the cutaway design allows you to play all over the neck, with no limits! A feature that has no impact on the tone but I still think is a snazzy choice, is the larger headstock design which adds a truly stylish look to the guitar. The Fishman Preamp with built in tuner offers more control over your tone and the tuner even has a bypass allowing you to tune up in relative silence. Another fantastic budget guitar from Fender!
