Fender FM-52E Concert Tone Mandolin

As a performing mandolin player, you're familiar with the dilemma: It's not an easy instrument to mic for onstage use. Enter the Fender FM-52E, an "A"-style mandolin with a comfortable feel, convenient onboard electronics with volume and tone controls, and a price low enough for even casual players. An ideal choice for folk, Celtic, country and even rock, pop and jazz, the FM-52E is fantastic to have when you and your band need the beautifully chiming--and amplified--sound of a mandolin.

Spruce top

Spruce is the standard modern tonewood 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, from hard strumming to fast flatpicking to delicate fingerpicking.

"A"-style design

This is the classic teardrop-shaped mandolin body style with a simpler headstock design, a long-established classic for Irish, folk and even classical music.

Chrome Hardware

In addition to its other fine appointments, this instrument features the classic look of chrome hardware.

Features:

- "A"-style electric mandolin
- Special design single-coil pickup with volume and tone controls
- Spruce top with tone-bar bracing, dual "F" holes and Sunburst finish
- Nato neck with 21-fret fingerboard
- Height-adjustable compensated ebony bridge
- Chrome hardware, two-ply tortoiseshell pickguard

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
