Your Fender T-Bucket 300CE Flame Maple acoustic-electric guitar is dressed to the nines with its figured maple top, illustrious holographic T-Bucket pinstriped rosette, and ivory body and neck binding. And it sounds great, too! The maple top with laminated mahogany back and sides provides ample resonance and a full-bodied sound, while Fender's super-playable mahogany neck delivers sweet sustain. Fishman Isys III System electronics capture and forge your playing into an articulate signal, and a rosewood bridge with a Graphtech Nubone compensated saddle keeps your strings secure and in tune for longer periods as you play. The reviews are in: with the T-Bucket 300CE, Fender has created a killer acoustic-electric for the price!

The Dreadnought Look and Sound

The dreadnought shape is probably one of the most recognized instrument shapes in the world. Its large size and broad shoulders tend to stir up a big sound with heaps of resonance and sustain. It does a wonderful job of responding to the dynamics of your strumming and picking. All of these facets result in a natural and dynamic tone that's a pleasure to hear, and it's this classic shape and sound that Fender has dressed up in gorgeous tonewoods for the T-Bucket 300CE acoustic-electric.

Maple for Snap, Mahogany for Depth

Your Fender T-Bucket 300CE features a maple topped body with laminated mahogany back and sides. As a guitar tonewood, maple will color your strings with a rounded brightness and a decent helping of read more snap. Mahogany is a common tonewood for both acoustic and electric guitars because it adds loads of body and sustain. Bodies that are only mahogany tend to be pretty dark-sounding, so it's a nice added feature to mix in a little maple. Together, these classic tonewoods deliver plenty of bite and body.

Smooth and Comfortable Mahogany Neck

Delivering serious Fender playability, the mahogany neck on this acoustic-electric guitar welcomes your hand with its sturdy yet comfortable C shape. A smooth rosewood fingerboard features 20 frets with a close action, and a Vince Ray inlaid pearloid pinstriping motif on the 12th fret and headstock adds some visual flair to the mix.

Fishman Isys III System Electronics

Taking in the full-bodied sound of this acoustic-electric is Fishman's Isys III System electronics and an active onboard preamp. Your output will maintain a well-balanced articulation, and volume, bass, middle, and treble controls, and an onboard tuner, will all keep your game in tune and sounding great.
