Comments about Fender Sonoran S Acoustic Guitar:
This is a fine guitar for the money. Neck is fairly fast for an acoustic, with good setup, action, intonation straight from the factory. Acoustic tone is bright, yet sufficient in depth. The built-in tuner is a bonus, though I've worn down a few 9v batteries forgetting to turn the tuner off. The Fender's tone quality is not exactly a match for a Martin, but then again Martin's entry level guitar is substantially more expensive. I gave this guitar an "8" because it represents good value within its price range. I don't think it would be fair to compare it directly to price-is-no-object acoustics, but in that larger world of acoustics - including pricey ones - I'd rate it a "6": very serviceable, and certainly above average. Recommended.
