Comments about Fender FR50CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

I just received my Fender FR50CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar and to my surprise I am really both impressed and delighted with is guitar. For the money you can't really do that much better from where I stand. I has great workmanship, it is beautiful to look at, attention to detail is obvious, but the most importnat thing is the sound. Both acoustically and amplified I got a great sound with tons of sustain. The harmonics are amazing on this thing. I am a very happy customer. It can be tricky for me since I own a McPherson, Langejans, Chris and Ramirez acoustic guitars. You develope an ears where you go to a guitar shop and even $4k guitars sound blanned. However, this puppy is really sweet to the ear and if you are looking for a Resonator to experiment before you lay down the big bucks... there she is! Thanks Fender!

Comments about Fender FR50CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

You have to put on the bridge additions to raise the sting height... Then run around 14's on it.. I ONLY use this guitar for slide.. With usually open G tuning... I think Fender tries to market this as a Spanish style player and a slide.. Actions a little high out of the box for playing straight and a little too low for playing clean slide.. Once you decide to make the plunge and set it up for slide...I can only tell you acoustically it booms. Really nice "Great Speckled Bird", "Wabash Cannon Ball" and good for slow blues as well... But plug this guy in and mix the body pickup to the Fishman, just right, This is a nasty Delta Blues Honker..Love Mine...

Very disappointing

Comments about Fender FR50CE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Resonator Guitar:

From reviews of the non electric version, I thought this would be a possible dual usage guitar as a resonator and actual dobro. It most definately did not meet either goal. I found it to be extremely weak in sound and amplification as a resonator. The dobro usage, after using appropriate bridge addition, also did not have any where near positive sound quality. This would not be a favorable choice over either of the actual types. I love Fender products, have many, but this was the least impressive. I must admit, however, it is a visually beautiful guitar.
