Fender Acoustics Introduces New California Series, Artist Design Models
Fender acoustics is proud to welcome one ukulele and two new acoustic guitars to its collection, the Jimmy Stafford Nohea Ukulele, Sonoran SCE Wildwood IV, and Kingman Jumbo SCE Limited Edition.

The Jimmy Stafford Signature Nohea ukulele is based on the Train guitarist's customized ukulele Nohea model, as heard on 2009 hit "Hey, Soul Sister." It's a real stunner, too, with a gorgeous all-koa body, abalone acrylic rosette and binding, and a rich Transparent Black gloss finish.

Other features include scalloped fan bracing, 17" scale, "U"-shaped mahogany neck with aged white binding and Telecaster headstock, 19-fret rosewood fingerboard with abalone acrylic dot inlays, rosewood bridge and Fishman Sonitone soundhole pickup system with volume and tone controls. Includes a gig bag.

Reminiscent of the colorfully distinctive Fender Wildwood acoustics of the 1960s, the Sonoran SCE Wildwood IV dreadnought was created with exotic woods that make for a truly special instrument with remarkable look, sound and feel.

Premium features include a solid spruce top for superior balanced tone, matched with an exotic back and sides in either exotic dao or purpleheart. Dao wood imparts a gentle tropical look with balanced tone, while purpleheart wood has an elegantly striking look and extended dynamic range. Other features include a maple neck with "C"-shaped profile and Stratocaster headstock, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with bone nut, rosewood-base Fender "Viking" bridge with compensated bone saddle and aged white pins, three-ply gold pickguard, and Fishman Presys pickup/preamp system with volume control, three-band EQ, mid-sweep control, low-battery light and built-in tuner.

Large in size and volume with a vibe that screams Fender, the Kingman Jumbo SCE Limited Edition is a jumbo cutaway acoustic that can cut through any mix with its loud booming bass thanks to its solid spruce and laminated mahogany back and sides. It offers a natural body finish, maple Strat neck with "C"-shaped profile, quartersawn scalloped "X" bracing, Fishman Presys preamp with built-in tuner, dual action truss rod for increased stability, all-solid rosewood bridge plate, and bone nut and saddle.
