Went in to buy a set of strings and saw this 2018 Fender Redondo Special on the markdown rack. Thought it looked cool and gave it a try. 45 minutes later i bought it. Fender has knocked it out of the park with these. Solid spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, maple binding and rosette, bone nut and saddle and ebony bridge pins. The fishman preamp is barely noticeable on it. It truly has an electric style neck with a soft C shape and larger fret wire. A joy to play. Sounds incredible acoustic and plugged in. My mind is blown....this guitar sounds and plays better than it has any right to lol. Crafted in China....i would never have known. It was $899.99 cdn marked down to $599cdn due to a couple scuffs that i buffed out in a couple minutes.
