Fender Limited Edition California Palomino Acoustic Electric – Antigua White

$ 899.99

In the early 1960s, Southern California was a hotbed of creativity, and Leo Fender was inspired to create a new line of acoustic instruments that captured the innovative spirit of the decade. Collaborating with renowned luthier Roger Rossmeisl, Leo introduced several unique acoustic models that became iconic for their distinctive headstock shapes and easy-playing necks. The Fender Limited Edition California Palomino pays tribute to those mid-century guitars, and it’s perfect for musicians seeking a killer acoustic guitar with a gnarly retro vibe.

Featuring an auditorium body with an innovative Performance X bracing, the Fender California Palomino projects an articulate, powerful sound with every strum. Its solid Sitka spruce top and solid ovangkol body provide plenty of clarity and sustain, while its Fishman Presys VT Plus preamp system ensures a studio-grade amplified tone. This system consists of soundhole-mounted controls, an undersaddle piezo pickup, and an internal body transducer, guaranteeing a faithful reproduction of the guitar’s woody, dynamic voice.

The Fender California Palomino has an okoume neck with a modern “V” profile for maximum playing comfort. A tilt-back 6-in-line headstock with a matching headcap adds a distinctive touch, echoing Fender’s electric guitar designs. Additional appointments include a bound ovangkol fingerboard with pearloid block inlays, vintage-style tuners, and a bone nut and saddle.

The Fender California Palomino offers guitarists the perfect blend of vintage style, top-notch tone, and impeccable playability. If you’ve been searching for a remarkable acoustic guitar with an old-school soul, you have to get your hands on the California Palomino.
