Fender Brown Derby Resonator

Fender introduces the new Brown Derby Resonator, combining traditional design with a Tele-shaped headstock.

Fender Brown Derby Resonator

This new guitar is part of the two new acoustic models that the company added to their resonator line, which now offers six models to choose from.

As the name implies, this particular model comes with a brown stain finish that gives the guitar a vintage appeal. Unlike traditional Resonators, this one retains the playability of regular acoustic guitars. This reduces the learning curve required to play the instrument and makes it ideal for guitarists that want to try Resonators, or want to add its sonic palette into their music.

While the sound of this instrument is truly distinct, the C-shaped mahogany neck wand rosewood fretboard with 16" radius is designed to be familiar and comfortable for guitarists of all levels. With its 25" scale length, 20 vintage style frets and 1.73" nutwidth, minimal if not zero adjustment to your fretting hand will be required to play this guitar properly - unless ofcourse you're learning to play the slide.

And speaking of slide, the maple-topped body comes with a special Eastern European "Continental" cone that is built using hand-spun aluminum, giving the guitar the Resonator sound that is perfect for slide, blues, country and other traditional music styles. The back and sides of the body are made from mahogany.

All the metal hardware are finished in nickel, including the resonator cone, and the vintage style tuners. Other features include the bone nut, aged white plastic buttons for the tuners and a maple biscuit bridge.

Adding to the classic appeal of the Fender Brown Derby Resonator is the aged white body binding with black-and-white purfling, and the black binding on the fretboard.

Finally, like the other models in this line, the Brown Derby Resonator comes with an affordable price tag of just under $350. This is quite affordable for a Fender branded full-size instrument, and it is currently available for preorder through online musical instruments retailers.
