Up for bid is this rare Fender Santa Rosa Acoustic/Electric guitar. These guitars were from Fender’s California series and were made for a short time from 1989-1990. Although wearing a “California” name these guitars were manufactured in Korea. This guitar is the predecesor to the Stratocoustic guitars which, in my opinion, were not made half as good as the Santa Rosa. Not sure of the body of the guitar (basswood?) but it sounds like an acoustic and has the feel of an electric. It weighs about 7 pounds.The neck is nice and small like a Fender Strat neck. The body is string thru but has extra sustain with pegs holding the strings through the bridge. The guitar has a neck thru body. It also has a volume and tone slider conveniently located at the top of the guitar looking down. It also has a dedicated 1/4 input, not flimsy like many acoustic electrics. Runs on a 9 volt which is easy to get to via unscrewing the back plate. Plugged in or played acoustically the guitar sounds great. Please ask any and all questions before you bid. Guitar will be shipped with a Fender padded gig as well.
