Fender is proud to introduce the new limited-edition U.S.A. Select Classic Koa Auditorium Cutaway - a U.S.-made, finely crafted auditorium-style acoustic with a tropical touch that produces the tonal characteristics of a dreadnought in a model with a smaller cutaway body.
Ideal for flatpickers, the guitar’s top, back and sides are beautifully fashioned from solid “AA”-grade Hawaiian koa with a gloss lacquer finish for bright, responsive and dynamic tone. Other features include scalloped X bracing, aged Ivoroid neck and body binding, abalone rosette, mahogany neck with soft "V" shape and dual-action truss rod, 20-fret ebony fingerboard with bone nut and block inlays, ebony bridge with bone saddle, bone bridge pins with abalone dots, gold hardware and tuners, and Fishman® Matrix™ Infinity pickup and electronics. Limited-edition series of 150 instruments.

I'm a part time musician, but have been one long enough to really value high end/boutique instruments. I own a D-35, a D-42 KOA and a D-45 for reference.
The bottom line is that this guitar is incredible and I love it. The tone is warm and loud. The sound is crisp and beautiful. The action and feel of the neck are wonderful. The pickup choice is excellent and it sounds like a million bucks plugged in.
Thank you Fender for making such a great guitar.

......And I've Played Hundreds. Taylor, Breedlove, Gibson, Martin, Ovation, etc. The List Goes On and On. Being a staunch Fender Player- It never sat right with me to have to go to another brand to record or play a Live Gig that demanded Dead-On Tuning. No Offence- but even
the higher end Fender Acoustics of the past just wouldn't cut it. When I heard that this Limited Run beauty was going to be offered with all the features that I require in an acoustic- I got very exited. After careful investigation that included numerous phone calls and e-mails to various Dealers and Reps I ordered one and got #45 of 150.
Thanks Fender- I can finally say that I only play Fender Instruments
