For great amplified resonator tone, the FR-50 CE is the perfect choice. It’s the same great resonator as the FR-50, with the addition of a cutaway and dual-pickup system. Features a Telecaster® guitar neck pickup, Fishman® Resonator pickup coupled with a Fishman® power jack (lets you go stereo by sending each pickup to a different amp), two independent volume controls and a tone control.

Just bought this guitar and first impression is very nice. Pickups allow a nice mix of tones. It is very body heavy due to the resonator(expected). The bridge does not adjust at all. Just string it up and play it. No set up except maybe truss rod tweak, (comes with truss rod hex). Also comes with no case. It does fit in cases for my other acoustics, so that is fine for me, for the few occasions I may need to take it out of my house.
Absolutely changing the strings, as I do not like the stock ones. They are scrapey-horrible for slide, and too acousticky, gonna get some the same guage nickel electric strings to give more of a bluesy electric dobro touch. It feels like a regular acoustic with these strings.
Overall a nice purchase I got it for a great price!

A close friend of mine lent me his FR-50 and within a few days I knew I had to have one!! I have been playing guitar for over 35 years mostly acoustic but these resonator guitars have wonderful sound. I play every week at my church and I needed one that I can plug into the system.
I tried the tele pickup in it so far I am really impressed with it. This guitar is perfect for guys like me who play a standard acoustic guitar. You will not be disappointed. I shop for weeks before I buy a guitar and this one was worth the wait!!!
