Fender’s new FR-55 Hawaiian Resonator produces the uplifting sounds and evokes the lush trade winds atmosphere of the island paradise that is the 50th state. Perfect for slide or standard acoustic playing, it features a striking bell brass nickel-plated dreadnought body beautifully etched with scenes of South Seas splendor, with swaying palms, outrigger canoes and even a volcano caught in mid-eruption.
Other premium features include a continental Eastern European hand-spun cone, Fender “F” sound holes, mahogany neck with satin finish and gold Fender headstock logo, 19-fret rosewood fingerboard with 16” radius, ebony bridge with hard maple top, bell brass nickel-plated tailpiece and chrome hardware.
