When we invited noted hot-rod artist Vince Ray to come up with yet another fabulous limited edition Fender acoustic, he blew our minds by turning in his most elaborately outlandish model yet. This over-the-top rock-and-roll-mayhem-hot-rod-horror-show-pinup-girl machine is called the Vince Ray Voodoo-Bucket 300CE, and you better believe it puts the dread in dreadnought.
You get skulls and skeletons, motorcycles, black cats and serpents, demons and witches, disembodied hands beating bongos from hell, fortunes told and spells cast, stars, flames, headstones and more. In short, you get the mind of Vince Ray himself embodied in a 500-instrument run of guitars that look they jumped straight out of the previews from some drive-in B-movie nightmare.
The Vince Ray Voodoo-Bucket 300CE also happens to be a great-sounding, well-crafted instrument, with features including a spruce top with quartersawn scalloped “X” bracing, mahogany back and sides, body binding, bound mahogany neck with Graphtech® Nubone™ nut, rosewood fingerboard with new 12th-fret “F” logo inlay design, rosewood bridge with Graphtech® Nubone™ compensated saddle, strap-pin and end-pin jacks, and Fishman® Isys III pickup/active preamp system with built-in chromatic tuner, on/off switch, three-band EQ and volume control. A feast for the eyes and the ears.

This guitar is amazing, from the graphics to the tone. Being my first electric/acoustic I don't regret it. I'll sit out in the street playing and everyone comes and listens. I suggest you get one while you can.
When I first saw this guitar I was astounded with all the colors and detailed images that were displayed on the front and back of the guitar! But then when I started playing it the sound shocked me it was so clear and pure that I thought it was one of the greatest sounding guitars I have ever played! It comes with many awesome features! All I can say is GET IT NOW!

Looks a bit like a nightmare, but it caught my eye - then my ear - it sounds more like a dream. The tone is full and rich unplugged, magnified, varied and always as sweet as you could want in any e.q. adjustment plugged. Presuming all the CE-300's sound this good I'd recommend trying one - you'll probably end up buying one. Sorry if the Rock & Roll Voodoo passed you by, (groan if you want to) she's put her spell on me.
