Designed with player-friendly features for unmatched ergonomic comfort, California Standard acoustics minimize limitations to unleash an ocean of inspiration, allowing creators to focus on what they do best - create.

Crafted from all-laminated sapele, the comfortable mid-sized concert body of the Monterey Standard has a deep, rich wood grain and produces a satisfyingly warm and balanced tone well-suited for a variety of playing styles. The easy-to-play nato neck is designed with a slim "C"-shaped profile with rounded fingerboard edges for optimal comfort, a short 24.75" scale length for low string tension, and a 6-in-line headstock for a distinctive look born from Fender's 1970s-era electric guitar DNA. The Monterey Standard also has a narrow string spacing at the bridge, ideal for players with small hands or those seeking reduced picking-hand fatigue. Other notable details include a silky satin urethane finish, vintage-style tuning machines for smooth, accurate tuning, and a GraphTech® NuBone® nut and saddle for detailed harmonic character. Rounding out the feature list is a Fender® preamp system that allows faithful reproduction of the guitar's natural sound when plugged into an amplifier or recording device, and includes a built-in tuner for convenient on-the-fly adjustment.

Bold, eye-catching and unique, California Series instruments make no compromises balancing effortless playability, superior sound, and standout style for those who aspire to play something different.

All-Sapele Construction

With a body crafted from all-laminated wood, this instrument strikes a perfect balance of durability, stability, and inspiring tone. Visually striking, sapele is a tonewood revered for its warm, nuanced tonality and natural sonic balance.

Short 24.75" Scale Length

A short scale length (the distance from the nut to the bridge) results in a low string tension, minimizing the effort required to fret each note for reduced hand fatigue during long playing sessions.

Fender Preamp System

With a compact footprint, intuitive volume and tone controls, and onboard tuner, the Fender® FE-A2 preamp is easy-to-use and performance-ready.

6-in-line Headstock

An unmistakable Fender electric guitar design element, the 6-in-line Stratocaster® headstock shape imparts undeniable rock-and-roll attitude into this acoustic-electric instrument.

Slim “C“-Shaped Neck Profile

The slim “C”-shaped neck profile is inspired by Fender electric guitars, offering superior hand comfort thanks to its consistently shallow depth and rounded fingerboard edges.

Narrowed String Spacing

Measuring 2“ in total width, the narrow string spacing at the bridge makes picking, fingerpicking and strumming comfortable for players at any stage.
