Mahogany and spruce tonewoods

A solid Sitka spruce top gives this Fender Highway Series Dreadnought a bright, punchy sound balanced with mahogany back and sides for rich sustain. Together, these tonewoods deliver a timeless all-purpose sound while keeping this guitar incredibly lightweight and maneuverable. Moreover, floating X-bracing inside the sound chamber amps up the volume and balances sound to perfection — proof that Fender and the Highway Series are committed to acoustic excellence.

Feedback-fighting properties

The Highway Series body shape borrows cues from Fender’s Acoustasonic hybrid series with comfortable thinline chambering and a beveled armrest. Like the Acoustasonic, the Highway Series handles onstage like a dream and naturally suppresses pesky feedback! Given its feedback-squashing attributes, the Highway Series can conjure stage volumes far greater than any old-school acoustic-electric guitar. And the best part? The thinline body plays nicely with effects, too! Try adding a touch of chorus or reverb for a bigger, bolder, acoustic sound.

Active Fishman electronics

Much like acclaimed Fishman Fluence electric guitar pickups, the exciting new Fluence Acoustic pickup lets players enjoy world-class acoustic-electric tone without noise or hum. Fluence Acoustic systems are uniquely optimized for the different Fender Highway Series body shapes. This all-analog pickup offers top-mounted controls for quick onstage adjustments without missing a beat. Still, the Fluence system’s exciting innovation is arguably the sound of its patented pickup curvature. Conventional bar-shaped pickups register string movements in a straight, uniform line across all six strings. In contrast, the Fluence Acoustic curvature has individually optimized pickup points for each string, thereby eliminating the stiff, boxy presence of conventional soundhole pickups for a richer, more compelling sound.

Tone-tweaking options

In addition to volume controls, the Fluence Acoustic system’s contour knob lets players make punchy EQ adjustments with two core voices and blendable nuances to explore. Voice 1 offers a more “natural” acoustic guitar sound with fuller bass and is the go-to sound for singer/songwriters. Voice 2 reigns in bass with more high-end clarity and midrange muscle. This tighter voice gels well with drums, bass guitar, and more with a mix-cutting sound (it’s also great for soloing or getting the best sound out of pedals).
