European guitar players can now discover the new F-Series acoustic and electric-acoustic Dreadnought guitars.

The new Fender F-Series pays homage to the F models created in the 1970s, so you will find on this new edition the large headstock and the Viking-style rosewood bridge, which were used during this era. But Fender also wanted a more “natural” look and inlaid a maple logo on the headstock, maple and rosewood rosette, a maple “F” inlaid on the 12th fret as well as maple bindings on certain models.

The F-Series comprises 6 guitars, three acoustic dreadnoughts and three electric-acoustic dreadnought cutaway.
