The set up and intonation, fit and finish are spot on, you can use it for practicing, performance and also for traveling. For just under three hundred dollars, there’s hardly any flaw with this axe.
- PROS: Great Value, Rich Sound, Cool looks
- CONS: Big size body, Gig bag not included
The T-Bucket 300 CE from Fender is a single-cutaway three-color Sunburst dreadnought beauty that comes with a laminated flame maple top and laminated mahogany back and sides. Priced a bit higher than the ones from Yamaha, this one is for the more discerning guitar player who also wants a better brand name.
Other features worth mentioning are the scalloped bracing, die-cast machine heads, all-solid rosewood bridge with compensated saddle and Fishman preamp with built-in tuner.
Just pick up the guitar, plug it in and you’re ready to rock the house!
Though not a jumbo “dreadnought” size body, this is big enough, so that is something to bear in mind for medium/small sized hands. Its not a big issue though; besides the body size ensures you get a very good sound and volume (even when unplugged).
Nice & Useful Electronics
The built-in electronics works flawlessly and is quite useful.
The Fishman preamp includes a volume control, bass, mid & treble controls. It also includes a built in tuner which is quite helpful, especially if you’re playing live and feel the need to re-tune strings between songs.
Just make sure to turn off the tuner when not in use so that the battery lasts longer!
