Designed with player-friendly features in mind, the Fender Monterey Standard is an affordable electro-acoustic guitar that is a great addition to the California Series.

Crafted from all-laminated sapele, the Monterey Standard has a comfortable mid-sized concert body, allowing the guitar to deliver a well balanced tone. 

Married to the body is a slim C shaped neck with a short 24.75" scale, aiding playability by reducing string tension. Topping the neck is a walnut fingerboard that has round edges for comfort and is set with 20 frets and dot inlays. The narrow string spacing at the bridge is ideal for players with smaller hands and great for reducing picking hand fatigue. A 6-in-line headstock also features for a distinctive look born from Fenders DNA,

The Monterey Standard hosts a Fender preamp system that allows faithful reproduction of the guitars natural sound when plugged into an amplifier or recording device, and includes controls for Volume and Tone alongside a built-in tuner for convenient on-the-fly adjustment.

Other notable details include vintage-style tuning machines for smooth, accurate tuning, and a GraphTech NuBone nut and saddle for detailed harmonic character.
