Fender has released a slew of new acoustics, extending its successful California range with nine new "Traditional" models.

Designed to “embody the relaxed feeling of Southern California", the range takes in the dreadnought-sized Redondo Classic, Special and Player, single-cut Newporter Classic, Special and Player and short-scale Malibu Classic, Special and Player.

New features for Fender's California universe include solid mahogany build on the mid-range Player models - the only trio to be offered in a range of finishes - plus a six-in-line tilt-back headstock for increased sustain, as well as solid mahogany construction on the Special models.

The California Traditional Classics are listed at $799.99/£649/€749, the all-mahogany Special models for $729.99/£609/€699 and the Player guitars for $429.99/£299/€349.
