The most affordable Fender guitar on the market, the ESC-80 three-quarter-size classical guitar is available exclusively at Austin Bazaar, a Fender-authorized dealer. An ideal guitar for beginners, the ESC-80 is designed with the intention of stimulating interest in musicianship and arousing passion for the art of guitar playing. Classical guitars are ideal for beginners because they have nylon strings, which makes them easy to play, and because their smooth tone is less noisy than a steel-string acoustic guitar. It's also worthwhile to note that, in spite of their name, classical guitars aren't specifically oriented toward classical repertoire. You can play the same music on a classical guitar -- be it pop/rock or jazz -- that you can on an acoustic guitar. The ESC-80 boasts the expert craftsmanship, ease of playability, and exceptional sound quality synonymous with the Fender brand name. The color of natural wood with a glossy finish, the ESC-80 has a rosewood fretboard and bridge, a laminated spruce top, and a laminated agathis body. It's built with 18 frets, a scale length of 24 inches, and durable chrome three-in-line open gear tuners with white pearl acrylic buttons. Prestrung with D'Addario Pro Arte nylon strings (.028-.043), it even comes with a Fender gig bag.
