Fender FM63SE F Style Mandolin



As Fender’s top-of-the-line electric mandolin, the FM-63SE offers everything you could want in this beautiful traditional instrument. While it’s best known as a familiar sound in folk and country music, mandolin is also gaining popularity as a fresh new sound for alternative bands, singer-songwriters and pop/rock players. The FM-63SE is an excellent choice for all of the above, with its solid spruce top, flame maple sides and carved solid maple back. While providing wonderful acoustic performance, it also has high-quality onboard electronics when it’s time to plug in. Going beyond the features, though, this is a beautiful instrument designed to produce the traditional sounds you want, along with the fantastic smooth playability for which Fender is famous.


  • Electric “F”-style mandolin
  • Piezo pickup with volume and tone controls
  • Solid spruce top with tone-bar bracing and Sunburst finish
  • Carved solid maple back, laminated flame maple sides
  • Maple neck with 24-fret ebony fingerboard
  • Rosewood bridge with compensated saddle
  • Gold hardware, mother-of-pearl rosette and four-ply body binding

An acoustic guitar with a solid top literally resonates with a more individual tonal character. Because it’s a single piece of wood uninterrupted by seams, laminates and the like, it vibrates with a more “organic” consistency and a more “true” voice.

This mandolin isn’t just elegantly crafted from the front. The back is every bit as beautiful, carved with superior workmanship and bearing the classically refined look of a flame maple wood figure.

Gold hardware imparts an elegant gilded look to an acoustic instrument; a pleasingly high-end appearance that isn’t overdone or ostentatious, but rather just the right touch of refinement.
