The two new downsized models in Fender's California acoustic guitar range, the Sonoran Mini and Redondo Mini, are available now.

Packing a “big punch into a smaller-sized acoustic guitar," these models – which were first revealed in July – are touted as ideal travel guitars, boasting 23.3" and 22.75" scale lengths, respectively.

Build-wise, the Redondo Mini sports a spruce top and mahogany back and sides. The Sonoran Mini is also available in this configuration, however it comes with a mahogany top, too, if preferred.

Features present on both models include a walnut fingerboard and bridge, NuBone nut and saddle, and a satin finish. Like all models in the company's California series, both the Sonoran Mini and Redondo Mini sport Fender's Strat-style six-in-line headstock.

Finishes available include All Mahogany and Natural for the Sonoran Mini and Sunburst and Natural for the Redondo Mini. Both guitars come with a gig bag as well.

Both the Sonoran Mini and Redondo Mini are available now for $199 apiece. For more information, head to Fender (opens in new tab).
