Is it the missing link between acoustic and electric?

Judge for yourself, looks very much like it is doing a pretty good job of it to me

I dig everything about this except the list price, which isn't all that bad -- just more than I care to spend. The concept has been around for a while, mostly with F hole hollow bodies, still can't wait for the T-type knockoffs to start flowing in.

I love it! But indeed, price is high for “normal” players.

For myself, a homeplayer, i wouldnt go higher than around 7/800€ for a guitar.

I'm willing to pay that much for a guitar, but I don't think I'm willing to pay that much for *that* guitar. I think its cool and I'm interested in it, but I doubt that it would be a "main" guitar for me, and it doesn't "light my fire" like some guitars do.

Perhaps it will be successful enough that Fender will offer some variations at lower price points. For me, it just needs to be a little less pricey to tempt me with what I see as a kind of quirky, niche instrument.

Of course, all that is without actually playing one. I might play one in a store and decide it could be a main guitar for me and is worth every penny. But I think that's unlikely.

I've seen this across various forums.

but

It's a gimmick. One of those 'throw it at the wall and see if it sticks' guitars. I don't expect it to spawn lower price versions. I don't expect it to sell in large numbers either. It will probably quietly disappear from the range next year.
