All Mahogany with a solid top. The solid top is what attracted me to this guitar - in a few years it should improve in sound. It has a darker look with black binding & a nice rosette. The finish on the body is nice with few flaws. Gloss top looks good, again very nice with the exception of the grain not matching well - 1/2 of the top has a darker different grain... I think they could have matched it up better. Given the price tag I accepted this plus the store I stopped into only had 1 in stock! The neck is a satin finish, feels great playing it. What matters to me is the play-ability and sound - this is a backup/2nd guitar to my Martin. I was surprised how well it plays - great action, really good sound. Good contrast to my spruce topped Martin. I picked up a couple other $300 guitars in the sound room and this thing just sounded better. I've played it a couple days with only minor tuning - so it has been pretty good so far. If you want something that is easy to play and gives you a smooth sound this is the guitar for you.

Great guitar but.....

Love this guitar. Second one I've owned. Unfortunately, living in Colorado, the necks do not hold up well. First one made it two years. This one, only one week. Read complete review

Amazing, but beware of quality issues

By Eric

Comments about Fender CD-140S All Mahogany Acoustic Guitar:

THE GOOD: 1. Beautiful. The most beautiful guitar you'll find under $200 2. Sound. An amazing, loud, bright, and crystal clear sound--almost glass-like 3. Playability. The action was decent straight out of the box 4. Construction. No major flaws on the one I picked out, aside from a tiny gouge in the headstock finish, but see below. THE BAD: 1. A tiny gouge on the headstock; a couple tiny specs sealed into the lacquer throughout 2. I WENT THROUGH TWO OF THESE GUITARS IN THE STORE BEFORE I FOUND ONE WITH A BRIDGE THAT WASNT LIFTING OFF THE TOP. INSPECT CAREFULLY!! 3. One of the guitars I rejected also had a split brace on the underside of the top--not cracked, but split right in two. THE VERDICT: I liked this guitar well enough to buy it anyway--the sound and appearance are simply that good. However, I went to the register with my confidence in Fender shaken, so I sprung for the $28 two-year Pro Coverage, and I would recommend that for anyone else considering this guitar. Customer service was first-rate, however, and the they even threw in a few goodies for the hassle of finding an unblemished guitar. I'm cautiously happy overall. We'll see how she holds up.

Extraordinary for the price

Comments about Fender CD-140S All Mahogany Acoustic Guitar:

Ive been playing for only a few months now, but I picked it up quickly. ive always been musically inclined, starting with the drums and now moving to guitar. until recently i have been playing my roommates guitar, so i finally decided its time to get my own. i have many guitarist friends, and have had the opportunity to dick around on a lot of nice rigs. i spent a lot of time looking before i came to this guitar. dollar for dollar its by far the best deal ive found. It sounds like a guitar twice its price. It is warm, clear, and powerful. Playing side by side this outperformed most of what i put it up against only second to some fairly pricey instruments. The real winner here is the look, though. This is one of the most aesthetically pleasing guitars ive laid eyes on. you wont find a better guitar under 400. go to yiour local GC and try it out. bet you walk out with it.

      Comments about Fender CD-140S All Mahogany Acoustic Guitar:

      Acoustics can be very tricky and like all guitars, highly personal I've played some nice looking, relatively expensive acoustics that left me flat...no pizazz, no life but i can tell you, even though this is an inexpensive guitar...I Love It! The feel is smooth, the finish and workmanship (at least on mine) is stellar, i can find zero imperfections but the sound, The Sound, to my ears is the real treat. Crystal clear, bell like ringing tone that sustains beautifully. You simply cannot go wrong for the price and even price aside, this is a really sweet guitar!

          Beautiful guitar that has great tone, easy on the fingers. I looked at guitars for a couple of weeks clear up in the $500 range and this one stood out well above the others. Highly recommend.

            I got this one to practice on and play around a campfire with friends. It has a warm rich tone and a very nice feel and the finish is stunning. Will possibly be purchasing another for my wife to learn to play. This is also a great guitar to learn on that will stay relevant throughout your musical growth.

            I just started playing and I'm really glad I took the time to do some research before buying. This is a great beginner guitar. It's got a good sound (to my untrained ear). It's easy and enjoyable to play and it looks nice too. I think it's worth spending a bit more money to get something nice when starting to learn. It makes it more fun to play and so I find it more enjoyable to practice. You can really tell you're doing it right when the notes ring out clearly. Worth it!
