I purchased my Fender CD140CSE from Guitar Center in Boise 3 days ago. I spent a lot of time test driving every acoustic/electric they had, including other Fenders. I was looking not only for a good plugged-in sound, but a decent straight acoustic tone for the money. In almost every case the acoustic tone and volume were "blah," including other Fenders. When I strummed this Fender, though, it was "Ahhh!" For a second I thought I'd picked up a much higher cost American guitar. I think Fender has it right on this one! Neck shape and feel is excellent, frets are finished to perfection (no rough edges), overall fit and finish is flawless. Somewhat of a close second was the Epiphone AJ200SCE, but the acoustic tone still wasn't quite as robust, and for some reason they failed to build it with a compensated bridge saddle, which is uncalled for these days. I've played the heck out of this Fender for the last two nights, and couldn't be happier. Getting a solid spruce top, Fishman electronics, great build for the price is astounding! Time will tell of course if this guitar holds up structurally, but from all indications it's built to last.

After playing my Martin D-28 since 1975 and having the head stock break, I needed another guitar. I bought this Fender from GC because it was what I could afford at the time. I have owned this particular guitar for about six years. This is a decent guitar, keeping in mind you get what you pay for when it comes to guitar construction and materials. If you are starting out or your budget is limited and you want an acoustic that can plug in, the 140SCE is a reasonable choice. Out of the box the action was high, so have it set up properly. The sustain is on the weak side, the tone can get muddy in hard strumming and be careful with the preamp because the plastic clip that holds the battery housing, breaks easily. I play a very broad range of music and styles from finger and flat picking, blues, jazz to rock and even with the things I mentioned, the guitar is very playable for the price.

    Pretty new at playing so didn't want to spend a ton of money. However, this guitar sounds great. Paid more for one I previously bought and feel this has much better sound. Only been a couple weeks but keeps its tune great! Would say it's pretty good.

        Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I have had my CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar just over a year now and play it 2 or 3 times a week. I have no complaints. I have played guitars that cost 5 times the price of this guitar and not sound as nice. I love everything about it. Another thing about it is that the more you play it and the older it gets the better it will sound. Keep on picking!

        Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I had my eye on this guitar for a few weeks on the website. I really loved how it looked, and i was really curious on how all the ratings seem to be 5 star worthy. So, i went to guitar center and as soon as i picked this baby up, i just played like I was at home. The neck, the strings, the body, the light brown and rosewood are a piece of art...I knew that I just had to have it. It sounds 5-stars, like one that ranges in the thousands. It's just beautiful!! I've had it for two weeks so far, and every day it's like the sound just gets better and better. Definitely recommend!

        Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I purchased this guitar at my local GC last year. First off, let me say that every guitar needs some adjustments. For me, I replaced the saddle, pins and strings. Excellent build on this guitar. No problems whatsoever. If, no, when you buy this guitar, you will never look back. Even if you just try it at the store, (Not online), you'll see what we're all talking about. Enjoy

        Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I have played acoustic for years but have mostly played Fender electrics recently. I was on the lookout for an acoustic-electric to play at gigs. My Conn F27 acoustic is bigger than I want to tote around. I was out of town and stopped in a music store just for fun. They had the Yamaha and Ibanez acoustic-electrics and I was familiar with those. Then I saw this Fender. I didn't even know Fender made this model. I sat down and played it and I was flat out amazed. For $300 the sound and playability are outstanding, clearly better than any of the models in that price range. I had to come back the next day and buy it. It is really sharp looking, much nicer than the picture. The neck is great and the pickup sounds really good. I played my first gig with it and it is everything I hoped for and more. The other musicians said it sounds really nice. If you are in the market for an acoustic-electric then you must try this model. Even if you have to take a chance and get it through the mail without playing it. It is that good.

        Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I was HIGHLY impressed with this Fender guitar. My grandparents surprised me with it and I loved it. I just put Elixir Custom light gauge .011 polyweb strings, and it sounds like a Taylor when you close your eyes. I love the pick guard, too. I HIGHLY recommend it.
