Full sound. Excellent overall.

By Pluck&StrumAllForOne

from Rancho Cucamonga, CA

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I went to Guitar Center and played this guitar. I found nothing to complain about. One feature that I found to be very helpful is that the neck is designed to prevent your hand from sticking when your hands get sweaty. I played this plugged and unplugged and it sounded fantastic sound both ways. Tuning was great, but then again I did only play it for about 20 minutes while sitting in the store. But I trust Fender.

Great guitar!

By Pete

from Wayzata, MN

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I walked into the store determined to spend my money on a Martin, but I picked up this guitar while waiting for a salesman and had a hard time putting it down. After comparing it against several more "high end" guitars I walked out with the Fender and couldn't be happier. I would recommend the CD140SCE to anyone!

Excellence, at a great price!

By iStrum4God

from tulsa

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar is absolutely fantastic! I bought this about a year ago and have been using it ever since. The pictures on this cant even come close to describing this guitars true beauty. it has a loud and warm tone. the stock strings sound fine but if you really want to get the most out of this beauty you need elixor strings. this is a great guitar for beginners to pros. Great price for what you are buying. Also one more thing to note, this guitar will literally stay in tuned for a week straight even capoing on and off! dont hesitate on the steal!

I Love My Acoustic!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By I want a Strat...

from Hornbeak, Tennessee

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I went out and bought this guitar in January this year. I decided to get serious about playing guitar, and I was looking for a Gibson or Epiphone. But when I picked this one up and started playing it, and it just felt right. Like, I got more joy out of playing the guitar with this one than the Gibsons, Takamines, Alvarez, and Ibanez. I love this guitar! I wouldn't trade it for the most expensive Taylor guitar in the world! It is my pride and joy! Buy it!!!!!!!!!

My First Guitar

By Josh Reed

from Cincinnati Ohio

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I just bought this guitar 3 days ago and it is a beauty. Plays really well. I was having trouble deciding between the Fender cd140sce and the Dean Performer E. I wanted something with a little bit of a deeper tone and the slightly bigger body of the Fender makes the difference. Also, after reading some reviews the electronics on the fender are very good. I am a beginner at guitar and this is the first guitar I have ever bought. I got mine in the all black and it looks & sounds amazing. I am very pleased with my purchase and I am excited to start learning. Thanks Fender and GC!

Can't Put It Down

By Lauren

from New York, NY

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I just purchased my guitar earlier today and I cannot put it down. The guitar feels and sounds great, and with the low price I have no regrets about walking in GC and purchasing it 20 minutes later. The built-in tuner is a really nice feature, and the mahogany backing produces nice sound. Overall an awesome guitar for someone who wants to start out with great value and quality by a brand you can trust.

Great guitar for the price

By Gman

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar because I needed an acoustic electric. It is the best qaulity guitar I have ever seen. I have banged it on accident so hard any other guitar I have heard of would have broke but this guitar didn't have even a scratch! This guitar sounds great unplugged but when plugged up it has a high tremble. You might want to take it in to a shop to get the action lowered. Besides thoughs minor problems, it is the best, strong, and reliable guitar for its price, at least that is what i think.

Must Give this 5 Stars!

By Ettienne

from Boston, MA

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is an incredible little guitar. It is beautiful to look at and I love the tones that come from it. This from someone who can barely play a few chords. Wrote 3 songs after I got this thing! :) A friend who can play much better than I can and owns a John Mayer Edition Martin... said that this inexpensive guitar feels and sounds like his martin. Nuff said. Have a great time strummin'.

Best in price range

By Fry Daddy

from Easton, PA

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Tried all the guitars in this price range- Epiphones, Ibanezes, Yamahas, Takamines. This one has the best balanced sound and is the loudest due to bracing and solid top. None of the guitars in this price range have a great bass sound but this was the best. I own two Taylors but needed a guitar I could keep out on a stand, and also use for travel. Adjusted truss rod to bring action down a bit, now good intonation up the fretboard. Plugged in, it is very midrangey-had to cut the mids on pre-amp, then it sounded good. Convienient battery access, on-board tuner is a plus. This guitar is gig-worthy if you can't afford a Taylor or Martin.

An Excellent Choice both in Price and Quality

By Stratosaurus

from El Paso, Texas

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The highest compliment I can pay any item is to buy it, and after evaluating about 15 different acoustic-electric guitars at the GC, I bought this model and remain very glad I did. The overall quality and sound exceed all guitars I evaluated, even those which are two to three times as expensive. One minor imperfection: the strings on mine were a bit too high above the fretboard. I simply removed the white, vertical bridge piece, milled about 1.5 mm off its bottom edge, reinstalled it, and the action is now absolutely perfect, with no fret buzz. A nice addition: Fender includes a truss rod adjusting wrench, extra bridge piece, and amp cable. If you are in the market for a great acoustic-electric guitar at a very reasonable price, I strongly suggest that you evaluate this model. I did....and I bought one.

Amazing Guitar

By Lauren

from MA

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I went to the GC to try out a few guitars,i was most happy with the CD140sce. i tried the fender sonoran, a takmine, and even a taylor. i played this for about 20 minutes and realized i had to have it. It sounds amazing plugged in and played acousticly, i plyed it both ways at the GC. the tone is great, the body is also very beautiful, and the price is outstanding. i may have to wait till sunday to get this guitar, but it`s defintely worth it.

Seriously fantastic guitar for the money

By Big J

from Amarillo, TX

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I just traded off my 8 month old Taylor 814 CE for this guitar and some other items. The neck is narrower and much easier to play than the Taylor was and has a good solid tone that to me was better than the Taylor and has much more projection unamplified also. I've owned several high end guitars and for the low price this guitar has got to be the bargain of the decade.

Back In Black!

By Big Jimi

from Lyme, CT

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've owned the Fender CD140SCE for 2 weeks now, and it's one sweet performing A/E!! I bought the black one, and I wasn't even looking for a guitar that day! If you're a guitar lover, you simply can't resist the ACOUSTIC ROOM whenever visiting Guitar Center, and the CD140SCE said "BUY ME" the second I spotted her! After 10 minutes of jamming, I was at the cash register! The guitar is beautiful, flawless, and for $289.00, an incredible value! The high-gloss black finish with white body/neck binding is extremely HOT, to say the least!! With a solid-spruce top, it's loud & powerful unplugged...plugged in it really shines, through my Fender G-Dec 30 amp or my Micro-Cube Mini Amp. Fender designs their guitars very well...front strap button on the body, on-board tuner, screwed-in back strap/cord button, D'Addorio EXP strings...lots of great features stock! This guitar sounds so good, the action is perfect, and it's easy to adjust with the extras included! I'd highly recommend this guitar to anyone, from beginner to expert! Thanks again, Fender & Guitar Center

WOW!

By paul

from fort worth, texas

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought the Fender CD-140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar on 9-14-10. The plan was simple....to trade 2 squire strats & a Fender sonoran I had for 1 really nice, yet inexpensive acoustic-electric. I thought to get an Ibanez, but it cost way less than the sonoran I had. In essence I would have been downgrading. So I asked the rep from GC what he had that would rival or be even better than my sonoran. He brings me out the Fender CD-140SCE Acoustic-Electric. It was a solid black colour, & I fell in love with it at first sound! On the acoustic front, this guitar has a very "full" bodied sound that is both deep & mellow. The sonoran, in my opinion, just doesn't quite have the fullness the 140SCE brings to the table. Albeit, both have a deep, mellow tone. Also, I had difficulty with the neck of the sonoran being too narrow for my hand which is rather large. Hence the need to wish to change. The Fender CD-140SCE Acoustic-Electric has a wider neck, but then it is afterall, patterned to be an acoustic guitar. The solid spruce wood top is what gives it a full bodied tone. As for the electric part of the guitar, it totally rocks. I ran it through a small studio amp with a small compliment of fx pedals. WOW! I used a phase shifter, chorus, & distortion. You would think I had the baddest strat on the planet!! And this guitar is light weight....lighter than the sonoran even. Do I think the total cost of this guitar is a fair one?? I think so.....but I had 3 guitars to trade off, so I got a great deal!! But really, if you like a guitar that much....sometimes price is not a factor. On a scale of 1 to 10 - Yeah....definitely a 10. Now to be not so biased about Fender....yes, they have their fair share of guitars that shouldn't even exist they are that bad (i.e. stratacoustic)... and they have more than just one! But if you want an acoustic-electric guitar that has kick to it, then the Fender CD-140SCE Acoustic-Electric is for you!!! But remember, this is just a very satisfied customer, whose review is predicated on my personal experience with this guitar. Your experience may vary. As for me...I plan to do more business with the fine staff of GC!! :)

Great little fun, bang around guitar!

By Kathy B.

from MIlwaukee, WI

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

My main instrument, a Koa wood Takamine stays at the church so I was looking for a fun, inexpensive guitar to take on retreats, play at home, or pretty much just throw in the car. I played six or seven different guitars at the store and decided that this one had the best sound for the money, had the electric pick-up if I wanted to play it plugged, and with the on-board tuner I don't have to rely on my ever aging ear to make sure I am in tune. If you are a seasoned play looking for an additional instrument, or a newbie...I would recommend this guitar, especially at this price!

excellent for price range

By alex

from hammond, in

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

i did some research before buying my first guitar and i consider myself pretty musically inclined and i went into the store several times before making my purchase and tried several different brands and models and in my opinion this has the best sound for what i was willing to spend...it seemed like at this price range all the fenders had a better sound, and the fishman electronics to boot (the best)

Great Acoustic

By Jesse

from Pittsburgh PA

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I went the guitar center and tried out a bunch of acoustics, this one felt right. The tone is warm for the most part and built in tuner is very helpful. IT sounds good plugged in and unplugged. Overall great acoustic guitar worth the money

Sheer brilliance

By Daniel

from Sunnyvale,CA

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar is brilliant.Its extremely light.This is really helpful if you have to do long gigs or praise and worship @ church.(It looks much heavier) .It has no buzzes or reverberations.No tingling sounds on high treble notes.The cut gives you extra room to play those high notes licks.(if your into acoustic lead).I loved it for every part of the music.Good for lead.It has a distinct sharp sound.the same time you could switch to a rhythm guitar with a soft mellow tone.Sounds excellent when plucked.I didnt expect that.It was similar or better than a taylor which i thought was the best for finger picking.Sounded well on the amp too.You have to be a little careful on the adjustment on the amp.improper adjustment could lead you to judge it incorrectly.I love this guitar.Extremely versatile beauty.I want to include some faults of this guitar..but honestly..i cant find one.

Amazing deal for the money

By Eric Sternbach

from NYC and Oregon

Comments about Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

As an old-school (pushing 50) player, I expected that any Chinese-made guitar would be the equivalent of a '70s "made in Japan" special. I couldn't have been more wrong. This guitar sounds amazing, even when strummed hard. It sounds pretty great through an amp too. The action is terrific, and the build and finish are impeccable. Also, the guitar is incredibly light in weight. I have no idea how they do it, but my hat's off to Fender.
