Comments about Fender GC-140SCE Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

This is a beautiful guitar. The build quality is exceptional for a guitar at this price point. It plays very easily and is very comfortable. The only drawback for my and why I didn't rate this five stars, was because to me, it sounds somewhat weak and tinny....lacking low-end. I'm not at all impressed with the electronics. They work, but don't sound great. The tuner is nice though. I performed a much-needed setup shortly after receiving this guitar. It plays like butter now. Overall, it's a great go-to guitar for practicing, has a very nice feel and is very easy to play. If you're not expecting the full sound that a lot more expensive guitar could offer, you won't be disappointed.

    I bought this for my son. It's his second acoustic guitar, he wanted something he could plug into an amp. He really likes it. It plays well, seems to be solid construction. I would say this is a great guitar for the price!

      Comments about Fender GC-140SCE Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

      I bought this guitar to simply learn a couple of songs that i really wanted to play. I already knew how to play guitar and i wanted to get back into it. This guitar is really amazing! The picture online doesn't show the really nice glossy finish to it on the sides. The only thing about it was that sometimes the battery case won't make contact with the actual part that powers the guitar.However, once i actually got it after like 2 minutes, there has been no problems with it. Great guitar. I hope this review help. I suggest you play this and try it out before you buy it.

      If Only It Had a 1.75" Wide Nut

      By Rob Darby

      from Oakley, CA

      Comments about Fender GC-140SCE Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

      This IS an amazing little guitar. I played several different smaller-bodied guitars at a local GC, looking for one that sounded and felt right for fingerstyle playing, and the Fender Grand Concert 140SCE(which is the full designation for this model) was the one I had to buy. The solid spruce top and the smaller body design add up to very good clarity--especially for an instrument in this price range. I do wish they would have given it a 1.75" nut instead of the 1.69. It's a little narrow for fingerstyle, but having fairly skinny fingers, I have managed. The tone is better for fingerstyle than somewhat more expensive Alvarez and Breedlove guitars. The neck, while a bit narrow, has a thin back-to-front profile, which makes it more comfortable than the tree-trunks on some other models. You will likely have to adjust the action (or have a qualified tech do so), as it's not as player-ready as it could be upon purchase. Still, the only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the nut width. If you're okay with 1.69, you won't be unhappy with this. I noticed the price has come down since I purchased. Jump on it!

      I love this guitar!

      By JENNIFER BERNALES

      from Elmhurst, New York

      Comments about Fender GC-140SCE Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

      I'm still a novice but this is my second guitar. The first one that I bought was Takamine but I decided to sell it because I didn't like the way it feels when I play it. I bought this directly from Guitar Center. It was the very first guitar that I saw when I enter the door in the Acoustic section. When I tried to play it, I realized that this is the guitar that I was looking for. The neck is a bit narrow and the strings are closer to the neck, which makes it a bit easier and smoother to play compared to other guitars. I tried the other guitars at Guitar Center but I always come back to this one. It's good for beginners like me 'coz it takes awhile for my fingers too hurt compared to other guitars which takes only 5-10 mins. I can practice longer it this guitar. My friends love it too. They tried playing it and told me that they like the way it feels. It's lighter and it sounds good too.
