    Comments about Fender Classic Design Series CD-140SCE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This was my first ever acoustic guitar purchased and so far I'm in love with everything it has to offer! It sounds great!! You certainly get a lot of bang for your buck with this one, especially with the additional features (pickup, built in tuner, etc) and hard case. Would strongly recommend this guitar!

    Owned it for 3 years

    About Me Experienced

    Comments about Fender Classic Design Series CD-140SCE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I went to GC to get a nice guitar, prepared to spend twice the money. I picked this thing up and I thought it sounded as good as Taylors and Martins, and it was what I was looking for. Cutaway, check. Full size, solid spruce top, electronics, check check check. Sounded GREAT unplugged.
    So I bought it, and enjoyed it for 3 years or so. I got ready to do a bone saddle and nut, and finally got around to checking the neck radius. I was very surprised to find that it was 18-20", instead of the spec'd 12" radius. This explains why I always had trouble fretting clear barre chords on this thing! Also the pickup started going out, high e string was very quiet. Bridge was glass-flat on the bottom so that wasn't it. I ended up selling it because of these things and replaced it with a Yamaha FGX800 C that I actually like better for $100 less. BUT lots of things can change in 3 years, maybe they've tightened up their quality control. And now it comes with a hard case, which wasn't part of the deal when I bought it. The mahogany back and sides are beautiful. The electronics are meh (Yamaha's are better). I didn't like the fat output jack/strap lug that doesn't want to hold a strap. Maybe they've changed that.

    Thank you Fender

    Comments about Fender Classic Design Series CD-140SCE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have not played guitar for over 20 years. I spent 2 hours in the Guitar Center store in Overland Park, Kansas looking for the right guitar for me. I found it. I went back to the same store and bought a Fender Mustang amplifier to enhance the sound of this amazing instrument. Wow was I blown away. I was not prepared for the technology advancement that happened. Again thank you Fender. SEMPER FI.

    I played this guitar the other day. I loved it! I have been playing for several years now and I know what a good sounding guitar sounds like. Has a great sound and is easy to play. I compared this model against other brands in its price range and this is the one I like the best.

    Great buy for me, the Fender dreadnought guitar sounds very full and I can't wait to purchase an acoustic guitar amplifier to further test out the sound performance. I bought the sunburst color.
