    Comments about Fender CB-100CE Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar:

    The acoustic bass has been on my wish list since I first played the violin version. Given the variety of music, the acoustic was limited. This instrument will actually lead me to select the music based on what sounds best on this bass.

      Comments about Fender CB-100CE Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar:

      Here is what you need to know; it looks great, sounds good,and plays wells. It came setup properly with a beautiful satin finish. It's light and fun to play without lugging a heavy bass amp around and being tied to a chord. It's not loud so you may need to use the Fishman pickup when playing with other instruments, even acoustic guitars. The good thing is that the bass sounds the same through an amp. The acoustic bass is good for playing chords that typically don't sound good on an electric. I have been playing a Fender Jazz Bass prior and think the acoustic sounds similar but with some additional harmonics not apparent in an electric bass.

        Comments about Fender CB-100CE Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar:

        got this as a level 3, had an incredible bow to the neck, the tuner did not diplay the e or a, only one dent at the very top. I tried one in a store that had a whole row of acoustic basses, ranging from 149 to 900 usd, this one was the only one that had a good strong resonance and projection compared to all the rest.I was surprised. now back to the bow in the neck, I turned the rod a couple of turns and it moved just a bit, I called to return it but they said as soon as you try to adjust it, they wont take it back. no probs I guess,,, so I just cranked it and the neck went perfectly straight. You can even tune it down to a b and theres very little rattle, GREAT fret job, im impressed with this fret job, best ive seen coming from china. the neck is kinda chunky,, but it can be sanded down. Best bang for the buck, superior sound, records great, hardware is acceptable. you wont be dissapointed.

          Comments about Fender CB-100CE Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar:

          I haven't had this bass for long, but it is a well made bass and the strings are good quality. I haven't plugged it up, but it's moderately loud without an amp. I can't think of any downsides to purchasing this bass.

          Comments about Fender CB-100CE Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar:

          I've been playing bass for a number of years, enough to know from the get-go what will work and what will not after a few minutes noodling. I bought this bass primarily for acoustic, small-venue gigs. I haven't gigged with it yet, but it appears to be well built, good neck feel with no fret buzz, finish is consistant, satin in appearance, no sloppy glue joints or neck planing and the electronics work well, I plan to put some flats on it. Well pleased with the purchase.

            Comments about Fender CB-100CE Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar:

            I bought this bass because of the advertised nut width of 2.125". This is a bit of false advertising and it is actually only 1 11/16 like nearly all other acoustic basses. I would have never bought it had I known that. It turns out that it is a pretty nice bass for the price.

            Like nearly all acoustic basses it is too quite to play in most cases with other instruments unamplified.

            I Love Fender..but for a small woman, the neck is way too long for me to play comfortably and I had to send it back. I will always play Fenders cause they are made really well.
