My friend owns this guitar. I have played it a few times though and was impressed with how good it sounded with new strings. This guitar is pretty loud and articulate. The action is a little high, I think that it could be fixed though. It lacks the depth and clarity of a more expensive guitar and the tuners are kinda cheap, but the tone is good for the price range.
When it arrived, everything was in perfect order, except the fingerboard. From fret #5 to 11 there were very noticable scratches and someone from the factory actually spread some wood putty filler in an attempt to hide the defects. The guitar sounds good, and so I am not going to return it due to the hassles involved. This is the risk of buying on-line I guess. The odd part is that the rest of the guitar is great. But somewhere in the production line process this guitar's neck was damaged and probably never should have been sold unless noted as a "blem". Also note, this guitar was "made in China".
I bought mine in person, and I took the time to try out several guitars. The one I bought was incredibly resonant and articulate, and sounded much more balanced and lively than any other I tried. At this price for a solid-top, this guitar is a steal. If you get a good one you'll never regret it.
The guitar sounds great, and looks perfect with the exception of the fingerboard. On the guitar I received, there were scratches between fret #5 through #11. While these scratches are not that bad and don't affect the sound quality, it's a shame that this otherwise perfect guitar has these unfortunate defects. Would I buy another CD140-S? In a second. For the price, its a good deal albeit even with the small scratches.
