I got a Fender CD280S Dreadnought acoustic guitar in October of last year(2009) from MF. It sounded ok at first but not particularily praiseworthy. However, that has changed. I have been playing it pretty heavily since-average 2 hours daily. It really sounds awesome now. No one can fault the sound of This guitar. It is great playing lead and just fine strumming. One thing I should mention is that my guitar doesn"t care for Martin strings. The D'Addarrio EXP 26 do just fine after a few hours of break-in playing, hold their tune good and last and last. These are what came with the guitar initially. I highly recommend this guitar to any one looking for a guitar under the price range of $600. $500.

Great Quility & value ,we tried many others in this price range,this is the best all around guitar.
I am an active performing musician. While my first loves are keyboard and voice, I picked up guitar 6 years ago. I was looking to get a relatively cheap guitar which would give me some great sound and this fulfilled that desire. The Tone is not overly bright, I would call it very crisp. Its bass also maintains the resonance that is heard within the treble and mids. The neck is comfortable, and the action(when I got it) was near perfect. I don't LOVE the look of the tortoise pick guard, but I don't mind. The 280S stays in tune well both sitting in its case, and during performance. The only thing I don't think this guitar would be GREAT for would be maybe blues, unless you have a great amp or pedal to mollify the crisp brighter tone. But I think in a fix, this would work just fine.All in all, I loved the guitar. For the price, I don't think you'll find an equal.
