          Comments about Fender CD 280S Dreadnought Rosewood Acoustic Guitar:

          My family has recently begun making regular weekend camping trips. I wanted an acoustic guitar to play around the fire. My only acoustic is a Martin that my wife bought for me back in 2003. It was too expensive and means too much to me for me to take it camping, so I began looking for an inexpensive guitar that wouldn't sound cheap.

          I hit a home run. This guitar sounds great. No, it doesn't sound as good as my Martin, but it's about 1/3 of the price and actually sounds better than the entry level Martins or Taylors.

          I wouldn't say that it was "bright" because I don't want to give the idea that it sounds "trebly." It's a very balanced instrument. For my tastes, it's a great balance between warm and bright.

          The top, sides, and back have a heavy gloss finish (not my taste). I was afraid that the tone would suffer, but it doesn't at all, and I *love* the satin finish on the neck! This guitar is easily the equal of most guitars twice its cost.

          Note, I probably wouldn't have bought this guitar if I had realized that it is made in China. I wanted to mention that to any of you who might care to know.

            I had a luthier check out.He said nothing was wrong with the guitar except being slightly low.I added Tusq brand bridge pins and now it sounds great!

                  Comments about Fender CD 280S Dreadnought Rosewood Acoustic Guitar:

                  I've had my Fender CD280S for about a year and I haven't really felt qualified to provide a review. However, I've now had a chance to play more guitars and recently bought an Alvarez AD-90 so I've got something to compare to.

                  This was my first guitar and I think I got really lucky. It has great sound, especially the bass notes. When capo'd up, it can be a bit tinny on the high e and b strings.

                  What I'm really impressed with is the set-up. It came out of the box perfect (I didn't realize how good it was at the time as I had little experience and no other reference - its way better than the Alvarez). Also impressive is its ability to maintain its playability despite dealing with a shift from 45% average RH in the summer to 20-25% in the winter (north-central Canada).
