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

    Incredible "bang for your buck". 40 years of acoustic & bass guitar experience, I wanted a new "mahogany" to taste the sound. Liked the idea of the solid top... bought the 140 over the 60 for that reason, trusting Fender to put out great product. I wasn't disappointed. This guitar has found a loving home and will not be leaving anytime soon!

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

    I was looking for a new acoustic/electric guitar that would make me smile and not break the bank. This has and will be one of my favorites to pick up and enjoy. It is made with extreme detail than some guitars 3 times the cost. The fit is perfect, and holds well with a strap. The electronics installed are better than average, and hooked to a Crate Flex Wave Amp w/pedal produces amazing sound for this solid mahogany guitar. Once received, I immediately changed the strings to a Ernie Ball Slinky Acoustic 11-52. This gives this Fender just what I wanted for great sound and playability.

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

        I asked my friend about what guitar to start out with and he suggested this one as it is acoustic and electric. This will be a new hobby for my wife. She has wanted one for years. I decided to purchase it and write a song. My fingers hurt in the beginning. Practice a lot and be patient. In the short month that I have owned it I have fallen in love with the guitar. I am considering buying another one for myself as this will be a gift for my wife on Christmas day.

              Great for practice, recording, or performance. Sounds like a much higher cost insrrument.
              Sold my Ovation Celebrity to purchase this. Great guitar but the warm deep sound like this has was not there. Purchased it from Musician's Friend too.
