A great acoustic-electric Fender dreadnought for a great price.

The Fender DG220SCE acoustic electric guitar has 20 frets, 25.3" scale, nato neck, with a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, and a compensated saddle. The finish is natural gloss polyurethane. The body starts with a Fender dreadnought style for full, balanced tone. It features X-bracing, dot position inlays, and a Gold silkscreened Fender logo.

The guitar plays with a very bright and full tone, with clear notes. Thanks to the on-board electronics in the Fishman Aero pickup and active preamp, this Fender acoustic guitar can perform live gigs with ease. The durability of the body woods, matched with Fender's craftsmanship, has made a rugged and durable guitar for a great price, and out of the box is ready to take to the stage.

              Comments about Fender DG200SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Rosewood Back and Sides:

              I believe that the guitars could be warehoused for some time. This dry's them out. Before you try to set it up, it needs to be humidified. When I got the guitar it was very dry. I am learning a great deal about how wood reacts to humidity or the lack of it.

                  The services was great.
                  The guitar set up will have to be completed by a tech.
                  The high E buzzes out at the 9th fret.

                  Comments about Fender DG200SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Rosewood Back and Sides:

                  I've read on a forum that this model is a Chinese-made (therefore more affordable) Dreadnought version of the GA-43SCE, a discontinued Grand Auditorium guitar that was far more expensive (over a grand) yet well received by critics (compared to Martins and Taylors). Still, it didn't sell very well. Rather than let the design die, it was reformed as the DG200SCE and produced for lower cost to the consumer.

                  Even if that account isn't entirely accurate (how can a grand auditorium and a dreadnought be considered "the same design"?), the resulting product here is an incredibly playable guitar with great tone for the money. I was about to take home a lower-end Martin when at the last minute I noticed this at Guitar Center and checked it out. My mind was blown. The solid spruce top feature was what drew my attention first. If you're new to buying mid-range or low-end acoustics, know that terms like "solid ____ top" are huge pluses. Most low-end guitars use pretty laminates even in the top (front), like putting pretty-looking wood wallpaper over generic wood. The result is a flat, "dead" tone due to the cheap wood. Spruce is a great tonewood for hard strumming, and has a rich, bright lively tone. The Fishman electronics are equally impressive. They do a good job of preserving the dynamic sound of the strings. Also impressive was how "gig-ready" this guitar is off the shelf. I didn't have to adjust anything. The action is low and steady up the entirety of the neck. If you have the chops, this acoustic is extremely shred-able, which is why its good this is a cutaway! Let's not forget that the satin-finished neck feels amazing.

                  The only thing I can say this guitar comes up short on is that when compared to even a low-end Martin (X Series), it doesn't have the rich bottem-end bass that the Martin has. Yet a Martin X Series costs more, and you don't get binding or lacquer finish (therefore its less durable), you get weaker electronics with less tonal control and no tuner, and the X Series definitely is not as playable up the neck right off the shelf (the action gets annoyingly high).

                  The bottom line is that when shopping for a low-end to mid-range guitar, if you try all other available options, you will find this is the best balance of tone, playability, and features. TRUST ME.

                        I bought my DG200SCE based on my trial demo at a Guitar Center Store. I played all brands in a price range from 300. up to 1600. and this guitar was as clean and crisp as even the higher price guitars. The action was a bit high at first but after I adjusted the bridge height the action it can be compared with the very best. I can play for hours without any fatigue issues. I am proud to say I am a much better player because I love to work with this fine instrument. The fit and finish is perfect, I cannot find a flaw at all.

                              I purchased a DG200SCE in December of 2008 after not having had a guitar for almost 20 years. I spent a great deal of time playing various guitars and not being able to afford a Martin Taylor or Gibson I tried a bunch of guitars around and even well above the price range of this guitar. I finally chose the DG200SCE based primarily on SOUND and neck feel. I even brought my wife along when I finally decided to purchase and played about 10 different guitars for her without saying what I was leaning towards and she also thought that the Fender sounded better than any of the others (even those that were substantially more expensive). So here it is in 2013 and I am still very happy with the Guitar. Great playability and tone. Tuning Stability is VERY good. If I am going to be critical in any way I would say that the bottom end does not quite have the depth available in higher end guitars like the Gibsons, Taylors or Martins. That said I would certainly make the same purchase again. Also, Build quality and finish are very good.

                              This is a really great guitar, it looks really good and sounds amazing pluged in or not. Have played many guitars, martins, taylors, gibsons, and none can even compare to this one. The price of this guitar is a steal, would have paid more than double for this guitar. Unbelievable guitar for an unbelievable price.......you wont regret buying it.

                              Comments about Fender DG200SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Rosewood Back and Sides:

                              I've been a Fender electric guitar fan for years, but I have never found a Fender acoustic that I loved the tone of. They always sounded dead and muffled. That, plus the construction usually left something to be desired. Well, I went looking for a lower priced acoustic/electric, and the salesman pointed me towards a couple of Fenders. I was doubtful, but tried them both. I was very surprised by the construction, tone, and playability of these guitars! The DG200SCE is a great guitar! Nothing from Washburn, Yamaha, or Ibanez even compared in the same price range. Very nice!
                              Satin finished neck, binding, great preamp/tuner, fantastic playability. Nice inlay work, and I really like the gold hardware.
                              For the money, this is a very solid guitar. Very stable tuning, even came with an extra bridge saddle and bridge pin. Just a nice added touch.
                              Great tone, great looks, even coated strings. Great deal on this guitar!

                              I just brought home a Fender DG200SCE and what a beauty. I played Martins and Washburns and Taylors and Ibanez but this one really caught my ear at guitar center in Reno, Nv. I have several guitars but this is my favorite, the tone is amazing, plugged and unplugged. I have been playing guitar for 40 years and this hands down is one of the finest sounding axes ever!! The price was unbelievable. If you play this axe you will know what I mean.Clean,crisp, strings have great action, close to frets, and just a beautiful guitar. I played about a dozen axes and knew this was my choice. This guitar could easily fetch 3 to 4 times the price. What an excellent value. Rob Roy
