    Comments about Fender Classic Design Series CD-140SCE Mahogany Cutaway Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Really impressed with this guitar still...but since my last review,I discovered that a capo works great on this guitar as well.All the way up to the 5th fret without having to re-tune it at all!And it stays in tune.Shows how well engineered it is.The pickup and sound are great too.Really impressive guitar for the price.Don't pay a bunch of money for the name on the headstock when this one will do the job nicely.Fender acoustics are greatly underrated.

      Comments about Fender Classic Design Series CD-140SCE Mahogany Cutaway Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I was pleasantly surprised when I tuned this 12 string to standard pitch. The neck has stayed true and remains easy to play. I will drop it down a step for maintenance and capo it.
      The dreadnaught body has a full and loud sound, and good bottom end with a nice jangly upper end. The stock Fender strings complement the tone. The strings felt comfortable to fret with a nice spacing of the pairs. The tuning keys are decent but feel light to the touch. They hold tune well enough and add good balanceto the headstock. A nicer set can be modded later.
      The gloss is nice and not overbearing, giving a comfortable neck feel. The strings are set closely to each and after a couple of hours the feel becomes smooth and natural.
      There is a solid resonance from the combination of features. It sounds as good as a full size dreadnaught entry level by Martin, Guild or Taylor series that are made in China. The Presys by Fishman souds good and complements the sound nicely. The tuner and tone features are nice.
      I play good quality guitars, but a 12 string will see limited use. So, I did not want to spend a couple of Grand on a guitar to play sparingly. Most 12 strings I have played on over the years wore me out and were too much.
      I play a J 45, Les Paul Custom, American Strat andTele and the 12 string will see occasional speciality use on the classic rock tunes. Nothing beats a real 12 string sound that sounds good.

        Comments about Fender Classic Design Series CD-140SCE Mahogany Cutaway Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        Ready to play out of the box.Fender Acoustic guitars are solidly built and underrrated...why spend a bunch of dough on a 12 string guitar when you can buy this for much less and it will sound just as good?I have some songs that cry out for a 12 string,and this guitar fills that void.The electronics make this guitar sing.How they do it I don't know,but they throw in a hard case to boot.Great value,play-ability,and sound,what else do you need?You will not be disappointed!
