It is no surprise that the CD-140SCE electro acoustic is one of the most popular guitars that Fender produce, as it plays host to an exceptional array of features that are normally reserved for much more expensive models.
The powerful dreadnought-shaped body is constructed completely from mahogany with a solid mahogany top and laminated mahogany back and sides. This is a beautiful tonewood that delivers a thick low to lower mid-range. The laminated back and sides are capable of dealing with temperature changes well, making the CD-140SCE very resilient and ideal for those who require an instrument that travels well.
Solid Mahogany Neck
Coupled with the solid mahogany neck and the gorgeous 20 fret rosewood fingerboard, the guitar produces a thick mid-range tone with plenty of punch, perfect for those who're looking for a guitar with more than a mere modicum of warmth.
Gig-Ready with the Fishman Presys Preamp System
For times when you want to gig or get a bit more volume from the CD-140SCE, it is fitted with the excellent Fishman Presys preamp system. The Fishman system perfectly represents the natural sound of the acoustic, but has a cleverly designed active preamp that perfectly amplifies the sound with adding any noise or colouration to the signal. The control layout is very simple to use but offers powerful tone control if you want to affect any changes. The options available to you are: Volume, Bass, Mid, Treble, Body (Mid-Sweep). A useful built-in tuner keeps you on the right track and a handy battery indicator light lets you know when you're ready for a change.
Great care has been taken to ensure that all the finishing touches perfectly complement the mahogany finish and complete the guitar to an exceedingly high standard. Chrome die-cast tuners ensure that once you find the tuning you want, it is guaranteed to stay put. The body and neck are both finished in gloss urethane, giving a subtle protective coating to the tonewood that is durable enough to withstand rubbing whilst playing but thin enough to allow the wood to resonate unimpeded. A beautiful tortoiseshell pickguard protects the body from unwanted nicks and scrapes.
