The Fender CN-140SCE Classic Design Electro Acoustic Guitar With Case combines the elegance of a nylon strung sound with the same comfortability that Fender instil in all their Classic Design models. Whether you're just starting out in the world of guitar, or are looking for a worthy recording/touring companion, then the CN-140SCE is the perfect choice.
Thinline Concert cutaway body shape
The Fender CN-140SCE is shaped to a thinline concert body shape with single-cutaway. The thinner body depth makes it very comfortable to perform with, whilst ensuring a punchy mid to high-end response that suits the nylon strings beautifully. The single-cutaway allows your fretting hand to reach the upper parts of the fingerboard with the greatest of ease.
The back and sides are built using laminated rosewood, which produces a rich midrange energy that is infused with warmth. The laminate stands up well with regard to changes in humidity and temperature - a must for a road-worthy model. The top is made from solid cedar, which yields a subtle projection. Classical fan bracing reinforces the top to prevent buckling of the soundboard over time, whilst allowing it to resonate to its full potential. Played acoustically, the CN-140SCE is a joy to listen to.
Solid mahogany neck
Fitted to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which is shaped to Fender's 'Easy-to-Play' profile to establish a feeling of comfort along its entire length. Rather than adopting a wide neck as is customary of classical models, Fender chose to incorporate a narrower design to match the comfort of their other Classic Design models.
Paired with the neck is a gorgeous rosewood fingerboard, which features rolled edges to reinforce playing comfort. At your disposal are 20 frets, which are decorated with 3mm pearloid acrylic dot inlays that act as a simple yet effective navigational aid. The softer nylon strings aren't just ideal for classical purists, but also aid in creating a more enjoyable learning experience for those who are new to the guitar, as well as younger players.
Fishman Classic Design pickup/preamp
Fender have tasked Fishman with handling the CN-140SCE's electronics, and their Fishman CD preamp translates the smooth response of the nylon strings and cedar top exquisitely. The control layout is delightfully simple, yet produces highly versatile results. You'll find a volume control, as well as a three-band EQ for shaping bass/middle/treble frequencies. Tailoring your sound to match your musical style, and performing environment can be done with minimal effort, enabling you to focus on playing your heart out.
The Fender CN-140SCE Travel Electro Acoustic Guitar is equipped with a gig-ready hardware setup, so that you can take to the stage without any worries. The headstock is home to steadfast open-back geared tuning machines, which uphold string integrity throughout each and every performance. Graph Tech's NuBone nut upholds string tension, whilst its partnership with the rosewood bridge optimises intonation and sustain.
As if that wasn't enough, Fender have sealed the deal by including a hardshell case with every model.
