Description

Details

With much focus being given to the rise of the acoustic guitar it's no surprise that the Leaders in the field have decided to upgrade some of the features on their best selling acoustic. The Fender CD-140 Classic Design Electro Acoustic is a roadworthy, gig-ready workhorse that doesn't compromise on quality. With restrictions to the use of Rosewood Fender have opted for Walnut for certain aspects of the new design.

Resilient dreadnought body

The Fender CD-140SCE Classic Design Electro Acoustic sports a dreadnought body which is one of the largest acoustic body types available. The dreadnought shape provides a loud robust sound ideal for strong strummers and flat pickers. The dreadnought is the most popular shape of acoustic guitar and has a resilient and hardy nature perfect for the gigging musician or a player in the transition from home practise to the live venue. The CD-140SCE Classic Design Electro Acoustic comes shipped with a hard case further emphasising its suitability for travel.

The Ovangkol Back and sides are one of the more striking features of the CD-140SCE Classic Design Electro-Acoustic, with a long energetic grain, this tonewood provides a solid bottom end, with bright middles and fine harmonic treble. As with these middle style tone-woods the sound of the guitar will evolve over time. The solid Spruce top helps embellish the bright middles and sparkling treble.

Superior fretboard experience

The solid Mahogany neck provides the smoothest yet sturdiest experience for the fretting hand. The mahogany neck provides a strong sustain and supports the bottom end of the Ovangkol and spruce tone-woods. The performance of the neck over time will not alter. The major change from the previous incarnation is the replacement of the Rosewood fingerboard for a Walnut version. The Walnut fingerboard has a slightly mellow look and tone and will age equally as well as the tonewoods used in the body.

The Walnut fretboard perfectly accompanies the walnut bridge and head-cap. The CD-140SCE Classic Design Electro Acoustic is tastefully decorated with a slim pearloid rosette and pearloid inlays. The Ovangkol grain further accentuates the classical beauty of the instrument finished off with a gorgeous Tortoiseshell pickguard.

Fishman Presys Plus Preamp System

Fender has equipped the CD-140SCE with Fishman's Presys Plus side-mounted preamp system. Whether you're amplifying your signal for the stage, hitting the studio, or jamming with friends, the onboard electronics allows you to be heard, whilst retaining the crisp acoustic timbre of the body.

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, and Phase. 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.

Hardware

The CD-140SCE Classic Design Electro Acoustic has die-cast chrome tuners which provide stable tuning in the harshest of live conditions. Fender uses their own brand strings which come equipped and have a bright sound with a good life span.

The CD-140SCE Classic Design Electro Acoustic is a thoroughbred of acoustic guitars and has value way beyond its price tag. It has an even dynamic sound which is both loud and vibrant thanks to the dreadnought shape and choice of tonewoods. The Solid Spruce top and Tortoiseshell pick-guard will help any player stand out. If you don't already own an acoustic this is a must-have.
