The Fender CT-140SE Travel Electro Acoustic Guitar With Case is the perfect choice for younger players who want the perfect instrument to start on, or for everyone else who just wants an exceptional travelling instrument. The team at Fender have gone to great length to maximise the value on offer here, and for such an affordable model, it is an absolute diamond. Whether you're hitting the road for business or leisure, the CT-140SE should be with you everywhere you go.
New Travel body shape
Taking their cue from the already modestly sized Auditorium body shape, Fender designed their new Travel body shape to be more portable whilst retaining comfort and playability. The result is a scaled-down 23.5-inch length that can go the distance, sounds amazing, and plays like a dream. Thanks to the inclusion of durable tonewoods, the guitar is well equipped to handle life on the road, without sacrificing on tonal quality.
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 spruce, a highly resonant tonewood that projects the timbre with gusto. For such a small guitar, it boasts an impressive dynamic range, responding eloquently to both fingerstyle and flatpickers alike. Reinforcement is afforded to the top via scalloped X bracing, which prevents unwanted warping from affecting the soundboard over time.
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. 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.
Fishman pickup and preamp
When taking to a larger stage, the CT-140SE is equipped with the Fishman Presys pickup system with onboard preamp and tuner. Control over your tone comes in the form of a master volume control, as well as a three-band treble/mid/bass EQ, and a phase switch. The simple to use setup is remarkably powerful, and allows you to tailor your sound to suit your musical style and performance environment with ease. The onboard tuner guarantees that you can keep on top of things between songs if you need to adjust or re-tune during a set.
The Fender CT-140SE 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.
