The Fender CD-140SCE combines comfortable playability, great tone, and built-in Fishman electronics into one affordable acoustic guitar. This 12-string model is accessible for all skill levels and is ideal for those looking to add something different to their arsenal. The CD-140SCE is similar to the CD-60SCE but features a Graph Tech NuBone nut for improved sustain and clarity and comes with a hard case to keep your guitar protected.
The dreadnought is arguably the most popular acoustic guitar shape in the world, and for good reason. Dreadnoughts are known for being one of the louder body shapes thanks to its big sound and excellent projection and this model has a cutaway which makes it easier to reach those upper frets. With a booming bass and lower-midrange response, you're sure to be heard with a dreadnought. This shape is responsive to both strumming and fingerpicking so it'll handle whatever style you throw at it. This model has laminate ovangkol back and sides and a solid spruce top for a balanced sound.
This model is a 12-string guitar. 12-string guitars have 6 pairs of strings, with the lower 3 usually tuned in pairs of octaves and the upper 3 pairs are tuned to the same note as each other. The result is a natural chorus effect that sounds like two guitars playing at once. With a 12-string you get a rich, full sound, with an incredible bell-like ring that'll instantly reinvigorate your playing.
The CD-140SCE has Fender's 'Easy-to-Play' neck which features rolled fingerboard edges. Players of all skill-levels will enjoy this neck profile but especially beginners and those unfamiliar with acoustic guitars as the neck feels immediately comfortable in the hand so you can spend more time focussing on your playing.
For playing gigs or for easy recording, the CD-140SCE comes with built-in Fishman electronics. The preamp features an onboard tuner, as well as volume, bass, and treble controls for shaping your tone. With the built-in electronics in the CD-140SCE, you can take it straight out the box and jump right into performing live or recording.
