Fender CD-140SCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar

After all of my on-and-off guitar training over the years, I wanted, and really needed, a decent acoustic to complement my other musical endeavors (where I’ve gotten much further along), and get serious about guitar again. I also wanted an alternative to my nice, humble, Schecter Omen 6 electric.

Well my new Fender CD-140SCE acoustic-electric guitar is an amazing value, and a great guitar by any measure.

My Requirements

My requirements for a new guitar were simple, but important to me:

  • around a $300 out-the-door price
  • good acoustic-only tone
  • electric-ready-to-go
  • good preamp for the above
  • easy to change battery for the above*
  • and… a tuner built-in to the preamp section!

Well, I got all of these things with this Fender. And I couldn’t be happier. And, I haven’t missed a night of practice! BTW, I’m spoiled by the on-board tuner.

*Yes, I remember the days of having to take all of the strings off (!!) to change the battery on some original acoustic-electric designs.
