A couple years ago I was looking for an acoustic / electric. Looked at all the usual makers and was underwhelmed. Was in a music store and saw this Fender cd140sce. Didn't really take it seriously but picked it up. Amazing for a $300 guitar. Came back later just to make sure I wasn't hallucinating. Bought it. It's been great for me as a guitar to just grab and noodle on. I have also played some of the more expensive acoustics that Fender has come out with recently. I like them. Play them and decide for yourselves.
