    Just picked up an elec/acous Fender CD22cse and am quite impressed. It has a scalloped braced spruce top and Asian striped ebony b/s. I've been without an acoustic for awhile, but have owned mostly Martins and Larrivees in the past. I compared this model to all under $1000.00 in the acoustic room at my local music store. Those guitars included Takamine G series, Simon and Patrick and Guild. Kept going back to the Fender though, and it was 1/2 the price of most. Anyway, just thought I'd pass along the info in case anyone was looking for a cheap but good sounding quality instrument. Sorry if this instrument has been presented before.

    Ebony back and sides. That is interesting. I would think it would sound good. Do you have any pictures of it?

    I'm sure it's not solid ebony- just a veneer on the surface.

    I bought an orchestra sized Fender acoustic last year that had a solid cedar top, and was just a great little guitar. Except for the fact that I could feel one of the braces from the top side of the guitar. I was afraid that it would have problems, so I sent it back. Too bad, really- in every other respect it was an excellent instrument.

    My Fender A/E has a solid top and laminate back and sides. I certainly think it's a decent guitar, and I'm glad you found one you like.

    It is a looker.
