The CD-280S dreadnought offers the best of both worlds—a solid spruce top for that nice mellow sound, with rosewood back and sides for bright, classic tone.
Upgrades include a new tortoise shell pickguard and mother-of-pearl rosette design, new compensated rosewood bridge design, aged bridge pins with black dots, mother-of-pearl Fender logo headstock inlay, and smaller (3 mm) dot fingerboard inlays. Features include scalloped X bracing, mahogany neck with 20-fret rosewood fingerboard and dual-action truss rod, and die-cast tuners.

I just bought one of these and am quite impressed with it.
- Very easy to play
- Very nice looking guitar
- Strap button installed in a practical place by factory.
- Tone is not fabulous, but is about right for a guitar at this price point. All my others are $1000+ instruments.
