The CD-280SCE dreadnought cutaway 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, die-cast tuners and Fishman® Isys III pickup system with active onboard preamp, tuner, volume and tone controls.
