I recently purchased the 400CE at Guitar Center. I usually play American solid body electrics, but grabbed this one off the wall to play chords with my friend who was jamming on a semi-hollow electric. I loved the easy action and great tone from this guitar from the moment I picked it up. Couldn't put it down! The next day I went back and played a bunch of acoustics, some of which cost 3 times what this one cost but this was by far my favorite. So I bought it and have a hard time putting it down now! All my friends comment on the nice tone and it looks great to boot! Love the inlay at 12th fret. The on-board tuner is very accurate. Great guitar; Great job as usual Fender!

I bought this same exact guitar about 3 months ago and am very happy with it. It has excelent tone and plays beautifully. I was looking for a quality acoustic but did'nt have a lot of money to spend. I picked mine up from a national retailer for about $200.00 less than the price listed here. If you want a quality guitar for a great price, you cant go wrong with this one.
