I love this guitar. It's a beautiful piece of art that looks really good on my wall (I use wall hangers for my guitars).
When I first got it and played some higher notes on the lower strings, there was this kinda annoying buzz from the inside of the guitar but this only sometimes happens if the pre-amp has a battery in it (it doesn't always happen and you get used to it). I guess I just got a faulty model but I'm fine with it because the rest of the guitar is pure perfectness :)
Overall, legendary guitar that's worth more than it's being sold for because it's beautiful and is a fender. Also, I changed the strings to some martin phosphor bronze custom light and it sounds way better :)

BETTER THAN SOLID ONES

This guitar is simply amazing. it's sound is unbelievable and it's near classical guitar sound and has its acoustic sound soul too and has a wide range of volume when its unplugged or plugged. if you are a PRO acoustic guitar player it is what you have to play with even if you have Upper models of martin or takamine. its FISHMAN system is great too and you can get a very warm sound from your Acoustic amp with its active-pickups and you can get your sound gain-ny without stress :D i recorded with this guitar and discovered this guitar made for it.
buy it and be graceless.

I have had this guitar for about 4 years..I use it as my everyday gig guitar. It's just amazing how she's though and durable. That's the best with laminate guitars, they're though as diamond, no scratches or any kind of damages..and even better is that all-satin finish that absorbs almost any thin damage and gives you a great feel on touch. Very good play-ability, rosewood fingerboard is perfect, action is also very nice set, the only bad thing with it is that you have to clean it often and give some fingerboard conditioner treats. Sound is balanced so you can play whatever u want, is that country or rock or something else, it's just a perfect adaptable instrument. It favors high-end and gives u very clear and sustained treble and there's a great balance between bass and treble, thanks to mahogany which is the best tone-wood for me cause it's so versatile. Almost all my acoustics has mahogany as back and sides (from 140 to Pro Custom dreadnoughts), the only bad thing with CD-100 sound is all laminate body and satin finish which combined give a little bit closer sound than solid top, back and sides guitars. But the fact that I would never use my solid-wood guitars anytime, anywhere cause they are so fragile gives CD-100 great advantage. It's though, great looking, has great on touch feel, it's durable, versatile, has fair amp with on-board chromatic tuner which is very useful, can go anywhere, can be played anywhere, sounds very good for laminate guitar and even better when you plug it in. One of my favorites. If you need real 'working' guitar, I highly recommend pick this one, You won't regret. Cheers..

Bought this guitar yesterday and its simply amazing, both tone and quality of finish is amazing. The matte finish also adds as a key feature to give the right feel while playing it. The attached tuner is also really helpful. I am hoping to maintain this guitar as long as I can !!

Bought it a week back and I had played it at the shop before buying it and was very satisified with what I was about to buy.
I have recorded with this guitar and it has amazing Mid tones, It rings the right amount and has just the right bass.
Again I will mention the tone is just awesome.
This will be my go to guitar for a long long time,

I'm really happy with this guitar. I just got it a few days ago, I'm really impressed with the play-ability of this guitar! I really recommend it. According to me, the relation between price/quality is worth it! :)
