The CD-100 has been the choice of thousands as their first “real” acoustic for a simple reason: Its combination of good quality and excellent value make it perfect for anyone who wants to play a comfortable satin-finish guitar without a huge investment. While excellent for students, the CD-100 Left-Handed is more than just a beginner’s instrument; it’s also perfect for anyone who wants a second guitar for traveling, playing at the beach or around the campfire, and more. With great traditional looks, excellent tone and fine design details, it gives the impression of a much more high-end instrument.
Scalloped bracing is thinner than more conventional bracing. That means that the bracing pattern inside the guitar uses less wood, which means that soundboard mass is reduced. This lets the top resonate more freely, resulting in better tone with more nuance and greater projection.
Graph Tech string nuts and bridge saddles enhance the sustain, clarity and tonal consistency of an acoustic instrument. Neither too soft nor too brittle, they eliminate troublesome string binding, and they deliver performance, workability and appearance that easily outdo other plastics and come remarkably close to real bone.
Simply put, coated strings sound better and last longer. Your strings are where the rubber meets the road, so to speak, and they’re continually exposed to dirt, grime, the vagaries of climate and oxidation, and more. Fender coated strings resist all of this tone-deadening unpleasantness with marvelously smooth feel, improved resistance to corrosion and longer life.
