An amazing value in a solid-spruce-top dreadnought, the CD-140S offers remarkable volume, full and articulate tone, and design features you’d find in more high-end instruments, such as scalloped “X”-bracing, a compensated bridge with aged pins, and more. For songwriting, practicing, performing and any other musical occasion, the CD-140S is an excellent choice for beginning and intermediate guitarists who want a traditional acoustic with a comfortable neck and inspiring tone, or for experienced players looking for a second guitar.
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.
String nuts and bridge saddles fashioned from bone contribute to brighter, clearer acoustic tone. Many players consider them more "organic" sounding, with tonal quality unmatched by string nuts and bridge saddles made using synthetic materials.
An acoustic guitar with a solid top literally resonates with a more individual tonal character. Because it’s a single piece of wood uninterrupted by seams, laminates and the like, it vibrates with a more "organic" consistency and a more "true" voice.
