[NAMM] New Fender Acoustics Models
A few days ago, we gave you the list of Fender's instruments to be presented at this year's NAMM show. Here is the detailed decription of their Fender Acoustics models.
Fender Acoustics introduces new Classic Design series guitar models for 2011, with more than a dozen instruments receiving structural and cosmetic refinements.
Fender’s exotic-wood CD-220SCE dreadnought guitar is available in two forms, with ovangkol (a heavy West African wood) back and sides or ash burl back and sides; both with a natural-finish solid spruce top. Upgraded features are a new tortoiseshell pickguard and abalone rosette design, new compensated rosewood bridge design, black bridge pins with abalone dots, mother-of-pearl Fender logo headstock inlay and smaller (3 mm) dot fingerboard inlays. Standard features include scalloped X bracing, back center stripe mosaic inlay, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard, dual-action truss rod, gold hardware and Fishman® Presys pickup system with active onboard preamp, tuner, volume/tone controls and low-battery indicator light.
Acoustic models with solid spruce tops now feature a tortoiseshell pickguard with a new shape, a new mother-of-pearl rosette design, a new bridge shape with aged bridge pins, smaller fretboard inlays (3 mm) and a mother-of-pearl Fender logo headstock inlay. These instruments include the CD-280S, CD-280SCE, CD-140S and CD-140SCE dreadnought acoustics; the CJ-290SCE jumbo cutaway acoustic; the CA-360SCE auditorium cutaway acoustic; and the CD-160SE 12-string acoustic.
Laminate-top dreadnought acoustic models have also received significant upgrades, now featuring a black pickguard with a new shape, a new mother-of-pearl acrylic rosette design, a new bridge shape, white bridge pins with black dots, and smaller fretboard inlays (3 mm). These instruments include the CD-100 (and left-handed model), CD-100CE cutaway (and left-handed model), CD-110CE cutaway, CD-100 12-String, CD-60 and CD-60CE cutaway models.
