Fender CD-320ASRWCE All Solid Rosewood & Spruce Dreadnought w/ Fishman Preamp & Fresh Setup
Availability: In Stock
Condition: Manufacturer Refurbished
This CD-320ASRWCE acoustic-electric guitar from Fender puts high-quality in your hands without the high price. This guitar was built to Fender's strict specifications, using proven solid tonewoods, beautiful appointments, and integrated electronics with controls to dial in your ideal amplified sound, quickly and effortlessly.
The CD-320ASRWCE features a solid spruce top and solid rosewood for the back and sides. Notice that neck is one-piece construction. That's right, there's no "scarf joint" where the neck meets the headstock. This kind of expensive construction is almost unheard of these days. There simply is no substitution for solid wood construction. Laminates can't compete with the responsiveness and articulate quality of solid wood.
The CD-320ASRWCE also features a Fender-designed dreadnought body, scalloped X-bracing, and deluxe die-cast tuners. The cutaway body design provides the utmost comfort when accessing the upper-register frets and the rosewood bridge features a compensated bone nut, so your guitar will stay in precise tuning from song to song...and sound great while doing so.
This guitar's Presys+ onboard preamp system offers maximum control, performance, and quality in a small, unobtrusive format. This compact sophisticated Presys system features volume and 4 bands of EQ. To combat feedback, the Presys also has a Notch Filter and Phase Reversal switch. The onboard digital tuner has a LED display that is easily seen in dark lighting and mutes the guitar's output, so you can tune onstage discretely. The Presys+ preamp is also mated with the Fishman Sonicore pickup for solder-free, plug-and-play installation, a low battery indicator, low-profile control knobs, and a unique pivot design for easy access to the battery compartment.
This guitar's appointments are quite well done, with a tortoise shell pickguard, abalone rosette, MOP position inlays and gold hardware. To top it off, this guitar is bound on the top, back and neck.
This specific guitar has no player's wear at all and needed no refurbishing. It is discounted because this model is no longer being made and Fender chose to discount remaining inventories. It was inspected at our supplier and then came directly to us where it has just been given a complete setup. When originally offered, Fender's "Street" price for this model was $949.00 and you can even find a few being sold for that. We got a great deal on this guitar, and now it's someone else's chance to save a bunch of money.
About Our Setup:
Although this guitar played “well enough to sell” when it arrived here at LightSpeed Music, I have just given it a full "post factory" setup. The truss rod was checked and adjusted. Then, the frets were leveled, crowned and polished. These first two steps allowed me to lower the saddle and nut a bit and improve the action, while still keeping the guitar free of fret buzz. The fretboard and bridge were conditioned and the nut slots were lubed and polished. The electronics were tested and given a protective application of contact cleaner and lube. Everything was snugged up and then it was polished. Lastly, it was given a fresh set of S.I.T. 80/20 Golden Bronze strings gauged .012" to .052".
