  • Fender CN-240 SCE Nylon Acoustic/Electric Thinline. Your thoughts on this guitar?

    Any opinions on the Fender CN-240 SCE Nylon Acoustic Thinline?

    I tried it out today and really liked it, and it looks really cool too.

    Solid Cedar top with Laminate Rosewood Back and Sides

    Check it out:

    Looks tasty, but I have no knowledge of this guitar. But: I have really enjoyed my Martin 00XCAE's thinline body for playing standing up--it's my gigging guitar now. Also it has a Fishman UST/preamp, and I like it way better than the electronics in my F-series Tak.

    I am very interested in getting a nylon with a PU in it. I've been playing a cheap nylon at home quite a bit recently and I'm really liking it for FS playing. I'd love to have something nylon that I could use on stage.

    If you really liked it--and got to play it amplified--I'd say go for it. The price is right.

      It looks very like the Ibanez GA5TCE:

      Gosh, I wonder if that is who Fender are using to make them?

        They do look the same! I wonder if the Ibanez is all wood or if just the top is wood. The Fender only has a solid wood top.

          The Ibanez site says:
          BackSides: Mahogany Back and Sides
          Top: Spruce Top

          Laminated back and sides but still definitely wood. However, if you were referring to solid wood, then no, the Ibanez is not all solid; it's all laminated.

            If the Ibanez is all laminate that my be why the Fender costs a bit more since the top is all wood (Cedar) but the back and sides are laminate

                  What Giants?

                  I know it's just a name but, Giants? What kind of name is that? Large Ones? If I was tasked with coming up with a name for a sports team Giants would not make my list. Sometimes people-logic eludes me.
