The guitar looks fairly well made although it has had mixed reviews from customers. The CD-110CE is made in China but this doesn’t necessarily mean it lacks quality. Quite a lot of effort has gone into producing the best quality possible from this design.

The guitar came thru quickly…arrived in perfect shape…double boxed for protection….the guitar was made in China but it seems to be well made and the electrical tuner and preamp are terrific…this was a reconditioned guitar but who knows what was wrong with it as it seems perfect now… more

OK Sound

Not recommended – The Fender Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric guitar does have a booming sound and an affordable price which may make it a possible candidate for the beginner guitar enthusiast. It does lack some of the richness of other guitars in the price range and not every customer is satisfied with the product that has arrived after shipping.

A better choice in this price range would be the Yamaha FG700S or the Cordoba C5 Acoustic Guitar. If you do like the Fender CD-110CE you can find the best price here.
