The Classic Design CN models combine the easy playability and distinct tone of nylon strings with the comfort of steel-string spacing. We've replaced the typically wide necks normally found on classical guitars with the same easy-playing neck profile found on all other Classic Design models. As a nod to tradition, the CN-140SCE uses a solid cedar top, along with rosewood back and sides for a warm and mellow tone.
The CN-140SCE provides a supremely comfortable experience for players of any skill level—the 'thinline' concert body makes it a perfect guitar for the living room and stage alike, while the single cutaway makes it easy to access higher frets. When the need to plug in arises, this model's onboard Fishman® electronics provide straightforward, yet powerful tonal control.

SOLID CEDAR TOP
An instrument crafted with cedar offers a more subdued sound compared to denser woods such as spruce, giving it a rounded and warm sound with subtle harmonic sweetness and plenty of low-end projection. It is very responsive to a light touch, making cedar an ideal choice for fingerpicking.
With its comfortably rolled fingerboard edges, this instrument's neck creates an incredibly satisfying fret-hand feel that's ideal for beginning players or experienced pros alike.
FISHMAN CLASSIC DESIGN PREAMP AND TUNER
A Fishman Classic Design pickup/preamp system adds peerless amplified performance with a variety of onboard controls to your acoustic instrument without compromising its pure, rich and resonant tone. The built-in tuner is conveniently placed right where you can see it.
ROSEWOOD BACK AND SIDES
With a pleasingly dark look, solid strength, smooth feel and excellent tonal quality, rosewood is a longtime standard for crafting quality acoustic instruments and gives this guitar an elegant appearance with rich, warm tone.
This guitar combines the easy playability and distinct tone of nylon strings with the comfort of steel-string spacing for a best-of-both-worlds feel.
