The smaller folk-size body of the CF-140S makes it perfect for more intimate performances, like the ones where you showcase your original songs. Plus, it offers the sonic advantages of a solid spruce top and scalloped “X” bracing, which project your sound with clarity and authority. The CD-140S is also very comfortable to play, with wider string spacing and a satin-finish mahogany neck great for novice players and fingerpickers alike.
Scalloped bracing is thinner than more conventional bracing. That means that the bracing pattern inside the guitar uses less wood, which means that soundboard mass is reduced. This lets the top resonate more freely, resulting in better tone with more nuance and greater projection.
Bone Nut and Saddle
String nuts and bridge saddles fashioned from bone contribute to brighter, clearer acoustic tone. Many players consider them more “organic” sounding, with tonal quality unmatched by string nuts and bridge saddles made using synthetic materials.
An acoustic guitar with a solid top literally resonates with a more individual tonal character. Because it’s a single piece of wood uninterrupted by seams, laminates and the like, it vibrates with a more “organic” consistency and a more “true” voice.
