Every bass player should have a high-quality instrument for those times when the acoustic guitars come out. The Fender CB-100CE Bass provides everything you need—great tone, impressive projection and versatile onboard electronics—all at an easily affordable price. Its dreadnought cutaway shape ensures that you’ll be heard and be able to comfortably reach every fret on the fingerboard (on a neck with a familiar Jazz Bass® profile). With great-sounding unplugged and amplified tone, the CB-100CE ensures that bassists can always be a big part of the acoustic session.

FISHMAN® PREAMP WITH BUILT-IN TUNER
A Fishman® pickup/preamp system gives your acoustic instrument peerless amplified performance, with a variety of onboard controls and no compromise whatsoever on pure, rich and resonant acoustic tone. The built-in tuner is conveniently placed right where you can see it, helping to keep your intonation right on the money.
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
GRAPH TECH NUT AND BRIDGE SADDLE
Graph Tech string nuts and bridge saddles enhance the sustain, clarity and tonal consistency of an acoustic instrument. Neither too soft nor too brittle, they eliminate troublesome string binding, and they deliver performance, workability and appearance that easily outdo other plastics and come remarkably close to real bone.
