FENDER® RELEASES ACOUSTIC GUITARS FIT FOR TRAVELERS 

Guitars, seen on ABC’s show, “Shark Tank,” feature design allowing players to fold the guitars in half and store in gig bag

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.  (October 22, 2013) — Fender is proud to announce two guitars set to become a traveler’s dream, the CD-140S VA and the CD-60 VA. These guitars, which have been seen on ABC’s “Shark Tank” hit television show, will go anywhere thanks to their revolutionary Voyage-Air patented hinged neck design, allowing players to fold the guitar in half and store it in its specially designed gig bag for incredibly convenient transport. 

A finely appointed and rich-sounding instrument, the CD-140S VA has a solid spruce top with quartersawn standard “X” bracing, mahogany back and sides and mahogany neck. Other features include an elegant tortoiseshell pickguard and mother-of-pearl rosette, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with 3mm dot inlays, rosewood bridge with compensated synthetic bone saddle and white with black-dot bridge pins. Special gig bag included.
