Cats Eyes CE350

Post by #44 » Tue Sep 03, 2019 10:57 am

I'm not much of an acoustic player (yet) but I've been wanting to find a decent one for the collection that I can start playing more.

Just saw this one come up for sale and I'm wondering if anyone can tell me more about this guitar.

https://vancouver.craigslist.org/van/ms ... 05499.html

Is it a solid top?
I'm assuming laminate back and sides?
Rosewood fretboard?
Can you identify the year with the serial number?

Anything you guys can tell me about this guitar is greatly appreciated!

I'm not sure if that would be a solid top. I thought they started in a higher model range number but the ad doesn't say the year.

For $300 i'd hit that all day long if it was in nice shape when i went to check it out. Even has a case !!

Check for the usual suspects.

For a 1980's solid top an 'S' should come behind the 'type number', e.g. CE350S. That model would also have bound neck and headstock.
