Available in striking Sunburst, Black, and Natural finishes, the Fender CD-60 is a dreadnought guitar with construction and tone worthy of any stage, at a truly entry-level price. Part of their Classic Design Series, the Fender CD-60 features a laminated Spruce top, Mahogany body, and Nato neck all topped with a traditional Polyurethane gloss finish. These tone woods were carefully selected and combined to deliver a rich, balanced tone, equally suited to strumming, fingerpicking, or intricate lead work up and down all 20 frets of the CD-60. The Sonokeling bridge and fretboard work together to produce a present and defined punch, while the compensated saddle ensures that no matter what stacked jazz voicing you throw at it, the Fender CD-60 will deliver it in tune, all the time. Other tasty appointments on the Fender CD-60 include a black pickguard, black body and neck binding, black bridge and end-pins, dot position inlays, and multi-ABS inlays on the soundhole rosette. The CD-60's headstock is adorned with a gold silkscreened Fender logo and chrome die-cast tuners, with a 1.69-inch width at the nut and 25.3-inch scale length.

Fender CD-60: That's Not All, Folks!


You might be shocked to find out that even with such an incredibly affordable price on the CD-60, Fender saw fit to include a form-fitting hard shell case, for free! The Fender CD-60 ships set up with a set of Fender 60L Phosphor Bronze Strings, Gauges .012 to .053. As you can see, with the CD-60 Fender has managed to create an all-around working man's dreadnought at a price even a beginner can handle, without any compromise in tone, construction, or design.

Fender CD-60 Acoustic Customer Review
Sound: I love the rich and unique tone and even though I tried some really expensive guitars (for reference), before I decided to buy this one, I must say that I like the sound from the Fender more. Feature: I've only had the guitar for 4-5 days and the only adjustments I've done was to the truss rod which went just fine, the tuners works great too. Ease of Use: I bought this guitar from Germany and it shipped overseas to Sweden where I live. When it arrived the action felt really high and it was heavy to play. I'm a complete novice when it comes to guitars (this is my first one) and I have during my 2 years of play the Ukulele never touched anything regarding setup or action. I can't remember the exact action but I think the information I received with the guitar said something about 2.55mm on the 14th fret and 6th string, I actually don't know if this is high or not but it felt so to me. I watched some videos on youtube and decided to adjust the truss rod, it actually proved to be quite a bit of an upward bow when I looked at the neck and as I learned later the dual-action truss rod was tightened to make a truss rod. I simply tightened it the other way and the neck became straight as an arrow and the action is now wonderful! I haven't measured the action but I can barely get a quarter inbetween the 12th fret and the 5th and 6th string, this is what the guy in the video recommended and I just love it. The guitar went from a really hard-playing guitar to a guitar that I can closest compare to a woman, you just need to gently caress it and it will make beautiful sounds! Quality: My guitar haven't really been up to test in this area but it seems really sturdy without being clumsy or heavy. Value: Out of all the guitars I played in the same pricerange before deciding for this one, the CD-60 was clearly on top, mainly because of the rich tone. Overall: At this time I'm loving the guitar and can't imagine to switch, I might be in a bit of a honeymoon phase though but I haven't really found any weaknesses. The one thing I'm not satisfied with is the slight fret buzz I get at the 14th fret and the 5th and 6th string when playing slighty higher up the neck, however, this is something I'm planning to get fixed at my local music store.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good starter guitar."
Sound: For an inexpensive guitar the sound is very good. I replaced the strings as soon as I got it with some Clapton Martin strings and that helped a lot. Feature: No real features, unless you count the case, which is very nice. Ease of Use: I am a beginner but have tried playing several different guitars and I found this one to be very playable...the neck is very fast and smooth. Quality: For an inexpensive guitar with a case this guitar was a nice surprise. The case was very nice, the body looks clean, the finish is very good. My only trouble was when I was changing strings...it was the hardest I have ever changed. The pegs did not want to stay in the holes...they kept popping out. After a long struggle, the strings finally stayed put and the sound is very nice. As a beginner guitar this really does the trick, but of course I will be upgrading as I learn. Value: For the price this guitar is a great deal...especially with the nice case. It is not the best guitar of course, but you get your moneys worth. If you want a descent starter guitar this is a good one, but don't expect it to be your only guitar. Manufacturer Support: I have not had to deal with Fender but working with Zzounds is always a pleasure. Any time I have a question they are quick to give me the right answer. The Wow Factor: Looks are always a matter of opinion but I think it looks very nice. I got it in natural and am very happy with the looks. Overall: This will not be my go to guitar once I learn to play better. I will probably pass this guitar on to a friend that is wanting to learn. Next time I will spend a bit more and go with a non-laminated guitar, maybe a Takamine or an Epiphone. For the price, and for a beginner, this guitar is a good starting point.
Style of Music: Rock, Blues.
