      A great acoustic/electric at a great price; covers many bases, very versatile. New construction includes scalloped bracing for a livelier top vibration. Good volume and tone! (I am an associate for Sam Ash Carle Place)

        Comments about Fender CD-60CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        The Fender CD-60CE offers an outstanding sound with minimal investment. With 3 finishes available there is always a finish for you. The sound is supported by spruce wood which is known to be a great warm sounding wood and is often found on the higher end models. Fender has placed the Fishman III pick up system in this guitar which has an active onboard preamp and tuner. I'm a Staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music..

          Comments about Fender CD-60CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          These are fantastic beginning guitars. Perfect for someone who wants to spend a little more money when purchasing their first instrument and wants to venture into the world of acoustic electrics. Necks aren't too thin or too thick to where hand fatigue would be an issue while spending many hours practicing chords and the electrics are simple enough to where someone with a basic understanding of sound can grasp the fundamentals of it. The solid top is definitely a plus in tone and resonance and the looks make it exciting to pick up and play.

              This is a great guitar for a beginner or intermediate player. Even a pro who just needs a good guitar to lug around would love this. If you are a beginner want something a little more solid than a $100 guitar, this would be ideal. You can play it both acoustically or through an amp. And the tuner is a great addition! It comes with a hardshell case so you can take it with you anywhere. Just come in and talk to our guitar guys, they are the best!

              I have owned this cd60ce for about a year. It was a gift from a relative. I was at first reluctant at a Fender acoustic as they are more known for there electrics but soon realized how great a guitar this is. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music stores

                Comments about Fender CD-60CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                Wow is all I have to say to sum up what I think of this guitar. I have not been the biggest fan of Fender acoustic guitars in the past, but this one has me thinking differently. I didn't expect such a great guitar based off of its retail pricing, but boy was I wrong!!!

                Great action, comfortable, great/warm tone and a hardshell case?!!! Never did I think it was possible! A must buy for Fender fans as a primary or back-up gigging guitar. Beginners can start with this guitar as well and feel good about getting a guitar that will be comfortable and easy to play right from the box. Do yourself a favor and go to Sam Ash and demo this thing ASAP. You won't be let down.

                  Comments about Fender CD-60CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                  I honestly can't believe the price that this is sold for. This is a great little guitar AND it comes with a case!?! Great for beginners that want a really good guitar or for the pro that wants a great guitar that he doesn't have to worry about! Take this guitar camping or into the recording studio! It'll sound awesome acoustic or plugged in, with the case you'll be protected getting there, and with the built-in tuner you'll always be in-tune (and never have to worry about losing/forgetting your tuner!)

                    It's a great sounding guitar that looks great, comes with a hard case and travels well. Take it to the beach one day, to the mountains the next day, and to the desert the day after that. Three colors to choose from- although black is my favorite- and plays great for the price!

                      Comments about Fender CD-60CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                      Fender has really come into their own in the acoustic market in recent years, especially when it comes to offering popular features that everyone can afford.

                      The CD-60CE I tested was great right out of the box! The action was low and handled both strumming and soloing with nary a buzz! The neck was very comfortable and easy to work with, and the guitar had a nice chime when strumming unplugged. And how many guitars under $500 (or even $1000) do you know of that come with a hardshell case?! This one does!

                      The secret weapon here was the Fishman® Isys III Pickup System with active onboard preamp and tuner. The guitar sounded HUGE plugged in, even with the 3-band EQ set flat. Fishman makes some of the best acoustic electronics in the world, and this is no exception. The tuner is vert fast and accurate, and bright enough for dark stages. Whether making your first jump into electric-acoustic, or looking for a useable, dependable guitar for very little money - this one just might be the one you've been looking for.
