The entry to Fender’s electro-acoustic guitar offerings, the CD-60CE provides high-price features in a low-cost instrument, from one of the world’s most renowned guitar manufacturers. Constructed from the dreadnought blueprint, the Fender CD 60CE Electro Acoustic Guitar is built to perform. Quite possibly the most popular of all acoustic guitar shapes, the dimensions of the dreadnought provide cavernous sound in a comfortable package, which offers balance and power with robust bass and clear mids. Equally responsive to harsh play as it is to gentle, the shape is particularly popular with flatpickers and strummers. With its cutaway design, this model also offers unrestricted access to the upper register.
Taking the dreadnought body shape, this guitar builds it up with a spruce top and mahogany back and sides. A classic combination, this results in a well-balanced instrument that is stage-ready for most genres. The spruce top offers wide-ranging dynamism, and a bright and articulate tone, while the mahogany used for the body rounds out the sound with its contribution of a focussed midrange and warmer tone.
Strengthening the instrument, the interior of the top utilises scalloped X-bracing, while the exterior is finished nicely with a black pickguard and a mother-of-pearl acrylic rosette design.
This guitar has a scale length of 25.3” formed by a nato neck with a 1.69” nut width topped by a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with white dot inlays, and a rosewood bridge with compensated Graphtech Nubone saddle, while the headstock is equipped with a set of chrome-finished, die-cast tuners.
Connecting to an amplifier or P.A system is easy with the Fender CD60CE Electro Acoustic Guitar’s built-in Fishman Isys III System electronics. In addition to making amplification simple, the electronics also provide a number of extras, available from the upper bout of the instrument. These are: a Volume control, 3-band EQ (made up of: Bass, Middle, Treble), built-in tuner, and a low-battery indicator L.E.D.
