The baby of Fender’s electro-acoustic Guitars, the CD-60CE stuffs high-price features into a low-cost instrument. Possibly the most popular shape available to acoustic players, the dreadnought is so famed because of its effectual size, which gives a huge sound with robust bass and clear mids, in a comfortable shape. This has made it the go-to shape for flatpickers and strummers, who want a balanced sound whether playing lightly, or with force, but with easy-to-handle dimensions. This model also includes a cutaway, giving unrestricted access to the upper frets.
A classic combination, this model takes the traditional dreadnought shape and builds it with a spruce top, with mahogany at the back and sides, and a black binding outlining the join. Spruce has been popularised because of its wide dynamic capacity, clarity, and bright tone, and with mahogany used for the body, with its emphasised midrange and warmer tone, the overall sound of the instrument is very balanced and highly usable in any genre.
The top also benefits from a scalloped X-bracing, giving it extra strength, while visually the instrument’s body is finished off nicely with a black pickguard and a mother-of-pearl acrylic rosette design.
