Great Value For Money

The Fender CD-60CE is made with the classic Fender quality although priced at a point that most people can afford. For this reason the CD-60CE is highly sought after amongst novices and those just starting out with their music careers. It’s a great way to get a feel for guitar playing before moving up to more expensive equipment.

It’s a great guitar for the money – the pickup works great and the auto-tuner is really good as well. This guitar is for my daugher and it works good for her.

Sounds Great

The Fender CD-60CE sounds fabulous with a choice of either acoustic or eletcric guitar playing. You can use your pick or your fingers to strum the guitar and ad the amp for added depth.

The sound is great with pick or fingers, and sounds even better with the amp. I found that it also works the amp with nylon strings which pleases me, and I probably will replace the steel strings with nylon someday… more

Good Finish

This acoustic/electric guitar from Fender has a lovely satin finish to it. This guitar is a joy to play whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro.

My band does last minute gigs, and having to take all the gear for set up is a pain sometimes, but now, I was able to grab the case and the guitar and away I went, ready to play. I had so many compliments on it’s look and tone. When they heard what I paid for it, they were floored… more

Pros & Cons

The Fender CD-60CE doesn’t have the sound quality of a top end Taylor or Martin but who’s going to notice? Not many people. This guitar has a beautiful rich tone and looks elegant on or off the stage. People will be surprised at how cheap it is. Makes a wonderful beginner guitar or second guitar for the experienced player.

This guitar, while of high quality, is made in China. So don’t be disappointed if you see the ‘Made in China’ tag on it after purchase.

What Others Are Saying

The appearance is quite lovely and rich. I know, it’s a cosmetic thing, but it really does look nice. The cutaway body is excellent so it is quite comfortable to hold while sitting in bed or on the couch or my office chair. Here’s what I don’t like… more
