Went to GC prepared to spend about $600. Played a bunch of $400 - $600 acoustics. This was in the used gear rack and the inexpensive price scared me from picking it up. My girlfriend suggested I grab and play it. What a jewel (her and this guitar)!
Keep in mind that most (if not all) acoustic guitars will require a "set-up" out of the box. This is due to the fact some guitar players (like Stevie Ray Vaughn)prefer heavy guage strings. Others (like me) go light to medium. The bridge on my CD60 is lowered considerably for low action , but not too low as to create buzz when mashing strings.
I have the black model and removed the pick guard. The solid spuuce wood top (the part with the hole in it) gives a nice full sound. Laminate tops tend to be on cheaper guitars and generally don't sound as well as solid tops. The neck is truss rod adjustable.Quality heads (tuner pegs). Smooth binding. The only thing I may change out is the nut to a composit bone or similar.
This would be a great starter guitar, and should hold a fairly good value if the beginner is like 90% of all beginners and the guitar collects dust until you decide to sell it. Buy junk and you will be trying to sell junk. This Fender aint junk. Buy it and play the snot out of it!

My advise would be to save your money for something of higher quality.
First of all the frets are not polished, which in turn when you bend a string, it makes a harsh grainy sound. Second the pick up system was terrible on the one I recieved, 6th string was loud, 5th half the volume was gone, 4th and 3rd was silent, 2nd and 1st was three quarter of what the 5th was. The only good thing I can say is that it chorded about 98% true up and down the neck. Tuning keys were OK, so do not expect Grovers tuners. The hard shell case was the best thing about this package, however no one should buy a guitar for the case.

Great guitar love the sound second guitar I picked up in the store amd right away loved it. I have a hard time making decision but this one was easy. Great guitar to just jam with friends or practice with. Probably gone with the all mahogany if I had known this was laminated though. Real wood is always the best, but this guitar performs just as good

      Great guitar for the price

      By Eric Baker

      from Cincinnati

      Comments about Fender CD60CE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I got this acoustic during a sale a few years ago for only $200 with the case included. Best deal I have ever got at Guitar Center. This is a great guitar for the price, and made well enough to be a decent gigging guitar. I recommend it.

      Comments about Fender CD60CE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      as soon as i opened it up totally loved it, and not knowing I get a free case and getting one was even better. Even tho I have ordered a gig back oh well. Would definitely recommend this guitar extremely easy to tune and rarely goes out of tune.The pics do not give it any justice either it even look nice good luck and hope this review helps. oh and one other thing not that i wanst to talk bat but the bottom strap button wasnt glued in and O droped it on ground so watch out for that thanks.

        Comments about Fender CD60CE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        This was a level 4 return. Musicians Friend did a great job with photos to show the damage. I was able to make the repair at home. The bridge saddle also needed lowered, and neck adjusted. I am thrilled with a quality guitar for a fraction of the cost of a new guitar. Thanks again Musicians Friend for fast , friendly service.
