Last week I had bought a Epiphone PR-150 which I thought was good but I ended up returning it. I ordered this one instead because at heart, I am a 100% Fender guy and I also was mesmerized by the Mahoghany finsh. Mine came in yesterday and I could not be any happier than a pig in you know what ! I'm 55 years old and have been playing guitar for 43 years and IMO, this is the best sounding Acoustic I have ever laid my hands on. I can't believe that this is only a 300 dollar instrument , not with all of the extras that are included such as the Hardshell case and the Allen wrench for the truss rod and also, the extra bridge saddle as well. It only took a few minutes to do a height adjustment to fit my personal settings and a quick string change and I was on my way. This guitar exudes tone in spades along with some serious sustain for a acoustic. Plus the built in tuner works amazingly well. The Fishman pickup is a work of art and sounds just great through my Fender Champion 30 Combo although I do plan to invest in a Fender Acoustasonic amp in the very near future. I have been playing no-stop and it is my new No.1 Thanks Fender for such a fine instrument which will bring me years of joy.

Ok, it is made by Yamaha, that's a plus, but it's not a solid top guitar. Even their FG-800 was a questionable move because you lost the sparkling highs of the previous FG700s. A laminate is plywood, put a mahogony veneer on it and it still is. Get the sitka spruce model instead.

Great Guitar for the Money

By AARON

Comments about Fender CD60CE All-Mahogany Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This thing is hands down the best sub-300 dollar guitar I've ever played. I gig regularly at bars, clubs, and anywhere that will give me money, and it has been faithful for the last year so far. Other than wanting a Matte finish, this thing met every one of my expectations. I think it will hold me over until I can afford my Martin. :P

    For the price, this guitar really exceeded my expectations. The woodwork and hardware are very attractive and good quality. It has good action and the sound is pretty consistent with more expensive guitars of this size, though hard to describe it as rich. Really nice, high quality case, too!

        Great value

        By David Roach

        from Buffalo, NY

        Comments about Fender CD60CE All-Mahogany Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I was looking for an inexpensive acoustic guitar. I have a Martin 000-28 and just don't like to take it outside of the house. I read some good reviews about this fender product, tried it and purchased it with the 15% President's Day discount. The guitar is well made. It has a relatively thin neck which is very comfortable. I have been surprised by the quality of the p/u. I have been playing the guitar through a fender super champ plus with chorus and reverb dialed up - a great sound. I've been playing for 50 years, have a few great old electrics ('67 tele, roland-ready strat, Gibson 355 and Epiphone Joe Pass) and I am enjoying this new one.

          Bought the Guitar for one of his 18 th birthday presents. I basically bought because of its color and being a Fender. The numerous reviews, no one else was disappointed with their purchase. He was super happy with it and it needed little tuning right out of the case. The guitar comes with a hard case. I believe in the store it comes with a soft case.

            I just got this guitar yesterday and I'm already in love. I have played an older Washburn and it's perfectly molded to my body so I was a little bit reluctant to get this guitar. This guitar feels great! I got the Mahogany and the finish is beautiful! Definitely recommend!

                I already had a couple of other Acoustic Guitars ... but when I picked this one up and played it, it had just such a nice feel and sound that I had to have it ... the action is awesome ... I have arthritis and so had been playing a nylon string for that reason. After having played this guitar for over a month now it is even easier on my hands than playing the nylon ... it has quickly become my favorite go to guitar ... just can't put it down !!!

                  I recently got this guitar, and it is absolutely stunning. Sounds great, looks great. The wood is definitely a bit darker in person. The strings were a bit dirty when I got them, but that is an easy fix. Beautiful sound, easy to play, overall a great product.

                  i ordered this guitar from ebay (it was cheaper + it came with a fender hardcase for a cheaper price) and wow. This is my first $200+ guitar, and its incredible. I've been playing for about 2 years, and the Fender cd60ce, is the next step for any guitar player (that wants an acoustic). the tones are so bright and crisp and low but clean, the action is perfect. The...electric mechanism i guess if you would call it. comes with a built in tuner, which is very easy to use. volume control and bass middle and treble controls. I don't have a very good amp, but still it has a full clean sound. I most certainly do recommend this guitar, to anyone.

                          I recently purchased this guitar and brought it to a small party last week. We had about 5 guitarist there, everyone wanted to play the Fender. These are Taylor and Martin guys who love this guitar. I would recommend this to all guitarist from novice to pro. This is the best value purchase I have ever made.

                            This guitar looks, plays and sounds great. The case is nice too. My only complaint is that the photo that Guitar Center shows is not what the guitar looks like. The actual guitar has a very symmetrical running grain, not as nice as the photo.
