The Fender CB-60SCE acoustic-electric bass guitar combines the resonant tone of an acoustic instrument with the power and versatility of electric capabilities. The solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides produce full, rich tones that fill the room unplugged. When it's time to plug in, the built-in Fishman pickup system faithfully captures the natural acoustic sound and allows you to shape your tone with the onboard EQ. The slim-taper mahogany neck and 22-fret laurel fingerboard provide comfortable playability. Whether on stage or in the studio, the CB-60SCE delivers acoustic bass tone and performance like no other.

Resonant Tonewoods Produce a Warm, Articulate Sound

The CB-60SCE features a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides, tonewoods prized for their resonant and balanced acoustic properties. The spruce top brings out the bass's warm, mellow tones while the mahogany back and sides add richness, depth and clarity. Together they produce full, articulate tones with a resonant sustain. The concert-sized body provides enhanced volume so your basslines can be heard in an unplugged setting.

Slim, Comfortable Neck Profile

The CB-60SCE has a slim-taper mahogany neck for comfortable playability. Its easy-to-play profile has a gradual taper from the nut to the higher frets that slides effortlessly under your hand. The 22-fret laurel fingerboard has dot inlays to help guide you to each note. Whether you prefer fingerstyle or pick playing, the CB-60SCE's slim neck will make soloing and complex basslines a joy to perform.

Flexible Electronics System Captures Your Acoustic Tone

The built-in Fishman pickup system faithfully captures the CB-60SCE's natural acoustic bass tone and allows you to shape your sound with the onboard controls. The flexible preamp includes volume, bass, middle and treble EQ controls so you can cut or boost frequencies to suit your needs. The pickup accurately reproduces the resonance and subtle nuances of your acoustic sound. When amplified, the CB-60SCE delivers the same full, rich tone you experience unplugged so you never lose the essence of your acoustic bass sound.

Premium Appointments and Playability

The CB-60SCE includes premium appointments for enhanced playability and performance. Die-cast tuners provide accurate, stable tuning while the adjustable truss rod allows you to tailor neck relief to your preferences. A tortoiseshell pickguard protects the spruce top from pick scratches. The single-cutaway body shape gives you full access to the upper frets. Overall, the CB-60SCE delivers professional-level features, tone and performance at an affordable price from Fender.
