Fender CD-60S Acoustic Guitar
Fender CD-60S Acoustic Guitar is one very playable dreadnought with a wide, well-balanced tone that belies its modest price. Ideal for beginners – fun for all. Part of Fender’s Classic Design series, the CD-60S All-Mahogany switches up typical beginner’s fare with a dreadnought acoustic that pairs that very attractive solid-mahogany top with laminated mahogany on the back and sides.
Build and playability
An all-mahogany build? In the tone wood menu that might read “warm,” “mellow,” “pronounced midrange with caramel aftertaste,” but first we must draw your attention to the neck. It is what Fender describes as its “Easy-to-play” shape, and what we’d probably call a thin C shape. Potatoes, pot-ah-toes, it is slim, easy fit, perfect for players with smaller hands or those with a bit of growing to do. The walnut fingerboard is a flattish 12” radius, with the edges rolled off for a smooth feel. It’s exceptionally comfortable for the fretting hand.
If you’re using a pick, there’s a very musical balance to its voice that skews towards the organic woodiness of Delta blues, yet with an abundant presence and clarity to make the CD-60S All-Mahogany a good fit for fingerstyles, too. The bass notes bloom nicely, and here we are getting the benefit from that resonant solid top. Under the hood, Fender has opted for a tried-and-tested scalloped X-bracing pattern.
You could alternatively spring for Fender’s spruce-topped CD-60S. It has a little extra sparkle in the top end. But there’s something very alluring about the All-Mahogany dread’. It has an old-school charm and a new-school feel, with a very respectable factory setup that promises to repay your practicing efforts in tone.
Crucially for a beginner’s acoustic, Fender gets the neck profile bang on. The CD-60S is a joy to play, and backs this up with an impressive tone, making chords sound full and wide, yet with a detailed midrange and a vibrant top-end that adds a little magic to the mix.
