this would be guitar #28 I've owned and really it deserves its high rating. Some people expect perfect frets and all for under 300$ come on 300$ isn't what it used to be in the 90s or whatever.

The tuners I'd switch to Grovers 18:1 or whatever you've had a great experience with and maybe a new set of bridge pins but besides that you get a very solid guitar. To polish the frets a little bit of micro mesh or steel wool and you're set it shouldn't be that big of a concern especially if it's your first name brand guitar.

Nato is a nice wood for tone , it's mahogany grown in the middle east so it shares a lot of the same characteristics in tone. The spruce top may be laminate but big deal. The feel matches this 1200$ BC Rich Warbeast I had it's amazing what a little bit of glossy polyurethane can do. When I saw a fishman preamp and pickup system on this I was happy because even though Fender slapped their name on it anyone even a hardcore electric guitar player knows fishman.

so this has room to grow on and has potential to be a professional guitar don't let the marketing get in the way. I mean for this price you're not getting a Taylor , Martin , Rainsong or high end Ovation that is common sense but it's 60% the player anyways. But around this price range also check out Ovation a plastic bowled one sounded as nice as 1000$+ acoustics I played in various shops and models.

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.

    I'm a bass player and brass player who is learning guitar. This is an excellent guitar for the price and I would recommend it highly. I was very happy with the case that was included as I was not expecting such a quality case. Love the onboard preamp/tuner. Very useful.

      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.

      Excellent guitar for the price

      Comments about Fender CD60CE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Excellent guitar for the price..the tuner works good..also sounds great when plugged into a Fender frontman amp..it chords very easy..tuners are okay but if you're looking for high quality tuners like on a Martin, then you need to buy a Martin and pony up about $2500..I'm very pleased with the guitar and would encourage anyone looking for a great guitar at a great price, this is definitely the right choice.

      Comments about Fender CD60CE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I bought this guitar in 2007, Its a fantastic first guitar, good enough that it was never a struggle to play, cheap enough to not be a huge investment. My dad is a veteran guitar player of almost 30 years and he helped me pick it out, much better than most similarly priced guitars.

      I still have and love this guitar, If it ever broke to the point where it was unrepairable i would buy another one.

      Mine is black, If i could go back i would get a different finish as it is a pain to keep it clean and finger print clean, still sounds and plays like a champ though.

        Comments about Fender CD60CE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I love the sound and feel, but I hate the rear strap button. The button is plastic with a nail in the center. I had a lot of trouble putting a strap lock on it. I probably will not buy another Fender acoustic because of this.

        A good looking accoustic with beautiful finish. The guitar has a mellow resonance to it; fret action is ok; stays in tune after long play. It even comes with a hard shell case, what a bang for the buck!
