      I bought the sunburst and it is a beautiful guitar. I am a senior just beginning to play and my instructor was very complimentary of it. I feel it is a great guitar for the price, looks and sound.

      Comments about Fender Classic Design Series CD-60 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      Last christmas I bought one of these Fenders CD60 for grandson for christmas. It was a used one that I thought looked like brand new. He just absolutley loved. It played and sounded so good a few weeks ago I bought me one. It was a new though. I just love it. The sound is good, I love the smaller neck it lot easer to chord for someone like me that hasen't played in 20 years. I would recommended this guitar to anyone. You will think it cost hundereds.....

        I was told not to waste my money on a cheap acoustic. I have to tell you, I'm glad I "wasted" my money on this acoustic. The sound is full and throaty. Definitely worth what I paid and more.

          Comments about Fender Classic Design Series CD-60 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

          Went to my local music store cos i wanted to buy a mid quality accoustic (had in mind the Epiphone Hummingbird.
          When i got to the store there was this guy that was noodling around and was a good player so i got him to play a couple guitars .....
          The hummingbird was in my taste very trebly ........
          Then i got him to play a Guild, a Boucher and a Larivée all three great sounding and quite expensive guitars.
          Then i asked him to try the cd 60 and i couldn't believe how well it stood against these great guitars ...........
          I bought it right away at a ridiculously low price and the next week bought the 12 string cd120 for not much more ...........
          Great guitars ..
          My only concern is I just hope they age well........
          Well i've been playing these for around 3 years now (I Think) and they are still perfect .......... No issues!!

          Comments about Fender Classic Design Series CD-60 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

          Not the greatest of fender's guitars, but this is an all around decent guitar. Good starter guitar if you want something to start on and move up on. Won't break the bank either.
          Bought this guitar as one to learn on. I have been playing various instruments for over 10 years now, but only been playing guitar for about 2. From musical experience and when I started to learn to play, I noticed this guitar had a big sound and the tone was great. It stays in tune very well. There's no frills but it is a beautiful guitar. I had a professional musician play it before I bought it and he thought it was a decent guitar.
          This guitar gets easily scuffed, but other than that, it is put together well. It is also a little tough on the fingers.
          Good guitar for the money. Pretty sound.

          Comments about Fender Classic Design Series CD-60 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

          After getting back into playing after being away for years, I was looking for a entry level guitar that wouldn't sound like a child's toy.

          I began my search by first choosing "Country of Origin" -USA, then 5-Star ratings. I took the remaining choices and began my research. I read various reveiws and watched youtube videos and decided this was one of the better choices in its price range. The fact that it came with a hard case was a plus as well.

          Results after gettting it: Sadly, it isn't manufactured in the USA, its made in Indonesia. So I suppose Country of Origin must mean where the company was founded?

          I thought the finish was nice and it looked solid overall. The action was great and the sound was perfect for what I paid. The case is nicely lined with the typical storage compartment at the neck. The latches seem a bit "light" but once again, fine for the money.

          I may not be an expert player but I am picky consumer. I beleive I got my money's worth with this purchase and I am very happy with it. I had a cheap Martin DX1 previously and I beleive I like this Fender better at half the price. It seems to play better in my opinion. Until I can play worthy of a top of the line guitar, this one will suit me fine.

            Comments about Fender Classic Design Series CD-60 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

            I have been a weekend warrior for over 30 years and have played many different guitars in that time. A few years ago I recommended this guitar to one of my young beginning guitar students. When I got to play it after they purchased it I was surprised at how well it played and how nice it looked. Now, after two years of use by a grade-schooler (who probably doesn't take the best care of a guitar), I'm amazed that it still looks great, sounds great and plays great. Even more, it stays in tune. I highly recommend this guitar to anyone looking for a starter or intermediate guitar. Heck, it would make a great practice guitar for an experienced player who doesn't want their expensive acoustic sitting around the house.

                Comments about Fender Classic Design Series CD-60 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

                I bought an Ovation guitar a few months back and after about a month I noticed something rattling around inside. On further inspection I realized a piece of the bracing had come loose and fell off. The guitar never sounded right and it had fret buzzing which could not be fixed. I sent it back and MF being the greatest company for musical instruments took care of it no questions asked.

                A friend of mine told me about the CD-60 so I figured I would give it a try, I was not disappointed. I have been playing for 35 years and I have played just about everything out there.

                The natural CD-60 is just beautiful. It has a rich tone and the sustain is wonderful. It feels good to play, I have small hands and it is very comfortable to play. I was also shocked to see it came with a free hard shell case. Its constructed very well and has nice bracing.

                Does it sound as good as a Martin or Taylor? No, but for the price it beats a lot of 600-1000 guitars I have played which was a surprise.

                Don't worry, go ahead and buy one, you wont be disappointed.

                  I can wail away my feelings and not feel an ounce of disappointment. So funny I picked this guitar without reading reviews... One strum and I told the clerk this was the one.

                  Great beater acoustic that beats back

                  This Fender is far much better than the Roque I exchanged. The sound and simply the feel are so much nicer, and espeically when it comes with a hard case like this, it is so worth it.

                  for only 200 hundred dollars (and with a free hard shell case), this is a real bargain. I have learned to play guitar on this instrument, and it will not disappoint you. It has a great sound and is well built. I would highly recommend it.

                  Comments about Fender Classic Design Series CD-60 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

                  The only downfall is the finger prints on the guitar but i clean mine on an everyday basis so thats it, i would recomend getting a pickup to play through an amp if you like recording and playing live shows as well that is what i did.
                  This guitar is great, i have been playing for the last 8 years and had the yamaha f125, which was a good learning guitar. My fiance just suprised me this christmas with this guitar and i must say it sounds really good. She got me the sunburst and its beautiful, the actions are great, stays in tune and is very loud and vibrant. i am glad that i have this guitar my old yamaha is now retired due to years of playing on it. Fender is a great instrument and you cant beat the price on this guitar. GET IT.
                  The quality of this guitar is amazing, the spruce top makes for a great guitar. you really cant beat the price for this instrument.

                  Comments about Fender Classic Design Series CD-60 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

                  The only reason this quality instrument got a 4 star instead of 5 is because Fender tries to pass off an Orange guitar as "Sunburst". Unless it is just my particular guitar...there is no "Sunburst" to this guitar; it is orange.
                  I am not disappointed though, because it is still beautiful, and unique (the spruce top goes extremely well with the mahogany back and sides). In fact, I have named mine 'Jeruk', which is Indonesian for orange.
                  By the way; please understand---though these Fender guitars are "assembled" in Indonesia, does not mean they are of less quality than American made. Fender materials, Fender spec's, Fender made.
                  The sound is awesome. Nice crisp and resonating. I have never heard an acoustic sustain steady sound so long.
                  Not only is this a 'keeper', it is currently my most played guitar in my collection of six.
                  If you are in the market for an acoustic, I can guarantee this one will not disappoint.

                  Comments about Fender Classic Design Series CD-60 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

                  I was looking for a long time for the first guitar I've ever purchased. I have had an early 1960's Gibson ES-120T archtop that I've dinked-around on for many years, but never liked the sound unamplified much. I settled on the CD-60 in sunburst and really liked what I saw a few days later when it arrived. After a few minutes to tune it, I like what I heard even better than what I saw. I've played some nice guitars here and there and the Fender has a wonderful sound. In no way does it sound as inexpensive as it is. The hardshell case is a great bonus too.

                  This is the first guitar I ever bought. I was learning on a relatives and it didn't fit right. I wanted something better, but didn't have alot to spend. This is an awesome value of a great guitar and the hard case. The sound is good and it is easy to play. It's easy to tune and stay that way! I would recomend this to anyone wanting to learn or playing for years!

                  Great guitar and fair price
                  I've been wanting to buy an acoustic for a while now, but I never could afford the one I wanted (Taylor 110ce) lol. I found this guitar at a guitar center and played it for a little bit and I couldnt find any reason why not to buy this guitar. It sounds great. I liked the natural look rather than sunburst. The neck fits perfectly for anyone. I fell in love with it so I had to get it. Great deal for a great guitar so why not get it, right?

                  I received this guitar for Christmas last year and have been happy with it ever since. The CD-60 has wonderful tuning stability, which saves me precious time while practicing. If I had one negative comment, then it would be that fingerprints show on my sunburst finish, but I bought a cloth at the dollar store so that I can keep it clean. If you are going to buy a new acoustic guitar, then choose the CD-60 Dreadnought. It's worth every cent!
