        Comments about Fender DG-60 Acoustic Guitar:

        I just bought one of these yesterday in the natural finish at a major retailer whose name shall remain unknown but, I think everybody on here knows who I'm talking about. Anyway, I already own a Fender CD60CE in Mahogany and was in the mood to add another Acoustic to my collection when I saw this one practically begging for me to try it out. So, I tried it , liked it, paid for it and went home. The first thing I noticed that , it did not need a set up at all. Everything was perfect on it from the frets to the height of the action. The only thing I did was to change the stock Fender strings to a new set of Elixirs which were a major improvement as far as tone and sound are concerned. This is much more than a beginner's guitar as far as I'm concerned folks. It can be used for gigs and with proper care, will last a lifetime. IMO, Fender Acoustics do not get the respect that they deserve. I love this one and it's a keeper.

          We bought 2 of these for Christmas gifts, 1 for my daughter who is using it for guitar classes and 1 for my self to play with her. My family and friends are real happy with the product, we are in no way pro's but for the price they are fantastic guitars compared to the other 3 guitars we have been using. Sound, Quality of workmanship, looks so far we are very impressed with them both. My daughters teacher at school was very impressed with my daughters guitar as well.

            Comments about Fender DG-60 Acoustic Guitar:

            I have been playing guitar for 43 of my 50 years. I've owned some really nice guitars including Gibson Les Pauls, Ibanez, Fenders, etc. I was looking for an inexpensive acoustic guitar and checked out the reviews and settled on this one (in black). I am not disappointed. I am amazed at how well this guitar sounds. It really projects the sound. I sanded a little off the bottom of the saddle and made a minor adjustment on the truss rod and now it plays wonderfully. The finish is flawless. I can't believe the quality of this guitar at such a low price. I would definitely recommend this guitar.

              Comments about Fender DG-60 Acoustic Guitar:

              I recently purchased the Fender DG-60 in black and I love it! The other Fender acoustic that was advertised as the CD-60 was so similar in looks, specs & price that I contacted Fender and was told that the CD(Classic Design)-60 is the new model designation for the DG(Dreadnought Guitar)-60. Both models are one in the same. Also reviews on both models are great. Hope that clears up some confusion for you other Fender fans.

                    After many problems with another brand, I settled on the Fender DG-60. I wanted an inexpensive acoustic six string to back up my Epiphone FT-85 12 string and to get a different sound on certain songs.The Fender arrived in good shape and when I brought it to my music store, I found that no setup was needed. It is easy and fun to play and the sound is excellent. And the price was certainly right.The only con is that it does need frequent tuning but even that isn't a big deal.It seems that I made the right choice with the DG-60. I really like it!

                    Comments about Fender DG-60 Acoustic Guitar:

                    I have played this guitar so much it needs to be refretted in first position. Great beginner guitar. Do yourself a favor though, throw some Martin SP strings on it and sand the bottom of the saddle to set it up right and it will play and sound far better. The neck on this guitar is nice. Very slim, with a very soft v shape. I taught myself to read music and play all the common open chords in the last year and a half. Works well for both strumming and fingerpicking. The downside is I have redressed the frets three times in first position and now I need a partial refret. The downside/upside is I can buy a new one for close to the price of a refret. Great guitar to learn on and one that is inexpensive enough to take anywhere with you and not worry too much about it due to the laminated top, back and sides. That said the downside is that The tone doesn't measure up to solid wood instruments, but I am totally satisfied for what I paid and I don't worry too much about loosening up the strings, putting it in a case and checking it with my baggage when flying.
