            This guitar was ready to play right out of the box and was in perfect condition. I've never played guitar prior to purchasing this one and so far, I am pleased with my selection.

              Comments about Fender DG-60 Acoustic Guitar:

              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.

              I have been playing for a very long time and it was time to purchase my son his first guitar. After playing custom acoustic's all my life, I did not expect this. Great feel and the tone for a entry level guitar is very very good. I cant wait to see his face when he plays this for the first time.

                    I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my oldest daughter. She begins lessons in a couple of weeks so I haven't heard it played yet, but it is beautiful and her guitar teacher says it's a great guitar. Very reasonably priced!

                            Like another reviewer, I was in the store just looking, no plans to buy, and I saw this nice-looking sunburst Fender acoustic, tried it out, couldn't believe how it sounded and played, tried some more expensive guitars to see if they sounded and played as well (they didn't), and walked out with my new Fender DG60. I picked a diamond in the garden of cheap guitars. It's nice to see these are available again.
