Comments about Fender CB-60SCE Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar:
I gave this Fender CB-60SCE A/E Bass Guitar the full 5 star rating because I really was blown away by the overall quality, build, sound and electronics of this instrument. For a "Budget" A/E bass it surpassed my expectations. The Natural finish is just plain old school awesome. Nice wood pattern on the top and the sides and back are gorgeous. The top strap button is located on the upper part of the body enabling great balance when playing and convenience of not caring what size the end of your strap may be. I am not a fan of those located on the bottom of the neck joint area. The 5 pound weight is very comfortable on my worn out back. The 32" scale is comfortable and fits right in between the traditional 34" scale and the short scale 30". So transitioning either up or down is no stretch.
The sound unplugged really surprised me. The acoustic sound was great, with plenty of volume when asked for, when played with fingers, felt pick, rubber pick, and traditional guitar pick. It should hold its own in an acoustic jam, especially if played with a traditional pick. For stock strings I was amazed at the sound quality up and down the neck.
Plugged in is where I was really surprised and amazed. Prior to this instrument I had tried basses by Ibanez, Dean and Taylor. They each had their strong points, but something just didn't fit with me on each. The Ibanez body (AEB) was just so big it was uncomfortable. The same with the Dean, coupled with poor electronics. The Baby Taylor was nice, but the acoustic sound was just a little weak for my tastes. But this Fender plugged in really sold me. The pickup accurately translates the acoustic sound through my Fender Rumble practice amp. The volume knob is good, but the bass and treble controls is what sets the Fender CB-60SCE apart for all the others I tried. Both are very responsive and offer a great blend of sound. Much more than I was expecting at this price point.
Fender Kingman Bass Case is a close fit!
