The search for a beginner’s acoustic guitar that matches your price range and expectations can be long and arduous but with this awesome package from Fender, that search may be over. Introducing, the Fender CD-60 Acoustic Guitar Pack.
Rather than just supplying a guitar on its own and leaving you with the confusion of deciding on an array of accessories that you need, Fender have taken out the guess work with this pack. Included are: a CD-60 dreadnought acoustic guitar, electronic tuner, extra set of strings, and a selection of plectrums, which gives you all the accessories you need for at-home practice.
Powerful Dreadnought Body
The star of the show here is, of course, the Fender CD 60; a dreadnought-shaped acoustic guitar. The most popular body shape available, the dreadnought shape has become so loved because its combination of comfortable playability and versatile tone, as it is capable of holding its own in most musical styles, making it the perfect acoustic guitar type to learn on.
It’s the guitar’s size, providing a balance of robust bass and clear mids, which gives this body type its enormous projection and power. This gives you the capability to be heard whether you’re strumming or flatpicking and playing with force or with a gentler touch.
With the construction of acoustic guitars, the wood types used are just as important as the body shape that they are carved to. The Fender CD60 Acoustic Guitar pays attention to this with a classic pairing of a spruce top and mahogany back and sides.
This pairing is deemed a classic as the two are often put together as they complement each other’s tonal capabilities; creating a harmonious unison. Spruce is known for its clarity, brightness and expansive dynamic range, while mahogany is warmer and brings emphasis to the mid-range.
Ensuring the strength of the guitar’s top, the Fender CD-60 is equipped with a scalloped X-bracing. Although strengthening, this has been scalloped to allow the top to resonate more freely; allowing the spruce to produce a better tone and more projection.
Blending in well with the Black gloss polyurethane finish of the guitar is a black pickguard, while the white pearloid acrylic rosette design becomes a focus point that offsets the design.
Making up the Scale Length
The Fender CD-60 Acoustic Guitar has a scale length of 25.3”, which is made up of a nato neck sandwiched between a Graph Tech NuBone nut with a width of 1.69” and a rosewood bridge with a compensated Graphtech Nubone saddle. Making up the playing surface of the guitar is a rosewood fingerboard with 20 frets and pearloid dot inlays, while the headstock is set up with die-cast tuners.
