The Fender CD-60SCE Classic Design Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural is an excellent model for those who are beginning their music career, intermediate players, and those with experience who want a reliable and responsive acoustic guitar. Shaped with comfort at its heart and equipped with an electronics system that allows it to be amplified, the CD-60SCE is a fantastic model from a heavyweight in the industry.
Lightweight dreadnought body
The CD-60SCE is shaped to a single-cutaway dreadnought body profile, which allows the highest frets to be reached with the greatest of ease. The dreadnought is favoured by many for its ability to generate a stirring energy with a considerable output, whilst retaining a freedom of movement that is more accommodating than a larger jumbo model. Whether you're honing your skills or tearing through energetic sets, the CD-60SCE is a rewarding partner.
The back and sides are crafted using a popular tonewood, mahogany. Noted for its impressive mid-range character infused with warmth, mahogany delivers a resounding output with enviable sustain. Paired with this is a glorious solid spruce top, which is reinforced using scalloped "X" bracing to optimise resonance whilst preventing unwanted buckling or warping.
Durable mahogany neck
Joined to the body is a durable mahogany neck, which reinforces the reassuringly sturdy construction of the CD-60SCE. The generous 25.3--inch scale length promotes a consistent feel across the strings, whilst the Fender 'Easy-to-Play' shape with rolled fingerboard edges maximises playing comfort with single-ply binding adds a luxurious aesthetic touch. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are decorated with 3mm pearloid dot position inlays to guide your way.
Fishman CD preamp system
Fender has equipped the CD-60SCE with Fishman's CD side-mounted preamp system. Whether you're amplifying your signal for the stage, hitting the studio, or jamming with friends, the onboard electronics allows you to be heard, whilst retaining the crisp acoustic timbre. The control layout is very simple to use but offers powerful tone control if you want to affect any changes. The options available to you are: Volume, Bass, and Treble. A useful built-in tuner keeps you on the right track, and a handy battery indicator light lets you know when you're ready for a change.
The headstock is home to chrome die-cast tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with dutiful precision throughout the most demanding of performances. The body is equipped with a rosewood bridge, which anchors each string supportively to guarantee intonation and sustain remain on point - white bridge pins with black dots complement the natural finish in understated fashion. The chrome hardware finish and black pickguard round up the finishing touches. Each model is strung with Fender Dura-Tone coated 80/20 bronze strings to get you off to a flying start.
