The Fender CT-60S Travel Acoustic Guitar is an affordable, portable, playable little beauty that is perfect for those who like their guitar to go where they go. If you're a younger player - or prefer a shorter-scale model -, then this is for you. If you're a bit more experienced, then you'll already know that Fender don't cut corners at any price, and for under £170 this is an astonishing bargain. Heading out to any festivals this year - then the CT-60S is a must-have!
New Travel body shape
Inspired by the proportions of the Auditorium body shape, the new Travel body shape is smaller in scale than other models to make it travel-friendly (the clue really is in the name). Don't be fooled though, the CT-60S boasts a generous dynamic range that guarantees you'll be heard. Whether you perform fingerstyle or with a pick, each and every note/chord/lick/riff will ring out with the utmost clarity.
The back and sides are built using laminated mahogany, and coupled with the travel body profile enables the CT-60S to produce a punchy midrange response. Thanks to the laminate, the body is afforded greater resilience when coping with changes in humidity and temperature - an essential characteristic for a portable guitar. The top is made from solid spruce, a highly resonant tonewood that projects the timbre with gusto. For such a small guitar, it boasts an impressive dynamic range, responding eloquently to both fingerstyle and flatpickers alike. Reinforcement is afforded to the top via scalloped X bracing, which prevents unwanted warping from affecting the soundboard over time.
Solid mahogany neck
Fitted to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which is shaped to Fender's 'Easy-to-Play' profile to establish a feeling of comfort along its entire length. Paired with the neck is a gorgeous rosewood fingerboard, which features rolled edges to reinforce playing comfort. At your disposal are 20 frets, which are decorated with 3mm pearloid acrylic dot inlays that act as a simple yet effective navigational aid.
The Fender CT-60S Travel Acoustic Guitar is equipped with finely appointed hardware setup, so that no matter where and when you feel like playing, you're always good to go. The headstock is home to steadfast chrome die-cast geared tuning machines, which uphold string integrity throughout each and every performance. At the top of the neck you'll find the creme plastic nut, which upholds string tension dutifully whilst its partnership with the rosewood bridge serves to optimise intonation and sustain.
