Fender redesigned their CD-60S Classic Design Series acoustic guitar with upgraded features, including a solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, a mahogany neck with a comfortable Easy-to-Play profile, and a smooth rosewood fingerboard with rolled edges. This instrument's large dreadnought body size and classic tonewoods deliver a huge, full-bodied sound with ample projection for vocal accompaniment, solo work, and many other "unplugged" applications. The instructors at Sweetwater's Academy of Music often recommend Fender Classic Design guitars such as the CD-60S to their beginning as well as intermediate students, because they offer a combination of quality, playability, looks, and value that can't be beaten.
The bright, responsive tone of a solid spruce top makes the Fender CD-60S project really well. In combination with the guitar's laminate mahogany back and sides, the CD-60S sings with a clear attack and warmth that will only get better with age. The guitar is also ready for any playing style - aggressive strumming, flat picking, or fingerpicking - thanks to its Easy-to-Play neck and the rolled edges of its rosewood fingerboard.
