Straight up, I'm not a fan of Fender Acoustics... One day at one of my favorite guitar stores I was exiting and a sales person drew my attention to a line up of Fender acoustics and pointed out this little guitar. Before I knew it he had placed it in my hands. Feeling obligated to try it I formed a cord and started plucking notes. BLOWN AWAY! This lil guitar had a sweet voice and great separation.
I was given a price that included the case out the door and the deal was done. Fastest guitar purchase I ever made.
My intent in buying the guitar was to keep it in my living room handy to play when I was upstairs (not down in my studio where my other guitars live) and be able to take it out on the deck to play outside when I felt like it.
I love this guitar and am so pleased that the sales person at the music store had the foresight to toss it in my hands. Anyone that wants an extremely flexible, comfortable, beautiful sounding, causal or starter guitar, this is a hit.
Now that I've been introduced to a Fender acoustic that I was totally not expecting, I will have to keep my eye out their higher models.

This guitar is so awesome! I went to a music store and I was looking for Fender CD140SCE and they didn't have it. However, an employee was working on this one and after he was done, I took it and played it! It was amazing! I am collecting my money to buy this one.
I was completely speechless when after 3 months of wanting this guitar I went to a music store and played it. The sound is so crisp and beautiful. Of course the sound of a guitar is a personal preference but I wanted a very "bright" sounding guitar and as soon as I heard it I knew it was the one. I love the cutaway for songs that require me to play the higher frets. The pictures don't do it justice it's much more beautiful in person, very glossy. I also love that it has a pick-up so I can plug it in and play songs on Rocksmith with it. It also has a built-in tuner that isn't the most accurate, but does the job. All in all I have no regrets and I'm positive that I will come back to Fender if I purchase another guitar in the future.

This guitar has just blown me away in the short amount of time I have had it! Mine is even in all mahogany!!

Though I love my Strat; I bought this guitar for my quiet things. Its sound is nice, the guitar looks great. The same is true for its classy hard case and the wood Fender logo on it. I am not used to acoustic guitars, so I found it a little bit hard to play at first. But, I'm getting used to its high strings. The only thing to mark as non-comfortable is the battery place holder, it is a bit harder to insert the battery there. I'm enjoying it, and its price is great.

Well I started off with my first acoustic, the Fender CD60, which was incredibly well priced and had monstrous tone. Also you didn't have to be careful with it, you could knock it around and it'd be fine. I ended up selling the CD60 in exchange for the slightly more expensive "ce" version., to avoid having to buy preamps and piezo pickups and whatnot myself. Now whilst this unplugged guitar is still absolutely brilliant, (especially with the inclusion of the cutaway which I believe should be standard on the CD60 model too), within a few months of owning it the piezo pickup had come loose despite extensively more care being taken with it. This caused horrible string buzz on the G string and I had to get it repaired, the local luthier charging me around £40 for the work. Personally I believe the best solution is to buy a standard cd60 and if possible, install your own electronics and microphones, however this guitar is still beautiful and works fine now post repair.

After borrowing some acoustic guitars to start playing guitar, I decided to buy my first guitar. The CD60-CE looks absolutely great, but that isn't the only thing that matters. The cutaway is looks great and is functional as well. The mahogany is well furnished, nice and shiny.
Well, enough about the looks. As I said, I borrowed some other guitars to play guitar until I bought my own. What a surprise when I started playing the CD60-CE! The .012-strings sound very nice and are easy to play. Thinner strings (e.g. .010) could be fitted for more flexibility, but I think that makes the guitar sound too shrill.
The Fishman pickup works fine, although the built-in tuner is not very precise.
The CD60-CE is a great guitar with a great value for money!
