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.

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.

Stick with a CD60

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!
