Whether you’re completely new to the instrument or have years of experience under your fingertips, you’ll fall in love with the superb CN-60S.
Concert body profile
Adopting the slender concert body profile, the CN-60S offers a heavenly playability. Lightweight, comfortable, and responsive, this is a guitar that is both accommodating and resilient. Though it may be smaller in form, it is built with that solid Fender reliability, so you can rest assured that nothing has been spared to ensure that the CN-60S is a joy to perform with. Whether you prefer fingerstyle or flatpicking, you’ll fingers will adore the familiarity of this model.
The back and sides are built using laminated mahogany, which partners with the concert body shape to establish a robust midrange tonal foundation. Thanks to the laminate, the body is afforded increased resilience when coping with changes in humidity and temperature. The top is made from solid spruce, which is the perfect soundboard thanks to its highly resonant characteristic. Though it may be small, this acoustic can hold its own when used in a solo performance setting, or as part of an ensemble. 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 CN-60S Classic Design Acoustic Guitar is equipped with finely appointed hardware, so that no matter where and when you feel like playing, you’re always good to go. The headstock is home to 3-in-line tuning machines with amber pearloid buttons, which uphold string integrity throughout each and every performance. At the top of the neck you’ll find the plastic nut, which upholds string tension dutifully whilst its partnership with the rosewood bridge serves to optimise intonation and sustain.
