Fender CD-60 V3 6-String Acoustic Guitar
The Fender CD-60 V3 appeared on our recommended list for Acoustic Guitars Under $200 from August 2021 until March 2022 when in was out-ranked by the Yamaha F325D.
The CD-60 V3 is the third iteration of Fender's popular entry-level acoustic guitar, carrying over much of the same features that made it popular, while introducing some design improvements.
This latest version features scalloped "X"-bracing support and Graph Tech Nubone nut and saddle.
Given its affordable price, it comes with specs that you expect from entry-level acoustics, having a laminate spruce top, and laminate mahogany for the back and sides. Thankfully, this configuration is enhanced by the scalloped X bracing which improves resonance.
Other features include having a C-shape mahogany neck and 20-fret walnut fingerboard that follows conventional dreadnought specs.
Finally, it ships with a hard case, which many owners appreciate.
