Sound — 8
Compared to other guitars in it's price range, which is how I'm grading it, the Fender is a good pick. It suit's my music style pretty well. I usually play grunge, Indie, alternative, post-punk, metal, and punk. When I use this Acoustic it is used mainly for slide or something like the Violent Femmes. The guitar plays with a very bright and full tone; the notes come out clear and it's not muddy sounding. My only complaint is that it sounds really bad when bronze strings are being used, but that's common and can easily be changed.
Overall Impression — 9
The Fender CD60 fit's my music styles(which I mentioned in the second paragraph). I have been playing guitar for about 6 years, and I own multiple other guitars that are all in my profile. If this guitar was stolen, I would be pretty pissed, but I would probably save up for a more advanced Acoustic. I love that it is durable, has a beautiful finish, and suit's most of my music styles, I can't really think of anything I dislike. It's perfect for playing for a small gig, or a jam session. I wish it dispensed cotton candy, but that's a long way from now.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar can very well withstand a Live gig. It's been thrown, messed with by audience members, and covered in birthday cake and beer, yet it's still in one piece. But, I recommend that you bring a back up guitar because that's just common knowledge. The strap buttons are very solid, and they aren't even close to being loose yet. The sunburst finish is very strong, It withstood being smacked against a table and falling onto a sidewalk, and didn't start becoming damaged until it was taken to a large gig.
Action, Fit & Finish — 9
When I first got the guitar, the action needed to be adjusted because it was too high, and it buzzed if you played anything other than a light strum, but that's not really a big deal. The finish was very smooth and shiny. For the four years I've had this guitar, I've never had a problem with the tuners, unlike some other Fender acoustics... The frets were set properly and did not cut me or anything.

My Fender CD-60 was made in China, in 2006. Like everyone else has said, it has 20 frets, 25.5" scale, nato neck, with sonokeling fingerboard, and the bridge is Sonokeling with Compensated Saddle. The finish is Sunburst Gloss Polyurethane Finish. The body is Fender Style Dreadnought. The guitar features Dual Action Truss Rod, Black Pickguard, Scalloped X Bracing, Dot Position Inlays, Compensated Urea Saddle, and a Gold Silkscreened Fender Logo. When I bought it, the guitar came with a hardshell case with the Fender logo on it.
