Sound — 9
This guitar sounds like a good Acoustic guitar should sound. Although the strings don't really bend that well, overall it plays very smooth. I play a variety of music styles, ranging from Green Day to Mumford And Sons, and sometimes a bit of Tenacious D. This guitar can be even more versatile when plugged into an amplifier, I can add some subtile effects like reverb and chorus to my clean sound.
Overall Impression — 9
This guitar matches my playing skills very well, and produces the sound I like to hear. I learned playing the guitar on my first electric guitar (Cort G210), and play as much electric guitar as I play acoustic. If this guitar would be stolen, I'd buy a new one for sure. I will soon start recording guitar covers and upload them to youtube, so this new guitar with built-in preamp comes in handy. I strongly recommend this guitar to other players, who like playing modern, Acoustic songs. It's a very nice guitar for its price, and I hope it lasts a long time.
Reliability & Durability — 7
I have bought this guitar just recently, so I can't really judge about its durability. And I don't perform on real stages (yet) so I can't say much about this. Due to Mumford And Sons songs played in different tunings, I regularly retune my guitar. The first set of strings that were already on the guitar snapped (G-string) after a few retunings. So I already had to buy a new set. I already mentioned the pick guard coming loose a bit, and my tuners being a bit wobbly.
Action, Fit & Finish — 9
This guitar is really great for the price I have paid. There are just a little minor flaws. Some of the string tuners are a bit wobbly, and my pick guard is just glued on the body so it got a bit loose. The guitar came with a set of strap buttons, so I can play la Mumford And Sons with a Fender strap I bought along with the guitar.
Features — 8
Manufactured in China. Bought in Late 2010. Originated from the regular CD60 guitar, this one has a nice cutaway for reaching the high-pitched notes. With a great Sunburst top, this guitar looks fabulous. This Acoustic guitar comes with a built-in pre-amp and tuner. I also received a guitar cable with it, but I don't use it because it looks too cheap :)
