SOLID SPRUCE TOP
Spruce is the standard modern tonewood for fashioning the tops of acoustic guitars and other acoustic instruments -- few woods can beat its strength, brightness and dynamic range, and it responds well to any acoustic playing style, from hard strumming to fast flatpicking to delicate fingerpicking.

Fender CD-60S is a step up from the more affordable FA-125CE acoustic-electric model. Available in a few different colors, it features a solid top, which adds to the cost but greatly improves the sound quality of the instrument. If you're a beginner who isn't sure whether guitar is the instrument for you, the FA-125CE model is a safer investment, but if you're looking to make a investment in an instrument that is well constructed and easy to play, CD-60S is a better long-term investment that rewards you with better sound quality. This particular bundle includes everything you need to start playing right out of the box, including a hard case, tuner, strap, strings, picks, and instructional materials. A more affordable version of the same bundle is available with gig bag rather than hard case.
Guitar sounds great and plays great. Plays noticeably louder and sharper than my other laminate top dreadnought,
