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.
With it's comfortably rolled fingerboard edges, this instrument's neck creates an incredibly comfortable fret-hand feel that's ideal for beginning players or experienced pros alike.

First guitar I bought for my son. Really happy with the sound and ease of playing. Has good depth and volume.Planning to buy another for myself.
The guitar came delivered, with everything included as advertised, and more. It was boxed and shipped with the guitar inside the case and also, to my surprise, in a gig bag. The accessories, except for the DVD and hard shell case, are all Fender branded. It looks to me like kit is repackaged from the Fender CD-60S Beginner Dreadnought Guitar Pack, Natural with Gig Bag, Strap, Picks, Strings, etc. with the addition of a perfectly snug fitting case which Probably retails just under $100. The guitar came very well set up, maybe the action is a tiny bit low for my taste, but no buzz on any fret. It is an easy player and comfortable in my hands, no sharp frets. Much better quality than I expected and maybe a little plain looking, but at first sight I thought to my self, that is one beautiful looking guitar. I still think that every time I go to play it. This is the kind of guitar that entices me to practice and play more. The sound is clean, clear and projects loudly enough. For a beginner, it's a can't miss instrument for an affordable price. It holds tune well after a rigorous practice session sometimes even with a capo has been used. There is no slippage or binding up in the tuners. Great value. I am 100% satisfied after the short couple of weeks I have owned it. Austin Bazaar customer service was pleasant and helpful, I called with a few questions before purchase and they were all cheerfully and accurately answered. The product was well packaged and delivery was two days earlier than promised. Yes, I gave it 5 stars only because there wasn't a plus option. A true pleasure doing business with Austin Bazaar.
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.
