Fender CC 60SCE Review – Concert Guitar

Upgrading to a new level requires not only a lot of skill, but a decent guitar as well. That`s where Fender`s production comes in handy. Guitars of this company are produced for players of any level of skill.

Fender Guitars

I don`t know whether Fender expected that his production will be that successful when he was designing the first Precision Bass in his basement, but when this model started selling really nicely, the company started announcing dozens of new guitars. This tendency lasted for a long time, so hundreds of new guitars for players of any skill levels appeared. Amongst them was the concert Guitar Fender CC 60SCE that we will discuss today.

Technical Parameters

The first thing we are discussing is the physical side of this guitar. The material it is built of, the dimensions that determine how nicely the guitar will sit in your hands and the strings, which matter a lot in terms of playability and sound quality.

MaterialThe guitar has mahogany back and sides, rosewood fingerboard and solid spruce top. These three materials are so to say the classic in guitar building. They are durable, nice sitting and rather light-weighed.
DimensionsThis is a concert-sized guitar (a bit smaller than regular one). Its` dimensions are 18 * 43.5 * 6.5 inches (which is 457 * 1105 * 165 in millimeters). The guitar will be easy to play for any player, who is older than 16 years old. On the other hand, young beginners, ladies and simply the ones with small hands will not be able to handle Fender CC 60SCE that easy.
StringsGuitar has polyurethane strings, which are the balanced middle between hard metal strings and soft nylon. Although they are easier to play and stay tuned for rather long time, there are no outstanding pros and cons. You`ll probably want to replace the basic strings later on.

Now, that all the basic information has been mentioned, I`d like to point out some special features of this guitar. Here they are:

  • The guitar has acoustic cutaway shape. Cutaway means that access to the upper frets will be easier, while concert size makes it a bit easier to carry and handle this exact model.
  • Fender CC 60SCE has built-in tuner and on-board electronics. The guitar will be a perfect choice for the beginners and advanced players who are ready to start some scenic performances.
  • The built-in “easy-to-play” fingerboard edges. The neck is designed in such a way, that playing a guitar feels much easier.

All these factors together combined in one guitar, make Fender CC 60SCE a perfect choice for beginners, who already start feeling confidence and want to start playing at public. The easy-to-handle electronics in combination with reliable body are soooo attractive.

Decent Analogues

Although this guitar is undoubtedly great, there are other models worth attention in this price category as well.

Worthy Concert Guitars
Fender CC60SThis model can be called a smaller sister in the Fender concert family. There are three main differences between this one and CC 60SCE. First, this one is strictly acoustic guitar, it has no built-in electronics and no opportunity to plug-in. Second, this guitar has no cutaway, which might make the playing process a little inconvenient. And the last, but not the least, it has a great sunburst design.
I think, I should say that this guitar is not worth than its` electro-acoustic analogue, it`s just been created with different purpose.
Fender T-Bucket 300T-Bucket 300 is a guitar for advanced players. It has a bit different body material and electronics that it is harder to work with. There is a great compensation though – the design. It is the best one I`ve seen so far.
Vangoa-41 Electric-Acoustic CutawayThis is a budget model. It is easy to maintain and play, but, of course, due to budget limitations engineers needed to sacrifice some durability and overall quality. This is still a decent pick, if you are having money issues.

Finding a decent model of an electro-acoustic guitar isn`t really a hard task. There are dozens of such guitars on market, so pick the one you can afford and start learning and improving your skills.

Conclusion

Here is what you need to remember about electro-acoustic guitars and Fender CC 60SCE.

  • Electro-acoustic guitars are a great upgrade from acoustic versions for the beginners.  They are suitable for public scene performances.
  • Fender`s CC 60SCE is one of the best electro-acoustic guitars for the developing players.
  • There are other guitars worth considering in different price categories.

This was all you needed to know about the electro-acoustic guitars on this level. Choose one and start practicing as soon as you can. Later you`ll learn more information, but on this stage practicing is much more important. Good luck.
