Fender Acoustic Guitars: DG60

by Guitar Guru

”Sturdy, Cheap Guitar That Plays Great”

The Fender DG60 Acoustic Guitar is an interesting mix; you get a dreadnought style guitar, whose size and shape calls for the big, deep sound that is a signature trait of the dreadnought. Yet the laminated spruce top plus the laminated mahogany sides combine to create a very bright tone whose notes are so clear that they are almost strident. Looking for a sturdy, inexpensive, all-laminate guitar for travelling gigs? This is the perfect guitar!

This almost over-bright tone can be tempered a bit if you use the DG60 for fingerstyle playing, and the polyurethane glass finish makes this a very sleek look that is very attractive both on and off stage. At just ~$159 the DG60 comes at a price that is very attractive indeed.

You can compare the DG60 with the guitar that comes with the Epiphone AJ-220ST Solid Top Acoustic Guitar Pack. While the AJ-220ST is an Advanced Jumbo, you do get a solid top acoustic guitar (as well as a built-in tuner and a wall hanger to display your instrument) that has a deeper, more full-bodied sound for about $40 more. With the DG60, however, you get the Fender name and an instrument that will look as good on your wall as it sounds as you play.

This Ain't No Stratocaster!
by: Graham (Edmonton Ab Canada)

Mom always told me if I didn't have anything nice to say, to say nothing at all. A Fender acoustic is ok...better than NO guitar...but truthfully, I'm not fond of Fender acoustics.

The Stratocaster is peerless. The Telecaster is also a fine guitar, but old Leo Fender was not and is not known for acoustics. Almost any is as good, I feel, and most are better.
