Its not fair to suggest that all classical guitars are unplayable by beginners, but its not entirely false either.
The surprise of many when picking up their first guitar bought at a boot sale by uncle Ted only to find the neck is so wide you can barely hold it.
More than one budding musician has not followed through with their passion for music due to this first hurdle.
Aware of this Fender must be as the CN60s is everything a beautifully made classical guitar should be and none of the things it shouldn’t.
Fender say it best … “The Classic Design CN models combine the easy playability and distinct tone of nylon strings with the comfort of steel-string spacing.
We’ve replaced the typically wide necks normally found on classical guitars with the same easy-playing neck profile found on all other Classic Design models”
With a solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides and rolled fingerboard edges this guitar sounds lovely and plays like a dream!
