It's the third blog installment (blog-stallment?) for the fast-approaching holidays, and I'd like to highlight some sweet deals on cool acoustics. Here are a couple of shop favorites that are consistently popular gifts for the ol' Yuletide...
Fender CD-60's ($179.99 as is OR $229.99 with hard case):
This is one is definitely a favorite here at the shop for a couple of reaons. Firstly, that Fender has gotten notoriously good at making inexpensive acoustics that sound great! We have been consistently impressed with the obvious quality of the Fender CD-60 dreadnoughts, and so have many of our customers! Featuring sturdy laminate spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and a genuine Graph Tech "NuBone" nut, these things actually sound pretty darn killer for being less than 200 bucks. Not to mention, they come in different flavors, including the newest all mahogany version which sounds as tasty as it looks.
For $179.99, you can pick up the guitar as is but we can also do a cool deal in which you get a sweet Fender hard shell case for another fifty bucks. Seeing as how most hard cases start at around $80, you've got yourself a nice lil' bargain. The CD-60's are great guitars that we proudly stand by here at the shop and we recommend picking one up for the musician on your list.
Up next, a big deal in a small size...
Fender MA-1 3/4 Acoustic ($139.99):
We've found the Fender MA-1 to be a great gift guitar (for the season and year round) as well as a pretty spiffy little player. Whether you've got a youngster in your life looking to start playing (not to mention, start playing with something GOOD...not just a First Act) or a seasoned player looking to add a new character to their arsenal or have something sturdy and portable to take on the road, these guitars pack quite a bit of sound into a small frame. This has consistently been a popular choice for holiday shoppers and we've had nothing but great feedback from long-time players to beginners alike. The MA-1 features agathis top with sapele back and sides, a classy satin finish making the neck particular fast and user friendly, and is a comfortably small size for anyone and everyone. A great parlor guitar to add to a loved ones collection or a sweet beginning guitar with professional quality and tone. Come by this Christmas and check it out!
Stay tuned for more holiday deals in the next week or so.
Stay excellent and have a great holiday season!
