The FA-100 Fender Acoustic with Gig Bag offers great Fender sound and tremendous value to everyone. A world of acoustic enjoyment starts right here-a rich-sounding dreadnought acoustic guitar with a padded gig bag for protection and easy transport. Guitar features include a spruce top with X bracing for full and resonant sound, body binding, exclusive Fender headstock shape, Fender pickguard, smooth-playing 20-fret rosewood fingerboard, rosewood bridge with compensated saddle, forward strap button with internal block reinforcement, and chrome hardware.
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 a pleasingly dark look, solid strength, smooth feel and excellent tonal quality, rosewood is a longtime standard for crafting quality acoustic instrument bridges and fingerboards, from the mightiest jumbo guitar to the most diminutive ukulele.

I have been playing guitar for over 50 years and have played and owned some of the best acoustics on the market. I am totally taken back with the great quality,sound and playability of my new FA-100. This guitar is not just for beginners....it plays much better than 90% of the high end guitars that I have played over my lifetime. I have never taken the time to write a review with Amazon even though I have purchased many items through them over the years.....until now. This guitar was well worth my review. This was one of the best $99.00 I have ever spent and weather you are a beginner or experienced player on a budget (like me) you can't go wrong. Thank you Fender!!
I've been playing guitar for around 4 years, At first what caught my attention was a fender instrument for 99$, it is somewhat rare to find a quality brand for such low price, I read the only other review and have to say it is 100% accurate, the guitar comes ready to play right out of the box, be careful tuning newbies, it's WAY out of tune (at least for me); it sounds absolutely amazing. The strings are bit too thick for a starter, so I'd recommend switching those to some lighter ones if you are just starting out. I bought mine in sunburst, it's just my new babe, Best 100 bucks I've spent.
I normally don't write reviews, because other people normally are right on about the product (in this case a BEGINNER'S guitar). However I see reviews in which people say they've been playing for forty years, and this is their new favorite guitar and it's up there with thousand dollar guitars such as Martins or Gibsons. It most certainly does not. I ordered the guitar because I wanted a decent acoustic to play. It works for messing around with for a few minutes or so, but it is not a particularly great guitar. If you are halfway serious about guitar, I would recommend a cheap cort guitar. They seem to have much better tone and looks, but they are still just beginner guitars. I have a seagull entourage acoustic-electric and it is my baby. It has wonderful tone and looks, but is quite a bit pricier. The fender fa-100 is for beginners only. Do not believe the reviews that say "best guitar ever". These are unreliable due to severe inexperience, or they are placed by a payed reviewer or...
