Overview

No matter what kind of music you want to play, from rock to alternative to country and more, the acoustic guitar is the centerpiece of songwriting for contemporary music. From playing along with your favorite songs to getting good enough to write your own, the FA-100 acoustic guitar is a solid choice to start on, and this one comes, with a padded gig bag for transport and storage. Even with its low price, this FA-100 Acoustic is a fine starter instrument with a spruce top and a rosewood fingerboard that provide a natural tone to inspire you to start playing and keep at it for years to come.

Top wood
Spruce is the standard tonewood for fashioning the tops of modern 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.

Bridge and Fingerboard
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 went in with the intent to buy the Epiphone PR-150. After pulling a few from the boxes, there were issues with both. Inconsistent with all 3. Then the employee recommended the FA-100. First one out of the box was in great condition and sounded great. I jammed on it all day and had no issues with tuning. There was an occasion buzz, but it's probably operator error.

Check out another review by Dan to know that I'm not crazy on this. At the time of purchase (12/20/2017) the item description said that this guitar came with a gig bag, tuner and neck strap. Only the guitar and the tuner were in the box. I work in a public school music class and bought 3 of these for my students. All 3 were the same - no tuner or neck strap.

In the other hand, the guitars themselves are great for beginners and are sturdy enough for daily classroom use. They sound pretty good and are comfortable for middle schoolers.

    Only included guitar and gig bag

    About Me Novice

    Comments about Fender FA-100 Acoustic Guitar with Gig Bag v2:

    Even though the description states, "It includes a Fender dreadnought acoustic guitar, along with a padded gig bag, electronic tuner, guitar strap and picks." It only comes with the guitar and gig bag. The gig bag is cheap, and has no pockets for accessories. This was a Christmas present for a family member, since Guitar Center could not ship me the accessories fast enough, they issued me a partial refund. I am not a guitar player myself, but the strings seemed very hard to press down... maybe the action is a little high. The fret wires could also be a little smoother on the sides. I guess this is to be expected with a guitar at this price.

        Comments about Fender FA-100 Acoustic Guitar with Gig Bag v2:

        My Son decided he wants to play guitar. I didn't want spend alot until I know he will try to learn and practice. I purchased this guitar for him to start. Being a fender I hoped this would be suitable for a beginner. So far he is satisfied. Looks and sounds good and we haven't times yet. Hopefully wenwill be shopping for a better one if need be in a couple years. I don't know much about guitars but I would recommend this for anyone looking begin.

              Picked this guitar up for taking camping and wow what a horrible thing it is! The frets stick out and are very sharp you can easily cut yourself on them. Never stays in tune for more than a few min's, to be fare I expected that at this price point but I was hoping being a Fender and all it would impress me......it didn't. Rule #1 that yes even a seasoned player like me should know TRY B4 YOU BUY. Fender really dropped the ball on this one this guitar would make any new player never want to pick up a guitar again.
