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.

Holds tune, sounds great, and is relatively easy to play.

(edit) I like it enough that I bought a second one, it should be here tomorrow.

Out of the box, the action is a little high, but not horrible - I'd say approaching 0.12 inches at the 12th fret (should be about 0.9). - you can get this fixed at your local luthier for about $50 - probably worth the spend, because the construction is otherwise pretty solid. The intonation is good, compensated saddle for the win. With a proper setup and a little care, this guitar should last a long time.

At first glance, the finish is great, but a keen eye can pick out imperfections - the rosette is a decal, there are buff marks (easily fixed), the pick guard doesn't quite match the rosette, and the bridge could use some oil. From 5 feet away, though, it's a very nice looking guitar. (edit) The second one is much nicer, aesthetically speaking.

Overall, for a beater or a beginner guitar, it's a great value.

(edit)
Over 2 weeks in, I'm still really enjoying this guitar. It gets at least an hour a day of use. I'm still on the factory strings, but I suspect I will be switching to some mediums in the next week or so. It's holding tune quite well, I don't think I touched the tuning machines at all this week.

I want to amend my previous about proper setup - you wouldn't buy a car and not adjust the seats, the mirrors, or the tilt steering column - guitars are much the same. You can't buy a guitar and expect it to be perfect out of the box, especially when we're talking an economy model purchased online, such as this. And, you can tweak it yourself, if you know what you're doing - paying a luthier is just a suggestion.

Because the cheap plastic saddle bridge deformed and yielded on *first* tuning. A complete guitar neophyte, I was obliged on the day of receiving this product to go out and buy a new saddle bridge, and following Internet videos, sand it down to optimal height and replace the broken part. In the process, one of the strings broke during rewinding and following Internet videos again, I had to replace the strings.

Normally, a defective product like this would receive just 1 star, but I feel the situation forced me to learn more about guitars (different string types, height of guitar action, things to tighten on the pegs, servicing and care, etc.), so for this learning experience I've upped this to 3 stars. In the process, I have a better, harder saddle bridge which brings out the multi-string resonances, and lighter strings set at a more playable height. All this before the second day, and knowing but three chords.

So I have mixed feelings. The product should not have required maintenance on the first day, but it did, and I'm more knowledgeable for it.

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 Fender themselves. The fa-100 is what I would call a wall-mart guitar. A guitar for those unsure if they will continue to play or not after their first couple of months. If you are really into fender and want one, go buy a classic vibe series electric or a cd-60 acoustic at minimum.
