Free Tools Available to All Guitarists
Most manufacturers sell the dream of playing guitar, but offer no additional resources after your initial purchase. Here at Fender we believe that it is imperative to help nurture a beginner players desire to learn.
Playing guitar can be an extremely rewarding experience. It teaches discipline, coordination, emotional expression, subconscious mathematical calculation, and focus. However the journey to learning guitar can be difficult, and can lead to first time players quitting due to frustration.
This is why Fender has begun to include a number of free resources to beginner guitarists. The Fender website and Fender University offer a wide variety of free tutorials, Q&A, and video lessons to help remove some of the mystery and frustration that beginning guitarists encounter.
Fender also has a free tuning app (Fender Tune) for ios devices which not only acts as a tuner, but will also help you learn how to tune your instrument and provide pointers for any player.
Whether your goal is to become a rock star or learn a few songs for the campfire, Fender believes it is our responsibility to help guide you on your journey.

Update: After playing this for three months, some advice which probably echos what others have said:
Strings, Action, Setup: Finally took mine to a local music store. They greatly improved the action level (that is, getting the strings lower to the fretboard). That required quite a bit of saddle height adjustment. Apparently, FA-100s have rather wide variability coming from the factory when it comes to action level. Also, they replaced the stock medium gauge strings with light gauge strings. Both things dramatically improved playability - a big deal for a beginner like myself. Now my chords sound much better, and some chords which I found nearly impossible with the stock setup are much more achievable.
Aesthetics: Finish on the body is very good. Finish on the neck is adequate at a distance but rather poor up close. In this price range, I think that's perfectly acceptable.
Lastly, the gig bag is pretty weak. It barely gets the job done. Plan to replace with inexpensive hard shell soon.
As soon as it came, I fell in love! I tuned it up (came with strings loosened for shipping) and started picking. The sound is warm, clear, and surprisingly good considering the price I paid. The finish is flawless (went with all black), the strings are good enough for what I'm doing (swithing to Ernie Ball once these run their course), and it feels like a much better guitar than I paid for. I even had my instrument-afficianado brother play and he was very impressed with the quality and said I had gotten a great guitar. The gig bag included is a bit thin, but does exactly what I assumed it would. I have had no problems with the tuner that came included. It came with extra strings and a couple picks.
Conclusion: I want to say that this is a good beginner's guitar, but that would be a disservice to this instrument. It fits nicely next to my Ibanez RG450 and 1988 Takamine. Not to mention, it says Fender on the head! So instead of (a perceived) lesser quality Squire in the company of my other instruments, I have a respected brand that does not seem like it doesn't belong. Whether you're looking for a beginning instrument or are a veteran musician looking to add to their collection, buy this guitar! You won't regret it.
