To enjoy the most soothing tone, there is no better choice than Squier SA-100 acoustic guitar. Constructed entirely with superior wood quality, the Squier SA-100 is one of the best beginner guitars out there.
With the dreadnought body, the Squier SA-100 does justice to its reputation. Due to some of the fine addition to the dreadnought and the overall construction; this particular guitar gives you the soothing tone that everyone loves which comes out naturally. The guitar comes with rosewood fingerboard containing 20 frets.

Although, there are plenty of guitars available in the same price range, but the kind of construction you get with the Fender Squier SA-100 acoustic guitar is just simply remarkable. One has to say that it is worth every penny. It offers the best quality for its price. The first thing to notice about this guitar is its finish, which is simply remarkable. It is hard to get that kind of neatness in such an affordable price.

What makes this guitar special? Well, the answer is it is multicultural nature. The thing that separates this guitar from others is, it is designed by Fender’s team of research and development based in Nashville and California but it is sent off to be constructed it China.

The most surprising thing of all is the sounding of the guitar, which is beautiful at low end as well as high end. The use of solid spruce top on the guitar enhances the sound as the guitar ages, so your experience with the Fender Squier SA-100 is only going to get better.

But that does not mean that the guitar doesn’t sound nice when it is brand new, the sound is equally soothing. The spruce top of Squier SA-100 acoustic guitar is laminated, but that does not mean that it has any sort of effect on the sound or outlook of the guitar by any means, it is brilliant. In fact it adds a little to the elegance and beauty of the instrument.

It might not be the lightest guitar out there but it is certainly not on the heavier side too. It is neither too heavy nor too light, but the good thing is, it is certainly not one of the fragile guitars, it feels very solid. The sound is as clean as it can get, even a beginner can bring out the head turning tone without putting in too much effort.

It is perhaps the best when compared with the competitors. The inclusion of electronic tuner is one of the best things about Fender Squier SA-100; even the beginners, with inexperienced finger picking skills, can now easily tune up and and play like a pro, keeping in mind that the dreadnought is full sized.

Undoubtedly, the kind of sound Fender Squier SA-100 acoustic guitar produces can be easily compared with the guitars in the price range of $1000. It is easy to fit this guitar in any basic dreadnought case.
