The FA-115 acoustic guitar offers great Fender sound and tremendous value to anyone looking to get their musical journey started on the right foot.
Spruce is the standard tonewood for acoustic guitar tops -- 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 or delicate fingerpicking.
Our most popular acoustic guitar shape, dreadnought guitars feature a deep body for balanced tone and superior low-end projection. They are an excellent choice for lead or rhythm work, and their rounded shoulders offer a comfortable feel for any player or performance.

Fender FA-115 acoustic guitar is an ideal entry-level instrument for beginners, along the lines of Fender FA-100, an earlier version of the same guitar that was discontinued. Fender FA-115 is a step up from Squier models like SA-150 or SA-100 -- easier to play, stays in tune better, more stable bridge -- but not quite on the level of Fender CD-60S, which features a solid top. The laminated top of the FA-115 leaves something to be desired from the standpoint of sound quality, but for beginners who aren't sure that guitar is the instrument for them, the price point is affordable. There are less expensive generic guitars out there, to be sure, but you're not likely to learn the instrument if you practice on a cheap instrument that sounds terrible and is hard to play because the action is too high and the strings never stay in tune. For a little more money than what you'd pay for a generic guitar, you can get a Fender FA-115 with proven Fender quality and then graduate to a higher-quality model like Fender CD-60S. Available in a few different color finishes besides black, this particular bundle includes everything you need to start playing right out of the box, including hard case, tuner, strap, strings, picks, and instructional materials. A less expensive version of the same bundle is available with gig bag rather than hard case.
