New to Acoustic Guitar? Trust Fender to Get You Started RightThe world of acoustic guitars is enormous, and if you're unsure of where to begin before finding that lifelong acoustic companion, then the Fender FA100 Dreadnought acoustic guitar is the perfect place to start. This baby features an iconic dreadnought body shape with a spruce top and agathis back and sides, a smooth rosewood fingerboard with dot position inlays, 20 frets with close action, a comfortable C-shaped agathis neck, attractive chrome hardware, a rosewood bridge and a compensated bone saddle. Let your acoustic journey begin with this affordable Fender -- the FA100's warm, rich, and full-bodied tone is sure to motivate you.
Iconic Dreadnought Body ShapeAcoustic guitars wouldn't be anything near what they are today without the dreadnought body design. Originally conceived in the early 20th century, the dreadnought shape, with its squared shoulders and a large resonant chamber, was soon copied by many manufacturers and quickly came to be recognized as one of the most ubiquitous body shapes in the world of acoustic guitars. Initially almost exclusively used by folk players, today, this infamous shape can be seen making sonic waves in just about any genre or style.
The Tonal Advantages of Spruce and AgathisThe body of your Fender FA100 Dreadnought guitar is comprised of a spruce top and agathis back and sides. Spruce is a strong and elastic wood that holds up well to atmospheric changes and the everyday battle scars known to regularly gigging musicians. It adds a crisp and articulate color to your notes. Agathis, on the other hand, brings about a similar resonance to mahogany bodies -- it will focus more on your mid and lower frequencies for a dark and rich sound.
C-Shaped Laminated Agathis NeckYour hand will love the sturdy yet comfy feel of this guitar's C-shaped agathis neck. Agathis adds a hefty amount of sustain to each note you play, and this neck's smooth rosewood fingerboard and 20 frets play like a dream. If you've never owned an acoustic guitar before, then this is the perfect axe to get you started.
Rosewood Bridge and Synthetic Bone NutHolding your strings down is the FA100's reliable rosewood bridge and compensated bone saddle. It's the bridge that assures your notes will sustain for longer periods of time, and maintain their intonation over longer sessions of strumming. This bridge works together with your FA100 dreadnought's synthetic bone nut to bring you tight action, comfortable playability, and all-around solid stability. It all adds up to a stellar choice for your first acoustic guitar!
