The first acoustic guitar I purchased was the SA-100. It's a Squier by Fender.

This full sized dreadnought has amazing sound and craftsmanship for the price. It really holds up. With some bright bronze strings you can get some big, beautiful sounds. It also does very well in alternate tunings and I'm in alt tunings a lot.

I recommend this guitar.
Cool. I'm partial to the Takamine Jasmine line. It's always nice to hear about dirt-cheap guitars that work well.
I just recently heard about Takamine.

Yeah. The SA-100 is great. I will never stop playing it, no matter what else I get. You know how special that first can be anyway.
