Having played the guitar for over 10 years and being a fan of Fender I was very interested to see what the new Squier SA105 was going to be like having heard it was going to be priced in at the entry level acoustics. A lot of people will snub their noses at Squier because it isn’t a “real” Fender. I can understand those comments but I think that is a naive way of thinking and the Squiers are great guitars and the SA105 proves this. It is an ideal guitar that a beginner can trust to help them progress to the next level.
This guitar has been modelled on the “classic” dreadnought shape and will give you a warm rounded tone created by the laminated spruce top and laminated back and sides. It houses a nato neck holding a rosewood fingerboard that your fingers will glide across in no time. It also has quality chrome tuning pegs to ensure full tuning control. The Natural finish of the guitar looks beautiful and you will instantly love this guitar as soon as you see it.
I think this guitar would be great if you were someone looking start the guitar or looking to pick one up again after not playing for a while. It would be great a second acoustic guitar that you would mess around on if you were more of a professional player that didn’t want to carry their top end acoustic here, there and everywhere. I personally like the feel of this guitar and the way it plays. It seems to rest nicely in my lap and my fingers can move swiftly across the fret board. It holds its tune extremely well so would make it easier for beginners to be playing and practicing rather than keep tuning.
This really is the perfect starter guitar that offers a great tone and playability that you would expect from something in a lot higher price bracket. The guitar will nest within you as you sit down to play or will sit gently against your ribs if you stand up. However you want to play, you will be amazed by the quality. With the Fender Squier brand you know you are going to get a quality made, durable instrument that is fit for its role.
