Pros

Includes essential accessories - tuner, picks, gig bag, stand, spare strings and instructional DVD

1 agrees

Great build quality for this price range - solid spruce top for clear resonant sound and rosewood bridge/fingerboard for consistent intonation

Cons

Lack of neck adjustment results in fixed-action string height - may cause fret buzz for some users

2 agree

Stock strings are rather heavy - will likely need to be changed to a light gauge for beginners

2 agree

Chinese construction implies minimal Fender quality control compared to American/Mexican/Japanese models

2 agree

Instructional DVD leaves much to be desired - features minimal instruction and leaves out imperative beginner tips including tuning and fingering styles

1 agrees

Included gig bag is thin/sparsely padded - heightens likelihood of damage
