Fender Squier SA-150 Black, Classical Guitar


In terms of tonal quality and warmth, it struggles to compete with something in the higher price ranges, however the SA-150N still offers a very acceptable sound – it’s clear and mellow, with good projection. Perhaps a more experienced player would find it a little flat, but it delivers exactly what a beginner needs in terms of tone and volume.


Body And Neck

The SA-150N has plenty going for it in the looks department. It features a full-size classical body made entirely out of laminated wood, sporting a traditional mahogany laminate on the back and sides, with the lesser known lindenwood used on the top. On the natural version, the grain of this spruce-like wood is nicely displayed, although you can also find this model in a deep glossy black paintjob, which adds a touch of unique elegance – especially when paired with the attractive soundhole rosette.

The neck is made of mahogany and feels slim, which is equally great for beginners as it is more advanced players, while the spacious fretboard is stained maple, offering 18 frets in total. The only complaint we had was that the guitar had a bit of an odd odor, smelling a little chemically due to the paintwork. However, this passes after a bit of time and isn’t a deal-breaker.
