I did a little research on these guitars last month. I ended up buying the Fender Standard Strat, but I learned during my research that this is a good affordable "Strat" style guitar for beginners. The sound is not in the same class as the more expensive Strats, but it is quite decent nontheless.

The difference between the 112J and the 112M is that the 112J has a Rosewooed fretboard while the 112M has a Maple fretboard. Other than that, they are identical.
The 112JL and 112ML are lefty versions of the 112J and 112M respectively.
For an absolute beginner, the fretboard might not matter as far as playing goes. If you do decide to buy this guitar, just aim to get either the 112J or 112M at the cheapest possible price.
