Good beginner's guitar - but I was let down by the Express Delivery service

Summary: As an over-60, I decided I'd like to try learning to play the electric guitar. I knew there was a risk that I would soon lose interest, so I wanted to buy a decent instrument without splashing out silly money. After reading other reviews, I settled on the Encore kit. I've been using it daily for a month now, and it has fully lived up to my expectations.
Summary: Had this delivered last week and so far I am very happy with it. The item was ordered in the evening and was delivered the very next day at 0830! I did order a book and CD at the same time which came the following day but Amazon had already refunded me the postage! well done Amazon! I bought this for my son who already plays the Keyboard. This will be his first Guitar. OK, The Guitar is well made and feels quite sturdy.
Summary: When I was searching through the catalogue of what instrument I should buy there was so much choice. but to help you budding musicians out, this Guitar was an excellent buy! I brought it for my self to learn a new instrument, and it has done wonders created a few jingles on it also, the package came in mint con'dish, fast delivery, and so much is in the pack to get you started.

Summary: Amazing Amazon! Ordered this item on the 30th Sept and it arrived Saturday morning at 9o'clock the next day, 1st October.!!! And that was Super Saver! The Guitar is just what I always wanted and the sound is perfect to my ears. Ten out of ten for those cheap Chinese. It feels good to hold and the action appears to be just right for me. The carry bag will make it so easy when I get the bus to go to my teacher.
Summary: We bought this for our son who plays classical guitar. As a first electric guitar, he is quite impressed with it and enjoys playing it. The amp however could be a bit more powerful, so we may upgrade that in due course. Handy kit, with everything you need to start off.
Summary: I bought this exact package a few years ago and i can honestly say it is awful. it struggled to stay in tune for 30 minutes of playing, sound was awful and the amp was worse. even with an amazing set up done it was still awful.
Summary: This kit, set whatever you want to callit may have been my one and only Teenage Middle Age Crisis Product. We all see those incredibly talented guitarists and say "Why not? It looks like I can actually teach myself that. How hard can it be?". Let me tell you: VERY DIFFICULT. Or maybe it's just me. I started, got a few callouses and then promply left in the corner. Sometimes I impulsivly pick it up again, but that's about it.
Summary: Please be wary when purchasing this item. It arrived beautifully packaged, very quick delivery and with lots of worthwhile extras - all in, exceptional value for money. However, after booking and pre-paying for lessons to the tune of £200, I found that the guitar in itself was no use to me; Amazon had accidentally sent me a left handed version.
Summary: I am not a guitar expert, I am just a beginner. And I think this guitar is really good for who is starting and at a good price. You can tell why it is cheap maybe by the material or the sound, but still it is only to learn the basics. If you are an expert this will not be for you. It comes with everything that's announced.
