Summary: Bought this as a starter guitar for my 12 year old grandson who is in the process of learning electric guitar at school. Have played guitar myself for a good few years but only have a short experience with the electrical variety having recently purchased an older style Encore at a local car boot sale. I have to say that this guitar is brilliant for the price and has great tone and action. Amp is more than sufficient for home use despite some more critical reviews.
Summary: I would really highly recommend this guitar for beginners. It is really well made and sounds really good. Excellent value for everything you get, the only downside is that the amp is terrible. I ended up buying a new Marshall amp very quickly but the one that comes with it is still reasonable for the price.
Summary: Good guitar for beginners. Keeps tuning very well and the electric tuner is very easy to use once you get the hang of it. The DVD that comes with it is useful but not as good as having a teacher by far. Guitar looks much better than what it does in the picture and sounds fairly good. Good sized plectrum for beginner and amplifier works well. All in all completely worth its money.
Summary: Bought this for my 8 year old son for Christmas, and couldn't believe the quality and variety of the components you get for your money. When it arrived I seriously considered keeping it for myself, so I think it is inevitable that I will be purchasing myself another....maybe in black though, just to be a bit different! In short, I now have a keen trainee junior axeman in the family, and I'm the coolest Dad ever!!
Summary: The guitar is fantastic. I ordered mine here on amazon from JHS and it came fine, a little bit dirty but nothing significantly wrong with it. The volume and tone controlls don't actually say which is which but that won't be hard to work out. The tuner's fine, strings are easy to fret and the accessories work well. The amp isn't the best but it does the job for practising at home so for the price the package is unbelievable!
Summary: I ordered this Guitar and it was dispatched within the week, I was surprised to find that it arrived within just one day of dispatch day. I was very happy with this delivery speed. As far as the Guitar, it's pretty good value for money and I can't complain. Recommended for a first Guitar user; looking for a cheap Instrument just for practicing.
