"For Beginners ONLY!"
Overall: 1.5 out of 5 stars
Like the title says, this is for beginners as a first guitar. As soon as you can afford to get a better quality guitar, I recommend doing it.

Sound
The sound of this amp is not bad, but it is not great either. It does, however, have a lot of different combinations you can choose by using the 3 switches on the amp. These tones range from a clean, jazz tone, to a buzz tone resembling heavy metal guitars of the 70's. Don't expect this amp to get too loud, as the feedback on this amp does not allow it to go past about level 6, before a high pitch tonebegins to squeal out of it.

Features
This product does contain a lot of accesories, but many of them are pure garbage. Those accesories include the strings, if which don't break after the first time you use them, they will quickly lose their tone. I recommend just replacing them right away (Ernie Ball strings seem to work the best). You are also going to want to ditch the amp chord as well, because it will quickly break inside and produce a horrible buzzing noise. The whammy bar does work, but the threads on the inside will easily strip to the point where the whammy bar can no longer screw in. Also, the bridge is very hard to get the strings out. The ends on almost every brand seem to get stuck in the bridge, and need a very careful application of a hammer and nail to remove it.

Ease of Use
It is quite easy to use and modify to the sound you read more want, but it is next to impossible to keep in tune during a single session/gig. And, obviously, in comparrison; it is no Fender or Gibson for its playability or reliability, but it actually better than some guitars I've played.

Quality
The quality is not good on, really, any aspesct of this kit. This is not a road friendly guitar at all. In all, it will probably be fuctional for 3 years tops.

Value
It is a good value (due to poor quality) for all the equipment you do get in this kit.

The Wow Factor
This guitar just looks like a poorly copied Fender Stratocaster, although the headstock on this guitar does look quite a bit better than some copyrighted headstocks on big brand names. But by no means is this guitar for showing off, it is simply a technical guitar.
