Everything You Need to Learn and Play Guitar
Learning to play guitar may take time and effort, but it doesn't need to take much money -- the Ibanez IJV50 Jumpstart Acoustic Pack includes everything you need in one affordable bundle, including an acoustic guitar, a gig bag for protection on-the-go, a guitar strap for stand-up rockin', an electronic clip-on tuner to keep you on-pitch, and an accessories pouch for all the random goodies you're bound to accumulate as you go (extra strings, picks, capo, string winder, and so on.)
The Ibanez V50 Acoustic Guitar
Many people have resolved to learn the guitar, only to give up a short while later. Why? Is the ability to strum a few chords some mystic gift only poured out on a select few? No. The truth is, most people (understandably) are leery of spending a bunch of money on something they're not sure they can do, and then they get frustrated, discouraged, and ultimately quit because their starter-guitar is uncomfortable to play and impossible to keep in tune. If you're serious about learning to play the guitar, you need a serious instrument. Fortunately, this doesn't mean a serious outlay of cash.
Enter the Ibanez V50, the beautiful guitar included in this Jumpstart Pack. The V50 is an incredible value for a name-brand guitar, featuring a spruce wood top (the same wood featured on high-end acoustic guitars) and a rosewood fretboard. It sounds great, is comfortable when playing seated or standing up, and has durable, no-slip tuning machines to ensure any wrong notes you hear are the result of undeveloped technique, not poor craftsmanship. Yes, there will definitely be some "clinkers" when you're first starting out, but don't let that get you down. Learning to do anything worthwhile takes some effort, but it doesn't feel like work if you're doing what you love. With a guitar that fits your hand like this one, how could you not love what you're doing?
Essential Accessories: Gig Bag, Strap, Tuner Included
The guitar itself would be a steal at this price, but Ibanez has thoughtfully thrown in a handful of accessories, too. There's a gig bag for carrying your guitar around and protecting it from dust and scratches, a comfortable guitar strap, a pouch to keep accessories in, and, most importantly, an electronic clip-on tuner. Learning to tune your guitar is an essential step for all players, but it's also a step that can frustrate beginning players. Having an electronic tuner will make the process a whole
lot easier for you. It has a little microphone that picks up the sound of a string when you pluck it, and the display makes it easy to understand what you need to do to get it on-pitch. Stow it the accessory pouch and whip it out whenever you want to play.
Ready to Play Out of the Box!
There's no complicated setup involved with this pack -- this is not one of those packages where you get a bunch of parts, a couple of screws, and an Allen wrench. Just take the guitar out of the box, and you'll be ready to go (at most, you may have to get it in tune, but that'll be a cinch with the included tuner). And when you register your guitar online with Ibanez, you'll even receive a Quick Start instructional DVD to teach you the basics and get you started playing right away. You don't have to spend a few agonizing weeks trying to play "Polly Wolly Doodle," like Bart Simpson did with his first guitar -- you'll be playing songs you've known and loved for years in no time.
