Silvertone Rockit 21 Electric Guitar Package
Equipped with everything you need to start banging out the hits, the Silvertone SRK1 Combo Package is the complete electric guitar package. Built around the super hot SRK1 Rockit double cutaway electric guitar, and the Silvertone Smart III lead guitar amp. The Smart III features 10 watts RMS of power, a 6" speaker, switchable overdrive, 2-band EQ, a very convenient Tape/CD input, and even a headphone output. This is a great amp to start with - and a cool practice amp for your private rehearsal room. The package also includes a digital tuner, a guitar gig bag, a guitar strap, cable, a pick pack, an instructional DVD, and even an extra set of strings.

RK210 Guitar
When guitar designers originally developed this double cutaway electric, they bet they never thought that years later it would become the first 'Metal Axe'. True to the original design, the SRK1 Rockit features a deep-cut, double cutaway body that allows complete access to the entire neck and has a deep, powerful tone. The SRK1 also features a very fast 22 fret, 24-3/4' scale bolt-on mahogany neck with a sculpted heel and rosewood fretboard, die-cast tuning machines, two high output humbuckers with 3-way selector switch, two volume and two tone controls with speed knobs, and an adjustable Tune-o-matic bridge with a stop tailpiece.

"good value good product"
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars
Its a good starter guitar package. good value good quality. Great for a begginner. If your experienced in guitar i wouldnt suggest it that highly unless you are in the same or a similar situation that i was in.

Sound
For a starter pack its what you expect for sound. The pickups are pretty good though i would suggest better strings. Besides that the guitar istelf has a pretty warm resonant sound and a suprising amount of sustain for a guitar in this price range. The amp is what you would expect for a starter amp. The clean sound is pretty warm and clear on both rhythm and treble settings. The distortion is pretty terrible if your used to better amps or effect pedals but for a begginner its good enough sounding.

Features
a little dissapointed to be honest with the features. the bag is well a bag so theres no real problem there but the picks, tuner, and extra strings, and strap are all low quality. This diddnt Affect my view of the guitar too much however because all these things are fairly cheap anyway and if this isnt your first guitar youll probably have most of these. For the absolute begginer these are functional and there low quality probably wont be a huge issue.

Ease of Use
This guitar was functional and playable right out of the package. The Epiphone SG knockoff design off the body makes it very easy to play and handle. The amp though not that excellent is very easy to use. The read more package is very compatible with effect pedals and other amps. particularly a distortion pedal is great for using with this product (i use an ibanez tube screamer) as it makes up for the amps built in overdrive feature which really isnt very good.

Quality
The quality of this guitar for a starter pack at this price range is fairly impecabble. The guitar looks much more expensive than it actually is and though i cant speak for everyone mine came blemish free. I would not suggest this for "on the road" use its a little fragile and the tone isnt too great for playing venues. For small gigs it might be okay but its not something to go play a big show with. Nothings broken on mine but it feels a little fragile.

Value
For what you get this is a great value. For a begginer i highly suggest this. i bought it after having to sell most of my guitars and amps. Your getting what you pay for and for a begginner this is all you need

The Wow Factor
its a starter guitar its not that "sexy". It looks nice though and the body design is a pretty good replica of some more expensive models. Its more practical than anything else however.
