Stratocaster Guitar
The highly versatile Stratocaster guitar offers legendary Fender tone combined with classic styling, and it's suited for all styles of music. It features a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot position inlays, three single-coil pickups with 5-way switching for the Strat's trademark tonal variety, sealed die-cast tuners for consistent tuning stability, chrome hardware and a three-ply white pickguard. The synchronous tremolo bridge can be used for subtle shimmery manipulation of chords or hard-core whammy-bar excursions. You'll also get a wide range of tones from the single volume and dual tone controls.

Squier SP-10 Amplifier
The Squier SP-10 amp controls include volume, treble, bass, and an overdrive on/off button that delivers tube-like tone. A headphone output allows silent practice. It features a 6-inch speaker, 10-watt drive, and a tough, textured vinyl exterior.

Instructional DVD
Get started on the basics right away with a lesson DVD from Fender.

...And Everything Else
No need to shop for the accessories as they're all included. The package includes an extra set of strings, some guitar picks, a strap, and an instrument cable. And of course you'll need a stand for setting down your instrument securely, and a gig bag for hauling it around.

I am a bass guitar player, and own/have owned several bass guitars, including a Fender Mustang and currently a Fender Precision (Sting signature series). I have also owned a Fender Squier (6-string) guitar before. We ordered the Starcaster guitar package for my middleschool daughter.

It's a great guitar with great sound; honestly, the sound is fantastic. And there are a lot of peripheral items included at a fabulous price. We've had no problems at all with the cord or amp, and the sound that little amp makes it really clear. Hit the overdrive, and you get a nice distortion sound. You can't control the amount of overdrive (it's either on or off), but for a beginner or for household use, it's perfect. The compact guitar stand is very stable for its size.

A few other reviewers have criticized the guitar for string buzz. Well, you can adjust the bridge very easily. The package even includes the little hex-wrench needed to make the adjustment yourself. (Anyone that pays $100 for someone else to do such minor tweaking got ripped off ... you may as well pay someone to tune it for you.)

If there is one drawback to the guitar, the edges of the frets are a little rough, something I've never encountered with a Fender product before. I find it noticible, but I wouldn't even call it uncomfortable. And certainly not so rough as to cut up your hands, as one reviewer exaggerated.

One final note, the guitar not only sounds great, it looks beautiful as well. The candy-apple red color is rich and deep (slightly darker than the picture), and the finish has no flaws at all.

I have no hesitation recommending this to any beginning or intermediate player.

I read all of the product reviews before buying this guitar and finally decided it would be worth the risk. And I was right, it was worth it. The shipping box came with a few dings in it, but the product is packed very well. There was absolutely no damage to anything inside the box. As a beginning guitarist, I think the product is excellent. The little amp seems to have a lot of volume and good tone, and the guitar is very well made from what I can tell. It sounds good, feels good, and plays very well. And contrary to everything I read, the frets are not sharp on the ends. In fact mine are beveled and smooth.

I do however have two small complaints. It seems like everyone has either the red or starburst colors, so I opted for the midnight blue. Well, it's midnight alright. It's so dark, that you need a really bright light or sunlight just to be able to tell it's not black. And then it looks more of a dark purple than blue. My second complaint was a buzz from the 5th (A) string at the 6th and 7th frets. All the other strings played well, except this one at this location. I adjusted the neck three times and retuned the strings three times and now it seems to be fine.

I'm sure if you're a master guitarist that has owned some really nice guitars you could find a lot of fault with the Starcaster. But for my money and level of experience, this was a great buy and a fantastic start on learning to play the guitar. I'm sure I'll out grow this one and move up some day in both quality and price, but I'm also certain I won't ever regret having started out with this guitar.

Would I buy it again. Absolutely. Would I recommend it as a good "starter" guitar for the price. Absolutely.

I ordered this product as it was a featured product during the month of February 2009. I feel that the product that I got for the sale price was very much worth the money.

Please understand that I am a novice electric guitar player. I have played acoustic guitar for several years and wanted to get a 2nd guitar...an electric guitar...to play around with.

All in all, the guitar is perfect for what I need. I am not out playing gigs or anything, but I love to sit down and play this instrument.

The pack came with the guitar, amp, guitar strap, picks, a tuner, a gig bag, an extra set of strings, and a "how to" DVD.

A great value for the quality of the product!

This is a beginner's electric. I knew that when I bought it, so I wasn't surprised that it wasn't something amazing. However, it is surprisingly well-crafted for such an inexpensive guitar. I don't have much experience with electrics, so I can't go into detail on any of the mechanics, but I know that, with a little tuning and a little adjusting of the parts, it sounds great. Plus, because it's not perfect, it's perfect for beginners; it forces beginners to learn the different parts of an electric guitar and how to tune on their own.

People may complain about the amp or the strings, but the amp is fine for a practice amp. Like others have said, this amp wasn't meant to played at rock concert, it's meant for the home or even a small coffeehouse. The strings suck, I'll admit, but good strings are cheap and easy to get, so it's not really a problem.

If you want to learn to play an electric, or know someone who does, I highly recommend this guitar. It won't be what you rock out on to a crowd of thousands, but it's a great guitar to learn on and it'll last you a long time.

Plus it's f*cking beautiful in candy red.
