From the Manufacturer
Fender Starcaster Strat Packs deliver a great-sounding, sleek-looking Stratocaster electric guitar paired with a compact but still-mighty guitar amplifier and a host of essential accessories. This Strat Pack includes a black Stratocaster guitar, strings, picks, a strap, Squier SP-10 amp, a 10-foot cable, a tuner, a gig bag, and an instructional DVD.
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.

Also, the Chromatic Tuner works great, I haven't had any problems with it! I actually have found that the guitar takes quite a while to go out of tune, and I have been abusing the thing playing fast and hard and still it takes a while to go out of tune! It comes with three cool picks, extra strings, allen wrenches, and a strap of course! The biggest negative about this package is the amp, it is only a 10 watt amp, but obviously that is all you need to practice with! The amp sounds perfectly fine when you play your guitar without distortion, but when you do play with distortion it sounds like your gonna blow it if you turn the volume up too high! So when your playing with distortion you are not gonna want to turn the volume up too much, trust me, or you will blow the amp! The amp is passable though, it is definitely good enough to practice on! As others have said the strap is pretty bad too, it will fall off so be careful not to have it fall off and break your guitar! I would recommend buying a new and better strap (they cannot be too expensive)! Or if your just practicing I would just play sitting down.
Overall, this is a great deal! The guitar is very good, nice looking, stays in tune for the most part, and comes with absolutely everything you will need! If you are a beginner I would highly recommend picking this package up! The DVD lessons are a huge bonus to an already great buy, if you follow along with them you will learn how to play! I had absolutely ZERO experience when I bought this guitar a couple months ago and now I can play (only simple stuff), but Im learning and getting better everyday and the guitar still sounds good after all the pounding I have done on it, so that is a good sign! If you got the money pick this up and start playing guitar today, I assure you it is worth it, it is so damn fun to just jam out on your guitar!
UPDATE 5/19/2012 :
This is guitar is so damn reliable it's not a joke. I've modded it since my last review, but I think every guitarists does this later down the road. People have told me to just buy a strat. I said "No, I think I'll mod mine and see what happens." I put in 69' Fender custom pickups, a new fender whammy (planning on getting new tremolo hardware someday), Rev. Willys Guitar strings, I still love celluloid picks :), and I maintain it. Plus, once I get the Rockerverb Orange Amp this baby is gonna sound beautiful. So, all in all, I jam with my friend who has a Strat and my Starcaster is Amazing. Oh and I put in a Toneshaper Circuit Board Pickup hardware. Warning : Get Toneshaper before pick-ups. It saves some effort if your gonna solder yourself like me. People always think I'm saying Stratocaster wrong when I tell them it's a Starcaster! XD They can't believe the sound. I love my Guitar & Rock'N'Roll!
P.S - Planet Waves Tuner is very good Electric/Acoustic. Price too ;)
And SONGSTERR.COM is so FUN! So many guitar tabs there. Great for learning new songs. It's free too! :D
