The reviews of people saying that the included guitar is awesome or plays great must be from newcomers that haven't had a lot of exposure to the instrument. If judging by looks only, I'd say its a 10. It looks like a nice guitar and feels like a decent guitar. That's as far as the complements go however. In fact, I would say this guitar hurts the game and could possibly turn people away from wanting to learn how to play altogether. Nothing is more aggravating and frustrating than trying to play a guitar that can NOT be played in tune. Especially when trying to learn, because you don't know if its something your doing wrong or just the fault of a cheap guitar.
The intonation on the guitar that I received was terrible. When tuned perfectly in standard tuning (E,A,D,G,B,E) the notes would be off as i played further up the fret board. The guitar did not have an adjustable tune-o-matic bridge, so there was nothing that could be done to adjust the intonation of the guitar. Chords played in the open position are fine, but when playing bar chords it would sound terrible.
I can't comment on the the game yet because i wrapped this thing up and sent it right back so I can just buy the Game alone. If you are considering on buying this bundle, DO NOT. You will only become frustrated and detoured from practicing because you will sound terrible and think its because of your lack of ability. In fact it is just do to the fact that this is a cheap imitation of a guitar. You can look at your local guitar store and try guitars you feel comfortable with. Then write down the type of guitar it is and its model number. You can then shop around or hop on ebay and get a GREAT used guitar with a case for $200~$500.
