Starter packs are really...not good. They're meant to be the option for parents of 9-13 year olds who aren't even sure if their kid will play for more than a week or two.

Pretty much. To me, it's treating theory as prescriptive rather than descriptive. If there's no practical benefit, then why bother?

Even as a giant prog fan, I don't think progressive metal should be part of a primer. Progressive music just tends to be a more complex form of some other genres or (rarely) an amalgam of a few...

Or you could not do this, because it's making the guitar hard to play for no reason.

Honestly, a baritone is probably your best bet. If you buy one used, there shouldn't be an issue.

Well, they're all named "Jackson Select (insert model)". :shrug:

Yeah, but just a hair. The user should still be able to tell that there is a bass guitar. Don't pull a "...And Justice For All", where the bass is so low that in the mix that you NEVER hear it.
