Question New at guitar, which is best: epiphone, behringer, or squier?

I'm deciding to buy a basic to guitar to get started with. Nothing over 200 dollars. I'm not sure which one of the packages is the best? What do you think? Thanks!

I would go with the Behringer. Its really not bad especially for the price. And if you decided guitar isnt for you, then you havent lost much.

Behringers are HORRIBLE. (IMO, their amp's sound bad). Go Epiphone.

Id say the squier... one reason is because what guitarist hasnt owned a guitar made by fender... another is because... if you dont like guitar its a cheap guitar... but if you like it... you already got a "decent" soundin guitar... for a starter... But the choice all depends on what you would think... What sound do you like best... what comes with the best deal? you must ask these questions too...

None of them.

But Epiphone out of those.

Go Epiphone, Behringer guitars and amps suck, thought their big gig speakers pwn everything. And Squier is just to cliche and plays like f*ck

Btw Epiphone looks cool...

I would choose the Squier... I have the same pack... the only letdown is probably the SP10 AMP, no customization of the Overdrive. Other than that it's a nice beginners guitar... plays well and won't break the bank

^ i also had the same pack, the amp sounds worse then an mg, and the guitar started falling apart after not even a year... go for the epiphone, majority wins!

All of these are pretty bad guitars...but if you MUST get one of these...go for the epiphone. My friend has a Behringer guitar and it is possibly the worst guitar I have ever played.

I would recomend saving up for a half decent guitar...For example a PRS standard ($450).
Saving up and getting something that you like is better than getting something right away that is mediocre at best.

Also...ebay is great for getting something cheap that is pretty good!

And for a good starter amp- cube 15 (pretty good tone that is pretty close to tube)

EDIT- also the squire is a horrible guitar....noisey, hard to play, and bad tone

They have some starter packs and the guitars are a very good value. I have an Agile and an SX strat copy. Both of them play very well!

You should go with an acoustic or th Epiphone. Definately DON'T get the Squire though.
