I'd say the Ibanez, only because that's what I started out on. That exact package. It's very nice. The amp is good for beginners, and the DVD will really teach you a lot of things.

i go thte epiphne kit back in the crusades days. i still use the amp as a practice amp whenever im down at my beachouse all summer. I love the amp its great for a practice amp. The headphones came half broken but i fixed em, they work great. Decent quality. Strap worked. DVD teaches you nothing. If your gonna get it, get it for the amp.

Get the yamaha.
BUT.
Instead of the epiphone amp pack thing, get this amp:

much much MUCH better than the two you posted.
I've been using it a lot lately, since I sold my better amp because I was in need of some cash, sounds great, easily loud enough for bedroom playing, i normally keep it at around 9 o'clock for volume

I'm gonna double post and say go for the Yamaha. I actually kinda want that guitar (not to brag, but considering the guitars I own, doesn't that say a lot? X-D ). Then again there's tons of guitars I want... but it actually doesn't sound/play too bad considering the price, and it looks like it's made by Apple

the ibanez. I love the feel of those guitars



I agree. It's really light and comfortable compared to other guitars, and you can get plenty of great tones from it, as well.

Ibanez.

As stated before (it helps to pay attention) I started out on the Ibanez IJX121. The very same you have posted in the beginning of the thread. It's a great solid guitar, and it lasted me for many years. The tone and volume knobs gave me some trouble, as the knobs always fell off. It didn't affect the pots or the sound at all, so it's no big deal. I'd highly recommend it. The amp is decent for a beginner practice, but you'll want to upgrade after about a year to something more substantial. The DVD really helps, as it has acoustic and electric guitar lessons both done by Paul Gilbert himself (Lethal, start fapping right about now) and it also has bass lessons from the guy whose name I can't remember. Also has a 20 minute video clip of Paul Gilbert playing with Racer X from the Snowball of Doom DVD. Chord chat and the book definitely help, I still use the tuner sometimes, and over all, it's just a great package for playing anything. The box says "metal" package, but it can play whatever you need it to play. Good hunting.

k, well if im getting the ibanez 1 more question, white or black?
[IMG]http://i489.photobucket.com/albums/rr253/tarman727/SigContestSig.png?t=1234067139[/IMG]
#30
I love my black, but it's a choice of personal preference. When I originally bought the black, I was playing mostly black metal and **** like that, so it was all "BLACK, BLACK, AND MORE BLACK..." Kind of "Tap"-ish now that I think about it. If I could do it over again, I'd go white.

But yeah, it's just your own personal preference. If you're playing rock and metal and all that, black might be a bit more appealing, but otherwise, white will do just fine.
#31
k, i ordered the black, i really wanted the yamaha but i guess this will do :/

[quote="'[VictorinoX"]']they're decent, but thye won't last near as long as an Ibanez, even if it is a GIO Ibanez.
As a matter of fact my Ibanez is the only guitar I've ever had that has broken. The wood just split apart at the strap button. I felt it was a piece of junk. I tried playing it from time to time through my Mesa and I was never happy with the way it sounded. Even with a SD Invader in it. But good luck to the TS with his!

My strap button on the upper horn was slightly loose, but I just put a bigger screw in there and it's been fine ever since. The sound is decent for starting out. Mine actually still sounds great after six years
#37
tbh, id go for the yamaha, because every cheap ibanez ive played sounded kinda horible
