You'll prolly end up giving up if you buy cheap gear - i played a squier in the store and it actually cut up my hands...A budget Ibanez is the way to go for a first guitar

Quality shouldn't affect you. If you want to learn, then you want to learn. Hell SRV learned on a guitar with 3 strings.

I wouldn't go for this. My mistake was to go for a starter kit. Go for a well-off guitar, because you'll want to keep it's quality for a while than kick yourself for buying such a crap guitar.

I would go for an Ibanez, but nothing outrageous.

i bought that as my first guitar/rig. i think its the same thing, but since it was a few years ago it is probably slightly different. id say it served me well. The guitar really isnt that bad for a first guitar, its better than a squier strat. the amp isnt bad either.

all things considered, id say i had a good experience with it so go for it.

EDIT: i am reffering to the behringer pack

Epiphone SG
Vintage SG
Stagg Strat (With replaced hardware and a Duncan Invader )
Hohner Strat

My advice is to get decent guitar, and the ****tyist amp you can find (cheapest) that way once you actually figure out how to play guitar....you can find an amp you like....because i know when i started playing and i went into the music store to try amps, i was scared to play any amp because i couldnt play guitar....so i just bought whatever one i wanted, which turned out to be **** now that i can play and im dissapointed with my purchse.

so buy a crappy cheap amp and then after 3-4 months of playing guitar, try everything and get the one you want.
