Generally the amp isn't very good. They tend to fitz out, and the guitars can be bad.

Better off going to GC and playing a guitar that you like, and asking for help with an amp.

If you go to guitar center, do not FOR THE LOVE OF GOD ask for help. You'll leave there with either a Marshall MG or a Line 6 Spider. My advice is to get a Roland Microcube. It is a very good practice amp for beginners. Others on this site will have good amp recommendations, and make sure to check the stickies (wow do I sound like a parent).

Hope that helps!

Edit: Forgot the main point of thread . As for the pack, there are better Squiers, and there are better guitars altogether, so just play a bunch and see what you like.

^You think you want a trem, but you don't really. They're just an extra hassle for a beginner. The Roland Microcube is possibly the best practice amp for the price.
For the guitar, maybe a Squier standard Tele or Strat. Id recommend an Ibanez RG321, but they're out of your range.
