    5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable value 24 May 2010
    I bought this guitar for myself as a complete novice. If there is any confusion let me first confirm this is a full sized adult guitar. The guitar itself plays well, however I have nothing to compare it to so I shall leave the other reviews posted as a testiment to the quality of the guitar.

    What amazed me was the amount of items that came out of the box, it just kept coming! This pack has everything you will need to get you going. The amp is perfectly suitable for a begginner so I would not worry about rushing off too soon to get a replacement. The guitar stand is excellent, the carry bag leaves a little to be desired but is still fine. The tuner is a little tricky at first but a bit of playing around will get you used to it. The DVD is fine to get you going for your first few practises, but you will probably want to get something else (lessons/book/other dvd) after not too long. I would recommend buying a new good quality cable as the one supplied receives quite a lot of interference which can be rather annoying. The strap is fine. It even comes with a plectrum and set of spare strings! Though I would recommend buying a range of plectrums and choose the one which suits you best as this will make learning to play must more comfortable.

    In summary, if you are looking for a guitar set up for a begginner look no further, this has everything you need and more.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Very good beginer's guitar...and then some 29 Nov 2008
    I'm no seasoned guitarist, but I have bought a couple of other guitars and this one isn't surpassed by the others. I was worried that this would be cheap and nasty, and would hinder my learning to play. I've actually found it to be quite a polished performer. One of the other guitars I bought looked to be very much the same as this one (for my son), but is in fact nowhere near the quality. The neck actually bends as you play, and it constantly goes out of tune, so beware buyers: there are some shoddy products out there. The other is an expensive bass guitar and rather a fine piece of work. The Encore is just as good. It took a few retunes for the strings to bed in, but now it just needs an occasional tweek. It's had to put up with some rough treatment from my lad as he mimics his rock gods, but it's taken it and remained shiney and sweet sounding. The amp is good enough for any home performance, the strap needs replacong quite soon and the DVD is a short lived exercise. I'D THOROUGHLY RECOMMEND BUYING A LINE6 SPIDER 3 15W AMP. A whole bunch of effects for the would-be guitar hero. This baby and this guitar sound sweeeeeeeeeet in so many ways.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Encore 4 the Encore 4 Oct 2009
    This was bought for my daughters 15th Birthday, she plays the clarinet (quite an expensive instrument if you want a decent one)and decided she wanted to teach herself guitar. I shopped around and did a bit of research and could find nothing bad about the guitar. I checked out a couple of high street instrument shops and they all recommended the guitar. The kit I bought from Amazon has everything you need to unpack and start playing - its that simple. My daughter has not put it down now and has talked me into getting a guitar to learn with her. This was money well spent, I am no pro or have any connection to the retailer or manufacturer, a lawyer by trade I looked for the catch but it does what it said on the label, I would recommend if you are looking - this is well worth the money.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Really good value for money! 9 Jan 2010
    I didn't want to spend a lot on an electric guitar package for my son only to find out that it was another short-lived fad, but the concern I had about buying it over the internet, at such a bargain price, was that it would be cheap rubbish. It is not. Before I bought it I read other reviews saying how the guitars are being played years on, even though the amp may have been upgraded, & having held the guitars I can see why; a solid build with no tacky finishes. The package provides everything to get started (guitar case, stand, plectrum, strap) & my son is thrilled with it. It's definitely money well spent. I did buy some additional tuitional literature though; anything to stop him playing 'Smoke on the Water'.

    3.0 out of 5 stars A beginner's guitar 21 Nov 2010
    Bought this guitar from amazon almost 2 years ago as my first electric guitar, and I have to say it did fantastically and is still playing just like it did 2 years ago.

    Build- being an imitation product of a Fender Strat it's surprisingly good quality, and much better than some other imitations I have come across, though expect anything near a 'proper' guitar like an original strat, or low end Ibanez for example. The floating bridge however does seem to absolutely ruin the tuning of the guitar.

    Playability- the fretboard is a little clunky making it rather difficult to get some of the faster licks you might want in. However from a beginner perspective, that is a plus, as it forces careful technique.

    Amp- this is literally a practice amp and nothing else, it has no features, no positives e.g. the distortion can't even manage a single wispy artificial harmonic. It does a simple job, at an average level.

    Accessories- can't complain about these they are all fine apart from that the bag affords absolutely no protection to your guitar, the teaching cd is pointless and barely scrapes the surface of guitar playing, considering the vast amount of info available on the net.

    Overall 3/5, a good choice as a beginning guitar, but you will need to switch as you demand more from your playing.
