Great value for money if you're just starting out
on 16 March 2017
This package is great value for money if you're just starting out as a beginner.
Guitar: Imitation of the Fender Les Paul with the same basic layout -- two humbucker pickups and a toggle switch that lets you isolate the neck pickup, bridge pickup, or combine both. The four knobs let you control the volume and tone for either pickup. I'm no audiophile so I can't tell you how the tone compares to other guitars, but there's no hissing or humming on the output. There is a tune-o-matic bridge to make it easy to correct the intonation and action -- which you will need to do because the intonation is awful out of the box. After buying a set of good quality strings and spending fifteen minutes with a screwdriver and a tuner, the guitar is now quite playable.
Amp: Volume, Gain, a single Tone knob, and also a button to switch from Clean and Distortion. The nicest thing about this amp is that it is only about 10cm deep, so it takes up hardly any room.
Instrument lead: Straight at one end and right-angled at the other. The lead itself is quite stiff and thin.
Gig bag: Basically puts handles on your guitar to let you carry it from A to B, but offers very little protection other than keeping the dust off.
Guitar Strap: Cheap adjustable strap with thin fake leather ends. The holes are quite large and the ends are somewhat pliable and stretchy, so there's a good chance that it will come off the guitar if you don't take care with it.
Spare Strings: Intonation problems -- you're better off buying some better ones.
Picks: Three basic middle-of-the-road celluloid picks -- I got two black and one pastel blue. I bought a Dunlop variety pack of picks instead to find one that I can get on with.
In conclusion, the accessories are absolutely entry-level and will be the first things that you need to replace, but altogether you have the bare minimum of what you need to get started.
