This package, like Fender advertises, comes with everything you need. All the accessories are not shy of quality. The guitar itself is very good, plays just fine and it's pretty much what you would expect from Fender. Now as far as tone goes, my ears do not deceive me. The tone control knobs work fine and you can hear their functionality. But the pickups lack a certain depth. While playing the guitar, it's a little hard to perfectly identify what pickup position you are in. When compared to the 15G amp, the guitar has pretty much no problems whatsoever. Because the amp is the real problem here. It becomes very clear that the amp that your supplied with just cant hold its own when you either try to push limits and/or trying to find a perfect tone to play through. But hey, for this price it's pretty good. All-in all, this package is a great deal for up and coming players and you can make it work the way you want and for the way you play. But not right of the bat.

My father got this kit 7 years ago for Christmas as an attempt to try and learn guitar, but he never did. Around 2 1/2 years ago, I learned guitar in school, on an acoustic, again, my father's. I then progressed onto electric, somewhat inheriting this kit from my father. In those seven years, of it both sitting there and being played, the ONLY problem I've had with it, and it's a quick fix for €15, is I needed to change the nut, as the high E-string sliced through it. Other than that, general wear around the jack on the cable caused some issues, but I love the guitar. Sounds good, plays well, nice weight (I ended up buying a new strap and strap locks as the original kept slipping off the strap 'buttons'. ) Definitely get it, as it's a great kit for starters up to semi-pro, In my opinion! Really good for classic rock!
Strap started slipping off Strap 'buttons', cable is a bit short, original nut is a little soft, Um...that's about it! (That's after thinking long and hard, and digging deep to look for faults)
