Disappointed with amp

(2.0)
disappointed on June 4, 2014 (updated June 5, 2014)
Rock Classic Rock Pop Rock

This guitar is fun to play, but the Frets were really rough and scrap the hands. Just needs a bit of a touch up. The playabilit is good, but the action is a little too high. Also, the amp has lots of feature built in but unfortunately, my amp has problem where aprox. 7 of the built in amp types don't work. And this is right out of the box, not over time... So that amp was/is a big disappointment.

Git Jammin!

DR_C on April 6, 2014 (updated April 8, 2014)
Blues Rock Heavy Metal Country Bluegrass

After having a couple of major strokes several years past,my Occupational Therapist[OT] suggested I string up my old Strat(Japan) and see if I could remember any chords or just start strumming? About a month ago,March 2014,at my local music store, they had this particular "kit."
Nice kit! Also,as a senior sixty sumthin...looking at those words on the amp knobs? I still have my 1961 SHURE vacuum-tube amp up and running thru a 700w PA system 18" woofers.
I do like this guitar though. As I relearn the chords, finger placement and get my mojo up and together, I might actually hook up with my new friends and git some jammin' done.

I feel this is a great beginner, Starter Pac. I got mine for X-Mas in 2007. Still have it. I didn't get all the goodies that come's with the newer Pac. Mine came with Guitar, Gig bag, And the Sweet little 15 watt G-DEC- Junior, Amp. That little amp. Is very inspiring. The tones and sounds that come in the presets in the amp. Are amazing, And with a little practice, It just makes you want to learn more and keep playing.

The Black Strat, with HSS. pickups has great tone,sound, chime and sustain. If your looking and want to start playing. I strongly suggest This package It;s a great starter.

Thanks Fender.
Wc2.
