    Comments about Fender Starcaster Stratocaster Electric Guitar Value Pack:

    In fairness I can only rate the guitar itself. Im sure the amp it comes with is garbage. All starter pack amps are. I've been playing guitar though for 12 years and own prs's, fenders, gibsons, epiphones, schecters, and have recently found myself owning 3 of these almost by accident. I bought the first one as a parts guitar. Once I started playing it though I realized I actually really liked some of the tones I got out of it. Sure some of the fit and finish was a little rough but if that bothers you then you shouldnt be looking at guitars in this price range. I bought the second guitar for my fiance because she liked mine so much and wanted to learn how to play. The third was purchased more so that I could swap neck, body, and pickguard colors easily if I wanted (other than tone and volume knobs fender parts do NOT fit these guitars). Bottom line is with a good amp and/or good effects pedals if you can't make this guitar sound good then it's your fault. Plain and simple.

    Comments about Fender Starcaster Stratocaster Electric Guitar Value Pack:

    First of all, This is a CHEAP guitar, it's not going to sound like your buddy's true Strat. Second, EVERY guitar needs a professional set up. Lower the action, Set intonation, Shave fret edges, ect. I have done all that myself, so in it's very best playability, It isn't bad! it's a solid player. It stays in tune, it sounds decent, it is CHEAP! The downside? Horrid pickups. I mean terrible. They are so loud (Hum) and the bridge pickup is worthless. It distorts everything. If you got the money, replace your pickups. You'll have a guitar then that is comparable to a Standard Stratocaster. Overall, I'd give this guitar (Fresh out of the box) a 3/5. Only because of the sound, and how far off the setup is. With my setup, everything how it should be, 4/5. With better electronics/pickups it'd be 5/5. So it's up to you how good you want your guitar to be. Also, mine came with a Maple neck, that changes sound a little.

    AWESOME! for what i had in mind

    By telelover465

    from Ringgold, GA

    Comments about Fender Starcaster Stratocaster Electric Guitar Value Pack:

    great guitar for begginers, great guitar for guys who want a guitar to mod and make better.
    It's okay by it'sself, but i fixed it up to make it AWESOME. i AM NOT a begginer. i've got an american strat and tele which i use most often. i bought this just to mess up. been a player for 7 years. this review is only on the guitar, as i did not purchase the amp, tuner, gig bag, and whatever else this thing usually includes.
    eh. quality is okay. mine has a maple fretboard, which im in love with. it's a very chuncky, smooth neck. only one dead fret, and it's not too bad. adjustable trussrod. great bonus. not sure what kind of wood the body is, but i really wish i knew. whatever it is it's got a super thick coat of something under the paint on top of the wood. mine has a floating tremolo (goes up and down) not sure if this is standard on these gutiars, but i love the fact that it has it. kind of hard to keep in tune. pickups sound like crap (ultra muddy) with the exception of the bridge pickup, which is actually kind of nice. my friend sold me this guitar (black) for a low price, so how could i resist? i dragged it all over the street, set it on fire, and sanded all of the paint off then let my friends paint whatever on it, but it's still in perfectly playable condition. in fact, i use it at some of my bands shows. pretty good guitar for what it's worth. i did replace the tuning machines, the nut and im replacing the bridge at the moment. i also replaced the neck pickup and middle pickup and i am debating weather or not i should replace the bridge pickup.
    great guitar if you want to mess it up like i did. i reccommend this guitar to begginers everywhere. you WILL hopefully move on from this piece of junk, but it's a great tool to learn on. i'd take it over an epiphone any day of my life. i did get an unbeatable deal on the guitar, but i bought the guitar only. no gig bag, no amp, no tuner. i've already got those things.

    Don't know about the other guy's rating but...

    By Josh Baxter

    Comments about Fender Starcaster Stratocaster Electric Guitar Value Pack:

    I bought this because I was tired of borrowing the church's stratocaster. I got it at a pawn shop new. It was great and I don't regret buying it. It is great for those who have just begun on an acoustic and are ready to move on but have trouble playing a top- quality electric guitar, be because they aren't used to the low action or it's awkward for them... The action is alright. The sound quality is not amazing, but for it's price, you can't complain. I currently play a telecaster and I can play fast and improvise and I owe it all to the starcaster,

    Do not buy this.

    Comments about Fender Starcaster Stratocaster Electric Guitar Value Pack:

    If you ever see this product in any store, make sure you buy it so that you can destroy it so nobody has to suffer with it like I did.
    Everything about this guitar and package is absolutely awful.
    Awful Quality.
    The same value as dirt.
