Well let's see ....... at 59 I am re-starting my love of playing the electric guitar. Being a former Fender Strat Man (the Buddy Holly 1957 Stratocaster Vintage Sunburst w/maple fretboard model) and a teenage rock band jammer, I had no idea what was out there today whe I started checking. So I did alot of investigating before deciding on trying one of the Strat Packs. I read all the reviews (both here and elsewhere), visited probably 2 dozen sites, and finally settled on Musician's Friend. Why, price and professional attitude.Now, about the Pack. Folks, if you want to have a piece that IS Fender history featuring a quality guitar, some nice accessories, and a good basic amp, GET THIS PACK.As to the Strat .... how anyone could downgrade the Strat in this package is a puzzle to me. Tight construction, strings sitting exactly where the original Strats had them (low to the fretboard), 5 positions to choose from on 3 decent pickups, an OUTSTANDING FINISH, and 25-40% lighter weight than a Standard Strat. Action is quick and smoothe. And the more you slide and bend, the better she loves it. Whe I can play the intro to Chuck Berry's CAROL, and get the same Fender sound that Keith Richards gets, I'm satisfied. I also plugged the Strat into my Peavey Nashville 112 amp, and the sound was definitely awesome.The Fender 15G amp, IF SET CORRECTLY, performs very well. The Drive Select can deliver a ton of power, and can be distorted badly if overdriven from the Stat + amp settings. It has amazing power, more than I would expect from 15 watts.The Accessories include a strap that, if you convert to the Dunlop Deluxe Strap Lock System, will work well. The tuner is not a high end model, but it can do the job. After trying it, I checked across the fretboard (5,5,5,4,5), and it was in tune. I then checked it against my Boss TU-15 that I use on my 1952 Fender Triple Neck Eight String Steel Guitar, and again, right on tune. The headphones are definitely useable, but not for overdriven distortion. I personally do not use the gearshift on my Strat, but it is there along with extra strings, allen wrench, repair kit, etc. The book from Fender also gives the beginner a good instruction.As to problems ..... I have read in other reviews about hum thru the amp. It is a ground or cable problem, along with possible pickup distortion. If the guitar is set correctly for volume and tone, along with corrrect pickup setting, then YOU CAN CONTROL THE AMP OUTPUT. Complaints on frets buzzing is solely due to the player. I checked every fred insert, and they all are correct. The amp will handle the guitar for normal playing. If a player wants heavy metal and perfect distortion, they need to go up into a more expensive and controlled amp. This pack is a great starter; put this Strat on an expensive amp, and you have a sweet combination.So if you do your homework on checking, you will find that Fender is directing traffic on the Squier production, AND THEY ARE NOT CHEAPING OUT ON THE GUITAR OR AMP. You are getting Fender Quality in the Strat, and a great starter Pack for a low price!I am just surprised that Fender can give a Strat that this nice.

Like many guitar players, this was my first electric guitar. For a while when I was just a wee little guitar noob, I thought the guitar was a pretty good piece of equipment. But as I played on, I realized it's not very good at at. For example, I really like to do string bends and whammy bar stuff. Every time I did any sized bend or whammy anything (on the g string especialy) it would go way out of tune. Also, the pick-ups are really cheap with a sound to match. With this guitar, you can forget about good harmonics. Lastly about the guitar, the out-put jack got all lose and jiggly. I still get sound, but it always feels like it's gonna fall out.As for the amp...it sucks. The volume control is way off, when you get to like 2, it get louder than it should. The distortion sounds terrible, EQ totally sucks and is almost useless. Right now I just use this amp as a speaker, sisce the only good feature is that it has auxillery jacks to plug in something.Even the accessories suck. The gig bag is cheap and doesn't provide much protection and it doesn't have any way of sercuring the guitar. The strap is made nylon or somthing and is really uncomfortable after a while. The cable is too short and for it got bent at the prong and stopped working. Then there is the tuner. It only tunes standard tuning. so can forget about alternate tunings. Also, all the strings broke in like a week. And the picks didn't last long either.In conclusion, never buy the Strat Pak. It's a totally waste of money and if you are really sirious about learning guitar, for the love of science just save your money and get some desent equiqment.

I like it. The guitar gets some really awesome strat sounds. The amps cleans are the strength of it in my opinion. The overdrive is a bit flat and not very good. I bought a pedal (Boss DS-1, it's awesome!) and it sounds a whole lot better. The guitar has intonation struggles and don't use the whammy bar that comes with it. it does more harm than good. But otherwise, it's a great starter pack.
I bought this guitar a little over two years ago and let me tell you, this is a great pack for a aspiring guitarist as I was when I began. The amp was great and I remember the moment I turned on the Drive I was so happy about it. I absoloutely loved it and the guitar and amp. Well I used that guitar for about a year until I upgraded to an ESP and a Line 6. Then another year later to a Gibson and a Marshall. Well let me cut things short and trust me, this is a great package. I had a little problem with the saddle of the High E string causing the string to break but other then that the guitar has never had any problems. Great Guitar. Great Amp. Great Deal. Great Store. To become a great player.
I have owned this pack for about three months and I see nothing wrong with it. The guitar to me sounds just like a true fender strat and as far as 15 watt amps go I would say that it is top of the line. Pretty much its an affordable fender strat without losing much quality and they throw in a few things with it.
i recently bought this and i think its ok. it's a good guitar and has a good sound. i have only two problems with it. the tuner is terrible and the amp has a lot of background noise. other than that, it's a pretty good set for a beginner. it is a great deal for the price.
The pickups on this guitar realy give you a great sound. The pickup switch lets you choose between five different settings. I was just learning electric when i got this guitar. It gave me a great intro into the electric guitar world. good for all sounds. little fuzzy when turning up the distortion to reach a blues style.
I've been playing guitar four a year and this guitar is great, it has all the qualities of a expensive one for a reasonable price
I bought this guitar about 4 months ago and it rules. It has a classic sound and great quality. The guitar is sweet and has great hardware. The amp is good. The only problem I have has is that the drive selector switch on the amp is a little tempramental. With different pics and a new strap, this package will let you rock hard all day long! Rock Hard!!!
Bought this guitar about 2 yrs. ago. IT SUCKS. The pickups suck. There is so much feedback. The toggle swich sucks, theres not much of a difference in sound if you change pickups with it. The strap sucks, I just replaced it right after I got the whole thing. The nut would be better off being styrofoam. The amp is horrible- feedback. If you want to buy a guitar, buy a epiphone les paul, and get a decent amp. Do yourself a favor and don't buy this.
We bought this guitar last xmas for my 11 yr old punk music playing daughter...she loved it at first and dont think bcz shes 11 that she cant play bcz she can play great and has a natural talent...the guitar played fine for her punk music but goes out of tune very quickly...also once the strings were changed the sound of the guitar changed drastically and it took my husband which has been playing for 30 yrs a month to get it back in tune properly for her...i also notice the buzzing sound everyone else speaks of also the knob for the strap does losen up. she never used the strap it came with bcz we bought her a cool strap she wanted. overall its a great begginers guitar but shes ready now for something better and this xmas were getting her the line 6 spider amp 75 watts and an esp ltd guitar but i know she will always love her first fender and continue playing for years to come...she also tends to like the fender sound and she likes the single coil pickups.
I have been playing the guitar for a year. This was my first guitar. I got the black one. It's awesome to start out with but now I'm ready for something better. If nyou buy this I recommend that you replace the cable & Strap right away. My cable broke only after a few months. The strap is very ucomfortable. You also might want to replace the tuner. It's not that grate. The guitar its self is a very good guitar. The amp is pretty good and loud for its size. There is a lot of humming noise when you use the distortion though. Overall it?s a great guitar to start out with. I wouldn?t have gotten anything other than this guitar to start off with. I will keep it forever!
I got this package a couple of years ago for my 16th birthday and loved it right away. Its a pretty good guitar and the amp is good to be as small as it is. If you are looking for a good beginning guitar, this is the best.
I got this package for christmas. It's THE PERFECT BEGINNERS GUITAR. The only downside really is a buzz on the E string. I'm using this guitar still and it works great. Quality is good, it doesnt break in any way easliy, that I know of.
This is absolutely perfect for people who are just begining and dont exactly have alot of cash. It has excellent sound. The Frontman amp is great I still use it to this day.
OK i bought this guitar in artic white as my first guitar 2 years ago. It sucks. I thought it was kool at first but you grow out of it in like 3 months. My tremelo broke and the bridge also broke and snapped off. my input jack falls off all the time and my pickups shorted out after 6 months. Even when it was playable it sounded horrible. DONT BUY THIS
This guitar is very well for a beginner. I've had it for a while and it was good until I improved. Once you improve you will find yourself wanting a better sounding guitar.
The package is good because it comes with all the accessories, but the guitar and amp are not very good. The amp does not have very good distortion, but I just bought a pedal to fix that. The pickups on the guitar are worthless. I have picked up radio signals and there seems to be a lot of static sometimes. This package is good for a beginner, but there are better products for less money.
I'v had this guitar for a little while now and already the string broke. It doesn't really matter that much it come's with extra string's but still.I guess the everything else works pretty well. But the 2nd only bad thing is that the amp hums alot but I think it's just my cable. But I gotta say it's a pretty good guitar for the price and it's very good for people wanting to get into music.
I got this guitar almost one year ago and I am just in love with it. The strap is a bit uncomfortable, and the input jack on the strat became really loose, and the cord to connect the amp and guitar is a rubbish. Those are the negatives. Now on a brighter note, the tone of this guitar is fantastic. It has a really classic sound. The amp is fantastic, no matter how loud you crank it up. The overdrive is great, but when you get to higher notes, it kind of looses its feel and tone. I've read a lot of reviews about this package and everyone seems to have at least one problem but it seems every single persons problem is different. I wonder why that is. The tuning keys are great except for the lower E string, that one is driving me mad. But all in all, the strat itself is great. Even after a player becomes advanced, I think they could stick on to this strat, just maybe with a new, more powerful amp. I play for about four hours a day (I want to be a rock guitarist), and I've been playing every day for a year and have not run into any major problem whatsoever. Fantastic buy. Fully recommended.
This guitar was first electric. I chose it mainly because it would hold it's value and would give me some cash toward something better after awhile. I must say, for the year that I played only this guitar, I loved it. It has very impressive tone for such an inexpensive instrument. I couldn't bear to part with it. It won't stack up to my Ibanez RG320 as far as crunch and midrange, but that's not what a strat is about. The pickups are still very clear and glassy. Perfect for any kind of music, save for very heavy metal. If you're a beginner or have been playing about a year and want a solid instrument, this is it.
Hi, I just turned 13, even though I'm young I'm really good and I'm my guitar teacher's best student. The amp that comes with this guitar is good, but not great. It is lacking in the features department and you can only get about 4 different tones out of it. My parents got me the Line 6 Spider 2 which has 75 MEGA WATTS OF POWER! It is so loud that I only keep the master volume to two. Anyway back to the guitar, The cable for this guitar is ok, but then again my dog chewed it. It worked for a little while even after it was chewed, but then it just shorted out. The headphones are great. They have a volume control on the headphones so you can get your amp loud, but turn your headphones to be quieter. The book shows you a lot of the cords that are most used. The book trys to teach you how to read music, but it is very vague so if you want to read music. get a music teacher, or someone who knows how to read music to show you how to read it. The strap kinda sucks, but it's okay, you just need to get some strap locks. The picks are nice and handy, specially if you do not have any (like I did) and you are not going to a music store anytime soon. The strings are great, I think, they have not broken on me yet for two years, so I don't know if the extra ones are good. The tuner is really nice to have when you can't tune your guitar and it is quite accurate. It is a great beginners guitar, but I'm gonna convince my parents to buy me an Epiphone (made by Gibson) Les Paul. If you are a beginner what are you waiting for, GO AND BUY THIS GUITAR!
