Best intro level Guitar kit?

Asked by BronxLens (1539points) June 1st, 2008

Looking for one that comes as part of a kit. Among some options I see in Amazon are the Kona Deluxe Acoustic (part of the Guitar for Dummies Kit) & the Behringer Acoustic.

first of all, are you planning on electric or acoustic? second, don’t outcheap it, if it’s cheap you’ll know it will probably not be good, right?

Guitar Hero!

no, that’s just a game, been playing guitar for some time, also have the games, i can safely say that guitar hero is shame to guitar playing

well, recently played on a pretty cheap alhambra, which sounded pretty amazing, i also like the ibanez accoustics, those are my advices

I suggest purchasing a guitar and whichever book separately- not as a kit. A name brand will hold value. Entry lvl martins are great. Check out books and DVDs at

Get one the Fender Squire packages from Guitar Center or your local music store.

They’re prob the you’ll get for the very low price. It comes with everything you’ll need.

depends what you’re after… Guitar Hero ruined a lot of potentials who jump straight to electric and wonder why they can’t learn “something easy” like Nativity in Black.

Go Fender. They’ve got a solid wood body, strings, tutorial DVD, picks and more in a “gig bag” for $300 or less. Check especially around Christmas time.
