If you're thinking about learning the guitar then you may already have started looking at some guitar kits which suit your needs. These starter packs can be really great, they take all the fuss out of buying musical accessories and allow you to buy all the things you need in one go, often saving you a fair amount of money. Unfortunately not all guitar kits are great, some of the beginner packs especially feature poor quality equipment which simply isn't meant to last, this article is going to try and set you on the right track.
First of all you need to decide what it is that you want from a starter pack, I'm guessing if your jus learning the instrument you won't really know so let's talk about some of the features great guitar kits should include. A guitar, amp and cables are the bare essentials, most packs should have these. You should try to look for guitar kits that also include a guitar strap, electronic tuner and an educational music book.
Now you know what you want, we need to discuss how to determine the good from the bad. The most accurate way to determine this is by the type of brands on the guitar and amplifiers provided in the kit. Well known brands such as Yamaha, Fender and Ibanez are always going to be top performers, it's the cheaper guitar kits with rather obscure brand names that you need to be careful of. As a rule I would never suggest any beginner to buy a starter pack which is under £100, the simple fact is if you can make the stretch to £150 you are likely to be getting a better quality instrument and equipment in the pack.
For those of you who are still stuck, I fully recommend buying the Squier by Fender Affinity Strat guitar kit. This kit comes with an awesome Squier guitar and Fender bullet amp which just sound awesome together, they will suit anyone's playing style and for £200 you can't really get much better.
