What Electric Guitar Package for beginner?

Hello,
I'm in middle school and found Behring V Tone Electric Guitar pkg for $120. I also heard Silvertone Electric Guitar pkg for $170 is good. These include AMP, Cables etc. What brand can anyone recommend to me.
I will be learning to play and want to keep it 1-2 yrs. Thank you for any reply.

Re: What Electric Guitar Package for beginner?

The strat starter pack is supposed to be very good.
give that a try.

Re: What Electric Guitar Package for beginner?

I must disagree with the strat pack id liek you to email me because i am in highschool and even though im young i work in a guitar shop and happens to be the strat pack isnt very good, so far top of the line is the LTD M-10 package. Just search it up, i dont think its very expensive prolly bout what you want to pay and it has great equal ammounts of clean and distorted sound and tone, if you dont like that have a look at some b.c.rich starter packs which include te metal master pack and such more

Ibanez Jumpstart JS40 Guitar Package

The Jumpstart Package has everything you need to get started playing now. Although the Jumpstart is affordable it is far from being a generic starter package. You get a quality Ibanez GRX electric guitar that has been set up and inspected according to the same standards as the most expensive Ibanez. You also get a great sounding, 10 watt amp with switchable boost and 3-band EQ, gigbag, tuner, strap, strings, pick, and instructional DVD.

Re: What Electric Guitar Package for beginner?

Ibanez sucks babe, im sorry to say but all you guys need to realize gibson is top of the line and esp is right next to em, if you cant afford a Ltd m-10 package you can most definatly afford a epiphone package, and to the lazy fuk who said dont buy new, go used, dont listen to him cause you dont know where the hell its been, whats happened to it, you dont know if its all soldered together inside or not, face it people arent trustworthy these days, take it from a pro guitar builder and refinisher that you want a new Ltd m-10 or an epiphone package of your choice, Trevor

Hey, i found a good deal.. i think

My friend and i are having a comptetion on who can get the money for this guitar first. he's selling it for 92 american. Thats 150 canadian. It's a 70's Ibanez Destroyer. it was bought a wwhhiille back. Is it a good price?

Re: Hey, i found a good deal.. i think

dude buy it, 70's ibanez destroyers are sweet, they rock out nice, they are friggin sweet, if its bolt on itll have a bitchy distortion and will kick ass, but if its set neck, have it checked out cause the 70's explorers had neck issues bein set necks

String breakage problem

I own a Yamaha Pacifica and the high strings keep on snapping, usually on the nut. Are there any add -ons or something i could use to help stop this happening, or should i upgrade the machineheads or something? i dont want to get another guitar instead. Thanks

Re: String breakage problem

have you checked the nut? made sure that it is nicely filed off? are you tuning to the correct key? do you use a tuner?

Re: String breakage problem

the nut is smooth, and i tune it in standard. Thanks for replying

Re: String breakage problem

Well lee tried this time but i figure ill do my share, Ernie ball super slinky strings have never broken on me, NEVER, still have mine from 3 months of non stop playing, try these configurations, 22 frets or less, ERNIE BALL HYBRID SLINKY they have a 10 gauge e a and d string, the rest a 9 gauge strings, great for solos and rhythm, second choice, 24 frets ERNIE BALL super slinky strings with a under 9 gauge configuration setting being 9 11 16 24 32 42, these are awesome for 24 fret guitars and solos and shit, now 3rd choice is a lil weird but it could be your bridge, where the strings hit the bridge after the adjustable bridge tuners,file it down a little bit there and it works sometimes, if these dont work email me at korvetluvr@yahoo.com and ill diagnose somethin for ya

Re: String breakage problem

he said the strings mostly break at the nut, how is adjusting the bridge going to solve anything? i simply told the guy some simple things that may be breaking his strings, didnt see anyone else helping him.

Re: String breakage problem

IM just sayin i had the same problem i said you attempted and he said it didnt work wow, im not sayin your wrong because that does it too, but my charvel did that alot, and it doesnt anymore cause i sanded the bridge a bit, never said what you said doesnt work
: he said the strings mostly break at the nut, how is adjusting the bridge going to solve anything? i simply told the guy some simple things that may be breaking his strings, didnt see anyone else helping him.

Re: String breakage problem

You might try a roller nut. Its inexpensive to add and it will help with your problem.. good luck...

Studio Les Paul

I am on the verge of buying a Gisbon Les Paul off of eBay, and as I am inexperienced in the uber-technical world of guitars, I was wondering as to why the Studio Les Pauls all seem to be much less then their other Les Paul brothers. The description says that they are GIBSON, and not Epiphone. Please help me if you can

Re: Studio Les Paul

the body of the guitar is thinner than a standard les paul
there is no binding on the neck or body
volume and tone knobs are different
but saying that you still get the gibson killer tone and it will knock spots off an epi anyday

Re: Studio Les Paul

Again lee is wrong, studios have two things different because mine has white bindings and i bought it new, first theing being that the body is actually smaller and thinner by a little half an inch, the body is considerably smaller, if you have your strap high up, youll notice that the body isnt eatin your armpit, second thing being it carries smaller humbucklers though you wouldnt notice it, but you cant exchange the humbucklers for stage use, hence the name studio, again lee bites the dust

Re: Studio Les Paul

*cough*bullshit*cough* I dunno what kind of magical Les Paul Studio you have, but they are not made with binding. I've worked at a guitar store for years and we've always carried the studio, and i have never seen one with binding. and on the gibson website there are none with binding. so unless you got it from the custom shop, you dont have a les paul studio.

Re: Studio Les Paul

OK thanks to all of you, even to Lee who apparently doesn't know anything at all. Would it be safe to buy a Les Paul off of eBay? The other day I picked one up at a guitar shop and started playing it, and it was like... Some amazing feeling that my Strat could never give.

Re: Studio Les Paul

Well aparently the guy i bought it off forgot to mention that the truss rod cover, tuners, and everything else were studipo parts and that he shaved the body like a bastard, but hey i dont care, i sold mine, its safe to buy em off of ebay if you can get somen sort of recording, cause you dont know if people fuck with em or not, especially when they say, bids are as is, no returns, sorry for the little mistake *cough*fuck you*cough*

Re: Studio Les Paul

Correction, i called the guy last night and he says that its a studio with bindings he had out on by his friend named mike mefford and says that he did it because he "accidentally" bashed the guitar against his bedpost (how the hell you do that couldnt tell ya) so he had the bindings cover the nick in the edge and had the guitar completely reapinted at gibson custom shop, somethin bout a total of 1,600 dollars worth of a paint job

Re: Studio Les Paul

Correction::: Gibson studio les paul- no binding. pure and simple, if it says studio and has binding then its some oddball one off custom guitar, not a studio. next you'll be telling us it has 3 pickups binding on the headstock and a gold plated truss rod.

Re: Studio Les Paul

never said 3 pickups and not gold plated truss rod so what made a mistake and they guy fucked around with it, i dont know if its even a studio, get over it

Re: Studio Les Paul

I dont have a problem with you, you shouldnt have one with me, im just stating the facts and what i had was bindg=ings, like i siad, i cant research it cause i sold it, and besides the point of that everything besaides the bindings part was exactly true cant break that evidence cause the explorers are just like that thinner and smaller body that is shaved down to a smaller size, no bindings, my bad, but whatever man

To quote your first post "Again lee is wrong, studios have two things different because mine has white bindings and i bought it new"....first you said you bought it new...now you're saying you bought it used. Something tells me you've never even owned one.

Re: Studio Les Paul
