    any cheap guitar is good for starting pretty much. once you know youre going to stick with it start thinking about stepping up to a nicer one.

    Well if you're just starting, the quality of the guitar isn't too big of a deal. I konw that the guitars sold where I take lessons are way more expensive than $100, and that's not including the amp. I'd say, sure, go for it. And if, in a few years, you are no longer satisfied with the quality of your guitar (which is how I feel about mine now), then get a new one.

    You may not even end up liking the guitar, and it would be a shame to buy a really expensive guitar for nothing.

    So I would say yes, go with that guitar.

    Well if you want to start UBER low then go with that one, but imo its a piece of sh1t

    anyways if you looking for packages theres are fender squire packs and stratocaster packs for about 250 - 300 Cdn cheaper if your from the us

    but imo you dont need to buy a package

    for 250 - 300 you can get a decent guitar like a epiphone SG and a cheap amp 10 - 20 watts (believe me 20watts could shake you whole neighborhood).

    you dont need a ---- load of books and straps or w/e the basics is all you need for a begginer

    so in my opinion get a guitar that you will actually like

    fender (more classical clean sound)
    epiphone (same as fender but a little heavier)
    jackson (can range from clascial to metal)
    ibanez (same as jackson)

    so anyways nice guitar 200 - 250cdn / cheap amp 60 - 90$ amp and case +cords which is another 20 - 30 dollars


    bout that and you should be set :D BUT MAKE SURE YOU TRY OUT THE GUITAR BEFORE YOU BUY IT XD

    I agree with Revolt. Though not so much on the guitar opinions. But hey that's why the call them opinions.

    A Fender Squire is a really good starting guitar. I've never heard of V-Tone, and I've played guitar for 12 years. Behringer makes decent amps, though a Peavy is much more bang for your buck.
