sounds like a starter guitar, did u get it in an amp package?
Chances are its nothing special and i have never heard of a Burswood before, but thats just me.

Just remember aslong as its got some strings u can rock out.

Couple things.

a) Yeah, it's the wrong section. Don't leap on him for it. He doesn't know. Inform him once and let it be.

b) If this is your first guitar, it doesn't matter that it's average. Learner guitars aren't meant to be superstar. Learn on it, and enjoy.

c) Welcome to the boards.

Exactly. I always advise against people going out and buying expensive guitars when they're just beginners. You'll sound shit no matter what you play on, so it's best to wait for the better guitars until your skill's at a level where you'll actually be able to hear it reflected in the instrument.

And welcome.

i was lucky i got a used fender strat, a real one, not a squire and really it wasn't used some guy bought it and never learned how to play, so it's a brand new strat and it came free with a hardshell case

whats the whole point in starter guitars? becouse they are created without mutch eye for detail and perfection they are more difficult to tune and sound shitty. these things would make playing guitar more difficult and thats the last thing a starter needs. my advice to all starters: make shure that when you are buying your guitar you take someone with you who knows a lot about them, and make shure you don't buy a realy cheap one. don't EVER take the advice of the sellers couse they will allways try to get you to buy the starter pack.

Read my post in this thread. Wasting money on a decent guitar for starters really will do no good. Especially considering how a lot of people give up not long after beginning to learn an instrument; it really is a waste of money.

you have a point there, but then again if you are not shure about playing guitar you should'not have bought a guitar at al (not even a starter).
another tip: buy an acoustic guitar first and learn to play unplugged, that way its cheaper so you can sea if you REALY like playing it (you can only tell if you like playing guitar after obout a year and a half, becouse with playing guitar, as with every instrument, learning the basics sucks.) and then you can strart thinking about buying an electric one (then don't buy the starter but go straight for the one you realy like the way it sounds, feels and looks).

yeah it's true, i gave up very early and didn't play for a month or two, mainly because i had no amp, but still i never wanted to play it, but eventually i started and learned.

I'd actually advise someone who isn't sure they want to pick up the instrument to rent a guitar from their music shop. That's what I did, and I'm glad. It was only like 25$ a month, and the money went towards the purchase of my now-owned guitar.

Starter packs are made for people who dont know what to buy or what they like. The guitars are simple and cheap to make. After learning on a starter guitar you should then upgrade slowly.

You've got to start somewhere.

I found that the best way to start playing guitar is to buy a medium priced acoustic, play for about 4 months or so then buy a really nice electric. That way you dont have to worry about amps or technical problems and you are giving yourself time to educate your self about what to buy and where ect.

My tip for starters is don't bother...give up now, before you spend the money. Go win one or something...[/sarcasm]
