a mid-range starter of any brand that feels good about $150-$200 for a guitar and $150 to $200 for a decent solid state amp with several built in effects to tool around with, I feel would be the most bang for your buck way of getting started, rather than getting something that is the bare minimum and getting frustraded because your notes are falling off into nothingness halfway between the first and the second one and your tone and sustain sounds like rusty nails

for a guitar and
for an amp
IMO - Dean would be better than getting an ibanez or a squire, and I honestly don't know anything about Rogue guitars. That amp is going to be way better than the one that comes with the squire pack and will probably give you the best versatility for tone

Sad truth: Any guitar under $500 will completely blow ass.
Happy truth: If you want to play badly enough you'll play till your fingers bleed no matter how bad the guitar is, then in time the right guitar will come.
*Please make 335 drop in my lap now...
all the instructional booklet you'll need you can find online. I'd suggest ultimate-guitar.com has scales, chord patterns and all the tabs you could want.
As for a cord, get a
These monster cables are 100% insured for life, you can take your cable into a guitar center and say, this cable went bad, and they will hand you a new one.
Picks are cheap - you can use a shoelace for a strap until you can pull a $20 together for a nice black nylon
My 1st guitar (after i decided to stick with it) i got at a local place and got it used. Was a Dean for like $100. Even got a Peavy amp with it too. Played and sounded great. This was back in 1994 though, hehe. Dam WoW though, i slacked off playing cause of this game, grrrrrrr. I fiddle around every now and then. Still have my Ibanez RG 270 though after 15 years.
i know nothing about rogue guitars. I wouldn't honestly trust any starter pack amp though. There are a lot of great amps for under $100 in the 15watt practice amp range.
Lot of money, but it's a lot of guitar. Beautiful piece of art that guitar is. Finally got good enough at playing that I decided to spend some real money.
well thank you all for you help,ill officially decide on tuesday and let you all know how it goes..may even upload a pic or two
thank you all.
^^ I have an EMG81 and 85 in her now... she is a sexy bitch
Craigslist for a real Fender Standard Strat. Even if it's got scratches and looks a little beat up, the quality you'll get will be absolutely miles above anything squire or any other mid-range guitar will give you. Choose a maple neck if you can. I shit you not, it is 100% worth it to wait for more money if you think you'll be strapped for cash.
Guitars are not like computers, the difference in quality is far easily noticed and playability is ridiculously better. A solid, higher-quality guitar will last you 10 years if you don't warp the neck, clean it often and play it often.
thank you all for your help,now that ive been thinking ive also been considering an acoustic,and suggestions on one? nylon or metal too?
