Welcome to the forum.

Personally, I wouldn't get the Sears guitar.

Fender also makes Squire "starter packs" that you might want to look at. I think that they are about $150.00 or so.

Also, you could consider starting a thread in the buy/sell part of this forum (can't remember the actual name of this area at the moment) as there are often great deals on used gear, or people that will respond to your thread as they have gear that they want to sell.


Good Luck on whatever you choose. ENJOY :rockon2:

For a first guitar you are better off going into the store and having a salesman get you a few different guitars from starters packs to check out. Have them play through the guitars, tell them what styles of music you want to use it for, try a few in your hand just to see how it feels.

Most stores will give you a free set up when you buy a guitar, so you can leave the store knowing your new guitar is going to be as easy to learn on as possible.

You are in Brampton. You aren't far from the Long and McQuade (http://www.longandmcquade.com) in Brampton or The Guitar Shop (http://www.theguitarshop.ca/) and LA Music (http://www.lamusic.ca/) in Port Credit.

This forum is a great resource for learning everything about guitars and you can score some great deals through mail order, but for your first guitar, I always find it best to go to your local store and start building a relationship with them by having them show you the wealth of options out there for the new guitarist.
