Anybody notice that the new amp is cheaper than the open box one. :?:

Here are some more Lefty beginner packages:

I've bought from Adirondack a few times and have been very happy. I started with the Samick Malibu beginner package - no complaints (well, I do hope to get a better amp one of these days :D )

As someone else mentioned also: You need to start some where!

Good luck

Yeah, I noticed that as well. Odd.

They base the discount on the purchase price. Sometimes cost goes down and screwy things happen.

Wow, nice find there.

Those seem really geared toward hard rock/metal, which is good, but I'd like to play softer stuff as well...will those be suitable enough for that too?

I have always been happy with their pricing. I wish they where in charge of gas (fuel type) prices.

I know, it seems like people are ignoring your question. The answer is yes, it should be OK. Most guitars are not genre specific until it is time to advertise to what ever market is spending.

Yes they will be fine for softer stuff.

It can be a little difficult to do full open chords on a humbucker equiped guitars as they tend to get a little muddy. But you should be okay for most stuff.

Alright, thanks for all the help guys. I think I'll be going with the guitar and amp that Nick suggested.
