I bought this as a starter electric after having learned on an acoustic. It's great for the price. The guitar: -After a few days I could tell the tremolo bar wasn't going to last very long so I completely unscrewed it and do not use it. So don't plan on using that heavily for very long, it's not made in a fashion to last. That's one of the ways the price is kept down on the guitar, I'm sure. The pickups and bridge definitely will need adjustment so find a good place online to learn about that, or hopefully you know someone who knows guitars or you know them yourself. After a few months one of the wires to the jack broke off, somehow, and I did have to solder that back on. I couldn't say how common of a problem that might be. It's recommendable that you keep the jack input nut tight to the guitar and don't let it get to where the jack can spin freely at all. Otherwise the tension will go to the wires connecting to the jack and that's probably what caused my problem, so lesson learned. If you can afford a higher quality strat and don't want any little hassles like that, then spend the extra bucks. But, if you're like me, and willing to put a tiny bit of work into keeping it working, the price to quality ratio is definitely in your favor. It's probably better for a first electric than something higher quality and more expensive anyways, because you're not so afraid to tinker around with it, take it apart and find out what makes it tick. I've had it for about 3 months now and have consistently been playing it at the very least 7 hours a week and still happy. The Amp: -It does its purpose. Not a very good amp, but it's solid, and doesn't have much to complain about. You know what you're getting there; A cheap little amp. The guitar strap: -Don't trust it. It will slip off the strap buttons; First day. Get some strap locks for it, or get a better strap. The tuner: -completely cheap and not even worth using. I put it up against a good/reliable tuner and it didn't even have the correct read on the pitch. I'm not sure what's going on there but I basically threw mine away. It looked like it was about to fall apart out of the package, basically. I recommend buying a different one straight away before the guitar even arrives, or tuning by ear is better. The four stars are based on the assumption that you're someone who is willing to get the screwdriver out once or twice and mess around with it. It's based on the fact that you're not needing the little things like the strap and tuner to be perfect out of the box. If that's for some reason important to you, then consider this a 2-star review. The four stars is also probably based on the fact that you either A: know some things about guitars already, B: know someone else who does, or C: are very resourceful and good at making something cheap work to its greatest ability. Hope this has been helpful.
