The Peavey Raptor guitar package is an outstanding value.

Peavey's Raptor guitar is a made in China Stratocaster-like guitar.The quality, while not outstanding, exhibits high levels of workmanship.There are some minor finish issues, but the guitar is solid, and sounds and plays good.Like every electric guitar I've laid hands on, it requires a set up when new (about $40 at my local guitar shop).Once set up, the action is great and the sound rivals lower-end Fender Squiers and Mexican-made Fender standards.

The amp included in the package is serviceable, especially for a beginner.It's clean channel is solid, while the overdrive channel is satisfactory.Because it's a solid state guitar, the overdrive has an on/off type of feel and doesn't vary much with playing dynamics.It will get you started, but will leave you wanting more before too long.However, since it doesn't add much to the cost of the package (the guitar typically sells for about $120 by itself), it's a pretty good deal.

If you're interested in picking up an electric guitar to try it out, this is an inexpensive, quality package.

LEVEL CONTROL - The level control for each channel sends the signal to the master mix bus. Typical operation is between 4 and 8 (dependent upon the input devices) but should be lower than the master level.
