    I work retail at a store that sells primarily clothing but changes things up at Xmas time and carries all kinds of things. Included in this xmas change up are a couple guitars. One acoustic and one electric, both complete crap. the most troubling thing is that most of the people that buy these things are just not aware that there is anything else out there for a comparable price that is actually a playable instrument. I mean you can get quite a bit for just a tad more the 150 bucks they were asking for these pretty much useless starter packs.

    Yeah. We kinda had it "easier" in the 1960s and even the 1970s because you basically knew in advance, under a certain price, guaranteed garbage.

    But now, we see perfectly playable and basically unsalvageable guitars sold side by side, and very similar prices. This has got to be confusing to parents looking for stuff for their kids. Hey, parents! Come see us, first!! :^)
