Ibanez Acoustic Jam Pack

Coming in at #10 is The Ibanez Acoustic Jam Pack. It's really a deal you just can't beat. A setup like this for the money is ridiculous. It's about $149 delivered and it has everything. Tuner, case, strap, etc.....plus it plays and sounds nice. Can't go wrong with this setup if you are just starting out.


PLEASE NOTE: I do recommend with the lower end starter guitars, have a teacher or player take a look at the action and check for "dead frets." It just happens sometimes with the quality control on some of the instruments in the super low price points.
