Standard advice is not to buy a 'kit' or a 'package'.
They may seem like good value but in terms of long-term satisfaction they are not good.
The guitar may be poor quality, or the amp, or the other accessories.
Your best bet is to buy the guitar and amp separately.
A good shop will sell all the things you need and if you are looking to buy several items they may do a deal for accessories, setup of the guitar etc.
They may price match online sellers too.


You are in Brazil right?
What is your total budget for guitar, amp and accessories?

Also note that the info + photo shows Strindberg, so this has nothing to do with Strandberg or Steinberger guitars (which would easily cost 10 times as much ;) )
Guitars: Chevy LP-C (1991), Squier VM Jaguar (2015)
Amp: Fender Mustang I v2 (2015)

So now I'm lost. Because the local shop here doesn't have a luther to make the perfect guitar adjustments for me. And in this AD it says that they do the adjustments (and has good reviews).

I was looking to buy a guitar for R$1,000 ($260) at max, because I'm just starting you know... however I wanna something good. But I think I can pay a little more, depends on the guitar.

Now I see that AMP is a huge part and that would add way more so I don't know man.

I have to confirm with my dad but I think R$1,500 ($390) is the max, guitar + amp. Economy in brazil is not that great.

UPDATE:

It's R$1,000 ($260) max indeed but I can push to $330 (R$ 1,280) to buy this bundle or best offer.

That is my bad - I will edit the thread accordingly.

For that money, it will be crap. The amp will probably be awful. Buy a known brand from a music store.

You don't need to spend $$ on adjustments, any store worth buying from should do that with any new guitar they sell.  These are just tweaks to make it play well for a beginner.

If they don't have a tech onsite (a luthier makes guitars), then they are probably not worth buying from. Servicing and adjustments are basic after sales service.
