GotDeeBlues - the guitar setup came with a separate electronic tuner that does have the plugin port. I am sure that I will get better with tuning as time and practice goes on. Thanks for the reply and input...

Well, I know it's been a few weeks since I posted - work has kept me from my new guitar and from allowing me some quality time with it. So far I have been fairly happy with the quality of guitar for the price that I paid for the setup ($199.95) with free shipping. I did notice some some "lacquer over spray" from the factory. Either it got over spray on it after they polished it or they failed to polish in a couple of areas - a rough feel. Now I found this funny. I spent probably 3 nights trying to get the guitar in tune with the included Epiphone electronic tuner. I wanted to pull my hair out!! Went out and purchased some $5.50 Martin strings at the local Hastings music store. They did seem to improve the sound. Remember I don't know what in the heck I am doing! I finally got a chance earlier in the week to log onto guitarforbeginners and use the online midi tuner. I think I got them fairly close for now. I went through the included Epiphone DVD training video - it was O.K. I have observed so far that there is a lot to a guitar when it comes to playing. I have never really played a musical instrument in my life before. I really have a lot to learn. I looked at the lessons for the true beginners on this site. I plan on trying to follow these lessons and see how it goes. I have attached some photos of my Epiphone PR4E setup. I hope it might help someone else in the decision making process. First time uploading - so I hope it works....

Anxiously awaiting the delivery of my new guitar!! I made the plunge and ordered the Epiphone 4E starter kit. I want to thank everyone for their valuable input. I should get it :yeahhh: in on Thursday. Will I be able to give any valuable input as to how it plays or it's quality?? Ahh.. Probably not!! Because I don't what in the heck I will be doing!! But - I am sure going to give it a go at learning!!

Thanks Again Everyone....

Hey - thank you for all of the replies and input. Today I stopped by one the two better equipped music stores today. Unfortunately, they did not carry Epiphone nor did they really have any opinions on them. The electric acoustic guitars that they carried started at around $250.00 - just for the guitar. My budget really is around the $200.00 range. I am usually the type of person who wants the better quality products but in this case I want to make sure I will have a solid interest in learning the guitar before I spend a lot of money on one. Or another the way that I have looked at it is if I only had a dollar to spend and I found an old used guitar at the goodwill store for a $1.00 - I would feel very lucky to have found that guitar. I could at least learn the basics and fundamentals on that guitar and then worry about sound quality at a later time. I will keep you posted on my endeavors. Thanks again.....
