I've got 4 racks full of 'Starter Guitars'. Granted, any would be excellent to start your guitar journey learning on. It's too bad that 'Starter' has developed such a bed connotation sometimes it really pi$$es me off in the sales description. Just because a guitar plays very easy, great action and decent stock body/neck/sound it gets put into the starter pile. It goes back to my argument, what is enough? All of my guitars allow for a far better player than I or than I'll ever be. I won't name them all here, I just did it in the appreciate cheap guitars thread. I'm extremely pleased and well satisfied with my starter guitars. Sure I get serious gass, but it's for Peavey Raptor I & Limited's, Washburn Maverick BT's, Austin's, Jay Turser's, and Firefly's.
