Was the guitar supplied double boxed, sealed and inside its padded gig bag? When you opened the box was there a sheet of paper listing the contents?
If not it would appear the guitar might have been previously unpacked by Amazon for some reason.

that's not great, which is annoying when you've just got something new... but nick's right to question how the guitar was packaged.
realistically I would always put a new set of strings on a guitar, as they will have been on that guitar from anything from a month upwards I would think.
at the end of the day it's a £5 fix to what sounds like an otherwise great guitar... but of course you could insist that Amazon supply you the strings, or refund you the cost of them.

The package appeared to be fine. It was packed in a gigbag with styrofoam, manifest, etc. in a sealed cardboard box. Wasn't double boxed, but the outer box should have been ok. Not sure about the E-string snapping during shipping, but the G string must have been that way before they packed the guitar.
