I think the downvotes are going to pile on because people think you're referring to the coupons given out by @Jumbowoot this morning. I pity your situation :)

lol i also thought this was yet another thread about jumbowoot's coupons. the other times, duplicate threads were deleted. but i guess since the 4 out now are different enough, not just "thanks jumbowoot!", they stayed

@capguncowboy: Help? I need to know if this will be good for a beginner. I also want to add a set of strings (from the site) for the beginner. I was thinking steel lighter to medium gauge. http://www.godirectmusic.com/dean-vendetta-xm-tremolo-wamp-p-30379.html

@capguncowboy: Never mind my question was ment for the OP @cowboydann:,,, To be fair my PC is pissed and the resolution is terrible making it difficult to read. I just picked up a set of Dean Markley Blue Steel Electric Light. No I did not get that coupon.

@caffeine_dude: I'll be straight honest with you and give you my 100% opinion on the best route. IMO the guitar doesn't matter for the first year or two. What's really important is getting down chords and strumming patterns and you can learn that on a 50 dollar student guitar on ebay. I like acoustic because it builds up finger strength and callouses faster. If you're buying this for a kid electric might be better though, I know when I first picked up an acoustic at a young age I was put off for 2 years because of how difficult it was to get chords to sound nice on it.

I really need to fix my tuners and re-string my guitar so I can get back to practicing. I've lost my chops big time...

If you already have purchased that set then I think it will do perfectly and should at least have some decent sound out of it for the money. This is very good if you want to continue playing as you don't need to buy that second guitar 6 months-a year later when you can truly tell how bad it sounds.

As far as strings I will just pick up the cheapest set of nylon strings for acoustic. On my electric wicks I really like Ernie Ball Super Slinkys. I play a lot of modest mouse songs and Isaac Brock is very heavy on the tremelo so it just makes for easier bending of strings. Super Slinks might be a good start for electric just because of the smaller string gauge and easier to hit notes.

@cowboydann: Thanks, I would have gotten them, saw the name some where else but could not find them on that site.

I like what the guy at the guitar shop said:
when I said "in a few months when the guitar is sitting there gathering dust, I hope to take it and learn."
He said "when he is good enough for a better guitar you can have his old one."
I said "wow, perfect...then he can teach me"
