My son is 8 and has been showing some interest in learning guitar. I've taught him a couple of chords, and have him practicing on making the shapes and getting clean sounds. Which leads me to my question: I want to get him his own guitar for Christmas, but I'm torn on what to get him. He usually practices on either my Dean acoustic or my Douglas thinline tele. He can hold the tele more comfortably, but frets chords cleaner on the acoustic at this point. I know he would pick an electric if asked, but I'm not sure what would be the best for his development. I'm considering either the SX RST starter pack, or the SX Furrian from Rondo, or possibly a used Squire. Not sure yet on an acoustic option.
