$150 Yamahaha F310 likely playable out of the box. If the strings are a little too high spend 40 on a simple setup. It will be worth it for a beginner. I bought one to strum while my old love Harmony is under reconstruction and I think the Yamaha is a real bargain. Spruce and Mahogany as a 6 string should be. These are far above the crappy beginner guitars of my youth.
