I just thought it would be cool for him to have a electric acoustic but if its not then thats fine.

Dont get him an Ibanez. Make sure it has a solid top, and the acoustic-electric with the round back are uncomfortable in my opinion. Maybe go to a guitar store and check them out yourself.

Also, if he's into finger picking, he might be interested in a classical guitar. Maybe you should just take him to the guitar store with you and just play around, see what he likes.

check out the yamahas in your price range.

for 180 bucks

for 250

just throw a set of elixirs on either of those and youll have about the best sound your gonna get for less than 300 bucks. i went with a buddy of mine guitar shopping and remember trying all the yamahas in your price range and they were very impressive.
dave matthews might.. just.. be.. god..

yes, pointing it at your head will send the sound towards your head.


it's the same with guns too, before you go testing that one.

You really love your hummingbird huh? I hate it.

Not trying to piss u off, but just proving a point that one guitar is not for everyone.

I like a wider nut width and a fatter neck than the hummingbird has to offer. These are things everyone needs to consider before buying what someone else think is an effing great guitar.
