Hi to all out there... I have had a great love for the guitar for as long as I can remember. I retired a year ago and still have not picked up a guitar or taken the time to learn... I have decided it is time .. Basically I would like some advise as to what to buy..Electric or ?? what kind of small amp, so on and so on...I figure at 55 I had better get started..Any input or sugestions greatly appreciated..Till then Fuzzy

you should probably buy an acoustic first, it will build up your finger strength, strings on an acoustic are stronger/thicker, so when you switch to elecrtric you'll have an advantage
my gear:
gibson les paul classic
epiphoen les paul standard
fender standard fat strat
peavey valveking 112
boss me-50
crybaby original wah

this guitar should be good, and it's not too expensive

and one of these amps should be good, depending on how much you want to spend

EDIT: unless you want an acoustic... get this one, i have the slightly cheaper version (which they won't have in stock until September), and it's amazing (especially for the price)
