Im looking into buying a beginner guitar for my dad for christmas. I was wondering what the cheapest guitar is so that I can buy that and should I buy him an acoustic or electric?

his favorite bands are ac/dc, kansas, and boston probably so my idea was an electric at first but i wanted to see what your opinions were

Christmas did you say?
I better start to rhyme!
You know what Christmas calls for!
It's rockin' guitar time!

You need a good guitar
for your dad, do you say?
then I need one simple answer
what type of music would he play?

If he's a country man
he'll like acoustic sound
they can do almost anything
they're good for all-around

But if your dad likes rock N roll,
he'll dig electric tone
so he can jam all day and night
and rock his fingers to the bone!

So tell me what he likes to play
and I'll finish this haiku
just drop me a quick answer here
and I'll get back to you.....

I kinda like the Epi SG...used one the other day. Pretty nice. Put some Gibson If you could put some Gibson pickups in it, it could be a nice guitar.
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!

Yeah, either a G-400 or RG321 (he can try the RG2EX2, but get the other since it's more versatile). He should also try Squier Telecasters (from Affinity series and up) to see whether the C-style neck and brighter sounds are right for him.

Maybe go to Rondo?

Switch Stealth Wild.

Lots of resonance.

Not made of wood so it makes a good beginner guitar because it can take a beating.



If you want to go the acoustic route, buy this.
