    Electric? The Squire set (amp, guitar, gig bag, strap) is often the best bargain going at around $135. By the time you’re good enough to deserve a better system, the amp will be malfunctioning in some way. Replace it first, then later the instrument itself.

    You didn’t say electric or acoustic ? If acoustic I always tell my students to start out with the Yamaha, this new one that’s out on the market has a sweet little sound, I even bought one for myself, and I play classical, when I went to buy a new one I tried this guitar and fell in love with the sound. Now remember if they have five of them try them all, they all have a little different sound and action, so see which one suites the sound and action that you like, good luck with your lessons, bye !!!!!

    Start with acoustic.

    no need for an amp, and it will build callouses faster.

    I recommend a decent Alvarez. Should cost about $200 or so, and is a good enough guitar to last you your life if you want.

    I suggest that if you are beginning from scratch, that you buy acoustic. Acoustic will get your fingers ready for electric. You can probably get a pretty good one for $120 in guitar center if you ask one of the guys there (they are really friendly 🙂

    for electric, you will need a pretty heavy budget & you would also need to buy an amp. So, I truly suggest an acoustic =P

    good luck

    The Squire, the Yahmha, there is also the Dean. The Squire has single coil pickups which are real noisy. I would get humbuckers.

    Get a cheap distortion box and plug in into your stereo. Keep the output of the distortion low (lower than the radio or stereo volume)! At some point, decide to spend a lot of money, don’t just by a lot of crap like I did!
