Tempting, very tempting! Gotta find one first.
#2
Great for bored/itchy fingers when the mood takes, thanks.

I saw these today. They are old stock from a few months back and put back on the shelves to clear, I think. Shocking quality, though, if you open the box to peek inside. Crooked frets, poor varnish finish, patchy painted fretboard. Make a nice bonfire, mind.
#4
**** quality, but Still cheaper than a plastic 1 (guitar hero)
#5
You can get a surprisingly good acoustic from Argos for £20, if you want something a bit better for a bit more. I'll be getting one for the Download campsite :D

Looks like a Martin OMC16RE from the picture - Bargain!

If your thinking of learning the guitar, go to a guitar shop first and try better quality guitars. Beginners that buy cheep guitars are often put off, because the action is too high (strings are hard to press down), Machine heads are rubbish (have to keep retuning) Fret board is warped and/or guitar resonance is poor. You can often buy reasonable second hand guitars or try and borrow / rent one to beggin with.

agree spend a little more or you will be put off by the constant slicing of the pads on your fingers. After trying these i paid 25 for an electric from ebuyer the difference is unbelieveable just by paying an extra £10.

Totally agree with flames. These guitars should be considered at best ornamental. I got a Burstwood strat from Asda for my daughter for her birthday with the amp and accessories. The amp was ok but the Guitar woundn't even stay in tune for longer than a minute. I had to shove a block of old timber under the trem mechanism to even achieve that! I would have taken it back but my daughter, who didn't know any better, liked it. A nicely painted plank. It reminded me of starter guitars from 35 years ago. Avoid.

Nothing beats Ovation.

But for a learner or a gift (for example im about to start teaching my daughter how to play guitar) is probably ideal.
Just a note for learners tho - typically a nylon strung classical acoustic is better as its easier on the fingers. Those digits need to toughen up considerably before a steel strung is an option.

Can get a acoustic pickup or a bottlecap for under £20 at dolphin.

Actually - would have to agree on this point. But for less than £100 you can find some quality acoustics out there. The problem is that with young learners its hard to work out if the guitar sessions are a phase or a long term interest. Like most things with kids, you want to let them at least have the opportunity to test the waters and some folks cant justify a higher priced guitar until they know its a long term interest.

Personally I invest in good gear but shop around for AGES as im quite fussy. The action issue you mention is very common and just unnecessary as even a cheap manufacturer can sort this out with an extra 5minutes effort on build.

My advice is buy the right instrument for the style they wanna play. If they have no interest in classical guitar then buying them a classical guitar just because the strings are nylon seems counter intuitive.
#13
yes, i tried of these in adsa. Truly awful, and I'm very forgiving. I think the cardboard box sounded better. I honestly would not want it for £1.

cr@ p guitars are the biggest single thing that put new guitarists off, especially children.

For a learner the worst thing you can do is buy them a guitar like this.

I got my son a Vintage travel guitar for £99, best £99 I've spent.

But beware, those Stage guitars are also a lottery. I got that guitar which came with a ridiculously high action and a non-functioning truss rod, so no way to lower the strings. It was not broken, just that the build quality was so poor that the rod could get no purchase on the neck. Ok to thrash around on the upper frets, but the machine heads also cannot keep the strings in tune for more than a hour or so. Apart from that, it looks a heck of a lot better than the Asda guitars.

...check out 'Ashton'...great Australian designed 'starter' packages...most come with an all important ( electronic ) Tuner BUILT-IN to the body !...OK not in the OP's price range...but do heed the advice of other posters above...FORGET cheap guitars to learn with...you'll regret it...I got me a Semi-Acoustic...no regrets...best sounding guitar in the classroom !
