    no mate you want one of these "squier frontman starter kit"

    Depends on your budget. The ]yamaha pacifica is supposed to be a good beginners guitar. Does it have to be an electric?

    yeah electric so mrs dont complain too much, looking to spend no more than £100 really

    Suggest you opt for this one

    if that's ya budget, then I'd avoid a guitar with tremolo arm as you'll never get it to tune up properly and you'll get fed up with always being out of tune, the above Epiphone has a fixed bridge and should stay in tune okay :-D

    thanks, so would you say this is a lot better deal for a few extra quid ?

    Is is more difficult to learn on an electric compared to an acoustic? The electric does have the advantage of just plugging in the headphones but I thought acoustic are easier to learn on...........

    If I get an acoustic I'd go for the Yamaha F310 has some great reviews.

    There is a review of the Pacifica on Youtube - same chap does one for the F310 too

    Be interested to know which is best to learn on.
