The main thing about Yamaha that is impressive is the action. These cheap Made in China Fenders and Gibson have so high action that they are pretty much unplayable and they will be a bad experience for a new guitarist. Barre chords? Forget it, unless you pay another 50 quid on a good setup.
I learned to play on a battered £15 second hand acoustic and I would recommend finding one as cheap as possible. Firstly, I found it easier to press the strings on the used guitar and secondly, if you decide you don’t want to keep it up then next to no money has been lost. I used the money I saved to put towards a decent ‘proper’first guitar that I appreciated so much more for already being able to play (y) I’m sure others will say different, just my 10p’s worth...
If you want to turn off someone new to playing guitar, buy this.
Just because it says "by Gibson" in the title doesn't mean it's any good, as others have said a budget Yamaha would probably be a much better choice for not that much more money
I'd get a second hand that's easier to play. These tend to have a relatively high bridge if I'm thinking of the right one and it's hard to physically press the stings onto the frets for a beginner.
