You just reminded me of what happened to me on the guitar shop another day. I was playing in a closed sound proof room and a mom and a kid asked to see me playing from the inside.
I started playing sultans of swing and I could see how much interested he was. biggrin.gif

If electric guitar is what catch him, just give it instead of acoustic. But be sure to watch out for volumes. Kids' ears are much more sensible than ours and even us adults exaggerate on volumes sometimes.. . wink.gif

I suggest nylon strings for beginners, especially children.. steel strings may harm their fingers smile.gif

I'd also say start with acoustic, just like Dejan. Electric is easier, but it's better to start with a harder to play guitar and go easier and easier, that the other way around!

Also, electric guitars are often more expensive, and with kids, it's possible he plays it for two weeks and then stops, you never know! Also, try getting a scaled guitar!

EDIT: don't you think $250 is quit a lot for a first guitar?

I bought a guitar for my little brother for his birthday it's an ESP LTD something biggrin.gif The price was acceptable for a first guitar 299 euros would be close to 500 dollars. Gus is right tough i gave my brother an electric guitar because he always wanted to make noise with my squier with my amp on full distortion laugh.gif
