Yeah, when I got my first guitar it was a really POS Harmony acoustic. The neck, the frets, the fretboard just sucked. It was straight, but was murder
on my fingers and definitely impeded wanting to progress playing. Of course, the tone was crappy too, because it was a laminate, but I recorded a song
or two with it (straight up 1930s blues type stuff, for which it was GREAT lol). Then when I got my first electric is when I really started
progressing, because that was the style music I wanted to play. And I came a long way fast.
Then, I got my Hummingbird and started playing again, that's when everything changed for me with acoustics. Screw how bad my fingers, that thing is so
sweet, boy does it sing and made me enjoy playing again and is my go-to for comp if I'm not keys.
And my bad, I was thinking the 6-string you are giving him was acoustic, in which case the silk and steel would be preferable. I've always like first
Dean Markley (blue steel), and recently started trying Ernie Ball, so yeah, light gauge on his fingers would be best. They've definitely come a long
way with those little combo amps, hell even with the squier line they've got some awesome upper end guitars at decent prices.
Don't delay man, hook him up!
