Thanks for all of the advice guys!
Here's the deal, I like everything, but I am more interested in playing metal/rock of all kinds.
I was told by a good friend that has been playing for about 15 years, that I would be better off getting an acoustic to learn the basics and technique and it would make me a better guitar player. He has also been in a few locally successful bands in Houston, so I really trust his opinion, but I also really trust some of your opinions as well.
I prefer to this as I am a perfectionists.
I know what y'all mean about an electric guitar and I will eventually get one, no doubt.
I am self taught in so many areas, that I may try out the guitar for dummies.
I also want to learn with my son as I think it would be awesome.
My bud thinks I will have no issue playing guitar as they thought violin was harder. Who knows.
I am about to sell all my Rockband/Guitar hero stuff and use that money to start a fund for an acoustic guitar, I think.
I just know absolutely nothing about them and their price points, so I have no idea.
MY thought; the best bang for my buck regardless if that buck is $100 or $1000.
Thanks again for your input and keep with it as my ears are open and my mouth is shut.
