It's my sister's birthday soon and I was hoping to maybe get her an electric guitar. She's only a beginner when it comes to playing, but she's been practicing on-and-off using the same two-decade old acoustic guitar, and she's expressed interest in going electric. Problem is, I don't know a lot about musical instruments myself (despite mashing around with sequencers a lot), so I'd like some advice with regard to what to buy. It has to be a surprise, so I can't consult her directly, though I know Sis not to be very picky.
In summary, it should be:
- Cheap, or moderately cheap.
- Suited to beginners.
Anybody got an idea of what I should be looking out for? Like, any specific brands? Or is this altogether too crazy an idea?
