My son has decided he wants to learn how to play a little. Now he not some little kid as he just turned 21. I am really glad he wants to learn to play and will show him some things and get him something to get him started (kind of a birthday present). I have gone down to GC and played a bunch of Epiphones, Ibanez and Squires. I am not looking to spend too much ($200 max). I liked one Epiphone Les Paul Special II but the body was damaged. It had a great neck and sounded pretty nice. I did not like the Squire at all but I have never been a big fan of Fenders. The one I have found that I liked for the price was the Ibanez GAX70. It has 2 HB's and a really nice neck and Agathis body (kind of a cheaper Mahogany like wood). This seems like it can be a good starter and if he continues a few mods might make it a much nicer guitar. Any opinions?
