Re: Good "Beginner" Guitar Around $250? (For a 13-year-old boy).
[quote=FireEagle;1543989]A PRS SE245 might be a good choice... Shorter scale, 24.5", and pretty versatile. May be a little over your $250 price range though.
The Ibanez SZ320's have a shorter scale, like 25"? Good playing guitars, but meatier neck on them... They have Duncan/Ibanez pickups equivalent to a Distortion bridge and Jazz neck.
If you don't mind a floating bridge, here's a Jackson Fusion EX from the 90's... 24.75" scale, 24 fret, HSS pickups, awesome neck.
Thanks for the reply!
When you say that the SZ320's have a meatier neck, do you think it would be similar to my Artcore AS93 neck?
