Two years ago, I got my kids a starter kit guitar. MY daughter tried it a couple opf times but she siadf that she is more interested with violin. We haven't enrolled her into violin lessons yet as we don't have the money to buy her the violin. My son on the other hand is interested with guitar but he wants to have a real guitar first. I bought one at a garage sale but it needs new strings. I was looking at the guitarcenter.com sale and the price is actually cheaper than I thought it would be so maybe, I can afford to giet him a new one.
