Electric Guitar for a beginner?

Asked by bythebay (8199points) December 10th, 2008

My 13yo son asked for an electric guitar for Christmas. He asked for a Les Paul, but probably just because his friend has one. I looked on line and the choices are daunting. Les Paul, Fender, etc… We live in Maryland so Paul Reed Smith is like a religion here. I don’t even know where to begin! My husband and I each went to a different music store and got conflicting recommendations…so I’m consulting the fluther! Here are the specs: For a left handed 13yo boy; 2 years of acoustic playing; to be played in his bedroom (not a band), possibly under $500. for the whole deal? Please help…a million thanks in advance!
