big "THANK YOU"s to all who shared
their thoughts on this question.
all replies, and any future ones,
have been, or will be forwarded to
my co-worker. some of them echo,
and lend creedence to what i'd
already told him, but with better
reasons than my memories of things
that my ex- would say when buying
a guitar ... you gave him just the
sort of information that i'd like
to have done, but didn't really
know or remember ...
the kid has discovered Hendrix ...
i dunno what else has gone into it,
but that's where he is at this time.
from what i know of the kid, and/or
kids in general, i expect that he'll
find the whole thing is more like
work than he'll be willing to do,
but on the other hand, he could be
a genius-in-waiting, and having a
playable first guitar could make
all the difference ... who knows?
