I plan on waiting a bit to see if this urge is just another passing fad of mine, or if it will be a serious interest, though I imagine that I won't really know until I start learning. Electric is want I want to play eventually, but I've been hearing different things: that one should start w/ acoustic, electric doesn't have as good a range, etc.
However, there are a few things to consider: I'm 21 right now, and will start working soon. I'll be living in an apartment complex, so noise could be an issue. And as I'm not sure how earnest my interest is, I'm afraid to invest in too expensive of an instrument. What does everything think? Is it possible to start learning violin with an electric? And, either way (electric/acoustic) what would be a decent one to get for a beginner with a relatively low budget? Thanks for any feedback.
