I have a soon to be 16 year old son who is a fairly advanced violinist for his age. He has started talking about wanting an electric violin "for fun" and his dad and I would like to think about getting one for his upcoming birthday or Christmas.
We do not have a lot of extra funds (family with four teens right now, three within 2 years of starting college), so this has to be done on as tight of a budget as possible. Would it be wiser to just...wait...until we have at least $1000 to sink into a set up or would a cheap "$219 Maestro" from Amazon be something to even consider for him?
He has an electric guitar and amp...but I'm gathering he'd need a different amp for an electric violin. Any input or "list of things to think about" would be most appreciated.
