Yeah, if you buy an electric you can play more often, but it just isnt the same. My first kit was an electric, after playing on some acoustics I sold the electric for an acoustic. The electric was cool because I could play whenever i felt like without bothering anybody (I live in a crowded household). Now with the acoustic i only get to play half as often, but I'd say it was totally worth it. Electrics just aren't the same.
