Do you know what your mum would prefer in a guitar eg, solid/hollow body, humbuckers or single coil pickups, neck length etc. If she's never had an expensive guitar before she'll be pretty stoked with anything top of the line though if you don't know what she prefers. I imagine she'd prefer something better for playing rhythm and chords rather than a super thin shreddy guitar.
I've got a Schecter S-1 Elite which is a cool rock guitar. The Schecter's were real good value for money. shame they went bust.
hey thanks! i know she prefers solid body. i tried getting her to look at some hollow-bodies because that is what i generally prefer, but she didn't seem interested in them as much. as far as pick ups, and neck length, and all that stuff... i don't have a clue lol.
