I know nothing about ltd guitars. Which model are you thinking of?
amp is good, get him an ltd and do a nice setup on it. modern looking, and very well built for cheap. not for me but an easy to play beginner guitar. imo a new plyer needs something comfy and simple.

+1. FORCE him to try a few different ones out and see which one he likes most
Mustang I and whatever guitar he fancies.

Most of them these days. Whenever I see a rock covers band in a bar the under-25s now know all the songs, pretty much entirely due to Guitar Hero. If you whacked out the intro to Sweet Home Alabama ten years ago they all headed straight for the door, now they all go nuts, even the girls.
I'd go with humbuckers too. I think it's cool that he's playing smoke on the water though, that was lame when I was 14, but now how many 14 year olds even know of the song now?

definitely the Vox amp.
A friend's son is starting on the path to guitar god. 14 years old, has borrowed a friends guitar for a few weeks and is hooked. Interested in classic rock - is playing smoke on the water :facepalm: What to get a beginner? Budget is negotiable, but competes with everything else a family needs and wants. I am thinking used so can sell it on if the fad passes and my first guess is: Amp: Fender Mustang I Guitar: Yamaha PAC 112 Alternative amps: Vox AD15 Valvetronix Roland Cube 15 Line6 Spider 15 Alternative guitars: Squier? Epi? Ibanez? We are in Europe so Agile/SX are not a consideration
