My 9 yr grandson picked up a Bass this summer and is hooked. I am a 63 year old grandpa who went out on Craigslist and found a very red Squire p Base for him. I tried to attach a picture. He's happy. I noticed this new guitar has more controls and a different pickup setup than others being played at his school. I'm concerned about him learning tonality and feel along with musicality. Should I think about a less involved, simpler version of the Bass. I see older p Basses that look to be a bit simpler in design. I'm lost as what to do. Second area of advice. I caught the older guitar bug a bit. Found this Craigslist offer for $65. Can't find a single post on this guitar as a Teister build. The seller says it's a a 1960 build from Teister which I read is a Japanese company. Weren't they a 1980 thing? Then, I searched on the name on the neck and can't find a single post on it that way either. I was thinking this guitar looks aged and might have a legacy/pro sound the grandson might gravitate to; also it's electronics/controls look simpler for the Grandson as well. Your help on this purchase decision is greatly appreciated. I'll try to attach pictures.
