So many guitars, so little time. when I was a kid, everybody had one.

If he's planning to take lessons, the teacher can give you ideas on where to get one. He probably has students who are upgrading and have their starter guitars to sell.

There are many for sale in the paper. Call a few sellers. I would consider this plan too time consuming and not worth the effort since I wouldn't know how to pick one (if I knew nothingk)

Since you don't know a thing about guitars, visiting one or two music stores and asking them to show you a few used guitars would be enlightening. That is the way I would go. Then pick one of those. I wouldn't make the search too complicated because then it will take forever and he wants to play now. The music store is usuall also a music school, so you can find teachers there too.
