I don't know about Davison guitars, but I have an Epiphone SG 400 (Note: Not Special) and it's great. Also they're really cheap, between 300-400 bucks for a guitar that good ain't bad.

If you are just starting to play, what guitar you get does not matter much at all. Just make sure it can hold a tune, and has good action (amount of space between the strings and the frets, too much will make it hard to fret notes, especially barre chords, and especially when you are first starting to play). Having said that, my advice to you as someone learning guitar, make it ACCESSIBLE. Make it easy to pick up your guitar and play. I keep my amp and strat and my pedals upstairs out of the way, and play it occasionally. However, I always keep an acoustic next to my couch in my living room, so it could not be easier for me to just pick it up and start playing. If I sit down to watch tv, I grab my guitar and start strumming during commercials. I suggest you keep your guitar in whatever room in your house you spend the most time, and pick it up for at least 5-10 minutes every time you are in that room. Good luck, the payoff once you start learning a few chords and scales is well worth the time you must put in to get there.

This is excellent advice. Most of my guitar playing skills come from having done this for years and years.

I do this too - but I work from home so technically I get paid to jam with myself!
