As much as I respect Jarome and his excelent knowledge,, I have to say the oppisite here. When I was learning on the acoustic,, I got bored and it was harder to get going on. The day I got a electric,, I never put it down. I was able to learn all my open chords faster with less finger pain, I was able to play root 5ths in a day. When I got bored of open chords I could switch to the Dirty channel and bang out power chords all day just having fun. After I got confident with that I found picking up the Acoustic wasmuch easier and I was able to get stuff going on it also.
Once again it boils down to the main answer on this page,, Try both and see what works for you Just keep at it and it will not dissapoint.

Mal - Jayne, your mouth is talking. You might wanna look to that
Kaylee - No power in the verse can stop me. BOOK- you're going to burn in a very special level of hell. A level they reserve for child molesters and people who talk at the theatre.
