Much depends on what you intend to play. Both guitar types have their advantages and disadvantages. Some considerations to ponder for both electric and acoustics.
Acoustics | Generally, less initial investment is required. Acoustic guitars can be harder to play than electrics. In general, they need more hand strength in the left hand and fingers to fret a chord. Acoustics usually required thicker guitar strings than electrics. Thicker strings are harder to fret.
Electrics | An electric guitar requires an amplifier. Electric guitars are more comfortable to play than acoustics. Electrics are usually more comfortable to hold and play. Electrics often have slim necks that may suit someone with small hands.
