Any guitar of good guality is good for learning to play on. If this guitar is of a well known brand and very old it may be a collectors item worth some big bucks, in that case you would not want to be playing it much. I like a nylon classical guitar to learn on, the scale is the most used in any type of music so your ear training would fit right in if you should switch to an electric etc,which you would want to do if you are wanting to play heavy metal or rock,but for learning cords,runs, strumming etc, a classical is very good.Not so good for fast runs and wild loud strumming.
