Which of these electric guitars is better for a beginner?

I’m looking to get an electric guitar for my niece who is 16. The two guitars that I’m looking at are:

Which one would be better for her? She’s never played guitar before so she’s a complete beginner. If neither of these guitars are decent for its price, could you suggest something else within the <$250 range? Thanks for your help.

    I believe a pool one's money approach would be better. The trouble with these kits is the guitars tend not to stay in tune and most people don't like the way the amps sound.

    From Musician's Friends:

    Fender Champion 40 combo $200

    Reverb:

    Used PRS SE (without a floating bridge) less than $400 including shipping.
