Does it make sense to gift a guitar to a 16 yr old trumpet player?

My grandson plays trumpet and enjoys playing with his dad.  His dad also has a guitar and I wonder if they would enjoy playing guitar together without asking them.  They are both genius types.  Not sure if I would be able to return it if he really doesn't have the interest and thinks he never will.

    Being a genius has nothing to do with if he wants to learn how to play the guitar. 

    Ask him. Not his dad or mom. Ask him. 

    Most guitars bought on Amazon can be returned.

    The common sense thing to do is to ask the boy's dad about it.  He will have an idea of whether your grandson would be interested and (if so) what sort of guitar would make a good first guitar. 

    You'd also find out if dad is interested in teaching and/or paying for lessons to make the most of your gift, and/or had plans of his own to give his son a guitar.

    Why don’t you ask him if he would be interested in playing guitar?
