Electric guitar is fine. I use my electrics mostly (even without plugging into an amp) but break out the acoustic now and then.
Guitars: Ibanez GIO GART60, GWL Acoustic mini jumbo, Squier Affinity Telecaster
Amps: Line 6 Spider IV 15, Orange Micro Crush 3W

If it's got 6 strings tuned to EADGBe then it's good to go!
Too much to list now, I have a bad case of GAS, UAS, and general ‘must have syndrome’

Justin recommends that beginners get an electric guitar.
It's in BC 101? 102 or 103. Not sure which one.

Yep, in BC-102, he has this:
Quote
• If you want to play rock: buy an electric.
• If you want to play classical: buy a nylon string classical guitar.
• If you want to play folk: buy a steel string acoustic.
• However, if you only have a very small budget, don't buy an acoustic.
• If you are not really sure, get an electric.
• Avoid a 3/4-size guitar unless it's for very young children.

I fall into the not really sure category.  So I picked up a Les Paul 100.  I'm just in Stage 1 and it is working well for me. 
Guitars: Epiphone Les Paul 100

not really. it's a beginners guitar of the most basic kind.
