My teenage son (fifteen) has decided he wants to play the guitar. What guitar?

He is a smart and determined kid and I want to give him a decent start, but I'm not about to run out and buy a Strat.
It is my understanding that he is better off learning the fundamentals on an acoustic, so I need a lead on a sub-1k guitar -- one rugged enough to survive the idiocy it will undoubtedly be subjected to and one that is easy to make loud.
