Sure.
As long as that kit consists of a completely different guitar.
what? no.
A full sized guitar isn't built for the small frame of a five year old. It can be done but there are better options to introduce a child to music and string instruments. For instance, classical guitars a 3/4 size, and you can find child's size guitars as well. Ukuleles only have 4 strings but they play well and are extremely fun to bang on. They are also a perfect size for someone age 5-8. A child can also learn basic guitar techniques on a ukulele, and their price is much more reasonable than an entry level guitar.

Sweet deal. Can this be connected in a double-neck configuration with a kit?

Curious that they claim the 6-saddle bridge is "vintage inspired" when the old teles were known for their 3-saddle bridge. Mere detail, of course, as a 6-saddle bridge gives better scope for adjusting intonation.

Yes, if you add 20-30 dollars to that number.

I'm a parent with minimal music knowledge. If I want to give my 5 year old a guitar to stimulate interest and maybe do online lessons (for now given distancing), is this a good option? He's very careful with his stuff so I'm not worried about him dropping or mistreating it.

Price is great, but the neck will be too wide and long for easy play. I just bought a 3/4-scale acoustic and my 9yo can just barely manage a G chord and some barre chords (index/ring spread out), but my 6yo is stuck just playing individual notes.

This will probably be a bit large for most kids under 10-12.

I know this is about a regular guitar, but does anyone know of any good deals for a GOOD bass guitar?

Hello,

I recommend that, due to the fact it is not expensive, it gives a young student a built instrument that has some weight to it compared to a Stratocaster. I have two telecasters, both are heavy, but that's by telecaster design.

One key thing to keep in mind is that telecasters are more twangy sound, Stratocaster are more versatile but when it comes to learning, IMO, I'd go with this and you'll see.

IMO, while the size of the instrument is crucial for a kid to learn on and keep on, the worst thing to do is to not explore possibilities.

What a telecaster can do
