I don't think one should base the quality of a guitar on the price or just the name. A lot of "named" guitars are made very poorly these days. I was in a store a couple of months back and I picked up a Fender Stat, prices at just under $1000. It played like utter poo. I kept thinking that I would cut my fingers on the sharp frets! I walked into the acoustic section and picked up an electric acoustic made by Carlo Robelli(who I had never heard of), it played so well that I was able to do things on the guitar I cannot usually do. I plugged it into an amp and it sounded outstanding. It's price was $109. I shouldn't have bought that guitar that day, but, I chose not to. My point is that one needs to go and play as many guitars as you can until you find the one that sounds and plays the best for you, once you find it, don't let go of it until you get home! Too identical guitars do not always play or sound the same.

I toatally agree that no two guitars sound or play the same. I think the best way to determine what sort of guitar to buy is to go and play them first hand and decide on what is best for you. My pride and joy howver is a Fender Fat Strat with a rosewood fret and a sunburst body. I feel in love with the looks of this guitar, and when I picked it up and played it I knew it was the one for me. I love the "fast fretboard" and the sound with the humbucker in my opinion is outstanding!

I got a Yamaha acoustic F310, it's pretty good. When it comes to where I live, which is Bahrain, then I guess Washburns and Yamahas, are pretty popular, because those are the ones commonly found here. There aren't a lot of music shops here, and the ones that are here, carry those two brands mostly, there are other brands too, but I guess they are ridiculously expensive ones, he he.

In my opinion, the best quality depends on what you want to do with it. It depends of the sound you want to get with you guitar. I think the most populars are Fenders and Gibsons, but that's only what I think.

I have an Alvarez Acoustic/Electric and I love it. It's my favorite guitar and I am so glad I found it. I also have a Fender Stratocaster, Bonnie Raitt special edition. It's a great guitar, and part of Bonnie's influence was to make the neck narrower so smaller, female hands can rock out better. But I prefer to play acoustic. I LOVE my guitars!

My partner is a rock guitarist singer/songwriter and has a huge collection of guitars. Fender Stratocasters, Fender Telecasters, a Fender Lone Star Stratocaster, plus his beloved Gibson Les Paul Classic. He also has around 17 other guitars in the house, ranging from a gorgeous Martin 12 string acoustic, an Ovation 12 string, a Gothic Explorer and, just recently, has been looking at getting a Gretsch White Falcon or a Gibson Les Paul Goldtop. Unfortunately the last two are a little too expensive at the moment

I have a Kramer Focus 6000. It's made in America and its played by an American! The best would be a Music Man or Ibanez, my opinion. Also a PRS (Paul Reed Smith) Those can get pricey.

I have a Schecter electric guitar. Mine was bought from a guy who used to be in one of my favorite bands, so I was thrilled to get it. I don't play it often, but it's neat to have. :) It's also in a coffin case, which makes me very happy! :)

The best quality guitars that I have heard of and my friend has been kind enough to allow me to try are Gibson guitars. One reason why I know that they are of good quality is the fact that the Les Paul Standard or many other Les Paul variations will appreciate in value over the years. As the wood ages, the tonal quality rises, I believe. The only downside is the price for most Gibson products is an arm and a leg. Another bad thing someone has found out is if an older Gibson is bought then it may come out of tune because of the old tuning pegs. Nevertheless, Gibson is a highly acclaimed guitar company that everyone should consider at one point in their guitar playing career.

Well Epiphone is really a good guitar for the price you pay for them! I've played many Epiphone guitars! The other ones that are popular and inexpensive are Ibanez, and the Squiers! Of course if you ever have an opportunity to buy the expensive ones, they are; Martin, Fender, Gibson,Yamaha,and several others that are popular!
