This article will tell you about guitar choices, cost, and what is reasonable for what kind of player. The prices are not exact! They are averaged from guitar stores. The information may not be 100% correct (such as prices and information that can change easily) so this is a close estimate. Always remember to play the guitar on an amp at the store before you buy it. This is a good way to know you like the guitar.
A good guitar is easy to use. A good guitar is a known name by most guitar players. If you go to the guitar store and you try to buy a guitar, ask the owner if he has heard of that guitar and is it known. If he has never seen or heard about it, it might not be a good guitar because it is not a known manufacturer. If the guitar is not known, it still might be a good guitar. Play it on an amp at the store before you buy it.
Most electric guitars range from $120-2.8 million. 2.8 Million is the record for the most expensive guitar. It is a signed Fender Stratocaster. Good beginner guitars are around $120. Intermediate guitars cost from $200-$500. The experts play guitars that cost from $500-$15,000. If you don’t have a lot of money to spend on a guitar, then you would go for the used market in which guitars cost around $60-$130.
The used market might have guitars in perfect condition for about $70. In the used market, you can buy $2,000 guitars for $200 if they were scratched, dented, or broken on the inside or out. They also might be used but cost a lot. If they had a Les Paul that looked perfect, just because it is in the used market does not mean it is cheap. If it is used but in perfect condition, it would still only be about $200 less than new.
Some well known guitar names are Fender, Gibson, Epiphone, Gibson SG, Les Paul, Aria, B.C Rich, Ibanez, Stagg, and ESP. Those are the big names. They cost around $200-12,555. The guitar company with the best range of guitars from price and level of playing is Fender. Their guitars range from $200-$2.8 million. Fender has a good price range and guitars for even the most experienced or inexperienced players around.

The double-neck guitar has two 6 string necks. 12 strings take time to learn. There are other double-neck guitars but SG is what comes to mind when you think of double-neck guitars and what kind. They are cool.
