    dude its a loong story, but i think that u shud get an acoustic one first. Get to know what a guitar feels like, and then go for an electric. U dont learn driving in a Ferrari right? Get some good beginner's guitar, and then get electric later.

    id suggest an start off, the rest depends on ur budget.
    Electrics range from 4k-40k-100k. So....tell us ur budget and we might be able to give u some better advice

    @ walk_alone : Get an Acoustic First.. You can jump that phase at all.. You're not only gonna hit road bumps, but you're gonna miss out on a lot of Details and Techniques..

    i dont agree with the get an acoustic first and then electric theory...if u are sure about playing guitar id suggest an electric to start off.

    agree with you dennis,
    but see:

    our man is absolut n0000b! and what is the reason behind his going in for the "magical instrument" guitar?
    most prob the glam factor.

    once he does start playing and practicing, he will realize that everything is not so easy.
    What if he decide to forgo? Buying an acoustic is a cheaper investment, electric is definitly more expensive.
    So incase, he decide to quit, there is not much to be lost.

    On the other hand, he can always upgrade if he really wants to play electric.

    yup..agree with u.
    Get an electric if u are seriously seriously serious about a life of guitaring(with only a bunch of guys checking u out)
    or an acoustic( with no one checking u out) :p:

    *tongue in cheek*

    Replace the word "guys" with "chicks" and it will hold true the other way round. I guess u must've seen that happen @ IITD?

    Amazing reponses.........................Guys lemme tell u iam absolutely serious about learning.Its not abt glamour or chicks its just abt something that i create and is my own......

    Anyway i have decided to buy a Hobner 265( f -cut ) and offcourse with pikups and an amp........ i wd really wanna feel that pain in my fingers and those frustrating countless hours wen i wd sound like absolutely crap before moving to a electric one.

    i dnt wanna buy a GIVSON(waste of money) maybe wen i eventually learn to learn playing guitar i wd shift to maybe a Les Paul or a Fender(lol maybe dreaming).........

    I am into Rock (Grundge) but tht doesnt affect my learning 'coz i wd start from classical.

    I really appreciate all your views and wd luv if u continue doing so.

    ^^^ Dude since you know a lot about guitars already.. Try the acoustic man.. If you feel the need for an Electric go for it..
