    Mayank,

    IN my opinion, All this companies guitar are fine for a beginner. Get somebody along with you at the time shopping for guitar who have some experience in guitar playing because he/she will be able to identify if there is any problem in guitar. There are couple of things which needs to be check like action, fret buzz etc. If there is something wrong with the guitar setup it can be a big problem in future and you might get demotivated. I went recently with my friend to help in his guitar shopping and we bought Yamaha F310. It is a nice guitar but not a cutaway .... I prefer cutaway as it gives more freedom in playing solos .... Go and get a guitar :)

    Mayank i agree with him.....
    But i would suggest you to buy a second hand guitar as u dnt knw whether guitar is ur cup of tea or not... i mean would u be able to carry on or u will drop it.thats y...
    After you think that u can do it (after a year's exposure),
    you can directly buy a new electric guitar.

    Medium size & Budget options:-
    For learning buy a Medium size Granada. Comes for around 3500/- There is another brand named G&C not sure if i am spelling it correctly. That comes for around 3500 as well. These guitars are very good for learning and cheap options too.

    Jumbo & slightly costlier:-
    Pluto - Around 4500/-
    Yamaha F210 - Good guitar in terms of playability, tone and wood quality. Around 6.5 - 7K.

    2nd hand guitars :-
    Dont buy it without getting it tested from someone who knows guitar well. Else you will end up wasting ur money.

    I am not sure about Plano. but GC is a good brand...I have played on it personally for lot of times..One of my friend owns it...he bought it for 3300/-

    Dont go for looks...Looks are always secondary...U better take someone who has some knowledge of choosing a guitar....
