How do I know what to buy?
First and foremost there are a few types of guitars, but most popular are the Gibson guitars. They were invented in the ’50s, and are some of the best guitars ever made of the time.

In high school I used to play the Blues with an acoustic guitar and later the Fender Les Paul to get into the technical parts of playing music. I still play bass and a few other guitars, depending on what instruments I have available to me.

The most famous Gibson model is the Les Paul Classic model, which was introduced in 1965. This model is the first of the acoustic-style guitars and it is currently a favorite guitar for players. It is one of the best models out there. For others, like the Gibson Gretsch, the
