First you have to decide what type of guitar you are looking for. Are you a beginner, or an established player? Will you be playing this guitar on stage in front of an audience, or just in your room? Are you looking for an electric guitar or an acoustic guitar? Once you know what type of guitar you want and need, you will have a better idea of where to start.

Now you can pick a brand. Some of the most popular brands are Fender, Gibson, Ibanez, and Epiphone. Fender guitars make the cheaper brand Squier guitars and Epiphone is a more inexpensive brand made by Gibson.
