I'm not too up on guitar technology, but I think the size and weight of a guitar is a factor in the sound they produce, but don't think the shape makes much of a difference.

A friend once queried why I (and reviews) believed a Sony Walkman Mp3 player sounded better than an iPod as they were both doing the same thing, but the components and the way they're placed together make the differences.

Cool, thanks for the info on the guitar quesitons. I have been educated, yay!!! I have a guitar and can play a bit but all I can you about it is A) it's got 6 strings, B) it's a light yellow kind of colour and C) it's not even mine but my brothers!

alright I'm thinking of buying only one electric guitar(and one acoustic maybe) at the moment

Definitely worth it the benefits of electrics are obvious and give great variety, but acoustics are so much more enjoyable to play from my perspective.
Also, electric acoustics are also worth a look in to, that is, instead of the acoustic. They do the same thing, but with the option to plug it in, instead of mic-ing it up. That's what I have

Oh, never thought of electric acoustics...now they´re attracting me lol
I feel I'm getting a better perspective on guitars. It's fun to talk about them

Lol I am sorry I might be making this more confusing! A really good one to get (which I have, as do many many other people) is the Yamaha APX 500. They're an amazing price, extremely reliable, sound fantastic and look good. They've got a small body as well which I love because I'm a small person, and like to move around on stage. But it's all personal taste. You will notice a large amount of people have them because of these reasons. So it won't be anything different, but it's totally worth it.
And awww, I'm glad you think so

Oh yeah it's not that expensive I once thought of Epiphone Les Paul but got confused because of some negative reviews hehe. I'm a small person too, perhaps smaller than you (as I'm 167cm tall lol) and there seem to be positive reviews here and there I think I'm going to buy that Yamaha APX 500, though I'll have to take a look at it at the store

I have no idea about the Epiphone sadly lol, only the Yamaha, but I will vouch for it being good And yes you are smaller than me, but only slightly haha. But yeah do go have a look first to make sure you do like it, and choose the colour you want of course
I'll feel bad now if you get it and then hate it

I should hope so my one has been through a lot with me (not to mention many gigs without a case) and it's still working fantastically.
No problem anytime!
