The most overplayed musical instrument in the world, music itself has been diluted because of the instrument's popularity among the vapid. Most great and original guitarists are dead, which creates a problem for touring, unless you're playing Cleveland.
"I suck so bad my guitars are now wall ornaments collecting dust and I've begun listening to shit I'll NEVER be able to play anyways, like jazz."

A guitar is the sexiest instrument ever. Chicks dig guitars.
It is also a stringed musical instrument with a long, fretted neck, a flat, somewhat violinlike body, and typically six strings, which are plucked with the fingers or with a plectrum.
And A musical instrument having a flat-backed rounded body that narrows in the middle, a long fretted neck, and usually six strings, played by strumming or plucking.
Lean your body forward slightly to support the guitar against your chest, for the poetry of the music should resound in your heart.

Possibly the best instrument ever, it can be used in just about any style of music, and virtually an ENDLESS amount of tones can be achieved on electric guitar by changing your amplifier, pickups, amp settings, adding effect pedals, etc etc. Individual playing style also affects your sound which most people aren't willing to accept. You won't sound like your idol even if you are using exactly the same equipment.

Also, an instrument which practically everyone in the world claims to play, yet only a precious few are any good at it. Just because you can play power chords, tune in drop-d, or get weird sounds using a ton of effects, doesn't make you a decent guitarist (don't get me wrong, there are a lot of interesting things that can be played in alternate tunings including drop-d that can't be done in standard tuning, but that isn't usually why they are used).

Nowadays companies such as Warmoth allow players to build custom guitars that will look and sound the way they want, however a basic knowledge of tone woods is required and they don't guarantee that the guitar will sound good when put together.
I thought playing the guitar was supposed to get you laid. Damn, I must be really ugly.

A rarely used musical instrument in rock and popular music.
Guitarist #1: Ok let's form a rock band. We need two electric guitarists; four acoustic guitarists; three bass guitarists and seven lead guitarists.

Guitarist #2: Cool, but I think we need more guitarists.

The greatest musical instrument ever made. A good guitarist can be easily identified by letting them tell you what music they listen to. They need not play for you. If a person listens to death metal, emo, screamo, and grunge they can be brushed off as poor players because they can only play a few power chords. If a guitarist listens to music such as Jimi Hendix, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Pink Floyd, and other old rock bands they are most likely good guitarists or are at least on the right track in learning to play the instrument. Most teenage boys own a guitar though stopped playing after picking it up and finding out it takes a hell of a lot of hard work to make any progress with it. And I don't mean to sound sexist or anything, but females CAN NOT play.
Alex: Look at me! I can strum along to my favorite Fall Out Boy song!
Me: Dude put the guitar down and go write a poem about how no one understands.
