I am doing a school project and for it I need to know what the twenty best selling guitars are. I would prefer no repeats such as Gibson Les Paul/ Epiphone Les Paul. I need electrics and acoustics (electric acoustics work too) I need solid and hollow body electrics. Does anyone know whare I can find this information?

Fender Strat and Gibson Les Paul are easily THE most popular, mainly because they've been in production for 50 years, which was itself a consequence of their popularity...it's a vicious cycle.

Basically, Fender and Gibson's main designs occupy the first bunch of slots. The others are far behind. Gretsch were popular, but they produced a lot of different models, and it's hard to pick just one that out-sold the others, whereas with Fender and Gibson, they took one concept and refined it again and again over the years.

Thus, I suspect the list would look something like this: (in no particular order)

Fender Stratocaster
Fender Telecaster
Gibson Les Paul
Gibson SG
Gibson Flying V
Gibson ES-335
Jackson Soloist
Ibanez RG550
Gretsch 6120

Can't think of a 10th.

I tried that and it doesn't give the expected results. You just get the "best selling" pages of guitar retailers, which are usually full of <100 dollar pieces of shcrap.

I know for a fact that the Stratocaster is the single best selling guitar, and I think that the Jazz Bass is the single best selling musical instrument of all time.

Actually, the harmonica is the best selling instrument of all time.

Yup, in fact, I think the P bass outsells the jazz bass anyway, it's certainly been around for a decade longer.

go on musicians friend and to the guitar section
where it lists all the guitars, scroll the bar down to "best selling"
it'll give you a list of the guitars that sell best on mf.
Ibanez S320 with Dimarzio Fred + Seymour Duncan 59-> Weeping Demon Wah -> Ibanez TS-7 -> Homemade iBoost x3 -> Keeley DS-1 -> Visual Sound H2O -> MXR Ten Band -> Traynor YCV20

most popular =/= best

if u look at all these gae indie sh1t bands, they all blay tele's and strats,

because that's what their manager gives them,

IMO, jackson's are the way to go.
