How many keys would it have? Assuming it's a 6 string\E standard tuning.

48. 4 octaves.

24+the number of frets (assuming that your guitar has 5 or more frets). The piano version of a 24 fret guitar would have 4 octaves.

not 48

more like 45 or 46 (remember that the 8 is also the 1 of the next octave)

Ok cool trying to figure out how many keys I should get when I buy a keyboard, I think 61 is good enough.

Oh God. 2 octaves between low and high E string is 24 frets as the 24. fret on low E string is also E (same pitch as high E). If the guitar has 24 frets, then it has exactly 48 different pitches (piano keys). Counting from first tone (and not counting the last one), one octave consists of 12 semitones (and every tone is there only once).

Actually 49. You have to count the low E as well.
48 frets + the open string.

A keyboard and a guitar aren't really comparable because you play both the melody and the bass on a keyboard.(if you play piano music) I have a keyboard with 61 keys (5 octaves) and it has a function to make the whole keyboard sound one octave lower or higher. This is enough for almost all songs but there are a few songs that need a sixth octave. So it probably enough. Don't buy a keyboard with less than 5 octaves.
