till you learn about different guitars and the style of music you like to play most so that you can get the one that fits you best not the one that you think looks cool. i didn't buy a guitar for 3 years. it kinda depends on you money situation too.

This is a stupid question... it depends on how much money you make if any and how nice of a guitar you got and how soon you need one.

Honestly, I've been to some guitar forums where there's people there who are like "Yeah. I just ordered a custom shop guitar. While I'm waiting on that one, I ordered another. And while waiting on those two, I just bought a new *insert expensive as hell guitar here*."

buying guitars isnt something you do for the sake of it :P you do it cos the thing youre buying is an asset to your sound/options to play stuff.

so the big question would be: why would you want another guitar?

when you feel you need a new one, and you enjoy playing guitar enough that you feel its a worthwhile investment

Buy a new guitar when you think you have earned it. I have been playing for about 2 years now and just now moved off of my starter strat copy to an ibanez rg. I got to the point where I thought I earned a new guitar, and had the money. Plus, my old guitar had really sharp frets and would tear up my hands.

I didn't get my Viper 400 until about 2 years after I got my first Squier Strat.

Well, I got my squier strat last summer and I'm going to buy an acoustic this summer, but I doubt I'll be able to afford a new electric anytime soon (as in I don't think I could count the # of years on one hand) due to income issues...being a lack of...
It kind of depends on when you feel you need a better sound. Don't just buy guitars left right and centre for the hell of it.

It's all about how much money you got kickin' around in the guitar budget. I know some phenomenal guitarists with "cheap" guitars.
