Really depends on your price range. If you're looking for something under $400, may as well buy new; Guitar Center has a great selection and is competitive on the price. You can sometimes fall into a super deal on PRS, Gibson or Taylor at GC, but timing is everything.
High end stuff you really ...

As others have said, go online and find a video lesson that has favorable feedback. You have to practice finger position for the basic chords and you have to practice at least a 1/2 hour each day at the beginning. Some chord configurations aren't natural movements and it takes constant reinforcement...
