"What brand is your guitar?"

"What brand guitar do you play?"

I suppose the first one is grammatically correct, is the second one correct as well?

They mean the same thing, right?

  • @lekon You are correct. They mean the same thing, although the second question is more clear and complete. Both are grammatically correct. Mar 19, 2016 at 14:19

What brand of guitar

What brand guitar

What guitar brand

What brand of guitar do you recommend?

What guitar brand do you recommend?

What brand guitar do you play?

You cannot play a "brand". You play a guitar of a particular make or brand.


Both are gramatically correct.

Both mean 99% the same thing, except in rare cases - if you ask someone who owns a guitar but never plays it, or if you ask someone who owns a guitar and perhaps plays it more or less often, but right now is playing someone else's guitar.


To me both seem grammatically correct. Though 2nd one is more clear to ask.

  • Could you also explain why you think what you think? Answers aren't useful without explanations.

  • You are absolutely right but my grammar isn't too good so I am not able to explain it (Sorry for that). But still both of your sentences seem correct.
