Answer

It depends on how much time you have, how well you want to learn the guitar and how fast you would like to be playing the guitar.  I have kept to a standard 1/2 hour per weekday requirement for my students and have seen them make some great progress when they keep on top of their daily practicing.  For me, I remember almost every day after school (this was in highschool) playing the guitar for 1-3 hours almost every day.  This resulted in quick progress and proficiency at playing my favorite songs. 
Dedication and consistent focused effort are key to learning any instrument.
