I have time to pick up one of them back but I am unsure between the two.

I enjoy guitar more and there would be a lot of learning involved but if I play piano and prep myself, I could up a grade on ABRSM.

Any advice?

Biased here but:
Guitar is easier to idly practice. Piano is something you need to actually sit down at a specific spot to do, whereas I can just do exercises on the guitar while watching TV

I teach myself both... but I cant read anything but drum notation (coz that's what i got lessons for) so i play it by ear... i used to love piano and still do but at some point it just got a bit tedious... but guitar... I dont think I'll ever stop loving that because theres just so much to change up... like the strumming patterns... the chords.. the capo... the plucking technique... the style (for instance I LOVE to play in flamenco style 💃💃)... but I use piano more for songs that I play and sing... because I find it easier to play piano and sing rather than guitar and sing.... but if its instrumental definately guitar xx

I play piano for fun occasionally, but I think guitar. Been playing for quite a while now, and seeing as you enjoy it more you’re more likely to stick with it.
Doing an instrument just to get grades isn’t the point of them- grades are one way to gradually learn an instrument and get better. It’ll be more fulfilling to learn an instrument because you want to and maybe pick up a couple grades along the way

Go find what pieces are out there. My attachment to the piano definitely grew when I heard Joe Hisaishi’s compositions for Studio Ghibli and I just wanted to learn them ASAP

That’s actually genius

Except a keytar is basically just a keyboard that you hold like a guitar if I remember right.....
So it’s not really a guitar at all........
