Some acoustic guitar brands we carry in-store
An acoustic / dreadnaught guitar is a musical instrument in the guitar family with a hollow body that amplifies the string vibrations. In general, an acoustic guitar doesn’t need amplification to be heard, although many models have built in pick-ups and tuners. The frets embedded in the fingerboard, changes the length of the string when pressed and in turn alters the pitch. Acoustic guitar necks tend to be narrower and more rounded than on nylon string guitars. The metal strings give these guitars a much brighter, treble-focused sound that projects at louder volumes. Most contemporary guitarists prefers steel string guitars.
There are several different acoustic guitar types, however we only tend to deal with a few of them on a daily basis. The most common is the dreadnaught guitar which has a large cavity and produces a wide and rich tone with good volume and bass response. It’s the best seller and is available with or without a pickup. The parlour/concert-type guitar is a small bodied guitar that has a lighter tone while still maintaining a colourful spectrum. People with smaller frames find these guitars easier to play. The last is the jumbo acoustic guitar, often called the big boy of the guitar family and is more rounded at the top of the frame, increasing the cavity size. This guitar is loud, with a well balanced tonal spectrum and good bass response.
