Acoustic guitars come in lots of different shapes and sizes, and if you’re a beginner, choosing the right one can be a little daunting. We’ve made this acoustic guitar buying guide to hopefully point you in the right direction, comparing the different body sizes and explaining the pros and cons of each, with tonal demos to show you how each different style of guitar sounds.
We look at the Dreadnought size (commonly referred to as the "standard" acoustic shape), the larger Jumbo acoustic (made popular by the likes of Elvis Presley & John Lennon), the curvier Folk & Orchestra models, as well as smaller Parlor and Travel size guitars.
Hopefully you’ll find this beginner’s guide helpful, you can try out a huge selection of acoustic guitars at your nearest Professional Music Technology store…
