Different Types of Guitars

#Thin neck acoustic guitars

There are so many different options for guitars that you have to choose from, especially when it comes to acoustic guitars. If you are just starting out or may not have a lot of experience with guitars, these options can be very overwhelming for people. With this article, you can learn about some popular choices for acoustic guitar so that you can determine which one is the best one for your needs.

Ziricote Guitar

Ziricote guitar may not be an option that you are familiar with, but this is a very popular choice for people who play flamenco, baroque, or classical music. The reason why people love this type of guitar is because it has a booming and rich bass response. But that’s not the only great thing about this type of guitar. It also has amazing treble on it, making it a great choice for people who want to create classic sounding music. This type of guitar also has a natural reverb, making an appealing sound for the musician and their audience. The aesthetics of this guitar is often compared to the look of Brazilian rosewood guitars, though it has darker grey tones and very black lines that make it look as great as it sounds.

Redwood Guitar

The redwood guitar has that deep beauty that it gets from the redwood trees that they are derived from. Before getting into the sound of the guitar, what’s great about redwood guitars is that they contain the tannins from the wood and bark of the tree, which acts as a natural protectant against fire, rot, and insects. As far as the sound goes, there is a distinct richness in the tone of redwood guitars and a level of responsiveness that can be hard to beat. If you strum with a pick, you can enjoy a crisp and punchy sound that adds depth to your music. If your approach is to play the guitar with your fingers, you will love the rich and highly complex overtones of the guitar.

Thin Neck Acoustic Guitar

Thin neck acoustic guitars are all about the comfort when you play your instrument. When talking about a thin neck guitar, you are looking at the width of the neck. Thinner guitar necks are a lot easier to play, especially if you have smaller hands or want something that is easier to fret. You are looking at the nut width when looking at the specifications of a guitar. There are thin neck options for both acoustic guitars and electric. These also are made from different types of wood, so you really can find the perfect thin neck guitar for your play style and the sound that you want to achieve.


These are 3 great options to consider when looking for a guitar. It’s a good idea to get a feel for the guitar before you buy it to make sure it has the sound that you’re looking for and feels right in your hands. You want to be comfortable, but you also want something that will achieve the sound that you want.
