About Classical Acoustic Guitars
Classical acoustic guitars usually have nylon strings, which are later replaced by the heavier modern steel strings option creating the new type of guitar. Nylon strings, however, carry that sweet and soft tone that is characteristic of acoustic guitars. And since the tension is not as hard as with steel metal strings, you can expect a clearer and more glassy tone from your acoustic guitar.
Knowing the long history of acoustic guitars and the fact that such instruments were found more than 4000 years ago, we want to clarify that the classical guitar is undergoing its own stages of evolution and development. From changes in shape and body, to modification and experiments with the material of the strings and their number.
Modern classical acoustic guitar has generally been used by thousands of musicians since the second half of the 17th century, since nylon strings were introduced in the world.
The fretboard is usually significantly wider and the strings are at a greater distance, which makes it easier to learn the correct position of your fingers and find the right note you want to play. That is why and thanks to their classic sweet tone, classic acoustic guitars are considered the most suitable for beginner guitarists.
The frets are lower on number for all classical guitars, unlike with the steel string guitars – 12 frets in classical acoustics between the head of the fingerboard and the body of the guitar. Another characteristic feature is the way they are played – by definition the acoustic guitar does not need an amplifier to play it, but to be suitable for your live performances, we recommend using a microphone on the stage that will amplify and highlight the sound of your classical acoustic guitar and overcame the noise of the crowd.
