6 String Acoustic Guitars

Best-Selling Guitars
See More Back
As one of the most recognizable instruments in the world, the acoustic guitar has been around for centuries. Known for its warm, rich sound, the 6-string acoustic guitar makes its home on the stage, in the recording studio and in millions of homes across the globe. Whether you're picking up the guitar for the first time or are simply in the market for a new instrument, there are lots of options out there when it comes to finding the right 6-string for you. One of the first things to consider is the size and weight of the instrument. If you're just starting out or are a younger musician, you might want to look into a scaled-down version of a full-sized guitar. These instruments typically have a shortened, thinner neck and a smaller body. While they produce similar sound as their larger counterparts, these are much more manageable for smaller hands.

There are also guitars that offer cut-away designs to provide easier access to the upper frets, a definite plus when navigating those higher notes. Another aspect to look at is the construction of the guitar. The soundboard of an acoustic guitar is typically made of tonewoods like spruce and cedar that are chosen for their strength and their ability to transfer sound from the strings into the body of the instrument. It is said that rosewood gives a soulful darker sound while mahogany is helpful in producing sweeter, softer melodies. Taking the time to get to know and experiment with a variety of woods will be exceptionally beneficial when it comes to making your final decision. From intimate coffee house shows to live performances in front thousands of screaming fans, the acoustic guitar brings something special to the lives of all musicians. Taking the time to unplug and get back to the more traditional tones of the 6-string acoustic guitar can give you a whole new perspective the way you play and make music.
