An Introduction to Acoustic Guitars

Every guitar player needs a great acoustic guitar – or several – in their collection. Finding the right acoustic guitar for you can be a daunting process even for the most seasoned player. If you are new to shopping for guitars, then it is even more critical that you learn all you can before you make your first purchase. If your first acoustic guitar is not the appropriate choice for you, then it can dramatically reduce the enjoyment you will get out of your instrument. If you are a new guitar player, the wrong guitar can be downright discouraging. You want a guitar that fits you, is effortless to play, and has the rich, beautiful tone you love to make it the instrument you dream of playing hour after hour.

Our experts here at Taylor Guitars can help you through every step of the decision-making process to ensure you find the guitar that is right for you. Our site has a wealth of information about what goes into making a Taylor guitar and how to make this very important decision. We have guides for how to find the right fit for you. Learn about the subtle differences in shapes and styles. Delve into different types of woods and construction, which are vital to the flavor and tone of an acoustic. Explore the Taylor line by series to find the look and style you want for your instrument.

Another essential tool to aid you in making your purchasing decision is our guitar comparison tool. With this tool, you can select two different guitars and compare them side-by-side. This gives you a clear and specific look at each guitar and compares every single feature, including the manufacturer’s suggested retail price, shape, top wood, body wood, electronics and more.

You can also download for free The Definitive Guide to Buying an Acoustic Guitar written by our team of experts to comprehensively answer all your questions. You can download it, print it out, and bring it with you when you shop for your next guitar. By the time you hit the showroom floor you should be ready with key questions to ask the sales associate, and with our Definitive Guide in hand, you will be as knowledgeable as the sales staff.  

In addition to classic six-string acoustics, we also offer a selection of specialty models if you are looking for a more specific type of guitar design. These options include ultra-portable travel/small body guitars, nylon strings, 12-strings, baritones, 12-fret models, electric guitars, and of course you can build your own one-of-a-kind custom guitars.
