Acoustic Guitars

Searching for a good old acoustic guitar? The acoustic guitar offers rich sound and tone like no other. If you're not sure where to start, read more.

Acoustic Guitar Styles

Acoustic guitars are available in a wide variety of styles, from the traditional 6 string to the more challenging 12 string guitar. They aren't for the faint of heart. The 12 string produces a natural chorus effect and this sound can be heard in the blues or folk genres of music.

Try the more traditional 6 string guitar if you're looking for something a little less complicated. The nylon 6 string features the warm, rich tones that can be heard in classical music, unlike its steel string counterpart which produces a brighter tone. You can also check out our Acoustic Guitar Buying Guide for suggestions.

Our Favorite Brands

Austin Bazaar stocks a variety of Fender acoustic & Martin acoustic guitars. Our favorite Fender model is the FA-100, a full-size acoustic guitar with great accessories, rich tone, and an affordable price point. The Yamaha FG700S is also a favorite for entry-level strummers. If you want something more on the intermediate level that has more spunk, the Takamine Pro Series features guitars with amazing tone and character.

Tonewoods

The type of wood used during construction is about more than just aesthetics. Denser woods, like mahogany create warmer, thicker tones while lightweight woods (maple or alder) produce brighter tones. Sitka spruce produces bright tones and is a favorite for steel string guitars. You'll also find more "experimental" tonewoods like mango and zebrawood. These woods are dry and loud, which can come down to purely a matter of taste for the player. They are also considered to be more aesthetically pleasing to some strummres because of their more pronounced grain pattern.

Find the Perfect Fit

Acoustic guitars are available in a variety of sizes, from scaled down versions for the littlest musicians to full size solid-Mahogany guitars featuring legendary craftsmanship. Most adults will find a full size, 41 inch to be the most playable, while a 25 inch would be ideal for children. The bottom line in choosing the right size guitar is selecting what’s going to be most comfortable for the player. Lifestyle can also be a consideration for those who would like a travel guitars, or something that will fit in tight quarters. Apartments-dwellers, dorm students, and those "rolling stone" types may also prefer a smaller guitar, such as a parlor size or 3/4 size. The Luna Safari Series is a favorite for 3/4 size guitars with great sound and quality.
