One of the most versatile music instruments, the iconic acoustic guitar makes appearances in a variety of settings from the campfire to the classroom and the concert hall. Regardless of where the instrument is in use, the selection of guitar models at West Music is large enough to suit performers from beginner, all the way to professionals.
Choosing the right design and style often depends on the player and the performance venue. For intimate backdrops, a nylon string acoustic guitar may be the best bet. For a big, bold sound that requires no outside amplification, nothing beats a dreadnought. For larger concert halls, an acoustic-electric guitar offers the versatility to hook up to an amplifier
or PA system to get that added volume boost.
Different guitars acoustic and otherwise have diverse tonal qualities thanks to the unique combinations of the wood, bracing, soundboard, and type of strings. Steel string guitars produce a bright, loud sound, while nylon strings offer a gentler timbre. Players with smaller hands, specifically kids, would be wise to use guitars in ¾ and ½ sizes. These styles are available from popular acoustic guitar brands like Yamaha, Fender, and Oscar Schmidt. Find your next acoustic guitar at West Music, our collection will have something for everyone!
