The guitar is arguably the most popular instrument in the world. From your home, to the band room at school, to college dorms, to some of the biggest concerts the world has ever seen, the guitar has left its mark on the world. Now it is your turn to leave your mark with a 6 string acoustic electric guitar. A 6 string acoustic electric guitar allows you to experience the best of both worlds. Not only it is a standard acoustic for more intimate stages, it can also be plugged into any amp of your choosing to fill a larger room. This is because acoustic electric guitars include pickups for even greater range, allowing the sounds of your instrument to be heard everywhere. When looking for the right 6 string acoustic electric guitar, there are a variety of things to keep in mind before making your purchase. First, be aware that guitars come in a variety of sizes. Smaller guitars are perfect for beginners and players with smaller hands, while the impressively large Dreadnought guitar offers a more suitable challenge for serious players. It’s important to find the size that best suits your needs. Also, the shape of the guitar body changes from instrument to instrument. Some guitars offer a cut-away design with easier access to the upper frets, which is certainly something players interested in really exploring the fret board will appreciate. Different types of construction materials also help shape the sound of your 6 string acoustic electric guitar. Different woods can produce drastically different tones. As you would expect, the quality of a guitar increases with the rarity of the wood used, so it doesn’t hurt to experiment a little to find the one that is best for you. Once you have a body in mind, it’s time to look at the guitar neck. You will want to have a neck that’s comfortable and easy to hold in your hand. In general, you can expect the size of your guitar’s neck to directly correlate to the size of the body; the smaller the guitar, the smaller the neck. There is no right or wrong size, just different options to suit different needs. Whether you’re picking a new 6 string acoustic electric guitar or your very first one, the process of choosing your instrument is one of the true joys of being a musician. With so many options available to you, it’s easy to get the exact sound you’re looking for, so in no time your chords will be ringing out beautifully.
