As a general rule, you can expect the size of your guitar's neck to directly correlate to the size of the body‰Û_ the smaller the guitar, the smaller the neck. Acoustic necks are usually listed as 12-fret or 14-fret, referring to the total number of frets that clear your guitar's body.As well, different types of wood will produce different types of tone for your guitar.
