What is the difference between an acoustic and an electric guitar?

Acoustic guitars have hollow bodies that amplify sound naturally, while electric guitars require amplification and are equipped with electronics such as electromagnetic pickups. Also, many electric guitars feature a solid body design to increase sustain and reduce feedback. An electric guitar is a lot more versatile sonically whilst an acoustic guitar is more immediate. Electro-acoustic guitars are equipped with pickups, allowing them to be amplified during gigs and recording sessions.

Electric guitars tend to be easier to play, thanks to their thinner necks and lower action (where the strings are closer to the fretboard, reducing the pressure you need to fret notes).

How much does a good acoustic guitar cost?

A good acoustic guitar can range from £100 to £500 for beginners, while a higher-end model such as a Martin D-28 or a Gibson Hummingbird can cost significantly more but deliver the tone and playability a professional player would expect.

How do I choose the right acoustic guitar for me?

To choose the right acoustic guitar, consider your skill level, budget, preferred music genre and body size. Test multiple guitars, focusing on comfort, playability and sound quality. If you head down to our Brighton store, you can receive expert advice from our guitar team and get hands-on with our wide selection of acoustic guitars.
