Acoustic and Electric Guitars

Simply put, there are two different kinds of guitars: acoustic guitars and electric guitars. The 'standard' electric guitar for rock would be your so-called solid-body electric guitar, which produces sound with the help of a guitar amplifier plus one or more built-in pickups, and is able to deliver a vast array of altered sounds when hooked up to external guitar effects. Besides solid-bodies, there are also hollow-body electric guitars, which are commonly referred to as semi-acoustic guitars and shape a more open, warm and lush foundation sound fit for styles like jazz and rock & roll. For lefties, we have left-handed guitars in all flavours while, for bassists, we have an all-encompassing selection of bass guitars.

Acoustic Guitars: Classical (Spanish) Guitars and Steel-String Guitars

Unlike electric guitars, acoustic guitars don't need any amplification to produce a full sound. The classical or Spanish guitar has the more sound sound of nylon strings and, as the names suggest, is more often used to play classical pieces or Spanish styles, while the clear, bright-sounding steel-string or folk guitar is usually used in pop music. If you're looking for an amped up acoustic guitar with more power or volume to perform on stage, check out our range of electro-acoustic guitars.

Hire a Guitar

If you're itching to play the guitar but want to make sure it's your thing before committing to buying your own, or you've had your eye on a model for months but want to really try it out before paying, why not hire it instead?
