Acoustic Guitars information
There are two main types of acoustic guitars out there: Classical Guitars and Steel-String Guitars. Classical guitars have nylon strings and produce a warm, spacious sound that is suited for classical music and flamenco. Steel-string guitars, on the other hand, feature steel strings (of course), and produce a clear, bright sound that's great for pop, rock, blues and country music.
Stage performers often use Electro-Acousti Guitars, so they can get the acoustic sound they like without having to mic their whole setup. The difference between electro-acoustic guitars and Electric Guitars and Semi-Acoustic Guitars, is that the build and body of an electro-acoustic guitar determine its sound, where the pickups and electronics determine the sound of electric and semi-acoustic guitars.
