When it comes to buying musical instruments, it pays to do your research—especially with guitars. At Whitman Music & Computers of Dothan, AL, they understand most people have one or two ideas pop in their head when they think of guitars. But, like some other musical instruments, there are a number of different guitar varieties. To get the most out of playing the guitar, you have to know about the different types and how they’re meant to be used.

Below is a guide to the four different styles of guitars:

  • Acoustic: There are steel-string and classical acoustic guitars. Steel-strings have a metallic sound for contemporary music, while classical acoustics create deep timbres that are great for strumming.
  • musical instrumentsElectric: With thinner strings than acoustics, electric guitars are plugged into amplifiers to play rock, jazz, blues, and more. They have a metallic sound, which can be altered using amplifier settings.
  • Keyboard: Also known as “keytars,” keyboard guitars have keys instead of strings. The keys can be used to play musical notes as well as a variety of sound effects.
  • Bass: Bass guitars have thicker strings than acoustic and electric guitars. They also only have four strings: These match the lowest ones found on standard six-string guitars.
