Classical Guitar

The classical guitar varies from the “Spanish Guitar” from its construction, size, weight, wood and the sound it produces. The common factor is that both guitars have six nylon strings against metal strings used in acoustic and electric guitars. In addition to the instrument, the phrase “classical guitar” can refer to two other concepts:

  • The instrumental finger technique common to classical guitar—individual strings plucked with the fingernails or, rarely, fingertips
  • The instrument’s historic repertoire

The shape, construction, and material of classical guitars vary, but typically they have a modern classical guitarshape, or historic classical guitar shape (e.g., early romantic guitars from France and Italy). Strings are usually of nylon or other synthetic material, or fine wire wrapped around a nylon or other synthetic core. Historic guitars may have strings made of gut (sheep or pig intestine).
