WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING AN ACOUSTIC GUITAR
When buying an acoustic guitar, it’s important to consider the specifications. A few things to keep in mind include the size of the guitar, the materials used in construction and sound quality, and the purpose for the guitar.
First, it is important to consider the type of guitar you’d like to buy and the size that best fits your body. Consider your own physical characteristics, such as height and arm length. Some guitars are designed for smaller players or for travel.
MATERIALS AND SOUND QUALITY
The materials used to construct acoustic guitars are also important to consider. Wood is the most popular choice for acoustic guitars as it provides a warmer tone. The type of tonewood used for the body and neck of the guitar can also make a big difference in sound quality, so it’s important to find a guitar that suits your sound. Popular options include spruce, cedar and mahogany.
Finally, consider what you will use the guitar for, whether it’s for playing at home, performing on stage, or travelling. Look at the features the guitar offers and decide which ones are best for you. Depending on the type of guitar you’re looking for, there are a variety of features available, such as built-in pickups, onboard EQ, and more.

GUITAR CARE & MAINTENANCE
To keep your acoustic guitar in good condition, it is important to regularly clean the strings, body and fretboard. To clean the strings, use a cloth to wipe down each string after playing. To clean the body, use a soft, dry cloth to wipe away any dirt or fingerprints. To clean the fretboard, use a small amount of lemon oil to gently remove any buildup and keep the wood moisturised. In addition, regularly changing the strings can help maintain its playability and tone.
