Frequently Asked Questions about Classical Guitars

Classical guitars exclusively use nylon strings. These come in two general variations: normal tension and high tension. High tension strings feel tighter than normal tension strings and do not move around as much when you play them. This makes them better for fast styles like flamenco. For general classical use, normal tension is fine. They are also a little easier on the fingers, making them great for beginners. Do make sure not to use steel strings with a classical guitar, though. Since classical guitars do not have a truss rod inside their necks like steel string guitars do, steel strings are not suitable. The added tension would damage the guitar's neck beyond repair!
Yes, we don't see why not! Purists will point out the very subtle differences between a flamenco and a classical. Flamencos are generally made from very thin (and therefore loud) pieces of Cypress. These are not typically used for classical guitar building. Flamencos also often have a tapping plate on the top, used for beating out rhythms with your hands, as well as a very low action. This low action incurs a little fret buzz but that is considered acceptable for the benefit in speed it allows. So, as you can see, there is actually very little in practical terms to distinguish a classical from a Flamenco guitar. We think you'll be fine with a well set-up classical.
Strictly speaking, no. Regular acoustic guitars and classical guitars are both tuned in the same way. This means the music will make sense on both types of guitar. Having said that, classical guitars do have a different neck shape, fingerboard and string tension due to the nylon strings. This makes them sound and feel different to standard acoustic guitars. This in turn affects the technique involved in playing a classical guitar. We recommend using a nylon string classical guitar for learning and playing classical.
The main difference is the use of nylon strings instead of steel strings. This changes the sound and feel rather dramatically. It also means that classical guitars do not require a truss rod within the neck for strength. Steel string guitars do and this is why you cannot restring a classical guitar with steel strings. The tension will be too great and the guitar's neck will snap! Aside from this, classical guitars have flatter fingerboards, chunkier necks and a body size that is similar in size (though not shape) to a dreadnought. Steel string acoustics come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
