About Classical Guitars

The classical guitar (also known as the Spanish guitar) has been around for many years and predates the modern acoustic. The main defining feature that sets it apart is the use of nylon strings. This gives the classical guitar an instantly recognisable sound and produces a tone like no other string instrument.

These traditional guitars can be found with a wide selection of wood choices, suiting players of all styles. They can be an extremely affordable choice for beginners and the softer nylon strings are a more gentle alternative to steel string acoustics. Premium level models can be found to suit professional players and those who like instruments adorned with special visual appointments. Suiting both fingerpickers and strummers, classical guitars have been used on countless records, ranging in style from country ballads to pop hits.

At guitarguitar, we stock one of the largest selections of classical guitars in the UK. With a large selection from some of the finest companies in the world, every one of our stores holds an excellent stock of classical guitars. Whether you are looking for a first guitar to suit a young beginner or the exceptional instrument of your dreams, we can help you find it.

What Makes Classical Guitars Different?

  • Nylon strings give a soft, distinctive tone
  • Simple and traditional design
  • Great choice for beginners
  • Ideal for instrumentalists and singer/songwriters
  • Frequently Asked Questions about Classical Guitars

    Question: What is the difference between acoustic and classical guitars?
    The main difference is the use of nylon strings instead of steel strings. This changes the sound and feel. It also means that classical guitars do not require a truss rod within the neck for strength. Classical guitars tend to have flatter fingerboards and can have slightly thicker necks.
    Question: Can you play a classical guitar like an acoustic?
    There is certainly no rule to say that you can't! Since they both have 6 strings and are traditionally in the same standard tuning, you can play acoustic songs on a classical guitar. It will sound a bit different due to the nylon strings but some may actually prefer that sound.
    Question: Can you use acoustic strings on a classical guitar?
    No, we would strongly advise against the use of steel strings on a classical guitar. 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 could easily damage the guitar's neck permanently and beyond repair.
    Question: Are all nylon string guitars classical?
    The use of nylon strings is a defining feature of the classical guitar. These strings gives it a distinctive sound and feel that sets it apart from the modern acoustic guitar. You can get nylon string guitars with electric capabilities but these are still generally considered to be a form of classical guitars.
