Classical guitars (also known as "Spanish Guitars") are nylon stringed instruments which are predominantly plucked, commonly used in Classical, Flamenco, Spanish and Latin genres.
Classical Guitars are particularly popular with new players and beginners, specifically Nylon-strung Acoustics, due to their ease of playability.
The combination of nylon strings and smaller bodies creates a more mellow, light timbre compared to the steel strung folk acoustic guitars, which are often played with a pick and sound louder and more resonant. Used during the 1700s and throughout the 1800s in classical music, Classical Guitars also lend themselves to Spanish, Brazilian and Latin-American music styles.
