CLASSICAL GUITARS & NYLON STRING GUITARS
Classical guitars (also known as "Spanish Guitars") are nylon-stringed guitars 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 easier tension on the strings makes them great options for beginner guitarists as they are easier on your fingers!

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLASSICAL GUITAR VS. STEEL STRING "FOLK" GUITARS?
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 plectrum 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.
