Super Mario Bros. 3 Medley

I usually want to slit my wrists when I hear classical guitar, but this is top shelf acoustic shredding.

As for acoustics and body shapes/sizes, they vary as much as electrics do. From the beginning guitars have been made in different sizes and shapes, with the sound hold different places, different bracing inside, etc. There is no one single "classical guitar shape" any more than there's one electric guitar shape.

There are lots more difference, of course (we could get into truss rods, the different types of pick-ups, semi-hollow-body guitars, etc.--far too big a subject to discuss in 1000 character bursts).

A little Guitar 101. The one to our left is a classical guitar (uses nylon strings, typically wider fret board, lower string tension, etc.) and the one in the middle is a standard steel string acoustic guitar (higher tension strings, narrower fret board). Steel string acoustics really *are* a bit more difficult to play than a nylon string classical or electric because the tension is noticeably higher on the steel string. Both are easy enough, though.

As for sound, via electronics, an electric can be made to sound like an acoustic, but, too, an acoustic, with a pick-up, can actually BE an electric guitar. The pick-up is what *makes* it an electric guitar, not the body. You guys are talking about the difference between solid body and hollow body guitars. Electrics are typically solid body and acoustics are hollow body. There are also semi-hollow body guitars, electric/acoustic guitars, etc. I'll post links if necessary.

To Mr CorpseCrank:

Just FYI.. Before YOU start scolding someone you should get your facts straight.
Acoustic Guitar does NOT = Classical guitar
Classical guitars have completely different bodies and use completely different strings.....

Just sayin....
