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....

Those are classical style ELECTRIC guitars. Effects can be used and they are easier. Bar chords anyone? You don't hear many players that can play a classical well in a week of practice.

"They're way harder to play than an electric guitar and sound better too."

LOL What? Both have 6 strings and are played exactly the same. Put the pipe down ok? The sound produced is subject entirely to person taste it is not a fact that acoustic sounds better to everyone if that were true there would be no need for electric guitars would there... Come to think of it an electric can sound exactly like an acoustic but the same does not work in reverse.

How do you not like classical guitar. It is as much fun to play as it is to listen. It's all amazing technique..shame on you fancy

You seriously don't like these types of guitars? They're way harder to play than an electric guitar and sound better too.

Link: Super Mario Bros. 3 Medley [Rate Link] - I usually want to slit my wrists when I hear classical guitar, but this is top shelf acoustic shredding.
