Guitars

The guitar is a stringed musical instrument with a distinctive shape and sound. In this instrument the sound is produced by plucking a series of strings running along the instrument’s body. For playing the guitar, the right hand is used for plucking the strings and the fingers of the left hand are used for fretting the strings. The sound is produced by the vibration of the strings, and then amplified by the body of the guitar. Guitars can be divided into two broad categories, acoustic and electric.

A guitar is a member of the family of musical instruments called chordophones. The most important step in the construction of this instrument is wood selection because it directly affects the sound quality. The wood must have a straight grain and must be free of flaws.
It is considered an ancient and noble musical instrument with a history that can be traced back over 4000 years. Every society throughout history has been found to have used a variation of this instrument. The first version of a guitar is thought to be a single-string bow developed during early human history.
