The classical guitar is the member of the guitar family used in classical music. It is an acoustical wooden guitar with strings made of nylon, rather than the metal strings used in acoustic and electric guitar.
In the JOYO showroom we have a nice collection of classical guitars from Valencia, Jose Ferrer & more. The classic guitar series we stock are ideal for those who enjoy a good pluck or an occasional strum.
Strumming generally is a less common technique in classical guitar, and is often referred to by the Spanish term "rasgueo," or for strumming patterns "rasgueado," and uses the backs of the fingernails. Rasgueado is integral to Flamenco guitar.
Machine heads at the headstock of a classical guitar point backwards—in contrast to most steel-string guitars, which have machine heads that point outward.
The materials and the methods of classical guitar construction may vary, but the typical shape is ideal for music styles similar to the early romantic guitars of France and Italy. Classical guitar strings were once made of gut, but thankfully they are now made of such polymers as nylon, with fine silver, metal wire or bronze wound about the acoustically lower (bass side) strings.
we stock a range of classical guitars in store, 4/4 650 mm (25.6 inches), 3/4 578 mm (22.75 inches), tuning is traditionally e - b - g - d - A - E in 440Hz
