How many of you play a little classical guitar.  I enjoy just relaxing and playing some classical on acoustic from time to time.  Like Fur Elise

Hello, I just want to know what is the difference between classical guitar and best acoustic guitar because when I see one classical guitar I see the same as the acoustic guitar.


First off, a classical guitar is actually still an acoustic.


However classic guitars have nylon strings, as opposed to...well.....a steel string guitar. classical guitars don't have a truss rod in the neck (for reinforcement) because nylon strings don't put a strain on the neck, whereas steel strings do. In other words, never put steel strings on a classical guitar or you'll destroy the neck.


That's probably enough to keep you going for now.
