This is for another thread, but I thought it might be a good idea to have a diagram set out for other users to use as a reference.

By no means is this finished. Its just a rough start.

If anyone else wants to finish this while I'm working today, go ahead and post the pic here. I'll split the thread and make sure you get the credit for your work.

BTW... I would think something like this should be stickied, but we're starting to smother ourselves with stickied threads. Should this be added to another sticky (which one? it doesn't seem to fit anything else) or should I remove a sticky from one of the less promising threads?

Let me know what you think!

Why not stick it in the FAQ, like was done in the electric guitar forum? Good as place as any IMO.

Shhh (lol)... I know its not complete. I'm trying to rush it online... I've got to start working and don't have a lot of time right now.

If no one else tackles it... I'll get to it sometime, but it at least gives those "in the know" what we're looking for.

FWIW, I would like to have just the body alone.... where you can really see everything... same with the neck, back, sides, etc...

Go for it Mike. I know you can do it.

a suggestion.
maybe give a list of all the common terms for each part, for example, for the tuners, theres machine heads, tuning keys etc.
if noobs only know one term, and someones talking about the same part but using a different term, they wont know what there talking about.
just a suggestion.

This may also some how be incorporated into "tools & gizmo's)
As we were talking about before.
Such as that brass fret pusher thing-a-ga-gig.
(for poping a fret back into its groove)

why don't we just make a "glossary of terms" thread, and that we\ay we can include everything, including stuff like capos and tunign devices, and we can put at the top of the page "Hit Ctrl+F and then search for the term on this page"

maybe the thread will be too big? or get too general? i dunno, it was just an idea

There Are Three Basic Sizes

Parlor(000)- Parlour guitars are narrow at the shoulders, narrow at the waist, and conspicuously smaller than the other styles of acoustic guitars.. Their diminutive size means the sound is "weaker" as well. However parlour guitars are often noted for their velvety tone, and many people find the size and shape easier to handle. Parlours were popular with many early blues players, and are still the axe of choice among many fingerstyle players.


Dreadnaught- Dreadnoughts are probably the most popular style of acoustic guitars because of their versatility. Their big bodies and strong sound make them popular with everyone from "Kumbaya" strummers to unplugged rockers to flat-picking country kickers. Dreadnoughts have square shoulders on the upper and lower bouts, and are fairly wide at the waist. They project a loud, full sound when strummed or picked.



Jumbo- Jumbo acoustics have gained more fans in recent years, reviving a size popular in jazz's pre-electric days. Slope-shouldered and narrow-waisted, jumbos feature a lot of body behind the bridge, which gives these guitars a nice boost on the bottom end and a big, round tone. A well-made jumbo can project almost as strongly as a dreadnought and still have the warmth and evenness of a concert acoustic.

Small Bodied Guitars: The main difference between the 000 and the OM is the length of the neck. The 000 has a 24.9" neck, while the OM has 25.4". With a longer neck, you need higher string tension to get the same pitch, given that the string gauge is the same. This will give the OM a little more punch and volume, but it will also be harder to play. With a shorter neck, the string tension will be lower, and the distance between the frets will be shorter. Both will make the guitar easier to play.

What you pay for if you choose a more expensive gutiar, is the quality of the materials and the work that goes into the guitar. The finest pieces of the best wood goes into the most expensive models. Only the most experienced luthiers in a factory or workshop work on the top models, and a lot more care is put into the making of each individual guitar. The more expensive models are usually also more decorated, but that adds to the appearance, not to the sound. But you should notice that all tone-wood have their own sound characteristcs. Rosewood is more expensive than mahogany, but it does not necessarily mean that it is better. You might prefer the sound of a mahogany (or other tonewood) guitar, over the sound of a more expensive roeswood guitar. For a list of the most commonly used tonewood, see an overview at the Martin website.

Yeah, that's the Seagull I own. Seagull S6 Cedar, great guitar. The only downside is that it is extremely easy to scratch. Anyway, I think this thread is a great idea.

S6 plain? Or S6gt??
Either way, seems its one of their entry level models, I played one,,,great tone for the $$
They only have a very light (4 coats)laquer finish, I believe this is done on purpose.
I guess they could put on more coats, harder finish, but this would take away some sound Quality.

Now fow some reason, Mine has eight coats of High gloss.
If my theory is correct on it effecting the sound, I wonder why mine has so many layers??

Maybe my Spruce top can take more then the Cedar???

BILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

Thoughts on this please?

Last, Zerowley,,,,I like that model you have.
Tell me, what do poeple say about it??

The pic. I had to copy it from where you found it and then attach it here. I then edited your post with a link to this pic so it would show up.



I had to keep this somewhere so the pic would still show up in another thread.
