The Parts of a Guitar

Acoustic & Electric Guitar Diagram

Acoustic & Electric Guitar Diagram (click to make larger)

There are a lot of different kinds of guitars, but each guitar has characteristics that they have in common. Here is a diagram that outlines some of the major points.

I include this diagram in my New Student Packs when I take on new students. Now you can download a FREE high resolution PDF of this diagram for your own educational or non-commercial use. It’s covered under Creative Commons and all I ask is that you credit me and share with others.

Please also send me an email and let me know what creative ways you’re using it! Classroom photos are great too!

UPDATE: The PDF now contains a second BLANK diagram that teachers can use as a test or quiz worksheet. More value. Still free!
