How To Choose The Correct Body Size for an Acoustic Guitar
Author: Ian-Bush Date Posted:26 July 2013
Body size can be confusing but here is a simple guide to help you choose. This chart works for solid top and solid wood guitars, for basic level
Do you want Volume, Bass, Clarity, or a small size ?
Our smallest body size is the Parlour size (OS60EQ, PMH100EQ and Little Artist all have very small sizes)
Small bodied acoustic guitars will give you a much clearer sound, but you might lose some volume and you will definitely have less bass presence. In small body guitars, we sell OM sized guitars (LSPS, OMC200EQ, JMZ200EQ, JMH200EQ)
A dreadnought body size will give a powerful loud sound, but it's not as clear. (LSP, AB1, DS120, DCA100CEQ)
A Jumbo body size will give heaps of bass, plenty of volume, but has the least clarity. (JM18012CEQ)
