Fender and Gibson are, let’s say the good brands when it comes to electric guitars. But the electric guitar was not the first type of guitar made. The first ever guitar was made out of wood and it can be traced back during the 15th century in Spain.
As times goes by, there are hundreds of acoustic guitar brands available all over the globe but only a few stands on the top of the international stage.
C.F. Martin & Company
Martin was founded by American-German luthier Christian Frederick Martin back in 1833. After decades, Martin is still one of the best if not the best acoustic guitar brand provider in the globe.
Martin acoustic guitars start around $3000 all the way to $100,000 for the OM-45 De Luxe Authentic 1930.
You can also get the iconic Ed Sheeran X Signature edition for $699 or if you want the D-28 Louvin Brothers $4,666. There are over 100 guitar models under Martin alone and that is truly a lot to choose from, so good luck.
Taylor Guitars not by country star Taylor Swift but by Bob Taylor and Kurt Listug. Taylor’s acoustic guitars might be expensive but they are also reasonable. You can purchase one right now for over $600 or if you have the money $9000.
Taylor is known for its custom-made products manufactured by the finest materials available like ebony from West Africa, Torrefied Sitka spruce and tropical mahogany.
The brand’s Builder’s Edition V-Class K14CE is priced at $5000. This one comes with a silent satin finish, Gotoh tuner, intonation system and high position access.
D’Angelico has been selling guitars since 1932 and its first store was located at 40 Kenmare Street in New York City. Can you imagine that during those days, the store was only able to produce 35 instruments per year with only two workers?
D’Angelico acoustics will cost you at least $1800. The famous D’Angelico New Yorker Teardrop played by Pete Giardi of the band The Teardrops is valued at half a million dollars today. The guitar was designed from an image of a teardrop. There was only one Teardrop but then two replicas came.
