What’s going on, guys? My name is Joey Biagas, and I’m an audio engineer and musician for about seven years now. Today, we’re going to talk about the difference between a wooden guitar versus an acrylic guitar. Now, this is actually a wooden guitar. It’s a Telecaster Fender, and the body is mainly the hugest difference between these guitars. Now, this is made out of wood, entirely a solid piece of wood, and it’s obviously shaved down into a specific shape. Now, an acrylic guitar is basically a specific type of plastic, and some major differences between these guitars are the way that they last. An acrylic guitar is made out of plastic, so it’s a little bit more durable. It will last a little bit longer. You can store it in different types of temperatures versus a wooden guitar, you know, temperatures get a little bit too hot or a little bit too cold, there can be some warping there versus a plastic guitar, it can kind of withstand temperatures a little bit better. And of course, since it’s made out of plastic, you can get some cool see-through guitars if you’re going for that type of look or style. So, that’s pretty much it between acrylic guitars and wooden guitars, so if you do have any other questions, please let us know. Thank you guys for watching.
