The guitar is a string instrument of the chordophone family constructed from wood and strung with either nylon or steel strings.

There are three main types of modern acoustic guitar: the Classical Guitar (nylon-string guitar), the Steel-String Acoustic Guitar and theElectric Guitar.

The tone of an acoustic guitar is produced by the vibration of the strings, which is amplified by the body of the guitar, which acts as a resonating chamber. The classical guitar is often played as a solo instrument using a comprehensive finger-picking technique.

The electric guitar was introduced in the 1930s, relying on an amplifier that can electronically manipulate tone. Early amplified guitars employed a hollow body, but a solid body was found more suitable.

Electric guitars have had a continuing profound influence on popular culture. Guitars are recognized as a primary instrument in genres such as blues, bluegrass, country, flamenco, jazz, mariachi, metal, reggae, rock, soul, and many forms of pop.
