Guitars come in all shapes and sizes, from the oldest lute to the iconic Strat
ocaster and Les Paul.
There are wooden guitars, metal guitars, plastic frame guitars, electric and acoustic guitars, and even
guitars made of rubber bands, tissue boxes, and paper towel rolls. Even with all these variations, the guitar
is still quite simple to explain.
