No matter what you do in life and no matter what’s currently going on, there’s nothing in the world that can replace the feeling of taking a guitar in your hands and just jamming out or strumming along to your favorite songs. And even after all these decades of development, the good old acoustic guitar is still one of the most popular instruments, both with music enthusiasts and professional players. You can just take it anywhere with you and play what your heart desires.
However, if you’re looking for an instrument that will both serve you well and have great aesthetic features, we’re here to help you out. After all, having an all-round great acoustic guitar is a must for some musicians. On the other hand, it’s not that easy to find something with such a high “coolness factor” that would still serve your needs. This is why we decided to do some digging and bring you the coolest acoustic guitars that you can find on the market these days.
No matter the genre that you’re into or the price level that you’re aiming for, there’s no way to go wrong with any of Fender’s acoustic or electric guitars. But if you want a cool acoustic guitar, then the company’s CC-60S is an amazing choice.
First, this guitar is made pretty well, featuring an all-mahogany body and a nato wood neck that’s designed to bring the best out of your performance. It’s also equipped with a nice walnut bridge, as well as quality tuners that keep things quite stable. Additionally, the instrument has an amazing finish and a classic concert body shape which makes it aesthetically pleasing.
While we’re at it, Ibanez is another great guitar brand that gives even a wider choice of guitar models that you just can’t go wrong with. In this particular list, we’re looking into their AW54OPN model that fuses some amazing and unexpected elements in one great and relatively cheap instrument.
This one comes with a mahogany top which is accompanied by Okoume sides and back. This combination brings a somewhat mellower tone that still covers higher ends of the audible spectrum. We also have a great neck made of mahogany that’s fitted with a rosewood fretboard. Additionally, we have an amazing open pore natural finish that gives this instrument a very pleasing aesthetical aspect.
When you’re thinking of the coolest acoustic guitars, one of the first things that come to mind is a higher price level. However, what if we told you that you can still have an amazing and great-looking instrument for an unexpectedly lower price?
This is the case with WINZZ, who are known for their affordable instrument, and their 40-inch guitar with single-cutaway body design. Although not a prestigious instrument, you’ll get more than a great deal with its linden plywood top and back and basswood sides. Providing you with a very balanced and “neutral” sound, this guitar is an amazing choice for beginners.
Knowing how amazing their stuff can get, we’re including another Ibanez’s model on this list, their amazing AEWC400. However, this one is a bit more expensive, although it provides way more interesting, stylish, and some higher-end features.
Taking a first glance at the instrument, we can see its sharp and “unconventional” cutaway, along with more ergonomic body design. It comes with a body that’s made completely out of flamed maple top. The neck is made out of Nyatoh wood and it’s equipped with a walnut fingerboard. It’s all accompanied by an amazing AEQ-SP2 preamp and Fishman Sonicore piezo pickup that let this guitar shine through any PA system or a specialized acoustic guitar amp.
Now we’re going to take a look at something completely different. While we’re all used to standard acoustic guitars made of wood, Lava is a company that makes carbon fiber instruments. These are designed to be so durable that you can take them pretty much anywhere with you.
The ME 2 model stands out to us, bringing not only a more compact size and resilience with it but also a great tone. What’s more, the guitar is extremely light due to the use of the company’s specially designed carbon fiber top. It’s somewhat unusual, especially aesthetically-wise. At the same time, they still manage to let out an amazing tone.
Traveler Guitar is a company that specializes in (you’ve guessed it) making compact travel guitars. But despite their smaller size, their tone, reliability, and functionality, they are comparable to any other guitar on the market. But what’s rather amazing is that some of these instruments also look great, like the AG-200EQ model.
Featuring a mahogany top, back, and sides, the instrument has a regular scale length of 25.5 inches. However, the body is smaller and there’s no headstock on it. Instead, the instrument comes with a tailpiece that’s fitted with tuning machines. Nonetheless, it’s a pro-level instrument that you can even use for live performances and studio sessions. And seeing how awesome it looks and hearing how great it performs, it comes as one of the coolest acoustic guitars out there.
