What Affects Acoustic Guitar Price?

So there is a big range between the cost of entry-level and professional acoustic guitars, but what makes them different?

Some acoustic guitars cost more than others because they are made from better quality wood, have solid finishes instead of laminate constructions, and are handmade instead of mass-produced. Typically, American and Japanese acoustic guitars are more expensive than Chinese-made guitars.

Here are the main factors which affect acoustic guitar price:

  • Country of origin: typically USA-made guitars are the most expensive, followed by Japanese and then Mexican-made guitars. Chinese and Indonesian-made guitars are usually the cheapest. This is often due to the level of quality control and attention to detail paid during manufacturing.
  • Wood type: spruce tops be found on both entry-level and professional-level acoustic models. However, koa and more unique woods are typically only found on the more expensive models.
  • Body construction: there are two main construction types: laminate and solid. Laminate top guitars are often cheaper and are made by fusing layers of wood together. Solid top guitars offer better tone and sustain and are found on mid-high-range models.
  • Hardware: often you will see better quality hardware (tuners, strings, bridge, etc.) on more expensive guitars.
