How to Draw an Acoustic Guitar

In this guide we will draw an acoustic guitar. If you look at a photo of a guitar, drawing it can feel overwhelming. There are so many details and very precise lines. Still, you can draw it step-by-step and is not that difficult in the end.

You will be drawing a lot of basic shapes - circles, rectangles, and lines - that will help you to create the correct overall guitar shape. Sketch with a light touch as you will be erasing most of these "helper" shapes in the end.

In this tutorial, you will find each step highlighted in a light blue color.

You don't need any special pens or tools. A regular pencil, eraser, ruler, and paper are all you need. If you want, you can also color the drawing with colored pencils or pens.
