Know Your Guitar


Here are some basic parts of the guitar, learn by identifying each and every parts of the guitar from the HEAD, NECK and BODY (This will make you easy to look for parts or custom your guitar with your very own specifications). Some guitars have different types of parts and it sometimes have a lot of switches too (either it is a switch blade, a toggle switch, a push pull button or sometime the switches used are the same we used in our homes).

There are a lots of guitars and guitar accessories out there, so be careful to choose your parts. "RizMum" blog will try our best to post these awesome guitars and its accessories in the coming future.


To read this diagram;

1. The numbers on the left represent each of the frets.

2. The above letters represent your standard tune (example: the big letter "E" is the 6th string or the upper string while the small letter "e" is the 1st string or the bottom string).

*You will also notice that the line which represent strings in the diagram is thick at "E" and getting thinner at "e".

3. The number "0" beside the letter "E" represent an open string, which is not on the fretboard.

4. The dots on the right-hand side represents the marking frets, you will see this on every guitar either on your fretboards or just a small dots on the neck of your guitar.

5. There are two versions of fretboards here; the Sharps version (#) and the Flats version (b).  Though in this picture it looks small but to differentiate the sharp notes, I have put the sharp symbol (#) just BELOW and beside the letters, while the flat notes (b) are HIGHER. Memorize these two versions for your future references.
