Even if you’re not very familiar with guitars, you probably know the answer to the question: how many strings does a guitar have?
The answer is 6, right?
Yes, guitars typically have 6 strings, but just as a piano sometimes has more than 88 piano keys, sometimes a guitar has more than 6 strings.
To answer this question, we’ll first look at the history of the guitar, and then we’ll look at guitars that have different numbers of strings. You may be surprised to find out that variances in the number of guitar strings are fairly common and some people prefer to play with more or less than the 6 strings.
