HEAD
NECK
BODY

The head, this is where we have the tuners/tuning pegs.

The neck, has wire strips called fretwires. The space inbetween the fretwires are called the frets.

The body, has a bridge where the strings meet the body of the guitar.

The electric guitar has pickups and needs an amplifier to produce sound.

The acoustic guitar has a sound hole which produces the sound.

There are more parts to the guitar than mentioned here but at this stage this is all you will need to know to get you started.
