10 Best Black Acoustic Guitars
for December 2022

MOOZ Themes editors select recommendations independently, so your purchase through our link may earn us a commission.

Guitars come in all shapes and sizes, from dreadnoughts to acoustic guitars, which generally have thinner bodies, and electric and bass guitars, which have thicker bodies. But whatever type of guitar you own, you'll need a pick, a strap, a tuner, and, of course, a capo. And if you're looking to upgrade, you may want to consider a black acoustic guitar.

Acoustic guitars have a smooth tone, which is perfect for playing ballads or jazz. They're also perfect for strumming and fingerstyle playing. And, unlike electric guitars, acoustic guitars require no amplification, making them an ideal instrument for practicing at home.

MOOZ Themes Reviews has tested hundreds of guitars over the years, but we've only tested a few black acoustic guitars, which we've tested in the MOOZ Themes Reviews Lab. We evaluate performance, including tone, playability, and volume, as well as durability, including construction, hardware, and electronics. Here are the top 10 black acoustic guitars of 2022:

by Donner

Comes with all necessary accessories beginners need. Start playing right out of box. Good for beginners, professionals, adults etc

The Donner DAG-1CB acoustic guitar kit offers a great combination of features, quality, and value, which makes it our favorite kit overall. The entry-level retail price of $200 is hard to beat, and this kit comes with everything you need to get started, including a padded gig bag, a strap, a pick, a tuner, and a basic instruction book. The guitar itself offers rich, full sound, and the build is sturdy. The guitar feels comfortable to hold, and the action is high enough to be playable without an electric tuner, but low enough to make low notes sound distinct. The guitar's electronics are easy to use, and it plays well right out of the box. The guitar comes with a case, but it's small and won't fit all sizes, so a padded gig bag is more useful. The Donner DAG-1CB is a great acoustic guitar kit for beginners, and it's a good choice if you want a solid entry-level instrument made in China.

Ashthorpe Full-Size Cutaway Thinline Acoustic-Electric Guitar Package - Premium Tonewoods - Black

Ashthorpe Full-Size Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Thinline Guitar Package

by Ashthorpe

Incredible sound: Perfect for musicians-in-the-making or advanced players, this guitar features an impressive tone, standout projection and incredible sonics. It's waiting to be heard.

The Ashthorpe guitar is a first-rate instrument and one of the easiest to like a guitar we've tested. The Ashthorpe's body is made from A-grade Spruce wood (a strong, flexible wood used for guitar tops), while the bridge, fretboard, and back are made from Basswood, a wood known for its warm, full, and resonant tone. The Ashthorpe also has a thinline body, which, when combined with its A-grade Spruce top, gives the guitar a unique, rich, and resonant tone. The Ashthorpe's body is also 3" thick, which gives rise to a resonant sound, and is thinline, which, when combined with its A-grade Spruce top, gives the guitar a unique, rich, and resonant tone. The Ashthorpe's finish is ultra-glossy, almost a mirror-like finish, and it's extremely resistant to wear and tear. The Ashthorpe comes with two high-quality sets of strings, and, in addition, the guitar comes with on-board 4-band pickup/EQ (bass, mid-range, treble, and presence), which makes it easy for players to dial in their preferred sound. The on-board EQ also makes it easy to adjust the sound of the bass, mid-range, and treble. The Ashthorpe also comes with an owner's manual, a strap, guitar cable, and an ultra-light nylon gig bag. The gig bag is wallet-friendly, but it's thin, and unless you open it up, you won't know how much the guitar weighs (it's only 6.9 lbs.). The gig bag, however, is durable, and the guitar case it comes with is well-made. The Ashthorpe's on-board 4-band pickup/EQ and on-board tuner also make it versatile, as players can plug in and tune the guitar when practicing at home, or plug in and play the guitar on stage.

If you like the sound of a dreadnought guitar but aren't ready to drop $1,500 or $2,000 on a high-end acoustic, the Fender Squier Acoustic Guitar is an affordable alternative. The Dreadnought may not be the biggest or most resonant acoustic we've tested, but it gets a big, rich sound for its size and has a solid build that feels relatively sturdy. The guitar's laminated construction lent it a zingy tone, and the neck was comfortable to play, though it wasn't as smooth as some high-end guitars. The fingerboard and bridge are finished in a rich black stain that looks great, and the guitar also comes with a gig bag and tuner. The guitar comes with a decent case and strap, but we'd suggest spending a bit more on a better acoustic case and a strap. The included Austin Bazaar instructional DVD is for beginners, but it's a decent introduction, and it features some helpful tips and tricks.

The Glen Burton GA204BCO-BK is a solid budget guitar, and it's well-suited for a beginner guitarist looking for a guitar they can practice on. The guitar has a lightweight body with a cutaway, making it easier for younger players to reach the highest frets. The neck is made of plastic, so it's less prone to bending out of tune than a solid body guitar, and it's much lighter than a guitar with a solid wood neck. The guitar's electronics are basic, so don't expect fancy effects; however, the amp and tuner are of good quality. The guitar is very loud, but there's not a lot of tonal variety. The guitar is fairly comfortable, and the string spacing and fret layout are suitable for new players. The guitar comes in black and is pictured in the included case, but the guitar is also available in a white finish.

The Fender FA-115 is a solid choice for a beginning guitarist. It's lightweight, inexpensive, and has a good sound for a beginner. It's comfortable to play, and it sounds great for strumming and fingerpicking, although we found that it felt a bit cheap for fingerpicking. The guitar has a 20-fret mahogany neck, a mahogany body, and a rosewood fretboard. It has a built-in tuner and a string nut, a mahogany bridge, and ivoroid dot inlays. The guitar also has adjustable saddles, allowing the player to change the intonation of the guitar. The guitar is easy to set up, and it includes a gig bag, a leather strap, and a set of D'Addario nickel-wound strings. The strings and strap are made of plastic, but at least the strap is padded. The guitar also comes with a pick, which is a bonus. The pick is plastic and fairly inexpensive, but it's a small improvement over the strings. The pick also feels a bit cheap, but we think that a beginner will get better results if she learns to use her fingers instead of a pick.

The Seagull S6 Classic is an affordable, solid-wood acoustic-electric guitar that's suitable for beginners and pros alike. The guitar is well made and offers good, clear sound, and it's comfortable to play. The solid Cedar construction provides a warm, rich sound, while the Wild Cherry top provides a bright, crisp sound. The S6 Classic offers a number of advantages over most guitars in its price range, including a solid Cedar top, a gloss finish, a 1-piece body, a 12-fret neck, and a geared tuners with 18 extra-stiff tuning pegs. The guitar also comes with its own padded gig bag, a polishing cloth, and a guitar tuner. The guitar is slightly heavier than some, but it's well balanced and feels sturdy and comfortable. The geared tuners are also a plus, as they provide better tuning stability than tuners with friction wheels.
