The three main types of acoustic guitars are dreadnoughts, cutaways and round backs. Dreadnought guitars, have a bell-like body, and were developed by famous manufacturer CF Martin & Company and has gone on to be considered the standard shape of acoustic guitars. Cutaway guitars have an indentation in the body next to the bottom of the acoustic guitar neck to make it easier for guitarists to play the lower part of the fingerboard. Round back acoustic guitars have a rounded as opposed to flat back, which is considered to create a clearer and brighter acoustic guitar sound.
