What is an Emperador guitar?
Emperador was a brand that was improvised by Jack Westheimer (Westheimer Music - greater Chicago). They were first imported from Japan, but only for a short time. Then the manufacturing was moved to Korea. More Emperador models were made in Korea than in Japan. The original respondent here stated that he has an Emperador 12 String with a very full and mellow sounding guitar with surprisingly good tone for a laminated top guitar. He compares its tone to a Guild dreadnaught he owns. This is no surprise, because when Mr. Westheimer launched the brand, he wanted two things: Great guitars, and affordable prices.
I have spoken to Mr. Westheimer personally about this venture. He never tires of talking guitar history. Mr. Westheimer's goal in launching the Emperador line was to be able to offer a well-made guitar to the public at a reasonable price. They were inexpensive, but well made. Most feature what is known as "modified" x-bracing...an unusual bracing pattern with two braces running the length of the top, and others cross bracing. Westheimer is more well known for Cort. A later spinoff was Cortez (making use of the Cort name in a "Spanish-sounding" name). Westheimer is still in business today and has recently (2010) purchased the rights to, and is re-launching the Harmony Guitar brand.
There is no "Spanish" guitar although a classical guitar is sometimes called a Spanish guitar. A classical guitar has nylon strings but an acoustic guitar has steel strings. There are many differences as well. So that, No, a Spanish or classical guitar is not an acoustic guitar. SongScouting: Sorry. There IS no Spanish guitar - but there WAS a Spanish guitar a few hundred years ago - which would make it acoustic. Also, my acoustic…
base guitar= does not exist. bass guitar= a form of the stand up bass made to get a different sound and easier for transportation. Folk guitar= usually an acoustic guitar. not a specific brand or type. but an acoustic guitar. Folk guitar is a style like rock guitar, jazz guitar, metal guitar there are not different guitars, and style can be played on any guitar (obviously some are easier on certain types of guitars)
The difference between an electric guitar and an air guitar is a electric guitar is an actual guitar and an air guitar is imaginary. An air guitar is when people pretend to play a guitar with hand movements. An electric guitar converts vibrations of its steelcorded strings into electric current. These currents then go to a amplifier to make them louder.
yes it does you really need to have the right strings for your guitar depending on what type it is If you own an acoustic guitar, you need "acoustic guitar strings". If you own a classical guitar, you need "classical guitar strings" or "nylon strings". An electric guitar needs "electric guitar strings". And a bass guitar needs "bass guitar strings".
yes indeed you can use a guitar hero 4 guitar on guitar hero 5... in fact, if you have drums, microphone, or guitar from ANY guitar hero pack.. you will be able to use any of them with any guitar hero package which include ALL of the GUITAR HERO PACKS.. ** Guitar hero 1 ** Guitar hero 2, 3, 4, , 5, and even on band hero
