These are the strings of course. All right? This is called the bridge. This is called the pick guard. This is called the sound hole. All right? This is where the sound of the instrument comes out. And then these little rectangles here, these are important. These are called the frets. All right? So this whole area here is fret number 1, number 2, number 3, and so on. This guitar here happens to have what's called a cut away. And that might be nice to climb up here, you know, on the guitar while you're playing.
