    -Acoustic Guitars are made out of nylon strings.

    Now that sentence doesn’t make any sense. First of all, guitar has quite a few different parts, some of them are made of wood, some of them of metal. Now, i understand that this sentence suggests that acoustic guitars use nylon string, which can be true, but not always. There are also metallic strings available for the acoustic guitars. It’s pretty much the choice of the guitar owner, which kind of strings he/she uses.
