How To Draw A Guitar In Less Than 5 Steps

Are you bored and looking for something fun to draw? Maybe you don’t want to draw something too complicated but it should be interesting enough to ensure that you have fun while drawing it. Is that right?

Well, look no further because I’ve created this epic tutorial on how to draw a guitar in just a few easy steps.

Even if you’re not good at drawing, there’s nothing to be concerned about because I made this drawing much easier and simpler so that just about anyone can draw it.

We won’t be attempting to copy the reference image detail for detail but rather create an image that we want to draw instead.

Anyway, this guitar drawing is fun, easy, and quick to draw. You’re bound to feel happy after doing it.

Let’s get started.

Reference Image

Before we begin, let’s break down this drawing to understand the reference better so that we’ll be able to manipulate the drawing however we want.

Guitar Drawing Reference

As you can see, this guitar can be drawn with the use of various shapes. We have circles, rectangles, and squares.

At the very top, there are nobs that we should include in our own drawing and then you have a long neck that connects to the body of the guitar.

There’s also strings joined from the top to the controls in the middle of the guitar’s body.

These few details gives us a good idea on where and how to start drawing this guitar.

Steps For Drawing A Guitar

Step 1: Draw The Top Of The Body

Step 1

If you would like to be more accurate with your drawing, you could try sketching out two circles or you could begin by drawing these slightly curved lines as I have done with a space in the centre at the top.

Step 2: Complete Drawing The Body Of The Guitar

Step 2

You’ll then want to draw a curve going inwards on either side and rounding out towards the second half. Once you have done this, the body of the guitar is completed.

Step 3: Draw The Sound hole

You’ll then want to draw two circles for the soundhole and this will later be connected to the neck of the guitar which we will draw in just a second.

Step 4: Draw The Neck Of The Guitar And Other Details

Now it’s time to work on the rest of the guitar drawing. You’ll want to draw two long lines in angle which cuts through the center of the guitar’s body and the the top of the circle (soundhole) you had previous drawn.

Once you have done this, go ahead and draw multiple lines going across on the neck.

Then, draw a rectangle towards the end of the guitar’s body and a square on either side of the shape. To finish off, draw four lines running down from the soundhole to this control panel.

The only thing that is left is to draw the head of guitar and the turning keys. You can do this by drawing a V shape coming out from the neck and then a line on either side that closes of at the top.

Step 5: Add Color To Your Drawing

And your guitar drawing is complete. All that is left to do is fill the drawing will color or you could leave it as is.

For this one, you can choose any colors you would like to have for your guitar but you could also decorate it further by drawing stars or even writing a special quote. It’s totally up to you.


Learning to draw a guitar can be a really fun activity and in the end, you’re left with a pretty decent drawing.

However, I feel this one, in particular, will look way better if you color and shade it in rather than leaving it just as a line drawing.

When you add color to a drawing, it can easily make it stand out and look it’s best.
