Electric Guitars

An electric guitar is a type of guitar that uses pickups and electronic amplification to produce sound.

Unlike an acoustic guitar, which produces sound solely through the vibration of its strings, an electric guitar requires an external amplifier to produce sound.  The pickups on an electric guitar work by converting the vibrations of the strings into electrical signals, which are then sent to an amplifier.  The amplifier then boosts the signals and sends them to a speaker, which produces the sound that we hear.

Electric guitars are commonly used in various genres of music, including rock, pop, blues, jazz, and metal.  They typically have a solid body made of wood or composite materials, and a neck with frets that the musician uses to change the pitch of the strings.  The strings are made of metal and are often thinner than those on an acoustic guitar.  The use of pickups and electronic effects allows electric guitars to produce a wide variety of tones, from clean and mellow to distorted and aggressive.
