The modern electric guitar was born in 1931. The electric guitar uses electronic “pick-ups” to be able to produce sound.
The pick-ups convert the vibrations from the strings into electric signals. The body of the electric guitar is semi-solid or solid, depending on the design.
The structure of the guitar took a great leap when the electric guitar was born, no longer did its sound depend on the structure and construction of the body, but on the quality of the pick-ups and soundboard.
The sounds of the electric guitar can also be altered to be able to achieve the desired tone.
The use of a guitar effects box has given the guitar a wide array of sounds. Today, they can emulate the sounds of a piano, a violin, even the sounds of the human voice. The guitar is continuously
widening its horizons.
The guitar is a very dynamic musical instrument. Through evolution, the guitar has made its mark on the modern music scene. From crude instruments with many variations, the guitar has become a real and much-sought-after instrument.
