How it's made an Electric Guitar?

  The electric guitar is characterized by two types of body: solid-body and  hollow-body, although there are semi-hollow guitars.

The electric guitar is like any other guitar: an headstock corresponding to the top of the neck, where are located the mechanical tuning of the instrument and which are wrapped over the ends of the strings. Then there is the neck that houses the fretboard, similar to piano keys.

The neck is connected to the body, on which there is a bridge where the strings are anchored. There are fixed bridges and floating bridges (those where you indulge with tremolo-bar...).

The most striking feature is the Pick-Up, magnets that pick up the vibrations of the strings, convert them into electrical impulses and transmit them to the amp; with the knob adjusts the volume and tone of the sound, making it dark or bright.

Finally, there is a selector for the pickups, which allows the mixing of the origin of the sound from various pick up (Ponte-Centro-handle).

The electrical signal picked up by pick-up is transmitted through a cable to the amplifiers that amplify it and make it audible to the ear.
