  • The guitar is a musical instrument with ancient roots that is used in a wide variety of musical styles. It typically has six strings, but four, seven, eight, ten, and twelve string guitars also exist.
  • Guitars can be divided into two broad categories, acoustic and electric
  • The very first instrument recognized as a guitar is said to have been invented by the people of Malaga.
  • When choosing a wood for the back and sides, it is important to consider a couple of factors.  The harder the wood, the brighter the sound, and adversely softer woods provide a mellower, softer sound   Brazilian rosewood is a very popular choice for the backs and the sides of a guitar. 
  • Guitars can be constructed to meet the demands of both left and right-handed players.
  • The major components of the electric guitar include the bridge, the body and the neck. Secondary components include the fingerboard, strings, nut and tuning heads. A guitar manufacturing facility is, to a large extent, a woodworking facility, as wood selection and body design are large parts of the electric guitar construction process.
  • Raw materials that go into the construction of the electric guitar include well-seasoned hardwoods such as maple, walnut, ash, alder, and mahogany for the solid body.
  • Wood is also used in the construction of the neck, including maple, rosewood, and ebony. Other raw materials include glue to hold the pieces together, chrome for the hardware, and a nitrocellulose lacquer for finishing the body.
  • New-generation compact pedal employs COSM modeling technology to transform any electric guitar into a variety of beautiful acoustic guitars.
  • The technology that enables the Gibson digital guitar is an Ethernet media delivery system called MaGIC. MaGIC stands for Media-accelerated Global Information Carrier and is designed to replace all wiring systems in the musical instrument field and in consumer electronic applications.
  • A few things to keep in mind before buying a guitar:
    • Have patience- do not decide you HAVE to buy the guitar that day. Plan on taking at least two trips to the music store.
    • Maintain control- You are in charge! Don't let music store salesmen intimidate you.
    • Research- The web is a great place to find info on guitars. Use it to your advantage!
    • Get help- if at all possible, recruit a friend who plays guitar to help you choose an instrument.
