It is natural to get overwhelmed. We are here to guide you through the "whats" and "hows" of electric guitars so that you buy the one that perfectly suits your needs.
Electric guitars demystified
Electric guitars are basically just like their acoustic counterparts, but usually with a solid or semi-solid wooden body and lots of confusing-looking switches, knobs and pickups. Before you buy one, you must know how to identify the important components of an electric six-string. Let us look into a few of them to help you make an informed decision:
Pickups - These are one of the most important components of an electric six-string, as they decide the tone of your musical instrument. These can be divided into two types: the single coil pickups and the double coil humbuckers. The single coils feature a thinner sound than their double-coiled counterparts. On the other hand, the humbuckers produce warm and fat tones that are ideal for heavy metal and rock music.
Selector switches - These switches help you select between different pickups to activate or deactivate them. Electric six-strings usually come with selector switches with different combination of pickups.
Volume knobs - These knobs help you in adjusting the output volume of your guitar. Some guitars have as many as three volume knobs.
Bridge - This component of a stringed musical instrument supports its strings and helps in transferring their vibration to the top or the body of the guitar. Different types of electric six-strings have different kinds of bridges on them. For example, some of the Strats and Les Pauls feature Stoptail bridges that are known to offer better tuning stability and sustain. There are also Vintage Tremolo bridges that offer good tuning stability especially after aggressive dive bombs. The Floyd Rose bridges give you the freedom to bend the tremolo up and allow great dive bombs. Wilkinson bridges, often found in high-end guitars, offer you smooth and less friction than their other counterparts.
