Learn more about the Electric Guitar

The spectrum of the electric guitar is very broad: pop, jazz, rock, hard rock, almost anything is possible. In comparison to an acoustic guitar, the electric guitar can generate a higher volume through electronic amplification. Its development began around 1920 when musicians were looking for ways to make their guitars more powerful. The first electric guitar was built in 1936, the ES-150 from Gibson.
