Brand Matters the Most

Nobody talks about the brand of the guitar but it matters the most. A good brand means high quality material used, best sound quality and soo many invisible benefits. Let’s see the top brands of electric guitars.

  • Yamaha
  • Fender
  • ibanez
  • Juarez

Inspiration Makes Sense

Which one you should pick up, if it is Standard shape Stratocaster, Superstrato, V-shaped Guitar Design,  various pick up configurations are there and so many things. it is all about your inspiration from which artist or band you are inspired from. What type of music you love the most. 

But if have no such type of experience, and you want to explore various things in an electric guitar, then must focus on other crucial factors.

Body Style

There are 3 types of body styles an electric guitar comes in which is solid body, semi hollow, and hollow body.

Solid body guitars are made of solid pieces of wood. You may go with a solid body guitar, when a loud amplification and lots of effects are required.

Semi hollow body guitars are useful when the more of the acoustic sound of the guitar with high levels of amplification are needed. 

And the last one hollow body guitar is good for acoustic sound. Hollow body guitars retain the natural, airy and woody sound of an acoustic guitar, but are prone to feedback when amplified at high volume levels. 

Neck

Well, the size of neck purely depends upon the need of the player. It comes in a number of shapes like C-shaped, thin, wide thin etc.

Intonation

It is intonations which determines whether or not the notes play in tune as you move up the neck. 

If the distance between the frets (usually above the 12th fret) is off, the guitar will be incapable of playing in tune and therefore useless as a recording or performance instrument.

Number of Frets

fret is a raised element on the neck of a stringed instrument. Frets usually extend across the full width of the neck. The minimum number of frets in a guitar is 22.

Pickups

There are 2 types of pickup configuration found in a guitar which is SSS with single coil in bridge center or net position.

Other configuration is HSS in which you would get humbucker in bridge position, and single coil pickup in middle and net position.

SSS pickup configuration is good when you require blue jazz play but pickups might be noisy when you play in distortions.

If you want to play metal, blues, rock, and want a Stratocaster guitar, then choosing the HSS pickup configuration is more suitable for you.

There are a guitars which comes with 2 pickups close to neck which produces thicker sound and other close to  bridge which generates treble twangy sound.

A 3-position guitar allows you to choose between pickups and blend them. Some guitars have a five-position switch, which blends the pickups and changes their phase relationship to produce “glassy” tone.
