In electric guitars, one or more pickup converts vibration of its string to electrical signals. Electromagnetic induction is the source of these sound signals. We come across a brilliant debate topic among beginners and advanced guitar players. Is the tone of electric guitars affected by the type of wood used?
Wood plays an important role in determining the sound quality. The beautiful tone emerges from the vibration of strings through a magnetic field emanating from the guitar’s pickups. Hence, guitar woods also contribute to its tonal quality. The string might not come in direct contact with the wood, but energy from a strummed string creates frequencies that move throughout the wood.
Heavier woods resonate differently compared to medium and light-weight woods. It’s essential to select the right quality wood for your electric guitars. Here at Exotic Wood Zone, shop from wide varieties of electric guitar body blanks.
